Audit Senior Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Detroit, MI) in October 2014.

Interview

Communications were slow and labored. Recruiters were nice, and the start of the recruiting process was very familiar with other big 4 processes. However, final round interviews were with employees that were full of themselves. The people are very different from other big 4 firms, and seem to be arrogant.

Reasons for Declining

Accepted offer from another big 4 firm, that seemed life a better fit.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (Boston, MA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    For this position, it is important to understand that you are a commodity. The interviewers will not be asking technical questions about the most recent accounting standard or what kind of accounting treatment a lease should get. They are interested in finding someone with a positive attitude, a CPA (or a plan to achieve it), and someone that they will enjoy working with (as you will be working with them some very late nights).

    Interview Questions

    • There really were no curveballs thrown at me. Like any other interview, it is important to be prepared for the question, "why are you interested in us?" and "why are you leaving your current job?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I interviewed with three of the four big accounting firms. When I decided to go with Deloitte, I asked them to match the highest offer I received, and they did. For this position, there is not much wiggle room, but if you are a hot commodity, they are willing to up your base salary a couple of thousand.

    Audit Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Deloitte (Orlando, FL) in April 2011.

    Interview

    You have to constantly call the recruiting manager and show you are interested all the time. Unless you take the initiative, they will dismiss your resume. You have to do your homework about the company and the position you are applying for; many times the recruiting manager has no idea of the details of the position, and to your advantage, that shows interest.

    Reasons for Declining

    Since the recruiter knew less than me about the position, it turned out it wasn't for my city. I had to decline because I can't move and it was too far away to commute.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Deloitte in August 2011.

    Interview

    Firstly got a phone call from HR, kinda like a phone screening; then went to the site for two 1:1 interviews - one partner & one director. The next day got a phone call to ask for another phone interview with another partner who's not on this site. Two days later, HR called and said "congratulation!". All questions are behavior-related. Plus - must be very familar with the resume.

    Came into the office and had a one on one interview with 2 different partners, as well as a senior manager. I was later taken out to dinner with 2 staff members that i would be working with in order to get a feel for the company. The questions with partners were not difficult, they just wanted to get to know me as a person.
