    Economic Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    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

    Economic Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Melbourne (Australia)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    1. Online application: a few general and behavioural questions, plus cover letter and resume.
    2. Psychiometric test: 10 logical questions, make the right choice based on a short paragraph of article.
    3. Telephone interview: By a graduate recruiting team member, asking some general questions again.
    4. Assessment Centre.

    I got to the phone interview process a week after completing the psychometric assessment, which was completely unexpected. I did not perform well in that interview, and received a rejection email next morning. One of my friends got his invitation to the assessment centre at the end of his phone interview, which made me jealous.
