    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Total of 5 interviews: 2 Phone screens, 3 in-person interviews in Deloitte's Chicago office.

    1. HR Round - Just a chit chat about background and whether a suitable fit for the role in question. Lasted about 20 minutes.

    2. Technical Round - Yet another chit chat round, more or less focusing on overall technical background and work experience. Lasted about 20 minutes.

    3. Focus Interview - 45 minutes, in-person - Conducted by a specialist leader, who will grill on the core technical questions and check if we are a good fit.

    4. Behavioral Interview - 45 minutes, in-person - Conducted by a senior executive like a partner who asks questions on soft skills, expectations from company, the usual behavioral questions. They see if you are culturally a good fit for Deloitte.

    5. Case Study - 45 minutes, in-person - Conducted by yet another senior manager. My experience wasn't that great in this round as the interviewer was too reluctant and rushed to be done with it. He basically read out the case study from his laptop and won't let me access the problem statement or case review throughout the interview. I had to go on whatever I could remember from his first reading.

    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.

    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.

    Accounting & Reporting Transformation - Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (Seattle, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with regional recruiter describing position and qualifications. Then I was brought in for a 3-round office interview with a Manager, Senior Manager, and Partner. Typical for the industry. It went well and within 2 days I received a call from the national recruiter saying I would be receiving an offer. She acknowledged it could take "several weeks" for the HR and national approval process to be completed, which was not ideal but I could live with. Weeks went on and all I heard was there were no updates, nothing else the recruiter could tell me, and no clue on timeline. I heard that over the course of 2 months, and 8 weeks later I still do not have an answer. No offer, still hung up in the final approval process, and no indication of when I might find out. Good people in the office I applied to, but huge flaw in the current application process at a national level.

    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.
