    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deloitte (Sacramento, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Interviewed 8 individuals in one day. 9AM - First round of interviews consisted of half of the group going for a typical 1:1 interview, while the other half went to the case study interview. 1PM - Two individuals were chosen from the first round. Second round consisted of a 1 hour case study interview in front of 2 individuals. Case was read aloud by one interviewer, you are expected to take notes, then both interviewers ask a series of questions to get a feel of your thinking process.

    Advice: Talk through your thoughts in the case study. They aren't looking for the right answer, but rather, how you think and how you answer their questions. Be confident, but methodological. I looked at the online interview practice from McKinsey's website. It is more quantitative than this interview, but helped me to prepare.

    The people come off as very nice and open, however, you have to be very careful of everything you say and do because you are judged 100% of the time you are around them - even the office people. It is a cut-throat environment, so buckle your seat belt.

    Interview Questions

    • If you witnessed a coworker engaging in improper conduct i.e. downloading client files to a personal drive, what would you do?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is not negotiation for pay since it is quite high. You can negotiate the start date.

    Advice for an offer: Consulting is a life-style where you pretty much have no freedom. You can work from 6AM until 2AM for 6 months including the weekends. They will send you all over the country at any time regardless of your personal situation. They encourage heavy drinking and socializing, but beware, you are judged at those events as well. There is no typical hierarchical business structure, and half of the time I had no idea who my boss was or who I was reporting to.

    Both myself and another individual in my position did not (or would not) have accepted a full-time position with this firm. Even though consultants make $85,000, the hourly rate is about $20.
