    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I got the interview through my campus' college recruiting. The interview itself was just behavioral questions. The interviewer seemed really friendly. The interview itself was really not many actual questions, but more of a conversation. The interview only lasted about 20 minutes and then we ran out of time. Basically if you can speak about your resume, carry a conversation like a person, and demonstrate that you really researched the company you should get a leg up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (Berkeley, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Deloitte hires in rounds and you will have to go through multiple rounds of interviews (informal, behavioral... basically just getting to know you and expanding on your resume). I would recommend being outgoing and getting your name out there by going to information sessions etc. Don't be scared to stand out and don't be quiet!!

    Interview Questions

    • What was the most difficult situation you've ever been put in and how did you get out of it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You have about 2-4 weeks to tell them whether or not you will take the internship.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    First round is with a Senior Manger over the phone followed by an in person interview with 3 Partners. The level of person you are talking with will depend on what level you interview for. Partner interviews are case studies so there is no wrong answer. Make sure to break down the problem and talk out allowed

    Interview Questions

    • It is a case study and they change every year. You can google sample case studies and I think the Deloitte website provides that as well.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They do not negotiate $$. You can negotiate location.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (Berkeley, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    First round on campus, two 1:1 back to back 30 min interviews
    All basic behavioral questions. Pushed a little but nothing crazy.
    Second round invited to office in LA, three back to back 1:1 interviews with senior manager, partner, and director. Second round was most chill interview process ever, barely asked any behavioral questions, just getting to know you and see if they'd like being around you.

    ERS Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for the ERS Consultant summer internship through my career center on campus. The night before the interview was a Pre-social event where we got to talk with current employees who attended my school. The event was a very relax atmosphere, but remember the recruiters are judging you and going to ask for feedback on how well you asked questions and mingled.
    The next day at the interview it broken up into two parts each 30 minutes long. The first interview was more just talking about random things and learning about the position and how the internship works out. The second interview was more traditional with behavioral questions. They both wanna see what you will say and if you can keep a conversation going since the internship you interact a lot with the clients.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I was approached by a Deloitte recruiter on LinkedIn and had a great experience with the interview process. The process started with a phone call with a recruiter to answer general questions about the position and the company. After that, I had a phone interview with a Manager who tested my excel skills and asked some analytical questions. Finally, I was flown out for my final round of interviews with a Manager and two Senior Managers in the region. Each interview had a different "theme" - behaivoral questions, some analytical questions, and a case study. I received my offer several days after my final interview.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate relocation and a higher salary.

    Business Technology Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Two Rounds of Interviews. Round 1 asks the typical questions, "What are your strengths/weaknesses." The interviewers on site are entry level (just to greet and informally chat with) Deloitte employees to Sr. Consultants & Directors (who do the interviews). Deloitte basically grabs current employees to do a few interviews per year, so they glance over your resume and then look a bank of standard interview questions. They are looking for well thought out answers like any other firm, but are very good about taking the interview into a conversation. Round 1 they really just want to make sure they would enjoy working with you if you were assigned to their team.

    Round 2 was another interview with a Director and then a case study with a Sr. Consultant. The case study actually mirrored the SDLC example shown on their website as someone mentioned earlier.
