    ERS Consultant Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter. We went through the normal phone screen. The recruiter did a quick walkthrough of my resume and told me about the position. It took about a week to hear back from the hiring manager. The whole process is through your recruiter. The hiring manager lets the recruiter know the go/no-go decision and the recruiter contacts you. Then your interviews are set up and the recruiter lets you know tithe decision. The recruiter will also do the negotiation for you to the partners. Let the recruiter know everything you can think of about yourself that can help get you the best initial offer from the partners.

    Once the recruiter let me know I was approved by the hiring manager, I had 4 interviews in the office back to back. They put you in an interview room and the interviewers rotate between all the candidates there. Interviews: Two behavioral interviews (one with a manager and one with a senior manager). One technical interview, but it was just going through my resume and talking about my experiences. The interviewer would pick a line and say "Tell me more about what that entails". You definitely need to know your resume. One partner interview. It was really just a conversation about the culture. It was to make sure I fit in. I was only asked one question and that was "what areas within ERS are you interested in."(Make sure you have done your research into what the area does)

    All the interviews were exactly 30 minutes and they stop on time. They were all like conversations. The behavioral interviewers would ask a "tell me about a time when..." question, I would give my answer and then we would discuss how that applies to the job. I was asked questions like tell me how you have handled working with a difficult team member; why Deloitte (everyone asked me this); why this position; tell me about a time you have worked with a difficult client. Because of all the discussion in between and the time limit, I was not asked that many questions from each interviewer.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me how you would handle a situation where no senior or manager is available and the client needs an answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I received a offer higher than my current pay and asked for a sign on bonus which I got. I think it does not hurt to ask since they have already shown their interest by giving you an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Deloitte in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process was simple after the initial interview. If you get invited to dinner, you are pretty much in. Loved their attitude towards entry level position. One of the few companies that realize "yes you are smart and capable and we understand since you never worked in this field that you dont know what to do"

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school's portal. Received an email which stated the 1st round interview selections, as well as a dinner the night before.

    The email consisted of everyone's names who has been picked and the process for which the interviews will be conducted.

    1st round was with two managers 30 minutes back-to-back. Two candidates are selected for that hour window, and they switch with each other midway through. This might create a tunnel vision to compete with one person, which is not true.

    Both interviewers asked about behaviors/team work experience with allotted time for questions at the end. One was more focused on the resume.

    Received an email one week later with no offer for an office visit.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got the first interview through a current employee. The phone screening was about thirty minutes long. They asked me basic behavioral questions, mostly about experiences I had working in teams, any problems we ran into along the way and how I dealt with them. The in person interview was about a week later. The process consisted of a dinner with two consultants and three other candidates. We were put up in a hotel and then had interviews the following morning. There was about an hour presentation, then two interviews, one with a manager and another with a partner. In between these interviews there was a networking event in which the candidates could ask questions.
