    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Delta Partners.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews - all of them were via LYNC.
    The first 2 interviews were by managers and the latter 2 were by partners.

    I found all interviews intellectually challenging. Furthermore, you have to be prepared to answer why TMD and to share what you have done previously to become an ideal candidate in the industry.

    The cases are not necessarily limited to the industry.

    Interview

    Less than 24 hours notice for my first interview (case study) - I felt I had to go with it as the graduate recruiter in the Dubai office had taken weeks to finally schedule it.

    The manager I spoke to during the interview was friendly, conversational. He was happy to talk about his past experience with the company and answer any questions I have about new joiners.

    The interview started a bit late due to recruiter having a conference call. Other than that, the experience was an enjoyable one, other employees greeted me and seemed really friendly. It was a consultancy case interview, the outcome of it is yet to be seen.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Delta Partners (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)).

    Interview

    I applied through university job fair, then got invited to first round of interviews. Almost all interviews (2 rounds, 2 interviews each) were of similar format (behavioral, fit, and case questions). The first two were with a Principal and a Senior Associate. The final round consisted of also two interviews with partners with "tell me about yourself" questions, a case, and questions to interviewer. Try to prepare some industry related questions instead of discussing the interviewer's personal experience with the company. You have to have a very compelling story as well as a strong reason for joining DP. You should also show some excitement about working in TMD industries. Overall, the process was very smooth.
