    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online via their website and got a response back via email after about a week. Then I had a phone interview less than a week later. I went about the phone interview in the wrong way. It is 75% behavioral and 25% technical (case study). Don't make the same mistakes that I did -- establish a relationship with your interviewer, know his or her name, make sure to have 3-4 relevant and poignant vignettes for the standard behavioral competency questions. I could tell I goofed right off the bat and it was impossible to turn it around after that even though my case study skills and latter behavioral interview were solid. The case itself was easy and non-quantitative in nature. The interviewer seemed like he really didn't want to be doing the interview, and really emphasized on time. He also seemed pretty cold and even a little arrogant.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture (Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Online application form involving the usual previous education and work details and a mini essay question about why Accenture and about previous extra-curriculars. First round interview was competency based with a manager. Second round consisted of 3 interviews- case study, senior manager interview and a managing director interview. Lots of competency based questions, motivational and CV based questions. Thought they were all pretty tough but very straight forward. Some of the competency based Qs were quite specific, looking for certain situations which were not easy to think of on the spot. Overall a great experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Filled out the online application, heard back within the week inviting me to a telephone interview.

    Telephone interview was split into three parts: questions about Accenture and why I wanted to work for them, competency-based questions ("describe a situation when...") and a short case study at the end. Was called the next day to invite me to an assessment centre.

    Assessment centre was only a morning (approximately 9.00am-12.45pm). There were a few un-assessed parts: manager presentation and Q&A with a current analyst, and two assessed parts: group exercise (split into groups to discuss solutions Accenture can offer for companies merging) and a 1-on-1 interview (part of this followed on from the solutions in the morning, the other part was asking about my understanding of and interest in Accenture).

    They said they will get back to us in 10-15 working days, so still waiting to hear on the outcome of my application.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online after an employee referral and was contacted about 2 weeks later to set up a first round phone interview. There were three components to the interview. There were motivational/knowledge-based questions (Why do you want to work for Accenture? Who are some of Accenture's competitors?), behavioral questions (Tell me about a time when you displayed leadership qualities. Tell me about a time when you faced uncertainty and achieved greatness.), and a case study.

    Interview Questions

    • In the case study, the interviewer specifically stated what the main problem was that the company was facing. When she asked me to list three problems, I thought that I was supposed to think out-of-the-box and draw conclusions based on all of the information already presented, so I intentionally avoided reiterating the problem that she had stated first. Do not do what I did! My interviewer was clearly frustrated and I knew from that moment that I had no chance of progressing to the next round. Repeat what your interviewer says word for word and do not try to be creative with your answers. It is not what they are looking for. Best of luck!   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Poor process and i feel it is hard to see how HR can make decisions based on the assessments. Group assessments ran with no indication as to how you have been doing and absolutely zero feedback facilities. impossible to know whether you were strong in certain areas or any developmental areas.

    Interview Questions

    • What sort of technological training outside that of I was given a 'technical' case study, asked to read and then make recommendations. The case study was simple and more business focused rather than 'technical'.
      However, I had contacted the recruiter in advance asking about the format of the interview and was not given a response despite trying several times.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in November 2013.

    Interview

    Filled in online application form and was contacted a couple of weeks later for a telephone interview. Half an hour long interview covering competency question, knowledge of Accenture and a case study. I feel that I ultimately fell down on my lack of preparation for my case study and not having prepared enough for competency questions.

    Interview Questions

    • After naming IBM and Capgemini as Accenture's main competitors in technology I was pushed for even more, despite having named other companies already.
      Case study asked me to help a company who was having trouble integrating its systems but lacked funds to invest in a specific platform.
