Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in September 2013.

Interview Details

An external recruiter performed the initial contact and pre-screening with me via telephone. She also provided interviewing tips verbally and in writing. Once I passed the pre-screening call, I spoke with a Deloitte recruiting professional. After the second call, I the external recruiter informed me that Deloitte wanted to schedule a set of in-person interviews with four consultants and managers.

Interview Questions
  • The most difficult question was posed to me outside of an interview. A consultant asked me if I would be willing to work 7 days a week (4 days away from home in another city, 1 day in a Deloitte office and 2 days on the weekend).   View Answer

    Deloitte likes candidates that make an effort. Get to know practitioners, not just the recruiter. Case study prep is similar to other consultancies. Once you crack case, a lot of emphasis is placed on fit and communication style.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    Went through an employee referral, was called the next day by the HR professional and went through basic information with me. I was scheduled the next week for a technical screen interview. the questions were very basic for the role. i believe they ask you basic questions for the role you apply for, they dont go through a text book and look for impossible questions. I was informed the next day that i had passed the phone screen and was invited for an in-person interview at the main office. I had 3 interviews, 2 partners and 1 manager, the first was a case study that talked about helping a Credit card company boost sales and strategy. the next two interviews were with partners and focused on your fit with the company and your past projects. never be afraid to say when you do not know an answer rather than trying to BS.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was drawn out over two months. I was first vetted for one project and then vetted for the bench. First interview was with the recruiter over the phone. A week later the following interview was with a current manager at a potential project location. A month passed before I was called for a face to face in Rosslyn. The face to face was pretty easy. Three interviews that were 30 minutes each. One personality interview, one technical, and one case interview. All were pretty easy as long as you know your stuff.

    Negotiation Details
    Didn't have to negotiate. They will only pay 10% over your current salary.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed as a lateral hire for the senior consultant position in Deloitte's Human Capital consulting practice. My first interview was a basic screening HR phone interview. The 2nd interview was a phone interview with a partner which was a fit / behavioral interview. The next round was in the Chicago office and had 3 interviews - one case, and 2 fit interviews. I had one final interview with another Partner which was again a fit interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The case was fairly easy, and so were all the interviews.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The HR person was quite unreceptive to negotiations - they do not provide relocation because apparently as a lateral hire, you want to join us versus us wanting to hire you, which I thought was ridiculous!
