PwC tel interview 2013 Grads

#1

Hey

How long after the tel interview with PwC did you hear back?

thanks

#2

Hey,

5 working days after the interview

#3

Thank you!
Have you gone through it yourself?
Do you have to perform really well to get it?

#4

Yeah, I have passed one already in early October. I wrote about my experience on another thread, on this one - “PWC: London Assurance 2013;Got an offer, ask me anything!”

I thought I wasnt good but it’s appeared i was quite good. The main points are:
-prepare 2 examples for each competency,
-Two or 3 business news
-About ACA , and why do you want to study it
that is it!

If you have more questions please feel free to ask:)

And by the way, I didnt answer each question very well, I was very nervous and was shaking to be honest. English is not my first language and therefore I also made some mistakes while talking, so its fine. They understand this, everybody is nervous.
Also i prepared one example per competency, so i was creating the second example in due course. ANd i thought it was awful, but i received a good feedback.
So do not worry!

Thank you so much for such a detailed answer! English is not my 1st language either so I tend to loose my words when I get nervous… Just fingers crossed cause I really like their grad scheme and culture!
Well done for your offer! :wink:

#7

Oh no, I haven’t got an offer yet:) just waiting for my partner interview:) very scared, because pwc is my favorite:)
I have the same problem, when I am nervous I am loosing words and sometimes can say something stupid:) fingers crossed for your interview! Hope we both get in and then can have coffee in pwc building:)

#8

Definitely!
Well good luck for your last interview, fingers crossed for both of us!

P.S. Did they got back to you exactly 5 days after your tel interview? Or quicker? Is it the longer you wait the worst the answer will be or there is no relation between timescale and outcome?

#9

Yeah, it was exactly 5 working days. I know three other guys who got their replies even later after 6 or 7 days. As I understood this is because the telephone interviews are conducted by external recruiters who then send their notes to pwc. So don’t worry about that honestly!

#10
