Staff Accountant Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Deloitte (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in September 2013.

Interview

2 rounds of behavioural based interviews with 2 interviewers; one manager and one senior. Each interview lasted about half an hour, and questions surrounded the experiences shown on my resume. There were a few questions with the nature of "tell me about a time when... (a difficult situation and how you solved it)", and was pretty easy if you had prepared a few experience stories ahead of time.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about a time when your boss/superior asked you to do something you didn't agree with.   Answer Question
