Gainesville, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Accenture in October 2013.

Interview Details – Interview was more like a conversation. No technical questions, mostly just chatting about who I am and why I would want to work for Accenture. Very open-ended interviewing style so come prepared with some projects and stories that highlight your accomplishments.

Interview Details – While the people are friendly, their cases are extremely pre-defined, as any other legitimate analyses or conclusions from the case still seem to be marked as incorrect. There is a much stronger focus on the case over the behavioral questions. They asked some questions regarding resume items, but most of the time was on the case.

Interview Question – Case regarding Department of Energy grants.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – They had two case interviews back to back. The cases were one hour each. The whole process was very organized. It was a college recruitment interview, so they were interviewing in rounds of about 10 people. Each candidate had a 1:1 interview and then swapped for the second case. Everyone was incredibly nice and helpful, but it's an intense process.

Interview Question – It's a business case, so if you know the process you should generally be ok.   Answer Question
