Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2010.
Interview Details – I had two phone interviews. One with the partner, one with the project manager.

Their resources worked closely with me when I was at a previous employer and they recommended me heavily for the job.

Lots of analytical and behavioral analysis.

Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Deloitte in June 2010.
Interview Details – Multi-stage interview. Was pretty painless. Most of the emphasis was on trying to decide what part of the organization I fit. As I recall, there were four interviews in all.
Negotiation Details – I had a salary expectation that I set forth based on my prior history. They came in slightly below what I requested. However, this was at the height of the recession and the offers locally were far below what Deloitte offered. I consider what they offered fair.
Audit Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2012.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was very smooth; at most a week or two during the whole process. After submitting my resume, they got back to me within about 2-3 days with a phone interview. The following day was the office visit for an one-on-one interview with two partners and each interview lasted approximately a half hour. The offer was in my inbox within two days after my office visit.
Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation... it's the BIG 4.
Specialist Master Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Deloitte in June 2014.
Interview Details – Interview Process involved a 1 hour technical screening. It was all good. Everything was based off my resume. Next one was an on site interview with three rounds. First round was basically about understanding what kind of person i was, how would i handle different situations while maintaining a team, second round was a case interview and last round was again technical screening.
Negotiation Details – was able to negotiate sign in bonus and 12% raise than my previous salary.
NextGen Leaders National Conference Delegate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – First round of interviews included Behavioral and Case Study interviews. Both interviews were conducting by experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds. I had the chance of asking them questions about their experience with Deloitte and both held their company in high regard.
The second round interview was held on site at one of Deloitte's major city offices. The interview was a case study style interview that lasted for 30 minutes. The case was difficult and the end result was hard to get to, but the overall problem solving process was what the interview was based on. In addition to the interview, each of the interviewees was paired with a younger (<5 years of experience) Deloitte employee for the purpose of forming a connection to the company. The day also included an office tour, presentations by upper-level management and mingling with other Deloitte employees.
Overall, the interview process was a great experience. I learned a lot about Deloitte and all they have to offer.
Interview Question – The second round Case Interview was difficult, however disclosing the Case is not for me to do. Answer Question
ERS Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – I got the first interview from an employee referral. I first received a phone interview which asked some basic questions about my resume. After the interview I was told I would be brought in for an in-person interview. It took some time for the first interview to happen but it finally happened a month after. I met two people and the questions were mainly behavioral questions. A few weeks later, I found out that I would be brought in for a second interview. It took a few extra weeks to get the date and the second interview went even better. Once again it was two 30 minute interviews based on behavioral questions. The people were extremely nice and welcoming both times I had the opportunity to come in. A few weeks later I received an offer.
Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions. Just be able to talk about yourself, why you want to work for Deloitte and/or the department, what industry. Answer Question
Senior Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in July 2010.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter who say my resume on a job board. The recruiter asked me what I was looking for in a career and was generally fairly easy to talk to. No major gotchas. There was a technical phone screening during which they asked about my technical skills. That was fairly easy as well. Detected arrogance in the interviewers voice. They called me in to an "interview night" during which I had three separate interviews with people of varying levels of experience. Two of them were really nice and encouraging. I got the sense they were not really trying to screen for technical skills but more for cultural fit and consulting aptitude. All of them projected an air of professionalism and joviality tinged with a hint of arrogance. They filled my head with dreams of becoming and equity partner in the firm on day. That was a clincher for me. That is how they get you.

Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – On-campus interview with two different Deloitte professionals - each interview was roughly 30 minutes. Overall, the interviews were pretty easy and casual. Would have had an offer, but was "too young" based on how many college credit hours I had.
