Any experience, tips or insights for a final round partner interview with Monitor Deloitte Australia (or Monitor Deloitte generally)?

Anonymous asked on Oct 19, 2017 - 5 answers

Hi everyone,

I made it in the final round with Monitor Deloitte Australia, and was wondering if someone has some experience and insights in what I can expect from a partner interview with Monitor Deloitte´s Strategy & Operation practice. I would be thankful for any information about the interview itself and practice/preparetion tips.

Furthermore, if someone would like to practice with me partner interviews, it would be a pleasure for me to connect with you.

Looking forward to your responses.

Cheers,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Happy to share insights on how to best prepare for Monitor Deloitte in Australia as i had direct experience with Sydney & Adelaide offices.
In terms of structure of final round with Partner - this is not fundamentally different from last step you have gone through. You can expect either:
- 15mins more in-depth interview and discussion regarding your technical and motivational fit for the role and team. This will be with a Partner from the service line of S&O + 30 mins Operations case (optional)
- or if you haven't taken a written case in the previous steps and they anticipated you that final is going to be like this, a written case with approx 15 slides - 60 min + discussion with Partner fit + solution of the case

Feel free to reach out if you have further questions or would like to practise,
Best regards
Ric

Hi Anonymous,

I helped one candidate to receive an offer from Monitor UK some time ago and he did a group exercise in its final; below you can find a quick sum up of what you can expect in the last round group exercise (please also take into account that the process may be different in different geographies):

  • Candidates get divided in different groups
  • You get 10 minutes to prepare your points and discuss with teammates
  • You will discuss the case for 20 minutes in front of the interviewers
  • You get Q&A from interviewers

Compared to a one-to-one interview, in a group interview you want to be able to interact with others, without sounding neither too dominant (meaning arrogant defending you points or not listening to others) nor too quiet. If you can take the leader role (eg, trying to have everyone participating and moving on the conversation) that’s great, otherwise it would be useful to try to help the natural leader to have everyone involved and have the team succeeding in delivering the expected outcome. You can also confront opinions you do not agree with during the initial discussion, so far that you do that in a constructive way.

Hope this helps,

Francesco

Hello!

I work at Deloitte Brazil nowadays.

Some tips about what the company wants:

-Respect to hierarchy;

-Someone calm and smart;

-Someone that is not a "dreamer" (reality);

-Clear communication;

-Someone that is not leaving the job next month.

Hi Anonymous A,

thank you for asking your question on our Consulting Q&A!

Another user asked about the Monitor Deloitte interview process before, as well.

  • The interview starts with a company presentation, where the candidates can ask first questions they have about Deloitte.
  • This is followed by three rounds of interviews: one personal fit interview and two case interviews. During the case interview, you get a written case study and have 30 minutes time to prepare before you discuss the case for about 45 minutes with a consultant from Deloitte. This is your chance to show them not only your analytical skills, but also your ability to deal with numbers and to develop solutions for complex issues.
  • If you make it to the next, final round of the interview, another case interview will follow. For that you have one hour preparation time after which you will have to present your results within a group presentation. The interviewers will watch the process of the discussion and how you participate in it. Then you will get the chance to convince a Deloitte partner or director in a personal interview and hopefully by the end you will get a job offer from Deloitte.

Please check out the following link for the full Q&A, if you haven't already:

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to ask on our Q&A!

I hope this helps and wish you the best of luck for your interview! :)
