Anonymous Interview Candidate
London, England

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in February 2014.

Interview Details Applied for business analysis role in A&A -3 stages - first an informal conversation with HR. 2nd meant to be f2f with director but due to unavailability in london was conducted over phone. AC is exactly what is described on the forum. Most of my time went in chasing HR to get the dates. Process went in for 3 months due to Xmas in between

Interview Question – Nothing unusual   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Too low and below my current level.

I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP.

Interview Details Applied online, was invited for an interview after completing two written questions. First interview was easy, one interviewer, two medium case studies and 6 competency questions. A bit of personal discussion, very friendly interviewer.
Made it to the second interview, again very friendly interviewer, a more difficult and long case study and no time for any other questions.
Overall the level was not that high, did not get an offer though, with the feedback just pointing the fact of lack of experience.

Interview Question – Case study of the second interview was demanding in terms of extend of questions.   Answer Question

Phone interview with HR - asked general questions: why Deloitte, why consulting, what would you bring to the role etc.

Phone interview with Senior Manager (would have been face to face except for his availability) - was supposed to be competency interview, but just asked general questions. Some technical questions around programme leadership/management.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in April 2011.

Interview Details 2 interviews + phone interview (very short), personality tests, skills tests.

Advice: Be honest. Be yourself. They appreciate your honesty more than "the answer they want to hear". Sometimes you might feel that they want to control your answer, don't get tricked by this - answer every question truthfully. And as always, if you can back up everything you say you should do fine.

Interview Question – "One reason to why you wouldn't accept an offer from us?"   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Got a (much) better offer at another firm.

I applied online and interviewed at Deloitte LLP.

Interview Details Applied through the careers website. The HR was very prompt in getting back to me and setting up the interview process. The Interview phase was long. Had to go through 2 phone interviews and 3 in person interviews. The results of the interview process were also known in a timely manner

Interview Details Communication initially can take a long time. Once the process starts you'll know fairly quickly if you're going to continue the process. A few interviews and you'll be on your way to meeting the partner.

Interview Question – Really being able to handle subject matter questions that show you an deal with questions above your expected knowledge level while staying calm and being logical are key   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in October 2010.

Interview Details Campus hire - came on site to the Masters program and solicited resumes. For the interview itself, it was in 3 parts: a "behavioral fit" one-on-one interview with a senior staff in the same consulting area and then a case study scenario, where I described how I would deal with the challenge. It was basically about arriving at a client site, and they wanted to do X, and what are the things I would want to know in order to get started figuring out the solution to propose. I used the whiteboard and asked questions back. The third part (the call back) was another behavioral fit -- but this time with more probing questions about what kind of work I wanted to do, and what I did or did not like about previous jobs or projects.

Interview Question – Most difficult question was just what I would have done differently after I explained a difficult situation at a previous employer. I didn't want to sound like I had not done the right thing, but I also wanted to show I had learned from my experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation; it is a "take it or leave it" offer -- they want to start everyone at the same price point. On the good side, the benefits are already great (25 days vacation, annual bonuses) on top of an industry high salary. Only thing I wanted to negotiate was title -- I thought I should have started the next level up.
