    Hey People. Has anyone had a first round interview with BDO Stoy? Ive had interviews with KPMG and Deloitte and would I be right in thinking it will follow the same competency based style, i.e example of teamwork, leadership etc??

    Cheers Guys

    Yes same kinda process, but much more chilled out! ask you about your a-levels (or equivalent) and why you chose them. And about 3 or 4 competency based Q's! more like a chat that an interview.

    as said it will be competency based for a first round

    i think you may get better answers (in terms of past experiences at BDO etc) in the accountancy forum

    Mine was like that too. There were one or two competency questions but for the most part it was more like a relaxed chat.

    umm...it'll be along the lines of previous interviews but prepare for BDO based questions... and questions about why you'd prefer to work for BDO than for Big 4 companies. These kind of questions are difficult to field... so really think about why working for a slightly smaller firm, could be of benefit.. you might find this wiki on BDO interview questions useful - http://www.wikijob.co.uk/wiki/bdo-st...view-questions - good luck dude
