    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online (I currently work in this field for a competitor) for a consultant position within the Human Capital Practice: Organization, Transformation & Talent Group. Within a week a I heard from a recruiter, who setup a phone interview.

    Phone Interview: Basic questions about my background, current employer, and reasons for applying to Deloitte. Lasted 30 mins, was pretty straight forward. Just be confident in your answers.

    A day later I was contacted for another phone interview, this time with a Sr. Manager from the office I indicated I wanted to work from. I really appreciated that Deloitte made the effort to get someone from this office, as it is not in one of their major cities

    Technical Phone Interview: Asked me about my experiences within change management consulting. He would ask me to explain things in more detail, and drill down into my examples. Advice is to again be confident, have lots of examples of the work you have done on hand, and be able to frame your examples (size of team/project, budget, what you did, results, etc).

    A few days later I was invited to in-person interviews. Deloitte flew me out on a Thursday night, and back Friday afternoon. The format was 1 case and 2 behavioral. To prep, I walked through Deloitte's case prep online, made sure I had solid experiences to share for about 5 different types of questions, and had a good "story" to tell about why Deloitte and why I wanted to switch.

    Case: Very straightforward. I was given the paper with the case on it. Focus was on an ERP implementation. I took my time to organize an initial response and explained how I setup/grouped the info (Strategy, opportunities, challenges). The interviewer walked me through the case, asking questions and followup questions. Key advice is to link everything back to the strategy, bring in ideas not in the case, and be able to come up with how "your" services will add value (+profit or -cost) to the company.

    Behavioral: 2 separate interviews. Very similar. Be able to have solid examples that show a variety of experiences. Be personable, that is what consulting is about. Be able to show results and value from your past experiences.

    Afterwards I followed up with emails. Heard back the following Tuesday via a phone call. Took about 2 weeks to work out the offer before I accepted. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and professional. Very impressed overall.

    Negotiation Details
    I countered the salary (which was already at the top of the Glassdoor range) and they met me in the middle. Always negotiate. One email that took 10 mins to craft pocketed me a decent sum. Also, don't sound too eager when you are offered, and take your time before writing the counter offer.

    Business Analyst - Strategy and Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Deloitte participated in on campus interviews at my school, and I was offered a first round 60 minute interview consisting of one 30 minute behavior and case interview. The behavior interview was completely traditional, and the first round case interview was an extremely easy break even analysis. I moved on to the second round(same structure, 1 case and 1 behavioral), and that case was significantly harder. There was a lot of math to do in 25 minutes. Behavioral still went well.

    Throughout the whole process, everyone I met and interacted with was great. Even when I was clearly bombing the second case, my interviewer was incredibly kind and tried to push me to do better. The only negative about Deloitte consulting is that you get essentially zero say in your first project, but I would still highly enjoy working with this firm.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college portal. Was invited for initial interview on-campus and a pre-interview dinner. Very laid back atmosphere. Very relaxed environment and everyone was very nice and open to share their experiences. I felt like the pre-interview dinner was more important than the actual interview. The official interview was 2 behavioral and resume based 30 minute interviews. Every person that came out of the interview was very confident they got second round but only 1 got invited back.

    Business Technology Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    I went through my university's campus recruiting process. Once I was told I was accepted to interview, they held an evening event the day before the interview to explain the case study process. It was incredibly helpful and I got a chance to network even before the whole process began. I highly recommend going if possible. The first interview was a 30 min behavioral followed by a 30 min case study. My interviewer and I got very off topic in the behavioral so we didn't get to many of the questions.
    The case was much more difficult than what we had practiced, which may be because I have a very math/finance heavy background with little operations knowledge. It was based around how to best integrate an ERP system to a company looking to become more efficient across its 30 offices. My interviewer was very serious and gave me zero signs of how I was doing -don't let that throw you, some interviewers like to do the "bad cop" style-.
    I got called back to a second interview the next day which was another 30 min case study. This time is was more focused on systems development life cycle.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question in the behavioral interview was to talk about a challenge I'd had in working with a team, and how I dealt with a difficult personality to reach an agreement.   Answer Question
