    Graduate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First Round Interview: Brief telephone interview with head of HR - who was pleasant and friendly. Asked why Deloitte, Why Consulting, What my particular business unit.

    Second Round Interview: Group Interview
    This was a case study with a table full of other candidates and two facilitators (there were a few such tables in one conference room).
    Day began with an introduction to Deloitte, then an individual case study, group case study, then one-on-one interview with facilitators/managers.
    Make sure you engage with the team and participate but do not dominate conversation.
    It is important to build rapport with the team and managers and establish yourself as a good team player.
    One-on-one interview - think about why you want to be in that particular business unit compared to others, what has brought you to this point, why you applied for the role, what you will do if you don't get the role.

    Third Interview: Case Studies & Partner Interview
    Two Case Studies - make sure you have read up on market sizing and case study questions, calculating break even and make or buy examples. Use the interviewer as they are employees in your business unit and will be able to help / they are assessing you the whole time to see if you are someone they want to work with.
    Partner Interview - more of an informal chat. Think about your strengths and weaknesses, and try to anticipate any questions that they may have about your weaknesses. The partner was friendly but professional and will definitely pressure test you with any questions or queries that you have - gaps in your resume, education, experience, approach.
    Think about the other jobs that you are applying for and will apply for - what key competencies or interests do you have that are similar. Eg - what are your interests, strengths, deliverables.
    Where do you see yourself in five years? How would your parents/friends/colleagues describe you?
    Between the case studies and partner interview also take some time to gather your thoughts and process your experience in the case studies. The partner will probably ask you how you think you went and any challenges you faced. This is your opportunity to show your self-awareness and development so definitely take a minute or two between interviews to process this.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. Case Study: what are your reasons for choosing/ not choosing to invest in this company. Pitch the idea to your manager.
      2. Market Sizing: what is the market for tyre valves in Australia. Can you recommend the company to enter the market? How should they do so?

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Online application, online numerical/logical/aptitude tests, phone interview, assessment centre

    Interview Questions
    • The online tests were very different to the usual numerical/verbal/IQ types required by other Big4 or IBs, could surprise you in the beginning. Interviewer were quite unfriendly, just asking questions without really engaging in the conversation. From initial screening to first phone interview was fast, though it takes about 2 weeks for the company to get back even though the interviewer said it would only take a few days.   Answer Question

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview Details

    Very disorganized and convuluted. Ended up being over 8 interviews, lots of positive feedback. They offered me the job and then just as i was waiting to sign final paperwork pulled it. I suspect they were going through a restructure however the whole way it was handled was appalling. The partners I met were fine but their support staff are really disappointing. I would never use them as a firm now.

    Don't trust them. Only deal with the partners directly. The Hr people were really weak.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Online application, phone interview, personality and intelligence test, assessment centre then partner interview.

    Overall the process was relatively stress free. Most people are very friendly from Deloitte unlike other interviews I've been through. Except an HR scold me for leaving her a voice message which is 'too long', which made me hesitate on accepting their offer. However in the end I did accept the offer as I decided that Deloitte has a culture which suits me.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deloitte in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional.

    After making contact with a partner in the Technology practice I was referred to an HR Manager who rescheduled a first telephone interview four times in one day, 30-60mins AFTER the interviews were scheduled to start. The manager didn't even blink an eye in recognition that she was wasting my time and behaving extremely unprofessionally.

    Deloittes values include 'Talk straight' including being respectful of other people's (time, etc...) however I have not seen this demonstrated by their HR team.

    Deloitte are now no longer a target company of mine. Moving on.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deloitte in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got a phone call the day after applications closed (was a weekend too!) to arrange an Assessment Centre time.

    The AC itself consists of a 1/2 hour presentation by partners, managers and recent grads on the firm and the specific division. Morning tea is then served and you get the opportunity to chat with employees and your assessors.

    The actual group assessment begins afterward, in which you are given a case scenario with several choices of what to do in the context of the scenario. You are allocated one of the choices and must present the details of that choice to the rest of the group. After the choices are presented, the group discusses the choices and makes a decision on what to do. A written assessment follows afterward in which you put forward an argument to a "senior figure" as to which choices would be best.
