Online assessment, phone interview, assessment centre, partner interview.
Graduate, Melbourne
Group interviews and one on ones.
Graduate, Canberra
I believe there were 3 online assessments when I applied, however, I progressed through the Development Day Program which was a 2 day intensive program, through to the Vacation Program for 6-8 weeks and 2 final interviews for a position as a Graduate.
Graduate, Melbourne
I had an online application, an online test (gamified), a phone interview, the assessment centre, a case study (with presentation and interview follow up) and a partner interview.
Graduate, Melbourne
Started with an online aptitude test, followed by a phone interview, assessment center and one on one interview, and finally a partner interview. Was fairly standard as far as grad recruitment processes go.
Graduate, Melbourne
Online Test Assessment Centre - group work Director/ manager interview Partner interview
Graduate, Sydney
They were challenging and a little competitive, but the most of the other candidates were easy to work with.
Graduate, Melbourne
My personal experience was different because I was referred by someone who already worked there. I had a phone and face to face interview.
Graduate, Sydney
all elements of the interview process and assessments were fun
Graduate, Brisbane
Complex and long, very impersonal until the very last interview. Lots of tests.
Graduate, Melbourne
The interviewers were really good at making sure I was able to relax and show who I really was in the interview, instead of being a nervous wreck
Graduate, Perth
Application online follow by computer assessment phone interview with HR to get to know you better and if the role is suitable A/C with individual and group work then 1 on 1 with a director from the department final interview with 2 directors
Graduate, Sydney
Online initial assessment, quick phone conversation with HR, group assessment stage (I skipped this as I applied late and had a referral), and a case study/partner interview.
Graduate, Melbourne
First round psychological assessment, then group interview, then Manager interview, then Partner interview
Graduate, Sydney
Complex, interesting, problem solving. A number of rounds (Assessment Centre, Partner interviews, case studies, phone interviews, online tests etc.)
Graduate, Melbourne
I got a graduate position through a summer vacationer position. The process for the summer vacationer position was: online application, online testing, phone interview, assessment centre, case study and partner interview.
Graduate, Melbourne
Unlike other graduate interviews/assessment centres I had in looking to secure a grad job, I felt that the interview process made me feel comfortable and confident to do my best without making us complete childish activities.
Graduate, Melbourne
In 2017 the process was a logical/behavioral assessment, its very unique and ahead of other companies (its online and interactive). After that was a quick phone interview, then an assessment centre which consisted of a problem which you worked in teams and then a solo interview (this has changed in 2018, so I’ve heard). After that I had an interview with the partner for the department I applied for and if they feel like another interview you might have another one with the director (I did, but many other people the partner interview was the last stage).
Graduate, Brisbane
Long process: online application, phone interview, group interview with one-on-one manager interview, partner interview.
Graduate, Sydney
The interview process and assessments were expected. The difficulty was also expected given the competitive nature of consulting.
Graduate, Sydney
The interview process was relaxed and friendly. All the interviewers made me feel comfortable and I was able to answer questions at ease.
Graduate, Perth
Offer after internship

Very streamlined, and there were enough stages in the recruitment process to show both strengths and weaknesses.

Good online test Interesting/Engaging assessment center Great interview with partner/case study
Graduate, Sydney
there were a number of interviews. Each were quite good though as they weren't overly professional which helped me to calm myself.
Graduate, Canberra
I did a placement with Monash University so I did not go through the formal interview process and assessment centres. For my internship I interviewed with an HR representative and then I had conversations with a partner about continuing as a casual over the Summer. I then got the call for my offer in the following April (2017), ahead of starting in March 2018.

Graduate, Melbourne
Something along the lines of: - Tell me about a time where you had to change your approach to a problem halfway through, how did you handle this? - What attracted you to this company, to this role, to this area etc. Throughout the interview process I was constantly given the opportunity to ask questions about the culture, workplace and to figure out if the firm was a good fit for me. My company was keen to make sure that I wanted to work there, as well as figuring out if I was a good fit from their point of view.

Mostly about my interests A bit about my choice of Deloitte
Graduate, Sydney
They asked me questions mostly about myself and what I do. There were questions about what I understand about the company and Team I was applying to, but they are more focused on finding out about who you are and how you work.
Graduate, Canberra
For my internship I interviewed with an HR representative and we chatted pretty casually from what I remember. She just asked where I was from, about my job experience in retail, and 1 example of when I made a mistake and how I corrected it.

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?

