    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    First interview was it HR to do the initial screening, second was a technical interview with a manager. Next 3 interviews were in the office where you meet 2 senior managers who check you consulting skills and the final one with the Partner. Overall a very well conducted interview with a clear communication at every stage and you are made aware of what is expected from you.

    Interview

    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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Mc Lean, VA).

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (Rosslyn, VA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    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

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    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

    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!
