    Technology Consulting Analyst Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Accenture (Charlotte, NC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    First round was with a principal and it was purely him assessing whether or not I did my homework and how interested I am in the position and the firm. They emailed me the next day informing me that I will have my second round on campus as well. I was a lot less impressed by the second round interviewer. He seemed quite burnt out and the interview was quite awkward. No chemistry at all. The whole process is very rigid: you have your standard behavioral questions and you ask questions about the position/firm in the end. Nothing too surprising. They still haven't gotten back to me about the third round.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interviewer went through my resume and basically asked me questions based on my resume. It asked me to describe what I've done in the past, and the work experiences I've had. Then from my work experiences, he asked me to describe a difficult situation I've run into and tell him the thinking process I went through so solve my problems. He also asked me about some of my computer skills. Honestly, I was a little surprised that I didn't get the offer, but again I'm not the interviewer so I don't know exactly what he was looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question
    • Describe a situation in any of your work experience where you had a problem and how you overcame it.   Answer Question
