I applied through other source. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

Interview

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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Deloitte (Washington, DC (US)).

    Interview

    The whole process was really positive. Everyone was professional, efficient and friendly. I met with three people (a manager, senior manager and partner) for thirty minutes each. One interview was a case study, one was behavioral and the final was a culture-fit assessment--basically, will I fit in?

    I had never done a case study before, so I focused most of my preparation on that interview. I applied for their federal sector, which is a bit different than their other sectors. The case study really focuses on your logic and whether you know how to ask the right questions. Deloitte loves the "people, process and technology" framework, so make sure to focus on that.

    Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency for a position in the ITRM practice. The process took 1 week. Phone Interview: Basic questions about my background, current employer, and reasons for applying to Deloitte. Lasted 30 mins, was pretty straight forward. Just be confident in your answers. A day later

    A day later I was contacted for another phone interview, this time with a Sr. Manager from the office I indicated I wanted to work from. Then shortly after then they brought me in for in person interviews in one day.

    Interview Questions

    • They proposed a hypothetical problem and asked me to resolve it. Each person asked their own questions and they seemed to be making it up as they went along.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I countered the salary and they accepted my counter offer. Always negotiate.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at Deloitte (Mumbai (India)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Email written to HR/Recruitment team of Deloitte:
    ==========================================
    Worst interview experience ever. Will not recommend this organization to anyone. Not even capable of managing interviews.
    What is the point in making candidates wait endlessly without even taking a single round of interview. To top it up, there were few candidates called up from Pune to Mumbai office! They were just sitting in the waiting room for hours.Complete waste of time and energy. On being asked on the status after a round of interview, the staff would only say "wait up" and then would run away and disappear for hours.
    I reached Mumbai office on the scheduled time at 11:30 AM. My first round was done at around 1:30 PM. First round status was disclosed at 4 PM only after repeatedly asking for it. After that I waited till 6 PM but still there was no communication on second round except for the usual "wait up". On asking whether or not all 4 rounds will be completed today itself (as it was already 6:30 PM and I was still waiting for 2nd round) the recruitment team started laughing and making jokes among themselves (don't know what was so funny with my question).
    After discussion with few other candidates who had already appeared for interview in the past with Deloitte, it was clear that this is a commonplace here.They enjoy making people wait entire day that too without even taking a single round of interview!!

    It is absolutely fine if you think I am taking it too far by writing this but this was the agony of many who appeared for the interview today (in the past and for the future candidates as well). It is just that I am the one speaking it out.

    Thank you very much for this experience.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deloitte (Mumbai (India)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went through recruiter for the interview and as per what I had been told the interview was for Senior consultant. So the process started like below,

    1.I went in for the interview and they made me sit in the conference room full of other individuals came for interview. They instructed everybody to submit the resume and write skill set, years of exp and time you came in - I mean why I can understand time I came in but why years of exp and skill set isn't that the first line on you resume
    2.I wrote my skill set as HTML5,.Net,JavaScript and AngularJS one guy called me and asked are you a .Net resource or a Java resource. Wow he didn't even aware that JavaScript has nothing to do with Java. The guy standing in there kept asking what comes to your mind when you think about Deloitte and showed some impressive videos etc. But after a time it was getting repetitive and boring
    3.I kept waiting for the interview for more than 2 hours that was again -1 for Deloitte
    4.I went for the interview. The interviewer didn't even bothered to introduce him for the first time. He made me sit in the cubicle (so unprofessional I could hear the other interview) and said he will be back. The guy went on a call and came back after 5 minutes
    5.When he was back he introduced himself and the I could guess that this guy was not at all interested in taking my interview. He asked me questions you will ask to a 2 years or 3 years experienced guy. The interviewer wasn't even interested in listening and was looking all around when I was answering his questions. (-1 for this)
    6.Anyways I completed the interview and I knew the result.

    Basically the position was for junior guys if they had few years of experience in .Net could have easily passed the interview and not for a senior guy as I had been told. I am not sure about the case though but anyways I wasted my weekend.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Deloitte (Bangalore (India)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Five Stages of the interview process
    1.Technical Round-1
    2.Technical Round-2
    3.Technical Round-3
    4.English test
    5.HR discussion

    I have completed all rounds of the interview.
    Within 3 days, the HR called me up and discussed about the compensation.
    After coming to a conclusion on the salary,I was asked to provide few documents related to work experience and education.
    They have sent me a welcome mail and asked me to provide electronic acceptance.
    I have provided my acceptance and the HR gave me a tentative joining date.

    After a week the HR calls me up again and says that they cannot proceed further with my candidature because the project didnt materialize.

    Believe me guys.Once I have accepted the offer,they have asked me to resign in my existing company.
    And after a week,they say they cannot proceed further due to lack of projects.
    The HR guys from Deloitte are very UNPROFESSIONAL. They will not tell you the position of your offer status unless you call them.

    And surprisingly, this company talks about professionalism and ethics on their web site which they dont follow.They will keep your career in danger by offering you positions and revoking them later.

    So please be careful.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    Very organized recruiting and follow-up process. 1st round consisted of one behavioral and one case interview. While most people focus a lot on case interview preparation, my recommendation is to spend enough time preparing for fit and behavioral interview as well. Deloitte wants people who can show that they are performers and excellent team players who will represent the firm well at client site.

    Second round is an all day event at a Deloitte office and includes an individual case, a group case and a behavioral interview with senior managers and partners. The individual case and behavioral interview format is similar to first round.

    Interview Questions

    • Group interviews can get a bit tricky as you need to show that you can help the team move forward through consensus. Your group consists of fellow candidates who you hardly know, have very different working styles and each one is trying to impress the interviewers so things can get out of control quickly.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little room for salary negotiations
