    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Parsippany, NJ).

    Interview

    Hiring process consisted of a first round 1:1 interview. About two weeks later I received a phone call for a second interview at the office site. That consisted of two 1:1 interviews. Really easy, conversational. About three behavioral questions between all three interviews.

    Intern - Tax Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Detroit, MI) in November 2012.

    Interview

    One interview on campus, a series of interviews at the Office. There was almost no behavioral questions given during the interview. The interview felt more like a chance for the senior managers and partners to get to know who I was.

    A good takeaway from my experience for any internship interview is to be yourself. Tell your hiring manager what excites you, and what your career goals are. Also, be interested in the partners/managers careers: how they got where they were, why did they choose the specific service line, etc. If you come across these questions honestly, it will make you stand out from the competition.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It took about a week and a half for them to get back to me. The pay was negotiable, but was more than I was expecting to make, so I hastily accepted.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I first was contacted by HR for a phone interview. I then had an on campus interview in Miami. Later I had a back to back skype interview with 2 people. The first was friendly and chose questions that could facilitate a conversation the second clearly did not like me and asked absurdly hard questions to answer on the spot. i would recommend practicing situational questions before interviewing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Portland, OR) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus career services website. I interviewed with two recruiters, one after the other in a one-on-one setting. They were very reserved compared to recruiters from other accounting firms. I got the offer to travel to Portland for a second interview about two weeks later.

    In Portland I interviewed with four people, one at a time. I interviewed with staff, directors, and partners. I also went to lunch with two younger staff members.

    Overall, it seemed like a fairly reserved office.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deloitte (Milwaukee, WI) in April 2010.

    Interview

    After submitting a resume for a matching program at my university, I interviewed at our on campus career service center. Greeted by the college recruiter, one audit associate, and one present audit intern. It was quite informal for the greeting (but it was also the end of the day of interviews). Then had a 30-minute interview with a partner of the firm in Milwaukee. That was very enjoyable. He asked why Deloitte and why tax? Otherwise we just talked about my experience in groups and what I like to do for fun. It seemed more like a personality interview rather than skills. All the big 4 will teach you what you need to know when you start working. Deloitte seemed to be looking for interns only in their Milwaukee office, not changing of locations.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Deloitte (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    They first called me for a phone interview asking me if I was still interested in accounting and tax. A few months later, they phoned me and set up an in office interview two weeks later. The in-office interview consisted of two 1 on 1 interviews of about 30 minutes each. The first interview was a partner that was well prepared and experienced, while the 2nd interviewer was less formal and more relaxed. They asked similar questions. Everything is well organized and went very quickly.

    Tax Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Houston, TX) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The process began with a presentation from the firm to us at the university...a week or two passed and then came a dinner with the firm's professionals on campus. The day after that interview was the on-campus interview. This interview was two back-to-back 30-minute 1:1 interviews. While the idea of back-to-back interviews sounded horrible at the time, these were laidback interviews, not at all scary. In fact, because the interviews are conducted conversationally, one must instead worry about being *too* casual.

    A week or so after the interviews, the firm notifies the students they will be inviting to recruit with them, as well as the students they will be inviting to the office. While I was invited to the office and invited to continue recruiting, I declined this firm, because I felt I already had too many invitations on my plate. Note that the job offer does not come until after the office visit.
