PwC UK 2017 Intake


#2224

it literally took 6 weeks for them to give me a date


#2225

I’ve passed the AC but waiting a transfer now only then will I be able to go on and get PI dates. I am worried they’re going to run out of positions and dates :frowning: they’ve taken 3 weeks to get back to me about the AC result.

  • Tests- Practice as much as you can, they are very time pressured and do not guess.
    -Report writing- Bullet points and paragraph structure, also put some numbers in the recommendation. write fast but as neatly as you can.
    Group exercise- the standard, make eye contact nod, you will have to do some basic simple calculation of profit= revenue -expense, maybe percentages. Just be approachable and not too dominating in steering the group towards your options.
    Each task is marked out of 6, 3 is the pass.

Does anyone how the AC tests are marked? From what I have heard they look for accuracy and number of questions correctly answered from the total attempted.


#2228

I have my partner interview for grad technology data analytics in London coming up. If anyone could send me any tips/questions I would be forever grateful!


#2229

Hi James, I’ve got a final round interview for management consulting summer internship, just wondering what kind of questions they ask you at the interview?


#2230

For those that passed the AC. What were your results in the numerical and inductive tests? I had my AC the other day and I feel like I did not do very well in the numerical test but did enough to pass the other activities.


#2231

I think they look for around 60% correct answers, not sure about that though.


#2232

I passed my PI for management consulting graduate scheme, but they said that they didnt have a role to offer me for an autumn 2018 start date as there were stronger candidates than me. I was sent an email saying that I will be considered for a Spring 2019 start date once all the other candidates had been interviewed in June, I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else?


#2233

How did AC go for you? did you get to PI stage?


#2234

Hello! I was just wondering if anyone knew the starting salary for the 2018 intake for roles based in London? Would really appreciate it :slight_smile:


#2235

probably 27-32k depending on role


#2236

The role is in technology, sorry I should have specified. But thank you very much!


#2237

yes, I received the same email.


#2238

has anyone had a PI for indirect tax grad scheme?


#2239

Yes I had one for the role in Scotland.


#2240

when did you have it and how long did it take for them to get back to you with the result?


#2241

I had it in January and they got back to me within less than 24 hours.


#2242

I had mine on the 23rd of March but have not heard back yet, the partner told me I should hear back in a weeks time as they have a few more candidates to interview. Haven’t heard back as of now, not sure if this means I did not score high enough and they haven’t made a decision yet.


#2243

Also what did your Partner ask you? mine was purely based on commercial awareness
