- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Deloitte (Eugene, OR) in April 2014.
I did a first round on campus interview with Deloitte for the Summer Leadership Program. Although I can say that it wasn't personally my best interview (due to being nervous), I thought their style of interviewing wasn't the best. It felt more like an interrogation than an interview. The partner would often challenge my answers and show disapproval on his facial expression when he didn't like what I said.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Deloitte (Portland, OR) in October 2010.
I applied through my campus career services website. I interviewed with two recruiters, one after the other in a one-on-one setting. They were very reserved compared to recruiters from other accounting firms. I got the offer to travel to Portland for a second interview about two weeks later.
In Portland I interviewed with four people, one at a time. I interviewed with staff, directors, and partners. I also went to lunch with two younger staff members.
Overall, it seemed like a fairly reserved office.

- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Deloitte (Portland, OR) in June 2012.
I initially was contacted by the recruiter, we communicated by email to coordinate my interview.
It took one day to get the interview scheduled but it was for two weeks out. Partially that was due to my own limited schedule.
The interview consisted of two "two on one" interviews (two interviewers, and me) each lasted about 45 minutes. The interviewers were all either managers or senior managers. They were typical interviews, all were friendly, a couple more reserved a couple more outgoing. Nothing exceptionally challenging or unusual about either interview.
After the interviews I went to lunch with a staff & senior person. Lunch lasted about 1.5 hours (including walking) and was pleasant. More of a "sales" pitch, talking about what they like about the firm, what the environment is. Nice people and I enjoyed it.
After lunch I walked back to the office and was given a tour. They have "fly-in" cubes for auditors and the office seemed really quiet. They validated my parking (which is good, it was $15 to park in the building!!)

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Deloitte (Portland, OR) in October 2012.
On campus interview, followed by a three person in office interview and coffee hour, and lots of socials. Liked all the people and the interview questions were pretty general..."Tell me about a time you..." type questions, plus just some "getting to know you" type stuff. I don't think there were any technical questions, but I was a campus hire.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Deloitte (Portland, OR) in October 2013.
on-site office visit: I came in the office around 9am and had a nice breakfast with a staff accountant and a senior audit manager. It was very relaxing beginning. We talked about our own personal lives. They gave a sale pitch on how Deloitte is the best among all CPA firms.
