    Got an "We have therefore temporarily placed your application on hold " e-mail from Deloitte... Incredibly frustrating. The chronological processing of candidates is so annoying. Can't be helped though. They find difficulty processing applications as it is, imagine them trying to process all applications and THEN making a decision on who the strongest are so they can interview them first. That would be more optimal in terms of the quality of their intake but I guess logistically it's not.
    On the subject of slow chronological processing and big 4...anyone had any news from EY?

    Anyone know how long Capgemini take to get back to you after the phone interview? I've been waiting a week now!

    Also rejected from BDO this morning. Literally spent forever on their stupid application crafting 900 perfect words and didn't even get asked for tests.
    any news from capgemini on your side? How did the interview go?

    Anyone know where I can find the annual report for all these consultancies? I've tried Companies House but I can't seem to find them. Any help would be greatly appreciated - it might just be I'm looking in the wrong section. Thanks guys x

    Out of curiosity, when did you send off your application?

    What sort of questions are asked?

    It was pretty much what i expected after reading about other people's experiences of partner interviews so I'm not sure how much more help it will be but I would say it was a mixture between general getting to know you questions e.g. what motivates you, what are you interested in outside of work and commercial awareness questions e.g. being expected to have a discussion about current stories and trends. I found my toughest question was, how do you stay motivated when performing dull and repetitive tasks?

    Hi all,
    I have been given an offer for the 2015 Audit school leaver programme at the reading office.

    I am interested to find out who else has received offers, in which sector and in which office?

    Was that for the Monitor Deloitte stream? I was initially on Monitor Deloitte but then had to re-do the Service Line Questionnaire and pick something else so I'm wondering whether I might receive the same email. I've been told to wait for first round interview dates. Was this for first or final round? Ps. Thanks for posting x

    Thats terrible . I'm pissed knowing that the same **** is likely to happen to me a little further down the line but If they say "oh sorry the position your going for is now filled, please pick another one" after passing the AC that would be an even bigger piss take.

    Oliver Wyman first round invite.... I'd given up to be honest. This is very much the last chance saloon. Had interviews with Bain, LEK and a boutique but didn't make it past first round for any of them. Gave up and didn't practice any case study stuff over the holidays but sent off OW as a punt and here I am. Rusty as hell and lacking motivation after the rejections. 10 days till D-day though. Need to pick myself up and get into shape.
