    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grant Thornton UK LLP (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Really good experience. I applied on the 10th of July, and received a call within 2 days from telling me that my application had been successful and that I was being put through to the digital interview round. If you are unfamiliar with digital interviews, you will either download an app or do it online, and the questions will be displayed on screen as you are recorded in a video where you give your answer. You get a lot of prep time for Grant Thornton compared to a lot of other places so don't be too nervous, from what I remember you will get 1 min prep time for 1 min answers, and 2 min prep time for 2 min answers. There are also some practice questions at the start and you should probably run through these a few times before starting so you can get used to being in front of the camera, although these are not like the questions you will be asked. In the email inviting you to the digital interview they will give you 3 competencies, and they will ask you a question relating to each one. I was given ownership, initiative and adaptability but they asked me a few other general questions as well that I've listed below with the times.
    I recommend having some paper and pen handy so you can jot some things down as some of the questions are broken down into smaller details that they want you to add in. Come up with some examples of the competencies before you start and making sure you've really explored them and no the details of what you did and how you did it, what effect it had and so on and you will be absolutely fine.

    2 days after the digital interview I got an email saying that they would like a follow-up call regarding my video interview. They don't give you much notice of this which is disappointing. I was given the option of having it on the following day or the day after that and had to pick a 15 min slot from 10am -11am on either day. I am waiting to take this part of the interview now.
