    So they don't do ANY strategy?

    I have an AC with them coming up but not entirely sure how to handle an "operations" case study if that's what they'll ask. Only really ever prep'd for strategy-type case studies.
    There is SOME but more focused on implementation. Have you read their case studies online... will probably give you a better picture of what they do.

    I would ask about interview format/what the assessment involves if you are unsure.

    If you're not from a Sciencey background, can you confirm that the Maths test didn't have any mechanics in it?
    It has no mechanics, apart from maybe some questions involving knowing the formula for watts iirc. Maths is easy, its just arithmetic. The reasoning/problem solving is quite tricky, one involved a map of 27 points and and shortest distance from two points.

    (I did the paper version onsite though so online may be easier)

    Online is not necessary easier, because if you did online, you will have to redo the tests during your Assessment day anyway

    Michael did you have a telephone interview with them first?
    Could you (or anyone) shed some light as to what to expect?!
    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Think the e-mail said you will hear back on Jan 19th
    On my email it says:

    "Upon completion of the online tests we will review your test scores along with a further screen of your application, and we will be in touch with you via email by Friday 16th January 2015 to let you know the outcome of your application"

    Interviews apparently will start on the 22nd, what a weird policy...

    Are you guys waiting to hear back from them to start the firm-focused part of your interview preparation, or are you working on it now as if you knew that you already passed their screening, hoping that this will actually be the case?

    Got an "We have therefore temporarily placed your application on hold " e-mail from Deloitte... Incredibly frustrating. The chronological processing of candidates is so annoying. Can't be helped though. They find difficulty processing applications as it is, imagine them trying to process all applications and THEN making a decision on who the strongest are so they can interview them first. That would be more optimal in terms of the quality of their intake but I guess logistically it's not.
