    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through my university's career center and was notified by email that I have been selected for round 1 of interviews. Round 1 is a virtual interview, phone, in this case. It was 2 30 minute interviews with 2 different hr reps. The first one lasted about 30 minutes and was the behavioral interview. They asked me about myself, about different things I was involve with in school, and how I have handled different scenarios with regards to group activities, leadership and being organized. This interview was fairly easy, and like many others I have had.
    Then just after finishing up with the first interview, the second recruiter called for the technical interview. This interview lasted about 30 minutes as well. I was asked about various topics with regard to project management and operations and then focus shifted toward excel based questions. First these started out basic then they got more challenging (pivot tables, vlookup, etc).
    This was all for the round 1 interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between a budget and a forecast?
      What is the purpose of internal auditing?
      Describe one time you had to relay sensitive information to someone, and how you did it
      What is a circular error in excel? What is hard coding?
      In excel how can you find which cells have formulas in them and which do not? And how would you let someone know something regarding information in a particular cell? (highlight or use comment feature)

Before the official interview they organized pre-interview nite for candidates and PPD, mngr to mingle around, which made me nervous but actually turned out to be a good chance to know each other.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three interviews by one partner and two managers. You got to tour the whole building as well as meet other intern candidates. From my experience, the interview questions were mostly behavioral so if you prep well enough on basic interview questions, speak confidently, and relate to your interviewer, you will be in good hands.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Francisco, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through campus career center. Was invited to first round which was standard 30 min behavioral and 30 minute case. Case was about an expanding retail company consolidating HR & brand (surprisingly not an m&a case). Second round (Blitz) was unique for me because I was studying abroad so I interviewed through Skype (one more case and one more behavioral). Overall process is very smooth and straightforward, and everyone in the process was very cool and easy to talk with. Also your assigned 'buddy' is extremely helpful-definitely utilize them and do not be afraid to ask questions!
