PwC UK 2017 Intake


#2124

How far through the process were you?


#2125

Had my PI today. Was with two people not one! A partner and a senior associate. And had 3 competency q’s And it lasted a mere 30 minutes with 30 mins of questions. 95 percent of my preparation wasn’t relevant. The purpose of this message is so that everyone knows: expect the unexpected !!


#2126

What kind of prep do you do more?


#2127

I missed their call earlier today regarding my AC outcome. The voicemail said I should call that same number back. Have rung them 5 times since, no answer. Now I’m dying to know if I passed!


#2128

i have a PI coming up and would really appreciate any insight? I was wondering whether you could also comment on what scheme this was for?


#2130

Unfortunately so :frowning:


#2131

Yeah sure, as you asked so nicely


#2132

For the group exercise, be clear and concise when explaining your proposal dont talk for too long. Ask questions that help the group narrow down the proposals which shows youre trying to lead your group to come to a conclusion e.g. Do we think profit is more important or maintaining our relationships with current clients?
Volunteer to explain your proposal first, use names, dont talk over people.
Be confident.
I made a calculation error in the group ex but still passed.


#2133

Thank you so so much! I really do appreciate it!
Is there an email address I can contact you on, or private message? My PI is tomorrow so would really appreciate this.


#2134

Hello guys. Was just wondering if there’s anyone in this forum that attended the Birmingham Office Assessment Centre on Tuesday 16th Jan?


#2135

did you attend? if so, how was it? I have mine next week.


#2136

what role did you apply for?


#2137

Yes I did! It was alright thanks. Would recommend reading through this forum for tips as all of the info here was very helpful. Everyone was super friendly too which is nice! Good luck to you :slight_smile:


#2138

Hi~~I’m applying from management consulting as well, but I still have my AC on 25th Jan, could you please share your experience? I have not met anyone in the same programme yet


#2139

Hey, can anyone confirm if the assessment centre tests are the same provider/format as the online ones? Also if anyone is also doing the assessment centre on the 24th in London, let me know!


#2140

Have a PI at the end of next week and I haven’t been told who my interviewer is. Is this normal or should I call them tomorrow?


#2141

I asked and got told its not part of PWC’s policy to disclose the interviewers name, and i should focus on interview rather than interviewer lol. That was HR. Let me know what they say to you though


#2142

Haha wow that is weird.
