    PFO from HSF with a lengthy email about what they are looking for. "There are many more high calibre applicants than we can accommodate and you should not be unduly discouraged." Kinda hard not to be discouraged with all PFOs so far.

    Has anyone heard back from the PwC Legal post telephone interview?
    Nope! Mine was first thing on Monday morning. Not holding out much hope though as mine wasn't brilliant. When was yours? Was told I'd hear within a few days so expecting it imminently.

    DWF interview. However, they wrote:

    "However, as you have noted that you are available to start a training contract in 2015/ 2016 we would like to fast-track your application and progress you to an interview for a Training Contract instead of the Vacation Scheme."

    Is that quite a common procedure to allow them to get an understanding of more candidates?

    I had this reply as well. I assume its because the process for recruiting for TC ends before the Vac Schemes take place, so what they're thinking is if they don't want to give you a TC they wouldn't take you on the Vac Scheme. I'm not complaining it's my first interview!!!

    Hi, mine was Wednesday morning and it was awful! I was asked to give several examples for the same questions. Also, I might have misinterpreted one question for the global acumen value, because the interviewer asked me to give three different examples.
    Why did you think that yours wasn't brilliant?

    Mine was also first thing Monday. Not heard back. The interviewer said we should hear back early next week.

    Could anyone tell me when the Slater and Gordon opening/deadline was? I know I've missed the deadline but wanted to know for next time.. Also do they recruit one year in advance, it all is very vague and unclear on their website and says 2014/2015 VS/TC have closed but says nothing about 2016/17.. Thanks for any help!

    I've found their website very vague too. Everytime I checked their website it just said "updates regarding future Training Contracts will be posted on this page in early 2015" but yet to see any other info. Also interested to hear about their deadlines!

    Well after every answer I gave he asked 'and what did you learn from that'? Which makes me think I wasn't giving him the answer he needed each time. I had usually sort of answered that in the question so I had to try not to repeat myself and I ended up doing exactly that! I didn't really get a chance to show how much I knew about the firm or the PwC network so I was disappointed. Plus didn't get asked anything about commercial awareness/a recent business story which I had expected!

    Hi what office was this for? I also applied for the DWF vac scheme (Manchester) and have an interview but they did not say that about the TC direct and I also ticked available 2015.

    Thanks
