Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Mercer & Hole

Interview

Interview process included: online application with questions, basic phone interview with HR, verbal and numerical tests. Received a phone call from HR after all the tests, she had accidentally meant to call another candidate, but told me I was going to be called at the end of the week for final interview. Before the end of the call, she asked about why I had taken extra time at university, told her it was due to health reasons. Never heard back from them. I sent a follow up email and asked few questions but just got a response that I had not done enough to get through to the final stages.

There were several interviews and a technical test. The test was given to me 10 minutes before the second interview and then discussed. Final stage interview was with the partner and I got to ask further questions about the company. Overall, a very smooth process.

So far, only had a phone interview, which I assume you get automatically. They filter most candidates through this, and then let the successful applicants do the numerical reasoning and verbal reasoning tests.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Mercer & Hole (London, England, England) in Mar 2019

Interview

The interview process consisted of a telephone interview, which is followed by online verbal and numerical reasoning tests. If successful after the first two stages, the final stage is the assessment centre. In regard to the assessment centre, meeting members of the team which include some of the Audit and Tax partners, members of the HR team and also current trainees within both Audit and Tax, everyone ensures you feel comfortable. The firm even goes the extra mile to make sure refreshments and lunch is provided for everyone on the day, which is an added bonus. Unfortunately, I did not receive an offer for the role at the London office of this firm. However, throughout the interview process, I clearly observed that Mercer and Hole strongly abide by their core values and I felt I was updated promptly with updates on my application. To me, the team at Mercer and Hole seemed all professional, close-knit and very friendly so although it was not the outcome I was hoping for, I overall had a positive experience through applying to this firm.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Mercer & Hole (Saint Albans, England, England)

Interview

I was invited to the assessment day where they showed up 20 minutes late and couldn’t get the assessments up and running on the laptops. Very unorganised. Relatively simple assessment day, but was asked questions about current affairs that I felt were used to see if your political views aligned with the interviewers. Awful feedback, which reflects the organisation of the company. Aim higher.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Mercer & Hole (Saint Albans, England, England) in Mar 2017

Interview

Application form then telephone interview then full day assessment centre. The day consists of a short psychometric test, a panel interview by three people (an HR manager, tax manager and tax partner) lasting an hour covering motivational, competency, scenario-based and personality based questions, and commercial awareness. Numerical, verbal and checking tests. A group exercise discussing who to save from a sinking ship. Two minute pre-prepared interview and a 7 minute presentation done on the day with power point. Despite it being in St. Alban's they refused to pay travel expenses and gave some of the vaguest feedback I've ever received.

The interview was structured with competency based questions and a questionnaire about your characterestics.
