Deloitte Interviews

Below we will outline the types of interviews you may encounter in your application process, and give you tips on how to prepare for them.


Deloitte First Interview and Case Study

This interview is usually part of the recruitment process for BrightStart, the summer vacation schemes and the graduate programme applicants. This interview is designed as to learn more about you and your suitability for the role you have applied for.

The interview also contains the Deloitte case study for you to discuss with your interviewers. Ahead of your interview you will be given a short period of time to read a case study and think about some answers to a set of guide questions. The information contained in the case study may include numerical information as well as articles. Once in the interview room, the interviewer will ask you questions on the case study for you to discuss with them. You may find it useful to write down your thoughts to take into the interview.

Ahead of this interview you are advised to prepare examples of activities or pieces of work you have been involved with, where you have built up into a project over a large period of time. The interviewers are looking for evidence of your role, and how you worked with others to achieve your goals. Use the the STAR method (situation, task, action, result) to organise your answers and ensure that you don’t leave anything out. You should also read up on Deloitte, as well as any news concerning the company. Be prepared to answer questions about why you have chosen this specialty.

Applicants for consulting positions will have a group exercise at this interview.


Deloitte Competency Based Interviews

Applicants for the Deloitte professional hire positions can expect to be invited to at least one competency based interview. In a competency based interview you are asked questions designed to allow you to demonstrate that you have the skills to do the jobs. These skills are in the job description and person specification for the role you are applying to, as well as Deloitte’s core competencies and values.

Prepare in advance for a competency based interviews by thinking up examples against each competency. Develop examples around the STAR method (situation, task, action, result) to ensure that you have covered all the necessary information about your role in this example and how you contributed to the outcome.


Final Interview with Presentation

The final or Deloitte partner interview is usually the last part of the recruitment process for Deloitte BrightStart and Deloitte graduate programme applicants. This is a one hour interview in which you will give a pre-prepared presentation. This interview will focus on your values and how you can contribute to Deloitte. You should prepare examples demonstrating what matters to you, how you can contribute and so on. As always, prepare these examples using the STAR method (situation, task, action, result). Other questions in the interview may test your commercial awareness, so prepare by reading the news, thinking about the implications for Deloitte; read up on the trade press; read the Deloitte website, and make sure that you know about the company’s departments, work and competitors. You should also prepare questions to ask in the interview. Make sure they are not too obvious or could be found easily by looking at the website.

Deloitte Presentation

Ahead of this interview you are sent a topic and asked to prepare a five minute presentation to give over to your Partner interviewer. Make sure you understand what is in your presentation as you will be asked questions at the end. You are allowed to take a handout for the interviewer, but you will not have access to any IT equipment.

  • Your take on European audit reforms

Deloitte - Hyderabad, August 25,2012

Posted By : Priya Rating : +602, -19

hello everyone.:)
I'm Priya again. I have already shared about the first round of Deloitte on 22nd august in our college..
We got the results of the first round on 24th and I was selected for the next round which is a case study round...
Total 150 members got selected for next round out of 500 I guess.

25th august, 2012. most memorable day of my life.:)

They started preplacement talk at 9.30am....it was for almost 3hrs...it was kind of boring..but it is always good to know about a company like Deloitte...they explained every single detail about the company...and what we wud do if we get selected and all...
but do attend preplacement talk...it will be very helpful to knw abt the company because u may get some questions abt the company in the interview...

After that we were divided into groups...like 8-10 members in a group...
they will give u a situation on which u have to discuss vth ur group and get a solution..
Some situation like
1. Some ABC company is in loss...what vl u suggest to overcome the losses??
2. There is already some company which is in lead in a city...what vl u do to  your get the company to that position??
3)A company wants to update its technologies and there are only a few resources available..what v u do?
And the company can be an IT company or mobile company..
Or it cud be also a restaurant or a pizza corner etc...

Whatever be the situation..remeber some points..
4P's(price,product,place and promotion)
3C's(company,competitors and customers)..

try to give ur points reminding these...!!

After knowing the situation..u will be given some time to discuss it vth ur group..(work like a team...its not GD...so don't argue...don't dominate...)
Its not about what solution u come up with its about how u approach(anyways they are not gonna take ur solution:P)
We had 30mins to discuss and we were provided a sheet on which we should write our points including diagrams or any graphs etc..
There will be a person watching u while u r discussing...

After the discussion they asked us to present it individually...we already discussed who will tell what...so there wasnt any tension during the presentation..

We presented our solution..each member vl have something to speak about.
after the presentation they asked some questions regarding the situation...

Remember "body language and ur confidence while speaking are very important"..

I think these are the reasons y they selected many of us for next round..:):)

FINAL ROUND:(HR interview)
There were 7panels...and trust me u should have some luck when it comes to interviews..;)
My interview was cool..the HRs were cool actually...
as soon as I entered into the room...they introduced themselves to me...
And the first question was..
HR:
1)Tell me something about urself..
2)What was ur role in ur project?
3)Tell me your leadership skills?
4)They asked some questions about the event I organized in our college
5)About family
6)Your favourite subject and why?
--All simple questions--
But they asked technical questions too in other panels...so prepare for it..
and results came at around 8pm..
For the first time in my life i was waiting to hear my name so eagerly....
and finally im a part of deloitte...:):)

My suggestion is just speak confidently..and keep a pleasant smile on your face during the interview..
and prepare for all the questions that you can possibly get from your resume...!!

All the best...:)
