Business Analyst Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Deloitte in September 2013.

Interview Details

I got the interview because a senior partner recommended me for it. Any partner in good standing can arrange for you to get past the resume screeners for an interview.

First, there was a screening interview over the phone. This went very well, with normal interview questions about my background and the expectation that I would ask 2-3 questions about Deloitte. The point was to see if you can hold a conversation and act professionally.

Then, there were two first round interviews, a behavioral and a case interview. I also did well on the behavioral interview. I prepared by getting the top interview question list from my CSO and making notecards with the interview question on the front and my desired response on the back. I came up with about 20-25 notecards. This strategy worked well. There was only one question that I didn't see coming and I was able to give a few really solid answers to the ones I had prepped. On the last question, the interviewer even said: "Wow. That was a fantastic answer." :)

Where I ran into trouble was the case interview. My preparation was not well-suited to the interview. This was an interviewer-led case interview. After the initial prompt, there were 6 specific questions that the interviewer posed to me. Some were: "Given X, what factors would you consider in making your recommendations." But the ones that really killed me were the math questions. There were two of them. YOU HAVE TO PRACTICE MATH BEFORE THE CASE INTERVIEW. What is 20,000 times 60? What is 300 times 50? What is 50 million times 20? You have to be able to do these calculations quickly and confidently. Moreoever, you have to be able to do them consistently because one mistake can screw you over. Otherwise, before you know it you're stumbling and bumbling and you have lost the interview.

Bottom Line: The case interview is EXACTLY like Deloitte says it is on their website, just with harder math.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Deloitte pulls out all the stops to recruit people, especially on campus.

    They interview many candidates, a higher proportion than their competitor firms.

    1 case and 1 behavioral interview (either order), both 30 minutes.

    The cases can be different from what you're used to, even if you are in strategy and operations.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The first round interviews consisted of one case interview (30 minutes) and one behavioral interview (30 minutes). The case interviews are very structured, which is unlike the Big 3: The interviewer asks you a question, you take some time to think about it, you present your answer then the interviewer will change the direction of the interview. Feedback is given immediately so you have a good gauge of how you are doing. The final interview is a one hour case interview but this time you have two interviewers. However I finished the case in about 30+ minutes and the rest of the time was spent just talking about my experiences. So in effect it was similar to the first round interviews, just that now there are two interviewers.
    Overall the atmosphere was very relaxed and it was definitely the most enjoyable case interview that I had.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview involves a 30 minute case interview as well as a 30 minute fit interview. The case interviewer was fairly tough in terms of the expected answer, but the fit interviewer was very comfortable and receptive.
