    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Accenture in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was conversational and focused on fit/personality. Included one case question, more scenario based versus quick math. First interview was held on campus, second round, candidates were flown to nearby office for interviews. The day included 3 different interviews with senior executives in office.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with two managers. These are behavioral interviews -- basically, asking questions about conflict, leadership, etc. Think about a few good stories you have and then relay them. Also, be prepared to ask lots of questions because there is a lot of time at the end. One interview seemed to like to talk about himself, but the other not so much. Basically, engage your interviewers.

    I think if you get up to this point, you have a very high chance of getting hired.

    Systems Integration Consulting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Three-rounds of interviews. First was on campus, super simple. My second interview was also on campus with a different manager. Also simple, straight forward behavioral interview questions. Third round was at local office (Atlanta) and it lasted half a day. We viewed presentations by other analysts and could ask questions. Discussed benefits, salaries, and general company info and opportunities. There were two interviews this day with managers and senior managers. Again, very simple questions. No coding, no case studies, no technical questions... It was just very easy! Know your resume, be able to communicate your desires/expectations from the company, elaborate (STAR method) on experiences, and be natural! Be professional, but let your personality show too. Accenture culture seems pretty laid-back compared to other consulting firms I've interacted with. Not Google or Facebook laid-back, but as relaxed as a consulting firm can be. Still have to wear a suit to the interview though =) Good luck!

    Interview Questions
    • None. Just Google typical behavioral interview questions. No coding, no case studies, nothing technical.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiated start date (got first choice, pushed date back by five months b/c I needed a break after graduation. They wanted me to start the following week! Umm, no!). Also negotiated location (first choice. Offer initially in Atlanta, moved to Houston, where there are a LOT more projects). Did not attempt salary negotiation, but I wish I had.

    Management Consultant Development Program - Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    I was internally referred by a friend of mine (how most candidates get interview opportunities), and set up two phone interviews. I thought that one would be behavioral, and the other would be a case interview. Instead, they were both case interviews. Accenture interviewers use personal consulting experiences to test your analytical skills and understand your thought process (so I can't guarantee that a different candidate will get a question anything like the ones described below).

    Interview Questions
    • The first case interview question asked how a corporation controlling 5 different businesses could consolidate the businesses. It was very important to ask questions to understand the components/departments of each business in order to reduce redundancies between businesses. It required asking a lot of questions to get more information about the businesses to make a decision.

      The second interview question was about a company that was going to be sold within 18 months, and it's goal was to increase its value before being sold by reducing the cost of technical support. The interviewer asked how this company should do this, and what the implications those decisions would be. Again, it took a lot of questions in order to fully understand the situation, then analyze and propose a recommendation.

    interviewed at Accenture in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Came into my school campus interview for the first round after I applied online on my school's career help websites. First round is very casual and almost a complete conversation with some pointers on my Resume. Went down the entire thing and left with a call for the 2nd round the next day.

    2nd round was typical behavioral questions. Situations of time crunches and teamwork to show you what you should do. It was very nice and welcoming and probably one of the least pressuring interviews I've had.

    Staff Consultant/Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very straightforward. First interview was behavioral, second two were case interviews. I had one straightforward cost-benefit case and one strategy case that was very obscure. I spent 15 minutes just nailing down the basics of the industry and relationships between players.

    All of the Accenture cases that my colleagues and I had were based on real-life projects that each interviewer experienced. Some of the interviewers made a great case out of their project and some were very unclear and unstructured. It varied greatly.
