It's pretty much standard stuff for most large organizations for an experienced position.

Interview Question – They were not hard, as long as you really know your stuff.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Calls and Emails with Partner.
Any changes/requests require days of waiting to get a response. And I was not successful at getting anything more.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Toronto, ON

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Deloitte in September 2012.

Interview Details First round - on campus: half behavioral and half case-interview. Behavioral was very standard: why Deloitte, why consulting, walk-through resume, strengths & weaknesses, challenges encountered when working in a team, solving a conflict, etc. Case interviews are mostly interviewer-led.

Interview Question – 2 cases - both about cost-cutting and math focused. No time for setting a framework since the time limit is about 15 mins. Have to give an estimation of the actual figure of cost saved.   View Answer

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Kingston, ON

The process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2010.

Interview Details There were 2 rounds - behavioral and a case interview. The behavioral was 1 hour and went all over the place with regards to experiences. Seemed to be a checklist that they went through to make sure you had all the experiences that they were looking for.
The case interview was quite straightforward with no business analysis and is similar to the sample cases they have on their website.
Focusing on the people - process - technology angle is all thats needed to do the case.
There is some number crunching needed but not too much and no pressure from the interviewer either

Interview Question – Time when you had to work with a difficult team member?   Answer Question
