It has been a few days since my interview at Deloitte. First I should start off by saying that I only interviewed with Deloitte on Friday even though I was supposed to interview with PwC as well. Ultimately, the timing did not work out for both interviews, so I had to reschedule Pwc as I had already scheduled Deloitte’s interview first. Now I have to fly to Chicago this week to interview with PwC. This is not exactly what I wanted to do, so I have some very mixed feelings. As for Deloitte, it did not go as well as expected. First of all, I (and many others) thought that we would be getting dinner on Thursday night, but it was just a reception. Now for the actual interview, the first interview was average, neither great nor terrible. I was hoping to bank it on the second interview because my first one was not spectacular. However, as I was directed into the room, I noticed noone was there. Apparently, my interviewer got caught up in family issues, so he was unable to come to the interviewers. Therefore, I had a phone interview with another director. This was very unfortunate because I feel that a phone interview would put me at a severe disadvantage compared to a person to person interview. The recruiter told me and the other interviewee that a phone interview should make no difference, but I didn’t buy it. Not being face to face with the interviewer cuts out a lot of the impression that you can make. Needless to say, I was pretty upset at the situation, but there was nothing I could do about it. I am feeling that it is pretty unlikely that I will receive the offer, unfortunately. Hopefully, the PwC interview goes a lot better.
