I applied online - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2013.
Interview Details – Initial interview was a brief phone interview with HR Recruiter to explain the process and next steps. Followed up with 1 stage phone interview. Competency-based with focus on examples from your own work
Interview Question – How would you market yourself? It appears there's a strong culture of pursuing your own opportunities if you can market yourself with senior management Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Deloitte in September 2013.
Interview Details – 2 telephone screening interviews followed by face to face in London.
A fairly frustrating experience due to long time spans between communications, ignored emails and no confirmation or feedback post interview.
Having requested a candidate to travel to London for interview for a fairly senior role and at both a significant financial cost and need to take time off work, it is very poor professionalism to not provide any confirmation or feedback post interview.
I left the interview feeling fairly positive but feeling this is not the company for me.
Interview was about an hour with a good introduction and then a general series of questions based around relevant skills and experience. I understood there to be second interview as the next step and was told they would be in contact within a few days. Several weeks later and several un answered emails later - nothing! I assume I have not been successful.
I have always felt that all interviews are good experience irrespective of outcome. However Deloitte have left me feeling cheeted of my time and money! I expected to be treated considerably better than this for such a large organisation.
Interview Question – Nothing particularly challanging. Usual "talk me through your CV", "why are you looking to move", etc. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2012.
Interview Details – I was asked to send my CV, and was invited for interview shortly after. I had two phone interviews with partners, about two weeks apart. Each was about an hour long and covered my previous experience, my interest in the firm and the location, and my style dealing with clients. I would recommend having very consistent answers regarding the firm, and having spoken to people in the firm. Having both of these made answering these questions very straight forward and I believe this made a good impression. In between these interviews I completed an online verbal, quant and reasoning test which took around thirty minutes and was much easier than the GMAT. I was successful in my application, but never accepted the role.
Interview Question – The most difficult question was: when things go wrong with a client, how do you deal with it? This actually was challenging because it was difficult to know what kind of 'wrong' the interviewer meant. I spent a moment clarifying and then answered the question very honestly, which seemed to satisfy. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in November 2012.
Interview Details – I went for a Summer internship interview at Stonecutter Court in mid-November 2012. Deloitte is clearly well set up to conduct interviews and has a whole area apparently dedicated to interview space. I found this to be quite an intimidating place to be. My interviewer was a fairly junior female member of the graduate recruitment team, and was not as intimidating. The questions asked were essentially all competency based, nearly all relying on you providing examples of times when you have demonstrated certain competencies. I felt the interview had gone well; I was not given an internship (perhaps a result of applying relatively late in early October) but was invited to reapply for a Graduate role the next year via their Top Talent stream, which suggests that they did not reject me completely.
Interview Question – I was somewhat taken by surprise when they asked for two examples for each competency. I found myself referring to past work experience several different times in different contexts, which may have harmed my chances. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – Interviews were arranged with at most a weeks notice through the electronic sign-up system, very efficient. First round of interviews involves a group interview (which is relatively easy to navigate: contribute but don't overpower anyone) followed by a one on one interview looking at your CV, why you applied, and some basic business case questions. The second round interview is with a partner and involves giving a brief presentation on a topic given to you 3 days before the interview.
Interview Question – "How do you keep yourself organised and ensure you don't miss deadlines?" - This sounds like an easy question but it gets harder once you realise that you need to respond with specifics, not just a general 'I try to keep on top of things'. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte.
Interview Details – face to face, then assessment soon after, telephone interview on final stage.
Interview Question – There wasnt any real difficult questions, just basic. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in June 2011.
Interview Details – Via a recruiter and there were 3 interview rounds.
Interview Question – There may be some tax technical questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – A week, just to negotiate level and salary.
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2012.
Interview Details – Got to the final interview, didn't let me sit the final interview due to my A - Level grades. I have a 2.1 from a redbrick uni in the UK and a masters from the LSE and even then this company was screwing over my A levels. I resat my A levels due to some personal problems and as I could not prove this they did not let sit me the interview....the process from application to the first interview was fine although e tray was unusual as I apparently failed it but then passed like the day after, due to some computer system error.
Interview Question – Not many unexpected question, mainly just on competencies and past experiences. Once you create a rapport and a sense that you've known the interview for a long time then it becomes relatively easy to have a flowing conversation. Answer Question
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2012.
Interview Details – I was first interviewed by a manager, who met me at the Deloitte offices and took me to a coffee shop for the half-hour interview. I hadn't brushed up enough on economics so I was rusty on the technical questions (there were normal competency questions and a discussion on econometrics). I was given a second round on the basis that, while I needed to be better on the technical side, the interviewer liked me.
I next met with another manager, for an hour-long meeting with a few case studies (Royal Mail Privatisation, Cigarrette taxes) which I felt had gone quite well. Was rejected at this stage, advised to return in a year with more experience.
Interview Question – When would you use logit or probit? Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2009.
