    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    I received an interview after applying online post career fair and through an employee referral. The behavioral interview was straight forward, but the case interview was more challenging than I expected. Be prepared by practicing case interviews from their online resources and practice WITH SOMEONE. It will help tremendously and you won't be caught off guard by the oral presentation of the case.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    On-campus recruiting. No dinner beforehand. conversational tone causing you to lower your guard but you're expected to give formal, story-focused answers. The interviewer told me he/she was tired after a long day. I think it impacted the effort put in, resulting in a very short interview.

    Being prepared to share something that isn't on your resume is a great tip.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    1st round: 30 minute phone interview with a senior manager

    2nd round: 2 hour interview process (see below)

    30 minute introduction (presentation, questions, etc.)
    30 minute case study with a manager
    30 minute behavioral interview with a partner
    30 minute case study with a manager

    Deloitte is more interested in your thought-process than getting the right answer in the case studies. Do not worry if you think you messed up. And don't get too ahead of yourself if you think you did great. Realistically, it's tough to know if you nailed the interview or didn't do well because there are a ton of factors that go into the process.

    I really enjoyed my interview experience. From the partners to the managers to the recruiters, everyone was responsive, engaging, and insightful. I'm looking forward to working for the Firm.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Phone interviews were quick. The in-person interview was a bad experience. One of my three interviewers called out that day, and they didn't bother having someone else fill in. So I essentially missed out on a third of the overall interview. The person reading the case studies read them as fast as possible, almost as if to make sure I wouldn't be able to take notes. Not surprisingly, I wasn't offered a position

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (Arlington, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    An employee sent in my CV for a specific position back in late November, but I received an email stating that my experience was not a fit for that position and didn't hear anything else for months. I did eventually hear from Deloitte HR in late February, and the process went incredibly fast after that.
    I spoke with a recruiter over the phone, and after discussing my experience she immediately scheduled me to come into the Rosslyn office for a series of three interviews in one day. A week and a half later I went in for the interviews. I stayed in one small room and three employees (manager, senior manager, and principal) rotated around to talk with me.
    There were three interviews: fit, behavioral, and case. The fit and behavioral interviews were very relaxed and mainly revolved around my previous work and how I handled specific situations (how did you handle a situation when your team members did not agree on an issue?). The interviewers were incredibly nice and made me feel immediately at ease. The case interview started a little tense (I was nervous), and they asked me about implementing a new system at a government agency. I wasn't quite expecting this, as I do not have a technical background at all, so make sure you know the SDLC basics. It was a relatively short case, and I relaxed as the interviewer answered my questions.
    It really seemed like the priority was how well you present yourself and how enthusiastic you are about the position and the company. Remember to relax!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied throughout my university. First, I had a phone screening with a recruiter. This was just basic questions to get to know me. I then had a phone interview with a manager, which was longer and involved more in-depth and behavioral questions. After this phone interview, I had to complete an online assessment that took over an hour. This was a personality and behavioral assessment.

    I was invited to an onsite interview after that. I had dinner with a bunch of current consultants, who were in their first years. This was a relaxed atmosphere where I could ask questions about working at Deloitte.

    The actual interview was the next morning. I had 3 interviews for a half hour each. The first two were with senior managers. I was asked behavioral questions and given a mock situation to respond to in each interview. The final one was with a Director and was more of a casual conversation.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational question: Say you are working late on an excel sheet at the client's office and everyone else on your team has gone home. The CEO of the client company comes in and expresses his doubt in your team's ability to complete the project on time. He asks you what you think about the timeline for completion. How do you respond?   Answer Question
    • Situational question: Say you have a meeting set up with a person at the company you are working with. During the meeting, they ask you, "I saw that Regulation F900 was just changed. How is this going to affect our daily operations?" How do you respond? In this situation, you have no knowledge about this regulation.   Answer Question

    Interview

    For the first round interviews there were two back to back thirty minute interviews, one behavioral interview and one case interview. Applicants were notified that evening about second round interviews, which involved a one hour case interview. The cases were more qualitative than quantitative. All of the interviewers were friendly and pleasant.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Interview had 2 rounds, with Round 1 consisting of a 30 minute interview with a Consulting Manager, and a 30 minute case study with a Partner. The case study was about healthcare, and talking about integrating manual records into a new database system. The behavioral interview dictates whether or not you move on to the next round, because mine didn't go as well as other people's but my case study went really well. Not invited to next round of interviews.
