    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Deloitte (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on the website and received an interview request 2 days after applying. Job posting said "Bachelor's Degree or equivalent experience" so I applied with extensive experience(over 10 years) and no degree. Recruiter reviewed both my resume and LinkedIn profile(I have LinkedIn Premium so I can see who reviews my profile). and reached out to schedule a phone interview. Then about 20 minutes before the interview canceled for lack of degree. It's very misleading for a company to post that they'll accept experience over degree if that's not the case. Also, these things should be confirmed prior to scheduling interviews.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    They were fairly casual about the hiring process, but when asked a question the hiring manager seemed inflexible. Specifically, I asked them about why I was only being considered for what would equate to a lateral move when there were other positions I was qualified to be considered. They drove ahead with offering me a lateral move. I declined.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the senior administrative assistant position online. First contact from Deloitte requested that I submit those ghastly Hire Vue videos, without which you will not be considered. A few days later I was contacted for a gang interview, 30 minutes each with four administrative managers at their Chicago office on Wacker. It started out okay, but got more miserable with each person. By the end I couldn't wait for it to be over. Interviewers three and four had very weird, detached attitudes and asked ridiculous questions; they didn't seem to give any thought to preparation. Interviewer no. 4 wore an expression of...well, *disgust* is pretty much the only way to describe it, as she seemed to force herself through her script while wearing an expression like she smelled something bad.

    Stick with traditional answers to "greatest strength/weakness" and "where do you see yourself in 5 years" (ugh...really?) type of questions; there is no latitude for honesty or creativity. Memorize the blandest, most middle-of-the-road responses you can find on the Internet and use those ("Golly, in five years I want to the best admin EVER!! Maybe a team leader!! I hope there's cake!!"). My attempts at humor were met with expressions of confusion; don't go there. Long silences; all but the first interviewer (who actually gave me hope it would be a good day) asked me repeatedly why I didn't have any more questions while they glanced between their watch and the door, despite my bringing a list of more than 20 and asking each and every one.

    My penultimate interviewer was a man who actually said "Um...give me a minute while I read your resume," and clearly not one of the four had read the writing sample, a professional magazine article, that I had submitted with my resume and application (interviewer no. 3: "Do you have any experience writing?"). Just a terrible experience. I used to have such a high opinion of Deloitte, but those days are over.

    I was relieved when I got a standard "thanks but no thanks" e-mail less than 24 hours later, because I was terribly worried about having to work under one of those folks. I can't believe I spent five hours of PTO on that hot mess, wore heels, and wasted four pieces of lovely Crane stationery for thank-you notes (which of course didn't even arrive until after I received their charming rejection).

    Who knows? Maybe you'll hit it off with them. But dumb it WAY down. Their sites are set low.

    Negotiation

    Although the offer was great, I wasn't able to negotiate. I received the offer letter and then a call from the recruiter almost immediately. I needed time to read and digest the offer (22 pages) and asked if I could respond the next day. I called and emailed the recruiter (the next day) to discuss the offer; however, the recruiter did not respond until 3 days AFTER the offer deadline.
