    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got invited to e-tray test, behavioral questions and then replying emails to see how you response doing muti tasks. I did prepare for the fit questions but they were quite a lot and due to time constraints I did not really fill in the "correct" selections.

    Interview Questions
    • For the email questions, they asked you to reply to emails from different clients and managers, I thin they just wanted to see how you cope these flooded mails at the same time and how to manage a good relationship with both clients and people in the office.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    You have a manager interview first which is a lot less daunting than you would think, this is after all of your testing etc. You speak about three competencies and apply questions to them and will be asked questions around them and more. It is more of a conversation and asking why you want to be working for Deloitte other than any other big four company.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a recruiter to join Deloitte Dublin. I was invited to a face to face technical interview and this was the worst interview of my life. The interview was held in London.

    The reason why it was the worst interview of my life is that the interviewer was late by 45 minutes. The interview was due to start at 8 am and finish at 9 am and I had to go to work after that. The interviewer apologised but if I was the one who had been late I would've been walked out of the office.

    He carried on with the interview and asked questions about C#, SQL, OOP, threads and general software engineering questions and some of his answers where wrong but he didn't know so he thought my answers where incorrect. He had about 10 years experience and I have only 2 years experience so he should have known the right answers but he didn't. As a result he said I had a few technical gaps which I did not.

    I was very late for work because of his lack of punctuality but when I explained to him that I would be late to work he didn't even apologise or show empathy.

    he wasn't even wearing a tie and he had rolled up sleeves in the interview yet he gave feedback that I was a bit too informal yet I had a full suit on and was very professional.

    I have worked for a top 25 FTSE 100 company and a world top 20 global IT firm and have outstanding performance at both yet this guy thought I wouldn't be good enough to work at Deloitte?

    After I realised that these big four firms do not want the best talent out there and are looking for people who are just good at making power point presentations and have the same level of incompetence as them.

    Stay away if you are a top flight software professional!!
