PKF assessment day

PKF
#1

Hi all,

I have an assessment day for PKF coming up and was just wondering if anyone has any information about the day, what it involves etc. I know that there will be a case study given in advance for a written exercise but does anyone have any information regarding this? There seems to be a lot of information about the etray for other firms but nothing about PKF!

Any information would be much appreciated.

Hi

I have just taken a second interview at PKF…

You will be given details of the theme of the case study on the day and so will be allowed to do prior reseacrch and use all of those writtten notes in the case study exercise…

It consists of a 1 hour 15 min case study where you have to read an article and produce 4 reccomendations and then a 30 min chat with manager about thse reccomendations. This is followed by a 40 minute chat with a partner about everything in your application and maybe the case study as well.

Although being allowed to use the notes helps you have to have a good idea about them as time is still very limited…

Assessment day is not too bad; you have to re-sit the electronic test and have two rounds of interviews. It is very male dominated, and only on women who was the HR lady. .

case study was about a gym and first interview is based on this.
