    I asked them and they replied 'I can't tell you honestly but we are looking at getting back to you within a week to a week and a half'. Did you have the graduate recruitment manager and a real estate partner for the interview?

    I hope it's sooner rather than later. I hate waiting! Hoping for a positive outcome. How was the interview? Were your questions competency based?

    Same I keep checking my emails! Did they say email or phone call?

    Yes mainly competency and then a couple of commercial ones! I think everyone gets asked the same questions as the questions are scripted?

    Has anybody heard anything from Weightmans yet? I noticed that they've introduced an online test as part of the process, does anyone know what format this will be? ie. Watson glaser, situational judgment etc?

    Nothing from Weightmans yet either, when did you submit your application? I also noticed on the website it mentions just application and online assessment before being offered a Vac Scheme? I always feel it's a bit unusual when there is no face to face interview or assessment before being offered a Vac Scheme.

    No they didn't mention email or phone but I assume it'll be email based on some research I've done.

    Yeh my interview was similar, commercial questions included how would you recommend the firm turns revenue into profit? Generally it was a good mix of competency and commercial awareness.

    I really hope for a response sooner than later....let me know when you hear back.

    Everyone has talked about other offices so I have not known what to expect. It was on 27 February, and I think that it went ok - fingers crossed! When was yours and how did you find it?

    Mine was on 28th! Considering it was my first telephone interview ever, I think it went ok. We'll see, I really don't know what to expect! Fingers crossed for yours!

    Every time that I get an email I rush to my inbox, the wait is horrendous. It was my first one too, I did not know what to expect, and I researched a lot and thought that it was going to be industry based, but thankfully I knew how to answer the competency questions. Did they say to you how long that you would have to wait? Good luck!

    Hopefully it was them then! That is what they told me, but I think that they were still doing the interviews last week, so maybe we have to wait a little longer.
