    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is pretty smooth with appropriate intimation for the interviews, consisting of 3 phases. The travel for In-person interview is covered by the company. In-person session is long and difficult. It ranges from understanding of business problem to technical details on data warehouse structures and solution options. Most of the questions are associated with business case and use cases.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went through 5 interviews with 2 managers, two senior managers, and a partner. There was a lot of difficulty with scheduling and I even had an interview cancelled the same morning as the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • My case was a program evaluation question: Evaluate the impact of an NGO and how they can improve their processes to make sure they are achieving their mission across the different markets they serve.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered 10% above my current salary and they were unwilling to make any adjustments to that. I pressed but nothing came of it. It was difficult because you have to present your case to the recruiter who then takes it "to her people" so I never got to negotiate directly with the person making the decisions.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rosslyn, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Rosslyn, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Deloitte in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from a recruiter who found my resume on Monster. After a a phone conversation, I was setup for an interview for the following Thursday at their Rosslyn office. Interview was conducted by 4 different employees, with each of them talking to me for 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were particularly hard. Though one of the interviewers grilled me on my knowledge of OWASP and the Certification and Accreditation cycle, it wasn't too difficult.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The recruiter completely low-balled me, offering a lateral move and equal salary to what I was making at my current position. She even went as far as to hint that I was job hopping for a salary jump. For my experience and qualifications, the offer was a slap in the face and the insinuation that I was job hopping was also. Especially considering that they contacted me, when I was not job hunting. The bottom line is that they want to bring people in on the cheap, when they know that their potential salary growth is unlikely. Furthermore, they really tried to sell how great their benefits package was. Benefits are great, but 25 days PTO won't help me pay my mortgage. In the end, the experience was a total disappointment and really a waste of time. In basically one day, I went from what I thought would be a promising offer and move, to an experience that left a bad taste in my mouth. It appears that the reviews I read about Deloitte were true. Don't waste your time talking to them.

    On another note, the recruiter reached out to me following the interview to give me feedback on what the interviewers said. Her communication was terrible. Did not respond to calls or emails, then contacted me out of the blue a full day later. Very unprofessional.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    First round interview in Philadelphia office.

    Interview process is decently different enough from other major consulting firms (i.e. McKinsey, Bain and BCG) that I'll mostly highlight them here. When I arrived in the office they did not give me a description of the people I was meeting with that day. The first interview was one for fit. They seemed to care *a lot* more about the Why Deloitte? question than any other aspect of the interview. Other quesitons were basically normal.

    The second interview is a normal case format.

    Hope this helps!
