How long does it take to schedule final round interviews for Deloitte Digital?

John

I was referred by a friend to Deloitte Digital (DB&S group) as an experienced hire. I made final round, but the recruiter still hasn't scheduled my final day of interviews yet. The dates of correspondence are below:

- Referred in the beginning of March

- Informal phone calls with 2 other DD people in mid-march and mid-April

- HR Phone Screen on 3/30

- Phone Interview on 4/18

- HR Recruiter emailed me 4/24 saying they wanted to bring me in for final round.

2 things that impacted timing so far were my honeymoon (3/14-3/27) which the recruiter was happy to work around. Also, the consultant I had the phone interview with was on PTO the week after our interview, so the feedback to HR was delayed a week.

I have been checking in about once every 10 days or so, apparently they had a rescruturing two weeks ago, and the recruiter said they should have details of my interview by last Tuesday(5/16) but I still haven't heard anything back yet. I'm getting a little nervous at this point. Any advice?

Hi John,

having finals after 3-4 weeks from the previous round is actually pretty normal if you don’t have another offer to leverage; I guess they are probably waiting for the availabilities of all the partners to be aligned with the application process of the candidates for the final round. I would recommend you two things to try to speed up the process:

  1. If you have not done so already, you can call the recruiter and ask why the interview has not been scheduled yet. They will probably apologize and suggest a new day for the confirmation of the interview.
  2. If feasible, try to start the process with other consulting firms, even if Deloitte would still be your preferred option between all the companies; so far that you get an invitation for another interview (even better, an offer), you would have more leverage to speed up the process.

Best,

Francesco

Hi John,

Sometimes between 1-3 months, depending on demand. Sometimes they are waiting because they don't have a client project to put you on to, especially since you are an experienced hire. Don't worry, if you passed other stages, you will get your final round. Big consulting firms are just very demand driven, so this has nothing to do with your ability etc.

In meantime - get referral for others, so you have a choice and a bargaining chip to negotiate. I can try to refer you for Accenture.
