    interviewed at Deloitte in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview with recruiter, typical resume review. Second phone interview with a Partner, typical resume review and discussion of the practice. Third interview was live in the offices with four interviewers at different levels in the organization. The second and third interviews allowed me to understand the organization better and the type of people in the consulting practice, which ultimately made my decision a lot easier.

    The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, contacted by deloitte hr person, i had 2 phone interviews, and 3 web conference interview which consisted of case study, personality, and technical. The technical question was asked very specific, i know technical stuff but i am not good at memorizing what they stand for and all and was asked the same specific type of questions. at the end i was told the team is looking for more technical people, when i first spoke to hr on the phone and the technical interviewer who interviewed me through phone at first i had told them what i know and was told by him i am a good fit for the company...a bit annoying because they wasted my time when they wanted more technical ppl and it was already clear since the very first time what i knew. HR took a long time to respond, over all they were all nice

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview is generally 20 minutes and pretty much involves the recruiter getting to know you. Once you go over basic details of your resume they will set up a call with one of the practitioners.

    My second interview was with a Specialist Master in the Systems Integration practice. He probed me a bit on my resume just to see if I could speak to what I wrote. He also asked general questions to understand my technical acumen. They look for a couple of things in this conversation: whether to place you in the functional or technical bucket, and if you're good within that bucket. Not a hard interview at all

    The 3rd interview consist of 3 interviews consisting of behavioral, case, and "general". My first was the case interview. They asked me how I would approach a new small-scale IT modernization project where we're just updating the legacy system. It was pretty straightforward and I just dropped some SDLC on them. Behavioral is just a typical behavioral interview...just be yourself. The "general" interview is just a chat with Principal, Partner, or Director about your work style and how you feel about certain things like work/life balance

    Negotiation Details
    I gave them a number...they pushed back a little but it was pretty much take it or leave it to me. Plus I had Booz Allen in the backpocket and they were already taking a lot of their employees.

    It's usually good to have a Big 4 or Booz in the mix

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deloitte in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    All the interviews were planned for one day, but there were several sessions to meet and interact with their people in the previous weeks. Two rounds of interviews, one behavioral and one case. Then, a third round that I did not make it to. The case was simpler than those in the book Case in Point. The GMAT seems to be very important for their decision making process.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very professional interview process. Was called for an initial phone screen following an employee referral. I was then moved on to the next round which consisted of one case interview and one behavioural interview. The case was short and pretty straightfoward, basically it's to check your math and logical ability. The behavioural interview was also pretty easy but very important in the grand scheme of things. Deloitte is really big on fit.

    Second round interviews were the same format. Case was longer and the behavioural portion more direct. Again the fit is everything. Understand the firm and sell yourself accordingly

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received an employee referral after expressing interest in the position to the individual, and received a call from the recruiter a couple of weeks later. This covered the basics: where I'm at in my career, what I would like to do in the future, and my level of interest, etc.

    My onsite interviews were scheduled around two weeks later, and consisted of 4 back-to-back interviewers of various levels of seniority. The first interviewer first administered a case interview and then asked behavioral questions. The other interviewers asked primarily resume-based or behavioral questions, and it seemed that "fit" with the firm was a very big focus.

    The fourth interviewer was the most senior and asked the most pointed questions; I was less sure of my performance in this interview but still felt good overall. All of the interviewers put me at ease and offered opportunities to ask questions; I took full advantage of this, and was able to determine that the position and firm were a good fit for me.

    Shortly after the first round I received an email inviting me to a second round interview with an individual in a different area of the practice. This was conducted over the phone and consisted of resume-based and behavioral questions.

    The following week I received a call from the recruiter to discuss a possible offer, and after roughly a week of negotiating on compensation and location I received a formal offer. Based on the interviews and outside sources I believe the firm is a good fit, and the salary offer was acceptable, especially with a good bonus included.
