    AERS Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process took about 4 weeks. I applied through an employee referral. Was contacted a few weeks later via email and was scheduled for two 30 minute telephonic interviews with their professionals. The interviews were mostly focused on getting to know your background (walk-through-your resume), your interests and a few behavioral questions to assess your thought process and personality. Two days later, i.e on a Thursday received a call and and was invited for their on-site interviews at 30 Rock, the following Monday. All expenses towards the travel and accommodation were taken care of by Deloitte. Interviewed with a Senior Manager and a Partner, for about 30 minutes each. The interview format was similar to the telephonic interviews, in addition to a few technical questions related to the position. I would say, much focus was on how you present yourself, how well you know about the firm and the field you are applying to. Be prepared to have a solid answer for "Why only Deloitte?" and be enthusiastic about the position and Deloitte as a whole. Know what you are talking..do not just blabber. Take a minute, pause, think and then talk. Was contacted a few weeks later(verbally) to extend the offer. And i was EXCITED!! As a consultant, you get to meet various clients, work on different projects (sometimes within a span of few weeks) and with diverse teams. So, its very important to be personable. That's what i feel Deloitte looks for in a candidate, are you a good fit? Yes? You are Hired!

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First, there was a telephonic screening interview followed by a tech screen. The final round interviews were held onsite. There were three rounds - technical,core consulting skills assessment and a case study. The interviewers were friendly and made the interviews quite conversational. The case study round was interesting and it does require proper preparations. The first round for me was the core consulting skills assessment and the interviewer mostly asks you behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied in the AERS area in the Risk Analytics field. The interview went smoothly. One thing that is very different from the regular consultant area is that they do not give a case interview. 1-Behavioral, 1- Technical and 1- Fit interview with leadership. The recruiting team was difficult to work with, and the offer that was extended was way less than competitors.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever been in a cut throat environment and how will you handle a cut throat environment?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Awful. Very unwilling to budge. Almost insulting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Deloitte contacted me; I did not apply to any positions online. I was recruited for the strategy & operations consultant track within the federal practice. We had a phone conversation about the culture and expectations before an in-person 90min session. Typical interview questions as well as an incredibly fun case interview scenario.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. Got a phone call from a recruiter, who scheduled two telephonic interviews ( One taken by a Senior Manager, other by the Manager). Two days later, got an email from the same recruiter, asking me to come to 30 Rock for two in person interviews. Both the interviews were behavioral, more like a conversation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte in June 2015.

    Interview

    Process took a day. I met with 2 senior managers. they were nice, but questions were quite hard. They asked about me GPA and about my CPA. They also asked about why I choose Deloitte, why should we hire you? No technical questions asked. Why big 4? I think I met at least six people through my interviewing process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    The interview process went very smoothly. I spoke with three professionals, one at a time. The first 30 minute interview was questions about my resume. Be prepared for any questions relevant to your resume and yourself. The interviewer created questions as we spoke in order to get to know me. The second interview was also 30 minutes and consisted of the case study. I was given a case to read and then asked questions pertaining to it. Some questions were very challenging and took me a moment to gather my thoughts. Take your time to form thoughtful answers. After I gave my final recommendations and we discussed some of the main points, the interviewer also asked questions about me (interests/past work/degree/projects). The final interview was getting to know me, why I want to work for Deloitte, and what area I'm interested in. The interviewer asked questions seeing how I would handle certain situations or tackle challenging problems. Be prepared for anything here. I received a lot of interesting, challenging questions. It was a great discussion back and forth. Keep them engaged and show them you're willing to challenge yourself. Overall, the interview was 1 hour and 30 minutes. The were very accommodating to travel and expenses.
