I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at PwC in April 2012.

Interview Details Usually a 3 stage interview process - 1st HR, 2nd a technical panel/ round and finally a partner round. However, as this was a PPI for me there was just 1 round with the HR Manager.
The interview was more of a discussion on opportunities, job profile, role etc and an insight into the structure processes and people at PwC.

Negotiation Details – Not much of negotiation - salary is decided on the basis of internal and external parity (benchmarking), more so on the internal parity (and thereby was lower than expected). Still decided to go ahead because of the opportunity to grow in the offered role.
