I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in April 2014.
Interview Details – Applied using a headhunter. Process took 2 months. I had five interviews with 1 director, 3 senior managers and 1 partner. The whole process was in two phases and Deloitte was very friendly and "down to earth" regarding the interview.

* A math and english computer based excercise
* One interview and case study with a manager
* An assessment centre comprising of a written exercise, a computer based excercise, a group excercise and an interview with a partner
Interview Question – Nothing really that I didn't expect - I got asked a lot of questions on why I chose the option I chose in the written excercise and when I said that I didn't go for the most obvious answer I got a lot of questions and a discussion around why I think that option was the most obvious. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation
Risk Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2014.

Good leadership examples
Good knowledge of your industry and the challenges it's facing
Example of weakness
What you want from working there
Good risk knowledge
What would get in the way of you achieving your goals- try not to say other people or external influences. Never good to attribute blame to others
Most of all just be yourself
Build good rapport from moment you meet to just before the interview questions start
Make light chat after interview to leave it on friendly note
Interview Question – Nothing in particular Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No comment
Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Deloitte in February 2014.
Interview Details – Applied for business analysis role in A&A -3 stages - first an informal conversation with HR. 2nd meant to be f2f with director but due to unavailability in london was conducted over phone. AC is exactly what is described on the forum. Most of my time went in chasing HR to get the dates. Process went in for 3 months due to Xmas in between
Interview Question – Nothing unusual Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Too low and below my current level.
Senior Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2014.
Interview Details – Initial telephone interview, face-to-face technical interview followed by assessment centre. Assessment centre consisted of group exercise, written exercise, case study presentation and 2 x senior face-to-face interviews.
Interview Question – Whole process was designed to examine every area of your consulting and technical experience. Everyone is different, but I found it difficult in the written exercise to adopt the correct tone. Exercise consisted of a long case study and slide pack, and some blank paper on which to write an open letter to the project stakeholders. Answer Question
Advisor Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – I put in my application and got an email response the next day to state my visa status, salary expectation, other jobs I'm pursuing, and a date and time to call me for an interview.
The telephone interview Questions were what can u bring to deloitte, why you, why deloitte, why do you want to leave your current job, when have u worked in a team, difficult decision made. They're just basic interview questions. Just prepare well. I'm due for my face to face interview in two days. Wish me luck!
Interview Question – None Answer Question
Senior Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in February 2014.
Interview Details – 1:1 Interview with Senior Manager, Competency Based and general CV Walkthrough, then Final stage assessment centre which consisted of an Essay (1 Hour), Senior/Partner Interview (1 Hour), Case Study Presentation (1.15 Hours), Group Exercise (1 Hour). Nothing too difficult, if you know your stuff and do the relevant prep it's not that bad. Key is to having a structure to apply to the essay and case study and sticking to it as you will be pressed for time.
Reason for Declining – Salary offering was non-negotiable and not competitive with the market rate.
Assistant Manager, CF Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2011.
Interview Details – Initial screening over a coffee chat with Director. Followed by f2f. Asked a lot of competency questions about various situations and experience from the past. 90% competency questions and 5% technical questions. All were dealt very well luckily and were liked by the Dir and the SM.
Partner round was not too difficult even though the partner asked loads of relevant question on commercial knowledge on relevant area and recent trends.
Interview Question – Nothing as such! Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much room. They increased £0.5K after lot of negotiation. Was happy eventually anyway
Deloitte Scholars Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Deloitte
Interview Details – Online testing, e tray then first round competency interview then partner interview
Interview Question – Time you had to stand up to a friend Answer Question
Reason for Declining – London filled up so got an offer for Bristol which I didn't want.
Summer Internship - Monitor Deloitte Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – Online application then followed by a series of tests. E-tray was very easy (just practice) and the written exercise was straight forward.
Face-to-face interview with a case study was next with a group presentation. The group presentation was nice and the group worked well together. When it came to the interview, the interviewer seemed very unprofessional. At one point, he crouched over and put his chin on the table. The case study took 20 mins and 25 min competency. Questions were standard: tell me about teamwork, planning events, how did your work experience/academic help you with your decision to become a consultant, achievement of goal. It was very short and rushed, he constantly checked his phone whilst i'm talking.
When I asked him about the regulations and the effect it has on Deloitte, he didn't know how to answer. He couldn't answer the buddy/mentor responsibility either and didn't seem enthusiastic when I asked what project he is currently working on (health care sector). All in all, he could have done more to make the experience more enjoyable, clearly an amateur at this and lacked the professionalism Deloitte is known for. I changed my mind about Deloitte after this.
Interview Question – All pretty standard. I over prepared Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Deloitte wasn't what I expected
