Tax Consultant I Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in October 2014.

Interview Details

I applied for an on campus interview shortly before attending an on campus meet the firms event. I spoke with an associate at the event and then a couple days later was notified that I was selected for an on campus interview. I interviewed with a partner for about 25 minutes. It was basically just an informal conversation where I talked about my experience. She only asked me one or two behavioral type questions.

About a week later I was notified that I had been selected for an office visit in Detroit with a pre-night mixer the night before. The mixer was pretty informal and relaxed. I chatted with a tax manager there for close to an hour. Everyone was extremely nice and professional.

The next day I had three interviews and a lunch at the Deloitte office. Again, everyone was really nice, easy going, and professional. Interviewed with a manager and two partners followed by a lunch with two associates. There were no difficult questions throughout the day. It felt like they just wanted to get to know me better and it wasn't about quizzing me with interview style questions.

Within about a week I had a call from one of the partners I interviewed with and he offered me the position. Before accepting, I also received an email from the market managing partner offering to discuss his perspective and answer any questions I might have. A few other associates also contacted me to answer any questions I might have. All in all, the interview process was quite a pleasant experience. Everyone was extremely helpful and available to answer any questions all along the way. I cannot say it enough how professional everyone appears to be as well. From start to finish the whole process only took about two and a half weeks.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by 3 different interviewers in 30 minutes intervals. 2 of the interviews were very casual conversations where the interviewer was more concerned in getting to know me as a person than to ask behavioral or situational questions. The other conversation was very script like designed, with behavioral questions and situational questions.
