I had my telephone interview for Deloitte last week so thought i’d let anyone know how it went.
I had a femal interviewer with an Eastern European accent, but she spoke perfect english and I understood everything she said…
She introduced herself and explained the purpose of the interview, she waffled a bit and I found myself beginning to talk after I thought she had finished, but then she carried on talking and we spoke over eachother! NOT GOOD!
She asked me a first question of WHY DELOITTE. I thought I had prepared well but when it came to it I wish I had more to say. I said i’d finished and she said ‘is that it?’. I racked my brains and came up with a few more reasons, and that was that.
She then asked what would I be doing in the first year. I rolled off everything about exams, visiting client sites (audit), making new friends and contacts, getting to know colleagues, all the usual. From he answer she picked up on ‘in what way will you be getting to know colleagues?’ I answered through the buddying system with more experienced associates, speaking to people at college from your intake and others, in the office etc.
And that was it! two questions, both of which I felt I answered rubbishly!
Where was the ‘difficult message’ question, I had such a good answer!?
Anyway, she then said thanks, thats the end. You will hear an automated response regarding your result very shortly, maybe even today, however no feedback is available (I saw this as a definate fail when she said this).
The interview lasted approx. 9 minutes, taking me to 19.10. By 19.45 I got an email saying congratulations you have passed!
I really don’t know, perhaps she licked the brummy accent, although I find this very hard to believe!
Any questions please ask, also she said we will be in touch in 2 to 3 weeks to organise first interview appointment, does anyone know how long a time frame there is between the dates offered for the first interview? Are they scheduled in the near future?
