Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in May 2010.

Interview Details

The hiring and interview process I experienced followed the traditional framework. A recruiter contacted me, went through salary negotiations, brought in and interviewed with two managers, heard back from the HR rep via email of an offer. Accepted it.

Interview Questions
  • Don't remember the exact question but one of the hiring managers asked me to present on the Systems Development Lifecycle and provide details on each phase of the model. This was difficult because I only knew this in theory via my classes, and had no real work experience with it. After the presentation he asked follow-up questions which I had to answer.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
My recruiter was the one who handled this, he asked what my salary expectations were and after discussing with the partners brought back a number. I'd advise all applicants to be confident and ask for what you want because once it's set, the increases annually are marginal.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Deloitte in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very fast setting up interview. 1st round phone interview with manager, and was invited for on-site within three days. I interviewed with four people, two managers, one director and one partner. The first three people are really nice and make u feel very comfortable. But I have to say the interview with partner was like a nightmare. He kept throw tech questions to me and i really felt i did most of them wrong. Then he become very rude even cut my last answer and said he has to made a phone call and sounds like he wants me to leave.

    I was so depressed cuz i did pretty well in the first three interviews. I have to admit deloitte people are smart and hard-working. But seriously, you dont need to treat a potential employee like that.

    Anyway, dont have too much hope for the offer, but still wish some magic happens.---------> magic happens, I got the job

    What the interview process looks like? How many steps?
    • I am fairly certain that it is similar across the board, not sure if you Canadians do things differently though ;). Phone screen is completed, behavioral based questions, tell me about yourself, etc.
    • If campus interviews are completed, I’m sure it will be 2 interviewers (they may tag team) asking behavioral and technical questions as well as a case study
    • The in-office interview process consists of a behavioral interview and an intense case study interview. I’m sure you will nail the case from your extensive case comp. experience; however, I HIGHLY recommend you buy/rent this book and read it and do the case practice-- “Case in Point” by Cosentino
    • After the in-office interview they may have other steps (additional interviewers—be prepared for 3-4 case interviews, etc) or may extend an offer on the spot or via telephone

    Who interviewed you?
    • My phone screen was by a recruiter
    • My on campus was a 2 part interview, one was a manager and the other the Senior Manager of my practice
    • My on-site (in-office) was two Senior Managers and a Partner
    • I was extended an offer two weeks later via telephone

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    After being screened by HR via telephone interview, I was interviewed separately by 3 hiring managers at their office, each focused on learning a bit more about me and how I might help out on both a specific project (for which I was being considered) and how I might fit into Deloitte in the long term.

    Each interview was different -- one clearly hostile, one very positive about me and one neutral. There really were no business cases presented, more behavioral type questions from all three. And given that they were 30-ish minute sequential interviews, they asked much the same questions.

    I was not offered the position (I suspect it was either because of the one manager -- see below -- or because of the client, whom I knew, which would have been too advantageous to Deloitte).

    Interview Questions
    • One hiring manager kept asking the question, "What is in it for ME to hire you?" He was hostile and became increasingly so as I attempted to answer his question.

      I responded initially in terms of what I brought to the project, then what I could bring to Deloitte. When asked again, I inquired as to how he earned the proverbial "gold star" and then offered how I could help him achieve his goals.

      He laughed and said he had a whole lot of people who already do that...and he asked again. I offered some other things...to which he laughed again and said I was dense. He then made it clear that he was soliciting some form of a bribe (money or sex) when he made it clear that he wanted to either "personally profit" or "feel good" because he hired me.

      I made it clear that I would never do that (the thought occurred to me that this was an integrity test), at which point he said the interview was over and passed me to the next hiring manager.

      Whether it was some sort of test or he was indicative of the quality of manager at Deloitte, I am on the whole glad I was passed over. Though I know I could have made a very positive contribution to the consulting project.
