Advisory Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
McLean, VA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PwC in March 2014.

Interview Details Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter for a prescreening interview. During the prescreening interview, I was asked general background questions about my experience in the field. The recruiting also asked questions regarding my current salary and whether I was interviewing with other companies and whether I was further along in their interviewing process. She laughed when I told her my current salary and told me that I wouldn't get that at PwC. Found the laughter a bit odd, but I digress. At the end of the interview, she told me that they were going to decline moving forward.
