    AERS Advisory Technology Risk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied through school and did two 30 minutes phone interview prior to the final interview.
    The final interview was taken place at the office and I interviewed with 2 sr managers.

    Aside of that, I would say it's often true that Big 4 only hire kids with masters degree but if you're good looking and know your resume inside out and express the fact that you have passion in the company. They will hire you although you're an undergrad. At least that how I got the job. I was competing with candidates with masters degree.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my university then received an email and signed up for a interview time. There was a dinner before which was super helpful got to meet partners and senior managers which made interview easy. The best part was getting to meet the woman interviewing me beforehand because when I went into the interview it felt more like a conversation instead of the first time we met.

    Summer Leadership Program Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed primarily because of my involvement with recruiting events at my University. I met the primary recruiter for my area and got to know them very well. They recommended I attend the Career Fair at my school and I was offered an interview the next day via email. I then attended a pre-interview social and got to know my interviewer (Audit Partner - Atlanta) which definitely broke the ice for my interview the next day. The interview was very conversational and about 20 minutes long going over my resume and what I hoped to achieve. It was followed by a similar style office visit interview where I spoke with several staff members about their experiences as well as had 2 one on one interviews with different partners lasting around 30 minutes.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter through LinkedIn. I was initially skeptical as this was for their Federal TS&A sector and my background is not technical. After exchanging a few emails with the recruiter and getting a few things straight I had a quick 20 min phone chat with him that night. We talked about my current duties, past jobs, etc. We also talked about salary expectation. This exact number was repeated back to me later in the process, so be shrewd. I have heard of people who were dropped at this point for giving to high a number, but I am not sure that is true. Either way, give it some thought. I wish I had stalled and thought a number through better, but I still am getting a great offer.

    Step 2 was hearing from an internal recruiter who set up a technical interview with a senior manager. This was about a 30 minute talk and was more a "fit" interview than anything revolving around a hard skills test.

    Step 3 was a in-person 3 round interview. Case Study with a senior manager, another "fit" interview with a partner and then another technical interview with a different senior manager.

    Advice: Don't worry trying to shoe horn yourself into this job. It really felt like it came down to two things: attitude and aptitude. Did they want to work with you and did they think you showed a propensity for learning. Have you done this sort of consulting before? Probably all the better. I had never done a case study interview before and I was really sweating it. I did my homework, but my interviewer was REALLY gracious and was more interested in how I problem solved than whether or not I knew technical jargon.

    Human Capital Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The on campus interview consisted of one behavioral and one individual case. Two weeks later, I received an email that I was invited back for their Blitz day. Blitz was at the Deloitte office and consisted of one behavioral, one group case, and two individual cases.

    Pretty standard behavioral interviews. The case interview was not a typical strategy case that you would see in a book like Case in Point, it was much more Human Capital related and none of mine included any numbers or quantitative aspects. That said, they still expected you to take notes and apply a strong framework (people, processes, technology worked well for all of mine) in preparing your answer.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rosslyn, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Rosslyn, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    2 interviews, each 30 minutes with 2 different individuals. Neither of these individuals had read my resume. One individual asked me questions from a list on his computer. One took a phone call at the beginning of the interview, lectured to me about how wonderful the company is, and sent/received text messages while I was speaking. The HR person was wildly incompetent: couldn't work out how to get me into the building, took me to the wrong floor, was awkward about introductions. When the HR person followed up with me, he did not give honest feedback about the interview and was very unprofessional. I would never work for Deloitte after this experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Typically, Deloitte hosts on campus interviews first and then invites select applicants to an office visit for final round interviews. My local office decided to skip on campus and only invited a few to the office for two 30-45 minute behavioral interviews with a Senior Manager and Partner.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Deloitte's Human Capital Practice, specifically the Organization Transformation and Talent (OT&T) team. The process took a month from the day my resume was submitted to the day I received my offer. Deloitte's recruitment process was the most professional and enjoyable I have ever gone through.

    Round 1: Initial phone screening with recruiter
    - The recruiter asked questions about my background, why I wanted to leave my current job, and why I wanted to join Deloitte. She also asked specifics about what office I wanted to be aligned to, my salary requirement, and preferred start date.

    Round 2: Technical screening with Manager
    - I spoke to a Manager in OT&T who asked questions about my technical skills and experience in organization transformation. He wanted to learn about particular projects and deliverables I participated in and what my roles were in accomplishing the results.

    Round 3: Cultural fit, technical skills, and case interview
    - Deloitte flew me out to the office I wanted to join where I had 3 more interviews. The first was with a Senior Manager who assessed whether I would be a cultural fit with the firm. She asked mostly behavioral questions and took the interview as an opportunity to get to know me. The second was with another Manager who dove into my technical skills and asked specific questions about projects, deliverables, and various experiences relevant to managing transformations. The final interview was the case study led by a Director. The case study was based off of skills that Deloitte expected of me as an experienced hire, so it was not difficult. It was a scenario that I had encountered before in project work and the key was just to stay confident and walk your interviewer through your thought processes.

    The next business day my recruiter called me with an offer to join the team. I had a competing offer from another firm and Deloitte quickly offered to match it. In addition, Deloitte had managers in OT&T call me to answer any questions I had and make sure I had an opportunity to address any concerns about joining. It was a fantastic experience overall, but I ended up declining the offer because my other offer was a better fit for me. Everyone involved in my recruiting was easy to talk to, respectful, professional, and sounded like they truly enjoyed working at Deloitte.
