    Audit Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The first stage was a 30 min phone interview - was very casual and relaxed. Had a nice conversation with an audit senior manager, who asked the typical "why accounting/audit /Deloitte?" questions initially. Had strong answers for those, which comprised most of the interview time. The interviewer then asked one behavioral question and following that, I was given the chance to ask questions.

    The second stage included 2 30 min office interviews with a partner and a senior manager. Both interviews were very relaxed and comfortable. The interview with the partner was essentially a regular conversation - we talked about traveling around the world and he asked essentially zero behavioral questions. The interview with the senior manager was slightly more structured with a few questions geared towards understanding how you manage priorities, assignments and working with others on your team.

    Overall, the interview process was very nice, efficient and welcoming.

    Consultant - Technology Systems Integration/Functional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Deloitte Federal recruiter, with whom I had my initial telephone screening. The screening was 20-30 minutes. I answered questions about my resume, and what I currently do. The recruiter gave me information about what to expect in my next interview with one of their senior managers.

    My second interview was with one of the senior managers, who also asked me questions regarding my resume. In this interview, more detail was to be provided regarding what was on my resume. Expect to again discuss your resume, but have examples and go deeper regarding what's written there. The Senior Manager will ask you why Deloitte. You should have a solid answer. The senior manager also asked why I was leaving my current job, and what I was looking to do in my career.

    The next day, I received notification that I'd made it to the next round of interviews and was sent information of what to expect. The recruiter coached me on what to expect as much as possible; the recruiter is really helpful and supportive. I suggest you ask as many questions as possible.

    The last set of three interviews was at the Deloitte office in Rosslyn, VA. You are initially walked through a 20 minute Power Point regarding Deloitte and its structure with other candidates. This was done by a Systems Integration senior manager. Then you are escorted to an office, which will be your interview room. The three interviewers will come to you here. Expect a technical, culture/fit, and case interview.

    The technical interviewer is again, going deeper inter your resume. Know your resume. This should be easy. Have examples, know the technical terms of what you do. If it is at all listed, they may discuss it. Ask questions of your interviewer as well! You're talking about devoting 40 hours or more per week to this job. You definitely want to know their experience with the company and the job.

    The culture/fit interview is trying to gauge your personality to know if you'd be a good fit with the company. This interview was done by a director, and he/she will ask you about yourself. Do not launch into what you do personally. Keep your discussion to about you professionally. Relax and be personable, because they need to see this. If you're going to sit in consultations and discussions with the client, you should be able to easily establish rapport.

    The recruiter sent me information regarding the case interview. I also went to the Deloitte website, and reviewed their information and examples. I also went to YouTube and Google, and tried to absorb as much information as possible regarding what to expect in a case interview. I suggest you ask intelligent questions and take good notes. I'm not a great note taker at all, but this is something you really need to do. My case question pertained to requirements gathering. CIO of a government agency is looking to implement a new asset management system. Who would you look to to obtain requirements? What methods would you use to gather requirements?

    All of the interviewers were pleasant, and it seems as if they want you to do well. I felt like each interviewer was encouraging, and trying to help you in the process.

    Human Capital Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The process took 4+ weeks and initially started through the on-campus recruiting system at my school. I attended as many on-campus events that the company held at various locations at my school in order to familiarize myself with the recruiters, employees, and the company itself; this is highly encouraged because when it comes down to crunch time, they can put a face to a piece of paper and they already know that you have invested some time in getting to know their company/show interest. They do an impeccable job with these events (professional attire/the way they represent the company/offer food/deliver great presentations/hand out Deloitte branded items).
    I submitted my resume online through our school's website and applied through their website online.

    I heard via email that I was selected to the first-round interviews at our career center. This consisted of one 30-minute case interview and one 30-minute behavioral interview, back-to-back with a senior manager and a partner, respectively. The case was challenging, especially because it was my first case interview. However, if you stay poised, calmly walk through your thought processes and analyses, explain your answer in a structured manner, and are not afraid to ask clarifying/guiding questions, you should be fine. The behavioral one was simpler for me because I turned the interview into a pleasant conversation. Here is where you sell your personality to the experienced practitioner. Make sure you know your resume like the back of your hand and that you can not only explain everything concisely/efficiently, but also how you can circle it back to being able to use what you learned in your experiences at their firm. Most important of all, use this opportunity to show them who you really are. They are looking to invest in your brain, exploit your strengths, and refine your weaknesses not only for the betterment of the company, but for your personal, professional development as well.

    A week later, I was invited to attend the Blitz day at their office in Rosslyn. The recruiting team did a superb job of putting on this whirl-wind of a weekend. It kicked off by arriving at the hotel in which they had all of the out-of-town potential candidates stay at. Prospects, employees, managers, and recruiters alike attended an exquisite 3-course dinner that served as a networking event and opportunity to get to learn about the myriad of projects the practitioners were currently engaged in. The evening flew by and the next day proved to be a marathon.

    From 8am-3pm we each partook in a group presentation, panels to learn more about the company, and two 30-minute behavioral interviews and one 30-minute case interview with lunch in between. The case was much easier for me this time after getting sufficient practice in between interview rounds. Practice and repetition with different types of case studies is key to getting them down. The behavioral ones were again, enjoyable conversations that essentially sold me on the company. Aside from the interviews, this particular office boasted its incredible view of the nation's capital which was, without a doubt, a major selling-point. It is imperative to stay composed throughout the whole day, as your utmost attention and sharpest responses are needed to succeed. The day is over before you know it, and Deloitte is focusing on figuring out whether you are right for them, and if they are right for you.

    Half-way through the following week I received a call from one of the partners, extending an offer to me that I thought was fair, given my qualifications and work experience. Everyone was very helpful and nice throughout the entire process, making my final decision that much easier.

    Interview Details

    Very easy behavioral interview, no technical or case-oriented questions which do not define an individual's abilities anyways. Interviewers are extremely personable and easy to talk to. Know your resume, read up on the company, and know the role you are applying to. Be yourself and the rest will take its course.

    Business Technology Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    This is for the Business Technology Analyst summer internship program.

    I heard about this position through a recruiter at a networking event, and then applied online. I heard back several weeks later and was told that I had been selected for the first round of interviews.

    The first round consisted of a 30 minute behavioral phone interview where I spoke with one of the directors of the department. He went through my resume and asked why I wanted to work at Deloitte. He also asked a few behavioral questions which weren't too difficult. I listed a couple of the tricky ones below.

    Two days later I received a call saying that I had been selected for the second round of interviews which were at the Deloitte office. The format of this round was two 1:1 case interviews, each 30 minutes long. The questions were similar to the sample case interviews that are online, so I found that helpful to prepare. The interviewers also went through my resume and asked me some questions pertaining to my past work experience.

    All of the interviewers were extremely nice and easy to talk to which took some of the pressure off. I followed up with an email and heard back about a week later where I was offered the position.

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

    Interview Details

    Overall the interview process was very thorough and the individuals I spoke with were very approachable and genuinely interested in providing the opportunity for mutual learning between the candidate and the company. The interview process took place on campus and consisted of two rounds. All candidates asked to interview had a 30 min behavioral interview and then a 30 min case interview. Candidates who were called back to do a second round of interviews had again a 30 min behavioral interview and a 30 min case interview. I had a lot of fun with the cases and it was great to prepare with the online materials that Deloitte posts. The behavioral interview was very straightforward. I know many career counselors recommend Case in Point to prepare, however I did not feel like that was useful.
