Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant

I applied through other source and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP.

Interview Details There are 3 rounds of interviews. My first interview was with a contact within the firm. The second was an interview with the head of a department. The third was supposed to be with HR, however the opportunity was put on hold. You are interviewed for both cultural fit and domain expertise.

Interview Question – You need to be prepared to demonstrate your passion and articulate that you know what direction you want to move in. There were no specific unexpected questions.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in December 2012.

Interview Details I went through 5 interviews with 2 managers, two senior managers, and a partner. There was a lot of difficulty with scheduling and I even had an interview cancelled the same morning as the interview.

Interview Question – My case was a program evaluation question: Evaluate the impact of an NGO and how they can improve their processes to make sure they are achieving their mission across the different markets they serve.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was offered 10% above my current salary and they were unwilling to make any adjustments to that. I pressed but nothing came of it. It was difficult because you have to present your case to the recruiter who then takes it "to her people" so I never got to negotiate directly with the person making the decisions.

Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Atlanta, GA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in September 2013.

Interview Details An external recruiter performed the initial contact and pre-screening with me via telephone. She also provided interviewing tips verbally and in writing. Once I passed the pre-screening call, I spoke with a Deloitte recruiting professional. After the second call, I the external recruiter informed me that Deloitte wanted to schedule a set of in-person interviews with four consultants and managers.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was posed to me outside of an interview. A consultant asked me if I would be willing to work 7 days a week (4 days away from home in another city, 1 day in a Deloitte office and 2 days on the weekend).   View Answer

Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee
London, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in March 2014.

Interview Details Initial telephone interview, face-to-face technical interview followed by assessment centre. Assessment centre consisted of group exercise, written exercise, case study presentation and 2 x senior face-to-face interviews.

Interview Question – Whole process was designed to examine every area of your consulting and technical experience. Everyone is different, but I found it difficult in the written exercise to adopt the correct tone. Exercise consisted of a long case study and slide pack, and some blank paper on which to write an open letter to the project stakeholders.   Answer Question

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Deloitte LLP in February 2014.

Interview Details 1:1 Interview with Senior Manager, Competency Based and general CV Walkthrough, then Final stage assessment centre which consisted of an Essay (1 Hour), Senior/Partner Interview (1 Hour), Case Study Presentation (1.15 Hours), Group Exercise (1 Hour). Nothing too difficult, if you know your stuff and do the relevant prep it's not that bad. Key is to having a structure to apply to the essay and case study and sticking to it as you will be pressed for time.

Reason for Declining – Salary offering was non-negotiable and not competitive with the market rate.
