    Interview

    Talked with HR representative, then one 45 minute phone case interview and one 45 minute behavioral interview. Both were very relaxed, the Case interviewer took time to get to know you before the start. Similarly, they pick an interviewer with a similar background as you.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (Arlington, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    An employee sent in my CV for a specific position back in late November, but I received an email stating that my experience was not a fit for that position and didn't hear anything else for months. I did eventually hear from Deloitte HR in late February, and the process went incredibly fast after that.
    I spoke with a recruiter over the phone, and after discussing my experience she immediately scheduled me to come into the Rosslyn office for a series of three interviews in one day. A week and a half later I went in for the interviews. I stayed in one small room and three employees (manager, senior manager, and principal) rotated around to talk with me.
    There were three interviews: fit, behavioral, and case. The fit and behavioral interviews were very relaxed and mainly revolved around my previous work and how I handled specific situations (how did you handle a situation when your team members did not agree on an issue?). The interviewers were incredibly nice and made me feel immediately at ease. The case interview started a little tense (I was nervous), and they asked me about implementing a new system at a government agency. I wasn't quite expecting this, as I do not have a technical background at all, so make sure you know the SDLC basics. It was a relatively short case, and I relaxed as the interviewer answered my questions.
    It really seemed like the priority was how well you present yourself and how enthusiastic you are about the position and the company. Remember to relax!

    Deloitte National Leadership Conference Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through my school career center. Met the recruiters at the Career Fair. A week later, I received an email inviting me for the on-campus interview. The night before the interview, we had a social with Deloitte employees. All candidates for the interview the next day were there. It was pretty relaxed, we played bowling and had pizza. I talked to a guy in Advisory (I applied to Advisory). At the social, I also knew the name of my interviewer the next day.
    On-campus interview. Before going into the interview, I met some greeters from Deloitte. They would try to make you feel more comfortable and less nervous. My interviewer was a Partner. She was the head of Deloitte Advisory in the whole Florida. She was extremely friendly and approachable. She gave me sincere answers when I asked about her personal career as well as about Deloitte. I felt at ease. She asked me one or two Behavior questions and went through something on my resume. But I felt it seemed more like an enriching conversation rather than an interview. She knew more of me and I knew more of her and Deloitte. I have to say, this Partner substantially contributed to the very positive impression I had of Deloitte.
    After a week, I received an email inviting me to the office interview which would be two weeks later. Before the office interview, there was a dinner. But this time, much fewer people and much fancier restaurant than the social before the first interview. There were 5 people, 3 Deloitte first year hires and 2 candidates (including me). It was the first time that I had a $50 steak. We just had casual conversation and they even gave us some tips for the interview the next day.
    The next day, I met with my buddy. They will assign to you one first year employee (called buddy) to accompany you through the day. They would answer any questions if you helped. They are friendly and willing to help as they are usually only 2,3 years older than you. There was a presentation and office tour. I had 3 interviews. One managers. Two Senior managers. You will notice each one had their own styles but overall they all were very nice (I really meant that, they are extremely nice). My first interview was the most typical interview, lots of behavior questions. The second one, lots of chit-chat before we actually began the interview. I asked her so many questions right after I walked in the room. I actually had to stop myself from asking her questions so she could begin asking me. I did not try to create an impression. I was genuinely interested in her story (She moved from another big 4 to Deloitte). Last interview, very laid back. She was very relaxed and asked me something on my resume. Half of the interview was I asking her questions. Finishing all the interviews, I was confused. I wondered if all the interviewers were so nice and there were no tricky questions, how they would identify the better candidates.
    6 days later, I received a phone call from my third interviewer (the senior manager) telling me that I was selected for the Deloitte National Leadership Conference (They would decide who goes to the national one who goes to the local one). Needless to say, I was really happy and grateful for the opportunity.
    My tips: 1. Make it a conversation. You don't have to wait till the end of the interview for your turn to ask questions. If they say something that interests you, ask right away. 2. Prepare well. Have at least 5 POWER stories to tell. It might sound like a breeze to me, but in fact I put a lot of time and effort into preparing for the interviews.
    Good luck to everyone!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    1st round: 30 minute phone interview with a senior manager

    2nd round: 2 hour interview process (see below)

    30 minute introduction (presentation, questions, etc.)
    30 minute case study with a manager
    30 minute behavioral interview with a partner
    30 minute case study with a manager

    Deloitte is more interested in your thought-process than getting the right answer in the case studies. Do not worry if you think you messed up. And don't get too ahead of yourself if you think you did great. Realistically, it's tough to know if you nailed the interview or didn't do well because there are a ton of factors that go into the process.

    I really enjoyed my interview experience. From the partners to the managers to the recruiters, everyone was responsive, engaging, and insightful. I'm looking forward to working for the Firm.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I first sent my resume to an employee of Deloitte that I knew. He then sent my resume to a recruiter who then passed it along to another recruiter.
    After about a couple of weeks I received an email to have a phone interview with the a Director and Senior Manager.
    About 2 weeks later I received an email to come down to the office for 2nd round interviews. I went to the office 2 weeks later and interviewed with a Senior Manager and Manager.
    Overall, with all the interviews I was asked mostly behavioral questions. With the first interview I had, I ended up having a lot of time to ask questions so its extremely important to be prepared.

    For the first round interviews there were two back to back thirty minute interviews, one behavioral interview and one case interview.
