IT Support (Summer Student) Interview

IT Support (Summer Student)
Toronto, ON

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in May 2014.

Interview Details I applied online through official website. About 3 weeks later I received an email for an interview. The interview was conducted by a Manager and a Sr. Analyst. Most questions were scenario based. I was advised on the format of answers they were looking for. I think I did okay considering that my answers were thoughtful and realistic. I was advised to contact the HR a week later to find out if I was selected. I got a call from the HR with an offer. I obviously accepted considering the Firm's reputation and I was very happy to accept the offer.

Interview Question – One of the most difficult questions was "Describe a scenario where you had to convince someone 1-on-1 and how did you do it and what was the outcome"   Answer Question

Consultant, Managerial Design Interview

Consultant, Managerial Design
Toronto, ON

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Deloitte.

Interview Details Contacted by HR recruiter (Internal) on Linkedin. She conducted an HR interview with me by phone- basic questions, descriptions of my work experience, interests and eligibility to work in Canada. 2 weeks later I was contacted to schedule a behavioural interview, which was conducted by 2 managers. I was asked behavioural questions regarding my ability to cope with various situations and approach to consulting. I also asked lots of questions.

Interview Question – Please tell me about your approach to consulting (philosophically)   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was offered another interview (not a position) but felt that the company was a poor fit for me from a lifestyle perspective.
