    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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 Administrative Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    I first had to do a digital interview, which was weird. That consisted of me sitting in front of a computer, dressed like I was going to an in person interview, and answering questions to my built in computer camera. The question pop up on the screen and then they record your response - you get 3 minutes for each response, but you don't have to take that long. The questions were pretty basic, but there were 8 (!) of them, which was more than I expected. I thought I did terribly, but I did get a call for an in person interview. That was with the head of office services and head of administrative services. Again, very typical questions - why do you want to work at Deloitte, what's your biggest strength and weakness, how would you deal with certain situations, etc. I then went in for an interview with the executives the role supported. I had 3 30 minute interviews, and those were totally different. I guess they just want to see your personality, but they hardly asked any questions - I felt like it was more up to me to guide the conversation. It was alright, just very different. SO make sure you have questions prepared to ask! And make sure you know a little bit about the company too. Oh, and you do have to take a Microsoft skills assessment as well as a proofreading assessment. The only one I had a difficult time with was the Outlook test because my current company doesn't use Outlook so I am way out of practice - but I still passed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Deloitte (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    It was quick and simple. If you haven't networked in the company, the interviews are useless. You need to have spoken to each and every person you can access on LinkedIn to get a good review. Overall the process was simple.
