    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Deloitte (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process was fair, expedient, and more laid-back than expected. The two case studies were done with high-level consultants, and the in-person behavioral was done by a partner. It is best to stay relaxed and make it conversational; I did not have a heavy business background so I used personality and a general knowledge to impress.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (Orlando, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First I contacted by uncle who already works within Deloitte, then I was directed to my specific campus recruiter. I had an initial phone screening that lasted approximately 20 minutes. Next was a behavioral phone interview, and they told they me they would get back to me within a week. A week later I found out I made it to the last round: 1 behavioral and 1 technical interview at the Deloitte U.S. Delivery Center in Orlando, Florida. Flew down Thursday and attended the banquet that night where we met employees who already worked at the office. The next morning were my interviews at the office, a very short drive from the hotel. First was a typical behavioral interview followed by a rather light technical interview.

    Entry Level Tax Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through my law school's On Campus Interview process in July of last year. Did an On Campus Interview with two of their employees in August of last year. That interview focused on going over my resume. It was a generic OCI type interview. A few, but not many questions about my interest in Tax Law.

    Throughout the year I would occasionally get e-mails from them asking me if I was still interested. I was and kept them appraised of any resume changes over the year.

    They finally got around to scheduling call-back interviews in March. They left a phone message asking me to call them back to tell them what practice area I was interested in interviewing for. It took a few days of calling them back before I was able to speak to a live person. Ultimately, they scheduled me with an interview in my top choice of practice group.

    Around this time they also started e-mailing a second e-mail address of mine asking me to fill out a website form with generic resume information, and also information on my race and sex. Curiously, during the interviews a couple of the interviewers admitted to not having read my resume ahead of time, so I'm not sure what the purpose of asking for the information through the website was.

    The call-back interview finally occurred in April. It was originally scheduled to be about five hours. The day before the interview they announced that it would only be half of that length, and would start later in the day.

    The interview consisted of three half hour one on one meetings with the office's partners or their assistants. Other applicants were being interviewed at the same time, so we rotated. These interviews were a mix of discussing resume items, and discussing interest in Tax. Pretty much the same as an OCI interview.

    Afterwards they had the office's low level workers take us out for coffee at Starbucks.

    They went radio silent after that point. Finally, they sent a generic rejection letter in May.

    It was weird how the process went on for 10 months. The position would have been one where we would have started in August, so it would have been much more efficient for them to do the interviews in July or August of this year.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Two 30 minute interviews; one technical, one "soft" (personality/fit). It really depends on who you get; I give tougher tech interviews than what I got. I've seen candidates crash and burn on what should be basic Java questions. Pro tip: don't google for answers during a skype interview (yes, I've seen it happen).

    Federal Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    30 min. phone interview for the first round. This was behavioral, so they mostly just asked me questions about my past experiences, why I was interested in consulting, etc. Specific questions from my resume. Then in the final round, they flew me to D.C. for more behavioral and case interviews. I had 2 case interviews back-to-back, and one behavioral. Interviewers were very nice and I didn't trip up during any of the interviews, but I don't think I was charismatic enough.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    half an hour behavioral questions and half an hour case interview. The interviewers are nice and professional. The case interview really need more preparation.Go to their website and really get to know the example and what is SDLC. The behavioral is quite standard and just like normal conversation,going though the experience. Just make sure there is interaction during the process.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting. The process was very straight forward, Deloitte is very transparent as the evaluate candidates. After applying through my school's career service I was contacted for a first round of interviews - this included two separate pieces. The first piece was a behavioral interview followed by a case. Deloitte evaluates you on every part of your interview, this includes the greeters.
    After I finished the case I was told I would know by 5 PM that day if they wanted me to come back. They called a few hours after I left and asked me to come in the following day.
    The second day was very close to the first in initial structure; greeter, behavior and case. The difference was the amount of time with each person/people, in the second day the case is much more in depth. There is a tool on the Deloitte website that will help you prepare for these cases and I highly recommend using it. Deloitte's cases are not as hard as what most business schools will put you through but they are also given in a unique structure which adds to the difficulty. Be prepared when you go in and make sure you are confidant in your answers, in the qualitative section they are looking not just how you solve the case but also how you process the case. With the quantitative section they want to see how you gather the data just as much as they want to see you answer the question - that said, don't get the wrong answer: prepare for these interviews there are no hidden aspects and because of that Deloitte expects that you've done your homework and can do some basic math with people looking at you.
    After the interviews I was told I would hear back in two weeks. I had gathered all the contact information from the interviewing/greeting members of Deloitte and wrote each short thank you note.
    I revived my final offer exactly two weeks later.
    The overall interview is set up to have a behavior (little or no stress) and a case (mild to moderate stress) to truly gauge if you are the right fit for Deloitte, be yourself and prepare.
