Is PwC’s hiring process typically so unprofessional and disjointed ? I promise I’ve had the worst experience thus far with these guys. Anyone else have a weird experience?

Someone I know had her final pwc interview on June 8, got verbal on June 12, and still has no offer in hand.. D1 is right. Outside of campus, recruiting falls apart

I had an excellent, fluid and expedient experience.

I had a poor experience with PWC as well. I had a poor experience with KPMG too but I still work here ;) I think once you get outside of the campus recruiting channel big4 start to fall apart with recruiting.

OP - the excuse was that the offer was stuck in approval. Then the firm shutdown last week, with no communication. Yesterday she heard that she should have the offer by tomorrow end of day. Still ridiculous if you ask me

@P5 I’m flabbergasted at that. Why would you wait *that* long? What was the excuse? Clearly they don’t want to hire the person to not have an offer in hand.

I’ve had terrible experiences with recruiters across firms. McK was perhaps the worst. It really depends on the recruiter and team. Other thing I’ll say is that lining up interviewers (and making them care) for mid career hires is always a challenge.

Yup 60+ emails back and forth with the recruiter. Had to chase him down at every stage despite partners finishing interviews very positively

@P6 Sure. The practice of verbally offering someone then going radio silent is highly unprofessional though. At best, you simply lose talent and don’t get a bunch of negative reviews on Glassdoor and word of mouth to their network. At worst, you build up anxiety for a recruit (whom you want to come on board and work hard, right?) and when they get here they’re still recovering from the BS they were out through. Beyond that, holding someone up like that puts their plans in limbo. It’s not the right way to treat people or do business, that’s all.

I had a similar experience when I came over last year. Our experienced recruiting team is awful

like

Most of the experienced recruiters are contractors who know very little about the firm and are only around for the season. They are brought in en-mass when the firm needs to go on a hiring blitz. If you aren’t getting what you should be getting, reach out to the client service people since they stay more consistent and can help follow up.

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
