IT Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – It was an on-campus interview. I immediately interviewed with two employees then was asked to go to the main office to interview with a partner. The whole process was fairly straightforward and didn't required any particular skill. It seemed to be more focused on your ability to analyze a problem and make sense of it.
Interview Question – You have a customer who presents a problem to you. Present your plan of attack and explain the way you approach the problem. View Answer
Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – On-campus interview with two different Deloitte professionals - each interview was roughly 30 minutes. Overall, the interviews were pretty easy and casual. Would have had an offer, but was "too young" based on how many college credit hours I had.
Interview Question – Give an example of a time you worked with a difficult person and how you handled the situation. Answer Question
Summer Leadership Program Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – The interview has two rounds. The first round is on campus and the second round is in house. Both are one-on-one behavioral interviews. Interviewer had a list of questions to ask, but basically covering everything on the resume.
Interview Question – Ask me a research-related experience Answer Question
Tax Associate Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Deloitte
Interview Details – OCI to screener interview. but they sent a Manager from valuation who didn't care too much about the interview process. He made the process a little awkward for some people because he asked really odd questions for law students. My experience was a little better, but as I said below, our OCI didn't yield any call backs.
Interview Question – It wasn't too difficult, mostly a conversation. Answer Question
Senior Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Deloitte in June 2014.
Interview Details – By applying on-line and filling out the Deloitte-taleo database I had a first call with the responsible recruiter. After one week an interview was scheduled with a senior manager at Deloitte after being selected by the recruiting department. However, the interviewer was not prepared for the particular job listing.
Interview Question – None. Questions about background and experience. Furthermore questions were asked about what you expect from the position. View Answer
Transfer Pricing Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Deloitte in May 2014.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Explain why transfer pricing has become an increasingly important part of multinational business strategy. Answer Question
Senior Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – They had one round of interviews in college and had a technology case. The case was similar to the one outlined in their example cases. Although they were seeing how well you think on the go instead of coming prepared.
Interview Question – The case was very difficult. Also, avoid saying anything bad about your previous employer even if you hated it. Just say they were the best employers in the world. View Answer
Business Analyst - Strategy and Operations Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Deloitte
Interview Details – 2 rounds -
First round: 2 phone interviews, 30 min each, one behavioral and one case study
- I believe this is the format for non-target school candidates
Second round: Hour long case study at office
- Didn't make it to this round, but this is what I believe it consists of
Interview Question – Behavioral questions are basic and expected. Case study is different from other firms Answer Question
Senior Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in February 2014.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a Deloitte Consulting recruiter through LinkedIn - I have 10+ years experience implementing government healthcare systems and 20+ years of solid IT project experience.
I had two calls with the Deloitte recruiter and both went very well. Then I had a technical interview with a senior manager who had lead the technical design work for a very large project they had bid on - the project they were recruiting for - in government healthcare. According to the recruiter, I did extremely well and he schedule the local office visit.
The day before the office interview visit, the recruiter called me and said he had forgotten to ask my current salary. I told him my current salary and there was a long silence. I asked if my current salary was inline with their compensation plan and he said it would not be an issue. The tone of the recruiter's voice was noticably different than it was at the beginning of the call.
The next day I went to the office and started with the case study. The interviewer was young and a bit nerdy but appeared to be very smart. The case study was not related to healthcare IT but according to the recruiter, I nailed it. He said that most people who fail, fail on the case study portion of the interview.
The other two interviews were rather strange. One guy was a partner. He was about my age but appeared to be at least 20 years older. He spent most of our scheduled 30 minutes telling me about the previous day when he arrived at the airport and found the tire on his new MB was flat. He was outraged that the dealer wanted to charge him $1,000 for a new rim - and how he couldn't possibly have bent a rim on his new expensive car. I asked him a lot of questions about why the firm wanted to get into the government healthcare IT space. He admitted that he had no healthcare experience and his response was basically - we've studied the market and that's where the money is.
The other guy, a senior manager, appeared to be recovering from a serious case of jet lag. He asked a few strange questions. He was reading them from his laptop and even he found them difficult to read out loud. They appeared to be a bunch of buzz words strung together in an attempt to form a hypothetical question. I obviously bombed this interview because the questions were so absurd.
I have a master degree from a top tier school and significant industry experience and I thought that two of the three interviews were a total waste of time. This was an opportunity for Deloitte to impress me and to sell me on coming to work for them. After all, they are trying to break into a mature industry that my current company has dominated for three decades. Instead, they appeared to have one bright young consultant and two burned out members of their 'leadership" team who are showing up just to fulfill their obligatory interview time on Friday after a week of being out of town.
I left the interview knowing that I would probably not receive an offer and if I did, I was probably not going to accept it. I was disappointed that I had wasted a day off, but there was one benefit from going through the interview experience. If Deloitte's arcane interview process does not change, and they are only interested in hiring androids, then the companies that dominate the healthcare IT industry do not need to worry about Deloitte winning any new business.
