    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    The overall process from application to interview took around 2-3 months but throughout you were kept up to date with progress and informed of developments at all key stages. When invited to interview lots of information was provided on the company website which I feel prepared me fully for the interview process. The actual interview was very relaxed, the intreviewer was very friendly and put you at ease immediately and the questions were generally what is to be expected of this kind of competency based interview. They stuck to asking questions about you and didn't go into the company or sector that much.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Recruitment was via an agency. The interview process was in two phases. The first was with a Manager. He was very friendly, made me feel at ease. I got the feeling he wanted to know if I was a people person in addition to being able to audit financial statements. the second phase was with the audit partner. I think I was more of a formality than any real test of my knowledge. I believe the 2nd interview was to assess me as a person from the partner's point of view.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. There is a standard rate by HR

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte in October 2013.

    Interview

    Very quick process, applied in late August for an October start. Initially application form, followed by aptitude tests, e-tray exercise (now replaced with a critical thinking test), first interview (competency based, very rigorous) and a final partner interview (informal, friendly).

    The first interview - check through Deloitte's competencies and have at least 2 examples of each to show skills relevant to the firm.

    The Partner interview - prepare case study well and be prepared to answer questions thrown at you about your pitch. Research everything you're talking about thoroughly.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    After being short listed had a 1 hour telephone interview. Totally off guard and not like any other telephone interview I have done.

    Be prepared to be probed.. avoid using "we" and use "I" as much as you can. The answers i gave were not precise enough and can be cataogorised as " scatter gun " answers. One tip is to try to keep it concise as you can almost like text book answers, but thats just how they like it.. and then be prepared to be probed.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    First step is an online application, with bullets points stating motivation for working at Deloitte, and what you expect to be doing in the first year.

    Next is a series on online tests, followed by the e-tray.

    E-tray is in two parts, the first is reading and responding to e-mails (use supporting information to guide your answers, noting who's responsible for what tasks, and information surrounding the fictional business and its client).

    The second part is a written exercise, where you give a recommendation based on evidence provided in the supporting information, and e-mail attachments. Advice is to be objective, and don't focus too much on your favored option - I doubt there is a 'correct' answer, just be able to back up the choice you are most comfortable with.

    First interview - a competency interview. The assessor will also want to know your motivation for why Deloitte, and what you know about the role/qualification, and possibly what you know about the other areas of the business, e.g. what other functions in ERS and what do they do.
