Took about a month due to delays


Report answer

The hiring process is quite lengthy for PCG. Very time consuming and at times stressful. After applying, they will call you for an interview. Once interviewed, if selected they call you and congratulate you and request that they do a background check (takes 2 weeks in itself) and a list of referrals (5 of them!!!) of which whom you must have them fill out a form about you. After all of that, they call you and once again congratulate you, go over hourly pay offer, and give you your start date (which for me was 14 days from that phone call). Like I said, very time consuming.
