- No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Deloitte (Washington, DC) in May 2014.
Had a first round phone interview and then a full-day final round. Day-long interview included several written tests (math, writing, analytical), a sales pitch, and a group transfer pricing exercise and presentation. Exercise was surprisingly technical rather than a general aptitude/intelligence test. Very friendly throughout, but long. HR contact was uncommunicative after the interview.
- Explain why transfer pricing has become an increasingly important part of multinational business strategy. Answer Question

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte.
I applied through my university's career website and had two phone interviews. A lot of the questions were about my past experiences. They wanted to know specific details about the tasks that I was responsible for and what I successfully accomplished during each of my experiences. They wanted to see a real interest in transfer pricing, especially why one would choose transfer pricing over everything else.

Two Interviews (one behavioral and one technicals); basic questions; but KNOW exactly what Transfer Pricing is
- Describe a time where you used quantitative reasoning to prove your point Answer Question
- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.
First round is the phone interview with HR. General questions that you could possibly think of, such as, why Deloitte, Why Chicago, Why transfer pricing, etc. On the face-to-face round, most of the people on the team are from foreign countries. I met an italian, brazilian and an japanese. During the lunch, we talked about economic dynamics and global issues - not only domestic ones but also european and asian economies. So be prepared.
- There's not really anything unexpected. Just not be nervous and express your opinions about the current events in the world. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Chicago is too cold for me:)

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in December 2009.
First round was on campus, was grilled hard about valuation, and random things about how to choose suitable comparable companies. Held my composure throughout it all and left the interview not thinking I would get a second round but I did. Second round was more behavioral based. I talked a lot about why I wanted to do transfer pricing- my econ background, the international and analytical focus, etc.
- How would you choose comparable companies? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Chose to decline because the company and division didn't seem to be a good fit.

2 rounds interview. 1st round: interview with 2 managers. Some behaviour/situational questions, few technical questions. They expect you to possess basic knowledge about transfer pricing. You have to be able to calculate transfer price and ROA. 2nd round: interview with a partner.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at Deloitte (Bangalore (India)) in May 2013.
It was very straight-forward process. I was called on phone by the HR and I gave my confirmation to attend the Interview. The two-stage interview was average in difficult-level. Firstly, the 'HR round' was held to understand the candidate. Once they gave an OK from their side, I was asked to attend the 'Technical round' in 15 minutes. My reporting manager held my interview for 15-20 minutes or so.
- "What compensation are you looking at?" 1 Answer
Do your homework on the industry standards when it comes to compensation. Never EVER quote a figure by yourself. Make them quote for you always. Golden rule is 'Whoever quotes first LOSE!'
- Accepted Offer
I applied through the website stepstone. At first it was a telephone interview which turned out to be really good. Two weeks after there was the actual job interview which consists of two parts: an interview part and the case study. Either part was really nice. After the ending of the job interview we went through the transfer pricing department and I had to chance to get to know my prospective colleagues.
- No typical consulting questions. Rather about life or the job. Answer Question
No possibilites since I just graduated from school.

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Deloitte (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in August 2011.
Started with a phone interview mainly asking about academic and career background, 10 minutes at the most. Next was the first interview, initially met with a senior manager and an associate partner. Consisted of the standard interview questions and discussions, very light and conversational. Later, had a discussion with a partner, this was mostly informative; he discussed the job, the opportunities that were possible, the work-life balance etc. About a week later a second interview, where I met with the same senior manager to discuss the details of what the job entailed, another senior manager from a different team to ask general interview questions (this, I believe, was more to determine fit within the company than anything else). I met with a manager and a senior analyst for coffee (again to determine social skills within the team). Finally, I met with the associate manager from the first interview to discuss compensation, start date and an outline for the first few months as well as future career progression. Another week went by and I got a call saying that all interviews went well and that I should expect an offer shortly. Offer came the next day.
Being that this is my first job out of school, I did not attempt to negotiate salary, vacation or anything else like that. There was some room to discuss a start date and we came to an agreement that worked well for me.
