    Challenging. The Firm is serious about it's people so they look for culture fit in addition to intelligence and experience. I took the business case very seriously and wrote about what I would bring to the Firm.

    Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online (I currently work in this field for a competitor) for a consultant position within the Human Capital Practice: Organization, Transformation & Talent Group. Within a week a I heard from a recruiter, who setup a phone interview.

    Phone Interview: Basic questions about my background, current employer, and reasons for applying to Deloitte. Lasted 30 mins, was pretty straight forward. Just be confident in your answers.

    A day later I was contacted for another phone interview, this time with a Sr. Manager from the office I indicated I wanted to work from. I really appreciated that Deloitte made the effort to get someone from this office, as it is not in one of their major cities

    Technical Phone Interview: Asked me about my experiences within change management consulting. He would ask me to explain things in more detail, and drill down into my examples. Advice is to again be confident, have lots of examples of the work you have done on hand, and be able to frame your examples (size of team/project, budget, what you did, results, etc).

    A few days later I was invited to in-person interviews. Deloitte flew me out on a Thursday night, and back Friday afternoon. The format was 1 case and 2 behavioral. To prep, I walked through Deloitte's case prep online, made sure I had solid experiences to share for about 5 different types of questions, and had a good "story" to tell about why Deloitte and why I wanted to switch.

    Case: Very straightforward. I was given the paper with the case on it. Focus was on an ERP implementation. I took my time to organize an initial response and explained how I setup/grouped the info (Strategy, opportunities, challenges). The interviewer walked me through the case, asking questions and followup questions. Key advice is to link everything back to the strategy, bring in ideas not in the case, and be able to come up with how "your" services will add value (+profit or -cost) to the company.

    Behavioral: 2 separate interviews. Very similar. Be able to have solid examples that show a variety of experiences. Be personable, that is what consulting is about. Be able to show results and value from your past experiences.

    Afterwards I followed up with emails. Heard back the following Tuesday via a phone call. Took about 2 weeks to work out the offer before I accepted. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and professional. Very impressed overall.

    Negotiation

    I countered the salary (which was already at the top of the Glassdoor range) and they met me in the middle. Always negotiate. One email that took 10 mins to craft pocketed me a decent sum. Also, don't sound too eager when you are offered, and take your time before writing the counter offer.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Deloitte like most consulting firms have a problem with recruiting experienced talent. The peer interviews with younger inexperienced managers often kills your chance to even make it in for an in person interview. No matter how nice the “peer” may seem, they see you as a threat and are not interested in you working with them side by side. I ask myself if these interviews are audited ? If deliotte cares. Take a look at the person being interviewed and he interviewer and Weigh their qualifications. Did disqualifying them make sense? Or perhaps just like young talent with less experience. Either way I can say this was not a good experience and I am not interested in applying again.

    Senior DevOps Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lake Mary, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Lake Mary, FL) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I had initial phone screen with recruiter followed by 3 technical video interview than 1 managerial interview. total process took 6+ weeks and still waiting for feedback, even after all interviews went very well.

    Its very funny they have scheduled back to interviews in every 3-4 days gap and giving feedback regularly . After that suddenly no communication and recruiter said he is also waiting for feedback after last round. It shows highly unprofessional way of recruiting especially such a big organization, whatever is the result should share with candidate. Also when recruiter and manager sitting in next office and still waiting for feedback for more than 3+weeks shows huge communication gap among team members.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Some easy programming assignment and technical conversations that I sailed through.

    The behavioral process was horrible. I was barraged with a series of stupid questions and felt bad about myself afterwards because I am too much of an intellectual to ever be a consultant. There are a lot of talented and smart people and I have nothing against the process or interviewer but my IQ is 50 points too high which leaves me at a terrible disadvantage.
