    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed on campus first and fly up to San Jose for the in house interviews. On campus interview was with a tax manager, interview was more of a conversation basis, and went very smoothly. In house interview was with three tax managers/senior managers, they barely asked me any questions, mostly I was asking them questions, so preparing insightful questions to ask the interviewers are crucial.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Deloitte has a few "select schools" that they like to directly recruit from, and my school was not one of them. I proactively reached out to a recruiter and passed a brief phone screening. After a couple weeks, I phone interviewed with a manager from the office, and they invited me to a pre-interview social and into a "super day" all-day office interview.
    To be honest, every person that I met from the social to the interview were so friendly and positive. Even during the interview, I felt as if they genuinely cared about all of the candidates.
    It was definitely a pleasant experience and I accepted the offer!

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very conversational. Staffs were very supportive, saying that the process was only to check your fit for the company. At the end I was advised that maybe there's a better fit for me at other department. It's like they really cared about students and Deloitte's culture. There would be a second round on site, also very conversational.

    Associate (Audit) Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    1st round on-campus interview: very nice and casual. Had a good conversation about my internships and my perspectives of traveling and work at the big 4.

    2nd round office visit: the firm paid for flights and hotels. I spent a night there for the social event and another day for office visit and interviews. 2 back to back interviews. Generally I feel the second round is a bit tougher for Deloitte. One of the interviewers seem to nitpick my answers but I understand that they're trying to differentiate us. So be prepared for tough questions.
