All the interviews are the same -

I interviewed for associate as an experienced hire but I can tell you that it will be a similar process, just inquiring about different things. For example as a SC you need to have your consulting skills down 100%, be able to start to lead workstreams, problem solve in a creative way, and give direction to associates. Be very familiar with the type of project work you will be doing, and what you have previously done. The partners/directors will want to dig a bit deeper into subject matter than their lower counterparts. Those are mainly behavioral interviews.

I think you’re right, K5

Obviously Deloitte is a bit more exclusive so there’s is probably more difficult! But the other Big 4? Same sh*t

My interviews are not that structured. I am looking for evidence of good experience and maturity

I was offended as it came across as judging my stress level and availability based on a service I received years ago. Did I get unreasonably upset?