Bring your personality in.
Graduate, Sydney
Be honest about yourself. Let the interview know what support you need from work and what you can offer.
Graduate, Sydney
Know what you are applying for. Don't go in there with no idea what you want from Deloitte and the role.
Graduate, Melbourne
Have an understanding and an opinion of what’s currently happening in the world in regards to whatever industry you're going to be involved in.
Graduate, Canberra
Do you research about recent engagements Deloitte has engaged.
Graduate, Melbourne
Always tailor your cover letter to the firm your applying for, at least 1 paragraph of your cover letter should be used to talk about their values and culture and how you can align to that.
Graduate, Brisbane
Be prepared to work with people, the assessment center is very heavy on teamwork.
Graduate, Melbourne
Have a lot of practice by thinking about your answers to the standard interview questions, that can be found online. Practice your answers in front of a mirror and finally in front of people. Get a few people (for example friends/ family) to interview you.
Graduate, Sydney
Don't over prepare your answers or overstate your experience. If you don't know the answer to a question say that. Don't say what you think we want to hear, we will look for depth and substance within our conversations.
Graduate, Melbourne
Know about the company's values and have a good answer prepared for why you want to work there. Need something to make you stand out and they are really looking for good communication skills.
Graduate, Sydney
be a team player, willing to work with others and do your research on the company
Graduate, Brisbane
Study for the assessment centre and case studies. Do the work and then be yourself. Make sure you're assessing whether Deloitte is a right fit for you as well. it's not just about them assessing you. You will do well if you are genuine about why you want to be there and have realistic expectations.
Graduate, Melbourne
Practise answering interview questions so that in the interview they come out really clearly and naturally. Make sure you can hold a conversation, most of the interview is just chatting, and this is your opportunity to show that you have good communication skills and allows the interviewer to see who you really are
Graduate, Perth
be yourself try to apply your daily experience into interview questions if no relevant work experience
Graduate, Sydney
Talk about what you are passionate about. Do some industry research so you are prepared to discuss an emerging technology, or something else interesting.
Graduate, Melbourne
Extracurricular activities and social engagement examples are essential
Graduate, Sydney
Research online, Whirlpool forums, Deloitte website, friends, family, university.
Graduate, Melbourne
Think about what area you want to be a part of and tailor your application for that area. There's lots of different areas and the descriptions online can be confusing. I think the best way to get a feel for the company and work out what area you want to be a part of is to speak to people about what the different areas involve and how they find working at Deloitte. A summer vacationer position is great to get a feel for the company culture without having to commit to a graduate position.
Graduate, Melbourne
Know EXACTLY what Deloitte does specific to the department you are applying for. Prepare the basic questions such as strengths and weaknesses but most importantly just be normal. Don’t have set scripted answers, be fluid, have a NORMAL conversation with them. All 3 interviews the people were nice, down to earth and just wanted to have a chat about why you wanted to be at Deloitte.
Graduate, Brisbane
Be honest, be confident, know the company you are applying for: their projects, their culture, their publications, their clients.
Graduate, Sydney
Have relevant experience and really show why you want to be here
Graduate, Sydney
Use lots of examples
Graduate, Sydney
It would be nice to read about the company and more importantly about the business unit to demonstrate passion for the role that they are applying to.
Graduate, Perth
Be yourself, show your passions and don't be afraid to ask questions and speak your mind.
Graduate, Melbourne
Apply at start of week because life gets in way later in week - gave strict deadlines to complete assessments etc.
Graduate, Canberra
Choose something your interested in and be yourself in the interview.
Graduate, Sydney
Do you research as it will give you a better understanding of what They expect of you. First impressions matter but also show them who you are as that will help them to better understand you. A lot of reading is always helpful but also practising in the mirror your speaking is not a bad idea.
Graduate, Canberra
Be very active about it. Research everything you can about Deloitte before showing up. In your interviews or letter, talk about our leadership (Cindy Hook) or the community engagements we have. It is a great way to show you are committed to firm values already.
Graduate, Melbourne
Have locked down why you want to work for Deloitte, why you applied to the business unit you are applying, what skills and experiences you bring to be a candidate of choice.
Graduate, Sydney
Have a genuine passion for the area you are applying to work in because partners seek passionate enthusiastic individuals that bring their own personality to work.
Graduate, Melbourne
Put in the time and the effort into original applications as they are very black and white - when you get to the stage of a phone call or a face-to-face interview, it is much easier to prove yourself.
Graduate, Melbourne
