hey guys, had my face-to-face interview yesterday, so maybe I can help answer a few questions that are floating around
Firstly, it took about 2 weeks for them to contact me to set up the 1st round interview, so if its been longer, definitely email/call asap.
For the retake of the tests. This according to their website does happen, although I haven’t actually read about it happening to anybody yet, and I didn’t have to retake tests. It might just be random testing once in a while. In all likelihood (obviously can’t say definitely) you will probably NOT have to retake the tests.
Case Study:- If you have applied for Consulting you will have a case study in the first round. You are given 15mins to read a few pages about a scenario and formulate some ideas on the subject matter.
For my interview which lasted for just over an hour, we spent approx 35 minutes discussing the case study- which is a bit excessive because he himself let slip that he lost track of time. Another girl that was being interviewed at the same time as me, mentioned later that her discussion on the case study was no more than 20mins.
The rest of the interview is as you all know competency based questions, but strangely enough, I only got asked:
- Why consulting, and why at Deloitte?
- 1 example of when I set a goal, which I may or may not have achieved.
That’s all! Nothing on commercial awareness, or any other competency. This might have happened because my answers were too long maybe, and that we were short on time.
Last 5 minutes of my interview were left for any questions I had for him.
Good luck dudes and dudettes!
