    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Lincoln, NE) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter and another staff member were waiting with applicants and pre interviewing before each applicant went in to interview with a member of the audit or tax staff in a separate room. The interview was relatively short, only about thirty minutes.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Deloitte (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After spending 30 minutes on the website simply trying to use their archaic application software, I withdrew my application. If a consulting firm this size can't even use modern and slick methods to recruit, I'm not interested. What a joke. Remind me never to use their services when I move into my next leadership role.

    Leadership Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Stamford, CT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through my school and was selected for a 30 minute on-campus interview with a partner from the firm. It was very relaxed and consisted of just getting to know each other. The second half was open for questions to ask about the firm. About 2 weeks later I was asked to participate in the second round of interviews which were online over webcams. Two 30 minute interviews, one with a partner and one with a senior manager. These were the same format as the first. The next day I was notified that I was invited to the conference.

    Senior Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The process was unnecessarily lengthy and partly unprofessional. I was contacted by an experienced hire in their human capital - talent and transformation practice, and the initial phone screening went well. I was then scheduled a few weeks later for a technical interview with a senior manager. At the said interview time, the interviewer did not show up. About 20 minutes later, I contacted the recruiter and scheduler and they apologized stating the interviewer was on a client engagement and could not make it. That she could not alert the recruiter or scheduler (even 10 mins before the interview) to let them know she was tied up, yet could let them know she was unavailable when they reached her after I contacted them asking where she was, to me was unprofessional and a waste of my time.
    After going back and forth with the scheduler, I was finally rescheduled with another manager for the technical phone interview, which went well. Shortly thereafter I was invited to an in-office "interview day" held on specific Fridays of the month. Here's where another bottleneck occurred as scheduling the interview date was held up for months due to "business priorities". The recruiter indicated she had to get approval to schedule me though I was invited, however, she had not secured that approval due to several reasons including the priority of Fall recruiting of MBAs. This delay lasted a full 3-4 months. At some point early this year the recruiter and I were in touch again and she was open to scheduling me in the Feb-March timeframe to which I agreed. I was told the "level" at which I would be brought in if I was offered the job would only be determined after the final in-office interview. As an experienced hire with more than 10 years of experience, I was targeting a manager position.
    The interview day came and I thought I did pretty well, although I noticed one of the interviewers (manager level) kept asking me questions about a business I founded and was running. I clearly stated I would not be involved if I transitioned to FT employment with Deloitte but she pressed on it pretty hard anyway. Early the following week, the recruiter called to tell me they would not be offering me the job due to lack of depth in human capital specific experience. What surprised me was the fact that based on my resume, they could have made this assessment even before the technical interview but it was never a problem as I sailed through the interview process. To me, it was a royal waste of my time to have to go through such a lengthy and poorly managed process just to tell me that as the reason to not offer the job. Ironically, I later found out they were considering me for the senior consultant role as opposed to the manager role I wanted. I doubt I would have taken a sr consultant offer anyway, as it was not worth giving up my current employment and business to take on all that travel and hectic lifestyle.
    On the positive side, once they finally scheduled me for the interview this year, a consultant was assigned to assist with any questions and preparations and that individual was helpful. The recruiter was also professional and responsive, though she seemed to have her hands tied throughout most of the process until the end when approval was granted to move forward.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First, HR screening. Then a phone call with a manager. I thought since it was a phone interview it would be behavioral, but he actually asked me a few technical questions. The interviewer was very nice and supportive, made me feel comfortable. In three business days HR called me informing that I was selected for the final round. The final round consisted of 2 30-minute video interviews. One with a senior manager, another with a director. The first one was very technical (questions are listed below), the second one was behavioral (just went over my resume and talked about classes I was taking). 2 days later I got a call from the director saying that I was selected for the National Leadership Conference. Overall the experience was great. The recruiter was very responsive and walked me through the whole process.
    I hope my review helps you to prepare! Good luck!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte in March 2017.

    Interview

    First round was with a recruiter at my university. Basic behavioral questions, nothing too difficult. About 3 weeks later I was invited to second rounds at the office I was interested in for back to back interviews with two partners. The first partner didn't really ask any questions, just asked me what questions I had, so make sure you have a lot! The second interview was a lot of behavioral questions, some more difficult than average (about leadership, some questions about my thoughts on the accounting industry, about seeking out help, etc.)

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Two, 30 minute HireVue virtual interviews. Interviewers were very casual in their questions. I felt like it was more of a conversation, than an interview. I was asked about how I work on a team, where I want to take my future, and why I want to do tax. I had the opportunity to share what I knew about the firm.

It's not like a start up where you get free lunch everyday, but I would say you get a nice lunch at least once a week. During busy season all dinners are paid for and sometimes lunch for the whole week as well. - You get to work with really smart people that have a lot to offer in terms of knowledge and experience. - Depending on how proactive you are, you can work on a variety of different clients from large SEC clients to small private clients. - The opportunity for advancement is there. As long as you're doing a good job, you will systematically keep moving up. There are also opportunities outside of audit which you can pursue. One thing to note about opportunities outside of audit is that they make it seem like it's an easy switch, but it's not. It's actually very difficult. It can be done but you have to be highly rated and the timing has to be right.” – Full Review
