    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    A total of 3 phone interviews and 1 face-to-face interview. The first 2 went well. The 3rd phone interview was canceled (2-3 hours before call) and rescheduled. After 4 weeks, the 3rd phone interviewed occurred. 2 weeks later try scheduled the face-to-face which also went well. After 2 weeks, I reached out and they said they hadn’t reached a decision but I was definitely a top candidate. The biggest problem is that the interview process has now been going on for 90 days and still don’t have any answer. If I get an offer, I will consider the interview process in my decision.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte (Charlotte, NC (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Two phone screens. First one was a lightning round of 20 questions. The front line recruiters ask questions they read from a script. You can easily pass this interview if you give the answers they are clearly looking for (sad I know). The second round was labeled a "culture fit" interview. The interviewer admitted she did not know what she was doing or why she was involved with the interviewing process. We had a nice talk and then she turned me down. Then I had 4 more interviews (after getting turned down on a culture fit interview). I do not know where I am in the process anymore and I don't think they know either. What a mess. I indicate this process is very difficult (below) because I don't fit the cookie cutter mold. I think they are looking for clones and minions and I am a unique character. I'm a true change agent and have been consulting and generating incredible client results for many years...but not the Deloitte way.

    Interview

    --Phone screen followed by Partner Interview

    The process felt like it took a very long time.

    After completing the partner interview in October 2018, I felt like my chances were very high and that the next step would be an in-person interview with several people.

    It is now March 2019, and I still have not heard whether I should expect an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte in July 2018.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward process up until a point. I was reached out by Deloitte for a specific role. The coordinator arranged my initial screen with the HR director. Then I was interviewed by a sr. manager and after that it would be a panel of interviewers. Everything went great and all interviews went smoothly with everyone giving the thumbs up and basically telling me it is in the bag. However, I was never called to the final interview 2 days after my last one. I waited a week before I communicated with them to find out what happened as I was assured I was moving forward. The reason? I was told by the HR director that I had to call them after my interview to declare interest (! I guess saying so repeatedly did not count). So, that is why they left me out of the process and basically disqualified a very strong candidate (their words...).
    What matters is this : it is who you know. You might be the best fit, if you do not know the right people they will toy with you, your career and your time. Be warned.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Deloitte in July 2018.

    Interview

    Process was erratic and unprofessional at times. After two strong phone interviews with members of the team and discussing moving forward (eg that I would here back from the recruiter the following week as to next steps for scheduling an in person interview), I have never been contacted. That was over two months ago. I understand that another candidate may have been preferred or maybe the position was no longer available, but I expected a company like Deloitte to have the common courtesy to send at least an email bringing the process to a close.

    Interview

    2 interviews with the recruiter, and one with the MD. Detailed review of my background, experience, industry knowledge etc. MD did the same, we spoke about culture etc. Things seemed to be going well, but then it suddenly went silent.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte.

    Interview

    This was arduous because of distance. I had four interviews over about three months via phone. Two of them were flubbed by recruiting, where the principles canceled or didn't sign off and I was waiting and finally called to find out what was going on only to have to reschedule. After getting a final interview on location I was given a verbal offer by recruiting and told to expect a package within days.

    Then nothing

    Apparently the did a reorganization while I was in the final stave of the hiring process. The position was not a part of their new organization. Getting this information took several weeks and it was only unofficially given to me.

    Interview

    WORST RECRUITER ever! The whole process took 9 months. The lead recruiting specialist in technology digital (V. D.) was unprofessional and unfit. She has no understanding of technology/digital or the different industries, didn't listen to interviewers feedback, and did not follow up.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Deloitte in May 2016.

    Interview

    Not easy. Got a personal introduction/referral which set off the hiring process. Didn't apply for a specific job, rather, I had experience and a skill set they thought would be helpful to grow a business sector. Took over two months and included interviews with 6 different PPDs. Explanation for length and depth of process was twofold - they don't ordinarily hire senior managers from outside and they needed to identify specific assignments for me to begin on day 1.

    Although frustratingly long, it was helpful in that I met many of the people I will be working with regularly, and I was equally able to interview them while concurrently being considered.

    HR rep was great throughout - very communicative and upbeat.
