    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruiting entails submitting resume and being wined and dined by all the firms. All of the big four are the same, so it's helpful to get to know the culture of each firm. However, more likely than not, the people who recruited you will have quit by the time you start.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Deloitte in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The recruiters with Deloitte seem very nice and are very responsive and quick with the whole job interview process. I had a phone interview with the recruiter...basic background questions, talked about the firm a little, and some other bs. The in-person interview, I met with two partners. One was in the insurance industry, the other was in the private equity/hedge fund industry. Both interviews went well, according to my point of view. One of the partners (private equity/hedge fund) said that I had a "99% chance of getting an offer". Fast forward 2 days, I got a call from the recruiter stating that I did not get an offer. I asked her why, and she told me that they "interviewed other candidates and felt that they were better suited for the role". (Just to let you know, I'm from a small/local public accounting firm, so some of the skills that I stated during the interview process might not have been relevant to the applied position.)

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    For this position, it is important to understand that you are a commodity. The interviewers will not be asking technical questions about the most recent accounting standard or what kind of accounting treatment a lease should get. They are interested in finding someone with a positive attitude, a CPA (or a plan to achieve it), and someone that they will enjoy working with (as you will be working with them some very late nights).

    Interview Questions
    • There really were no curveballs thrown at me. Like any other interview, it is important to be prepared for the question, "why are you interested in us?" and "why are you leaving your current job?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I interviewed with three of the four big accounting firms. When I decided to go with Deloitte, I asked them to match the highest offer I received, and they did. For this position, there is not much wiggle room, but if you are a hot commodity, they are willing to up your base salary a couple of thousand.

    Audit Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Deloitte in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    You have to constantly call the recruiting manager and show you are interested all the time. Unless you take the initiative, they will dismiss your resume. You have to do your homework about the company and the position you are applying for; many times the recruiting manager has no idea of the details of the position, and to your advantage, that shows interest.

    Reasons for Declining

    Since the recruiter knew less than me about the position, it turned out it wasn't for my city. I had to decline because I can't move and it was too far away to commute.
