Difficult Interview

Audit Staff Interview

Audit Staff
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2012.

Interview Details – Initial communication was by email to schedule an interview in person in Los Angeles, about two weeks in advance. Interview itself began with all candidates on that particular day being gathered in a conference room for a presentation and Q&A with managers. Each candidate was subsequently interviewed by three individual superiors (partners, managers, etc) each lasting about 30 minutes a piece. Questions were typical and generic - What draws you to the profession, Leadership experience, favorite college course, etc. All in all a present and professional experience.

Was called a few weeks later to be given the unfortunate news, but not many organizations would give phone calls like that. Most send out an unprofessional generic email. I appreciated the phone call at least.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you have faced adversity in a team environment.   Answer Question

Audit Staff
Phoenix, AZ

I applied through college or university and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2011.

Interview Details – Initial contact through college recruiters at Meet The Firm events. They maintained contact as I expressed interest. The interviews were initially on campus and then later in house. The questions were mostly behavioral based, but then the last few (in house) were more a meet and greet with various senior members of the firm. My offer was communicated shortly afterwards (within 24 hours).

Interview Question – How do you manage change and working with difficult people?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate as there was very little room (especially with salary). I could have negotiated location, but not salary or start date.

Audit Staff Interview

Audit Staff
Campus, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte.

Interview Details – Spoke with the campus recruiter a few weeks prior to attending a campus recruiting event. Went to event and spoke with the campus recruiter as well as a second year staff that asked me questions as she checked things off of a clipboard. The next day I was invited to an on campus interview for the following week. Deloitte had brought in two staff members to talk with the ones waiting to be interviewed as the prior interviews were being completed. Interview was fairly simple, lasted half an hour. Asked basic questions about describing myself, what I like to do, and why I liked public accounting. Gave me a "save the date" card for an office interview for two weeks from then. In the end two weeks had passed yet I still had received no notification on an update. I ended up reaching out to the recruiter and getting a response a few days later. Basically Deloitte likes their staff to come in with no experience so they can mold them the way they want, and I already had experience and they didn't like that. Ended up going with another of the big four.

Interview Question – All relativity standard. Asked a lot of team related questions.   Answer Question

Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2013.

Interview Details – On campus interview with 2 interviewer: one manager and one partner. The interview process was like a conversation, and I was asked about my past internships, teamwork experiences, and challenges I have met before. When talking with partner it was really like a conversation, but the manager interviews were more follow up the routine interview process.

Interview Question – The first round interview is not very difficult, just using example to demonstrate your experience and be yourself.   Answer Question
