    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick response and less time taking. I had 3 rounds of interview and all three of them were telephonic. The team was very quick in responding about my acceptance/rejection. The interviews were behavioral and I was asked about my previous experience and learning from that.
    My final round was with the regional head of the team and I received the offer letter within a week. I accepted the offer immediately and there was a background verification process after that. The interviewing process was very smooth and I am very happy with the team's response time

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a job fair that was held at my university. The first round was two thirty-minute back-to-back interviews with a partner and a senior manager on-campus. These were more behavioral-based interviews. After I cleared this round, I received a phone call the very next day to schedule an interview at their downtown office in Chicago. The second round interviews were more personal, that is, the aim was to get to know the candidate. They were more conversational in nature.

    Organization Transformation Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was one on one in 3 sequential interviews. One interviewer used a business case interview format where they provide a scenario, and I had to explain how I would address it.

    They provided a room for me and the interviewers came into the room to speak with me. One interviewer only had 20 minutes for what should have been a 45 minute interview. It felt rushed.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer provided a scenario of a privately held company with a long-tenured CEO who didn't like consultants or change. The question was how would I lead them through the process of segmenting their business by product line.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    HR person was very nice for the phone screen. Phase I was talking to several different people in a series of phone calls. Half of the people didn't talk at all. One of the interviewers asked me to go through EACH bullet of the THREE PAGE JOB DESCRIPTION and tell her, "in situation, action, outcome format," an example of when I had experienced each of these job duties. Grueling. And then she actually challenged me on why I didn't take different actions in some of the examples I provided. You're really going to challenge me about why I made certain business decisions several years and 2 jobs ago? Seriously.

    PeopleSoft Senior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke initially with the recruiting director a couple times to discuss my previous experiences and to get an understanding of why I wanted to join Deloitte. These were the most difficult discussions as Deloitte wanted to ensure that as an experienced hire, I understood Deloitte values and the culture. The 2nd interview was a phone interview with a Senior Manager to answer a few general questions on my background and to discuss my previous project experience and knowledge of project delivery. The 3rd Interviewer was specific to PeopleSoft and focused on my product knowledge. The last interviews (2) were an onsite interview in a different location than where I lived. I flew out on a Thursday for my early Friday interview. Not sure why it worked this way, but I assume it was to support the schedules of the Partner and Director that I met with on Friday. The interview with the partner was specific to core consulting skills and the value that I bring to Deloitte. The other interview was a question/answer session focused on a business case study.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews and was told I did exceptionally well.

When I called a month later and left two voicemails and a follow up email, I never got any response. I asked if I cold just get a call back to let me know if I was still being considered, or if the position had been filled. Regardless, I still got no response. How professional of a Top 4. My recruiters name was Mary Fabien.
