The process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in April 2011.
Interview Details – The interview was mainly personality based. The firm was looking for professionals who have similar outlooks on life and work and wanted the hired staff to fit in well with the established personnel. Most questions were "Describe a time that you..." as opposed to other interviews that typically test one's skills. Overall, it was a harmless event.
Interview Question – What was an instance in which you had to supervise a peer in a team atmosphere? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my location but definitely not my salary and/or benefits.

Interview Details –
There was a recruiting dinner the night before to meet the potential co-workers and partners of the firm. The employees were very nice. The partners were about more rigid and seemed stuck on more candidates than others.
The interview itself was a double interview. 30 minutes with one manager and 30 minutes with a partner. It was very casual and pretty standard. The interviewers were reading off of a list of questions.
Interview Question – Tells us about a time that you had to complete multiple projects at the same time, how did you manage your time? Answer Question

Interview Details – An audit manager form Fort Worth office interviewed me. He introduced himself then asked me a few behavior questions. He seemed very nice, and it was hard to guess what he was thinking.

Interview Details – I interviewed with Deloitte spring 2009. They had a lot of behavioral questions, the toughest one asked me to explain a situation where I was wrongly awarded something and had to give it back (or that was the gist of the question). Lucky for me literally 2 weeks before that I had the perfect example happen to me at work.
Interview Question – Describe a situation when you were wrongly awarded or given something and explain what you did as a result. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2010.
Interview Details – 2 one on one interviews with college recruiters for the specific segments. I was with the Tax group because that is what I applied for. They are your typical accountants, both interviewers were kind of socially awkward which made the interview uncomfortable. Also, both interviewers gave false sense of hope by acting like they would be in contact with me about getting me in contact with who I would be working with and their team group. Mostly all behavior related questions, why Deloitte, why tax vs. audit, why the big-four, etc... Don't get too excited if they give you a good feeling coming out of this interview though, doesn't equal an offer.
Interview Question – In a group setting, what position are you in, are you the leader? why or why not? Answer Question

Interview Details –
Friend of a friend asked if I was interested in a consulting position at Deloitte. I was told that they are looking to hire 50-100 new management consultants in the next 12 months as they are anticipating an up-swing in the economy. 4 - 5 months later I was contacted by an HR recruiter and had an initial phone interview and a couple weeks later I had a follow-up interview with a senior consulting manager. The focus of the interview was mostly on my background, skills, and career goals. They were both very nice people, although they work long hours and scheduling these interviews was quite difficult.
The HR recruiter passed me off to an administrative assistant to schedule another interview with a partner in the consulting practice. We went back and forth for 2-3 weeks trying to find a time which the partner could meet with me. One day the administrative assistant emails me and asks me instead to book a flight to their regional office in Dallas.
Fast forward to Texas... They took good care of me with great accommodations and instructions about how the interview would go. The on-site interview consisted of a discussion with s couple front-line consultants to get a flavor of the culture, a partner to probe my potential value to the team and company, and a couple of Sr. Managers one of which presented the case.
The case was a different format than what was described in interview information packet. Rather than a question/answer type investigation the case was non-interactive and focused on business soft skills meaning no number crunching was required. There were no ‘gotchas’ in the case but you did need to know how common business metrics fit together: market share, sales growth, COGS, OpEx, Net Income, market size, etc.
I got a call from the HR recruiter the next week saying that that although I did very well on the case they did not feel that there was a good culture fit. I was not surprised. Although I did probe to see what she meant by ‘not a good culture fit,’ she would not provide any specifics.
Overall, I had a great experience. Deloitte Consulting would be a great firm to work for.
The process took 3 months - interviewed at Deloitte in June 2010.
Interview Details – They first contacted via email. After I responded, it took them good two weeks to contact me for a preliminary phone interview. That went well. Then they had a technical interview again over the phone. The arrangements were made by another HR person. And was arranged very hurriedly. The HR guy told me that I would be going to Austin for F2F, within two weeks. Then four weeks go by not contact, even after I sent an email. Then after about six weeks, I get a call, with another tentative date. Although they sent me instructions for the Austin trip they never mad any travel arrangements. 3 Days before the date I sent an email and was told that it has again been rescheduled for the next week, this time in Dallas. Finally it took place with four people F2F. They did not even bother to take me to lunch. I wish they had the courtesy to keep me posted with the changes in their schedules and process, which was annoying.
Reason for Declining – Did not like the offer and the interview process was so haphazard that I figured, I don't need to compromise on my compensation.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte in April 2010.
Interview Details –
The interview was held on campus (for the first round). I had 2 people interviewing me, and both lasted 30 minutes long. The first part was asking me behavioral questions including why I wanted to work for Deloitte, and why I would be a good fit for the company and as a consultant. The second interview was a case interview, and it was asking me about opening a new boutique shop. Kind of odd, because they didn't ask me any numbers (where I had to calculate the profit or revenue) and just wanted me to give some ideas on how to approach the solution.
Didn't make it to the second round, but overall it was a good experience.
