    Interview Details

    Went to the social and the on campus interview. Really depends on the interviewer you get, who you might have met the social. My interviewer was a senior manager and was very strict and asked behavioral questions from a packet, though friends had one where it was more conversational with no behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Deloitte in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got this interview through the CPA university recruitment process.

    The interview I got was 2 interviews of 30 minutes each.

    1. The first one was with 2 managers asking typical behavioural questions tailored to my CACEE/resume. For this part it is good to practice the typical behavioural interview questions.

    2. The second one was with a partner and it was more of a conversation rather than typical interview. The first question I got was "Tell me about yourself."

    Interview Questions
    • If you have a group project that conflicts with your studies, how will you handle it ?
      Tell me a time where you had to motivate people, and how did you do it ?

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    1. Online aptitude test (Verbal and numerical)
    2. Group Assessment with around 8 candidates in a grp, the group discussion would be case-based with 2 different sets of data (so 4 candidates get data set A and others are data set B). The case is rather easy, simple business sense already enough (like different marketing channel)..
    3. Final interview with partner: My interview only lasted for around 10 minutes and I was pretty sure I could get the offer because I can see the partner is impressed. Self introduction and asked about career plan for short term and long term..

    Interview Questions

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was mainly personality based. The firm was looking for professionals who have similar outlooks on life and work and wanted the hired staff to fit in well with the established personnel. Most questions were "Describe a time that you..." as opposed to other interviews that typically test one's skills. Overall, it was a harmless event.

    I was able to negotiate my location but definitely not my salary and/or benefits.
