Time lag at Deloitte

 
#1 Time lag at Deloitte

Have been to three interviews for a senior consultant position with Deloitte. The first two were conducted by senior consultants, while in the last one I was interviewed by a manager. All went well, but three weeks have gone by, since the last interview and no answer so far. I've called once but was told no information was available. Any valid suggestions / comments? Thanks.

Have you moved house/changed phone numbers without informing them?

The same thing had happened to me last year. Some Deloitte Consulting offices make recruiting decisions by getting all the partners together in the same room. However, with the amount of travelling they do, scheduling this meeting can be a real nightmare. I received my job offer 4 weeks after my interview with the partner!!

In the mean time, I suggest you keep trying to contact HR. Best of luck!

Thanks James!

Guess what..they called me today asking for another interview. This time with a partner.

This rises another question: Is this it? Doest this mean I'll get an offer, or is this merely another step?

Again your invaluable thoughts on this will be much appreciated.

A partner interview means that you are almost in, but not quite. Deloitte Consuting is very concerned about "fit". That is what the partner interview is usually about. Rather than giving you a case or trying to grill you on your resume, it will most probably just be a relaxed conversation about your interests outside of work/study. They are trying to get a feel for you as a person, and assess whether you will gel with the collegial culture.

My advice to you is simply relax and enjoy yourself. My interview veered off into strange directions like looking at the performances of sporting teams I supported and which cars I thought were really cool. Again this had to do my interests, so don't worry if you're not a petrolhead!

The partner did ask me about what I considered my greatest achievement. If possible try to stay clear of academic scholarships and the like. Use something that demonstrates a rounded personality.

That's about it. Be aware that this was my experience. Your partner may decide to try a completely different approach. If HR isn't sick of you yet, you could try to ask them for details about the type of interview. Good luck
