    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Went to first round interview. Check in with the receptionist, then went to the conference room to wait to be guided by a buddy to the interview room. Be nice to everyone cuz anyone you get in touched will be asked their feelings about you.

    Small talk, I was asked the name of the place where we had the preinterview social the day before. First the employer introduced himself, then I did following that. Since I don't have any tax related working experience, questions are more about items on my resume including coursework (what the course is about), academic projects, thesis, extracurricular activity (the local tax conference I attended). Some general questions are like" why choose Deloitte", "why choose tax,"" what I expect to be in career five years from now."Prepare some question you want to ask the employer about either the company or the employer as an individual. The whole process is more like a free conversation, you can ask questions any time after you finished the previous topic. Remember to get a business card and send thank you letter right after interview and as soon as possible.

    Tax Consultant I Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I enjoyed the interview process. The interviews are very much like a normal conversation. Several of my interviews consisted of me asking more questions than the interviewer asking me. That was fine with me, as I was prepared for this to happen. A few behavioral questions were asking and the typical question, "So why did you choose tax?"

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    The whole process from the start of sending in your application and first round interview is almost 2 weeks, 5-6 weeks if you move on to second rounds. Deloitte is very fast on sending out there approval to come in for an interview or if you didn't get it. Instructions on registering are clear-cut, although tedious compared to my past experiences.

    You will be invited to a social night to meet the firm, and the following day will be your interview.

    The partners were very nice, making there way around to each group at the social night to introduce themselves, and overall made a great impression. The younger staff seemed nice and welcoming as well, but that welcoming vibe sort of diminishes when you come to see them in the front lobby pre-interview. I give the younger staff the benefit of the doubt that they could have been nervous for hosting the first time, but overall, there was a significant change in their attitude, regardless if you met them before or not.

    My interview was pretty straight-forward and nothing unexpected that you can't prepare for. After the introduction and ice-breaking comments, my interviewer seem to didn't want to open up after that. It was cut-and-dry business talk about the firm and work you will be doing. Very informative but not interesting when my goal was to try to understand about the culture and learn more about her. At one point, she started playing with her hair, possibly looking for split-ends?

    Overall, seems like a great company, although my interviewer was nice, I was not impressed based on what she did as it left a bad impression for the firm.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Three interview Process

    On-Campus Interview: Interview was with a Director. I think it was a fit test because aside from pretty standard behavioral questions, the interview focused on our experiences that led us to where we were respectively and our goals moving forward. The interviewer did scrutinize my transcript so be prepared to explain blips and dips in grades.

    On-site Interview with Manager & Partner: Separate interview but they were both very nice and welcoming. Walked them through my resume and then it became conversational. One focused more on the required questions as opposed to the other but both made it easy to talk to them.

    Interview Questions
