I have just completed the application process at deloitte and to my complete relief I have been made an offer. I found this web site very useful throughout the process so I thought I would provide feedback.
While this website is very useful take everything with a pinch of salt. When I was reading around more often than not it would worry me more as it seems some people have had some difficult experiences. Mine however was not too bad.
The main thing to concern yourself with in the first interview is make sure you go over your competencies and obviously as everyone one states make sure you do 2 for each. This takes roughly an hour and a half and that was it. My interviewer was a very nive bloke and this was simple.
The assessment centre is when I started to worry. It’s a good idea to complete the online civil service e tray. This will not emotely help you with doing the question as they are completeley different and dont be put off by the siz of the articles as the deloitte one is not half as long. It is however useful just fo haveing an idea of the way its formatted so you have no suprises. I actually ran out of time in my etray and missed the last 3 questions which was incredibly frustrating but i passed and that is all that counts.
The partner interview again was a worry but this turned out to be very relaxed.We did some competencies and mainly talked about my experiences. No real commercial awareness whoch suprised me. This area is luck however because it does all depend on what partner you get. If they are interested just ignore that and answer there questions.
SOme people on here have posted some real horror stories and have had problematice experiences. However apart from the stress of waiting to hear if I got an offer the process while being very long is not that stressful.
