Deloitte HireVue interview questions and strategy


A few years ago Deloitte changed their hiring procedures to include something called a “HireVue interview”.

The purpose of these video or one-way interviews is to save everyone time.  You don’t have to drive or fly in for an in-person interview when the Deloitte hiring manager has already made up their mind on another applicant.  And the hiring manager doesn’t have to sit through an interview with someone that clearly isn’t interested or appropriate for the job.

So it’s a win-win right?  

Sort of.  

HireVue interviews can be very stressful for applicants since there is no live interviewer asking questions. Many applicants have told us this gives them anxiety since there is no way to know if your answers were solid or could be improved, which snowballs into a bad interview.

You can gain some confidence before your interview by practicing for Deloitte’s HireVue interview on a platform like Voomer, where you can practice on Deloitte sample questions and get instant, AI-powered feedback on your answers.

What happens during Deloitte’s HireVue interview?

In a HireVue interview, you’ll record yourself answering questions.

Those questions might be shown to you as a couple of lines of text or they might be displayed as a pre-recorded video by someone at Deloitte asking you that question.

Then, you’ll get around 1 minute to prepare your answer and around 3 minutes to answer.

The number of questions varies, so be ready to answer anything from 2 to 5 questions.  

You can answer on your cell phone, laptop, or desktop computer – as long as it has a camera.  However, I strongly recommend using a laptop or desktop.

Deloitte’s HireVue interview specifics

After receiving the link to your Deloitte HireVue interview, you’ll typically have to complete the interview within 72 hours.

Deloitte is a professional services firm, so the vast majority of questions are going to be related to that business and your attitude answering those questions should be one of a person who understands and wants to grow in that business.

We can also take a look at Deloitte’s values, and it’s pretty clear what they are interested in:

  • Integrity
  • Outstanding value to markets & clients
  • Commitment to each other
  • Strength from cultural diversity

So make sure you care about giving Deloitte clients great value, have an open mind that values diversity and inclusion, that you value teamwork, and – last but not least – have strong work ethics and integrity.

How to prepare for Deloitte’s HireVue

Start with what you can control.

Start your interview in a place that is quiet – away from kids, pets, lawnmowers, etc. Not only will the person viewing your video have a hard time understanding you, loud noises right when you are about to answer a question might sap your confidence.

Even though you might be at home, dress as if you were at an in-person interview. People viewing your answers appreciate the professionalism of someone that took the time to think about this issue and record using appropriate clothing.

Lighting is absolutely key. If you record in an environment with low light, you’ll come across as a blurry, barely recognizable mess on video – which does not help your chances of getting hired.  Open your curtains to let in lots of natural light or turn on lights to brighten up the environment.  When it comes to lighting, more is always better – as long as the lights aren’t pointed at your camera!

Use the STAR method to organize your answers into easy-to-understand snippets that make the hiring manager’s life simple!

Last but not least – PRACTICE! HireVue interviews can be extremely stressful. The only way to gain confidence in these interviews is by getting used to them and understanding how to best answer the questions.

Voomer is a great way to do all that since you can practice on sample Deloitte HireVue interview questions and get instant AI-powered feedback on your answers so you can land that job!
