    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was 2 1:1 interview on campus with Deloitte Tax for the Economic Consultant position. Because they were hiring primarily for consultants in the transfer pricing group, you really have to know a lot about transfer pricing before going into the interviews. So my advice to future candidates would be to be prepared.

    Interview Questions

    • What is transfer pricing? What are the different TP methods?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Hiring: first stage was a telephone interview which required me to send some sample writing containing economic concepts before hand. The telephone interview was standard competency and also briefly covered my writing sample.

    The first stage was a 1-on-1 interview with a consultant. I was given a small case study and had to write about the underlying problems, using economic thinking and explain what the problems were. This was followed by a competency interview and a case study which I was eased in to. It required to apply basic economic theory on taxation, and so was straightforward. However, i was not told it was a competency interview before hand despite asking, so i felt under prepared.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Deloitte in November 2010.

    Interview

    Interview - Washington DC office

    1st round interview was on campus.
    On campus interview consisted of a case interview and a fit interview. I met with three people for 30 minutes each.
    2nd round interview was at the office. Took the train, arrived by 9 am. I met with 16 people in the office that day. I would say that half were more senior levels and other half was junior levels. Most of the senior people were Economics Ph.D's.

    My overall experience with Deloitte interviews was unpleasant. Office atmosphere was dead and silent. Junior people were nice but dull. Senior consultants and partners did not seem approachable nor friendly.
