IT Analyst - Federal Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture.
Interview Details – I was shortly contacted by HR after I applied online requesting a phone interview for later that week. The phone interview was a typical screening which just went over my resume and asked for some more details. Since I applied for a federal consulting position, I had to complete a background prescreen before my in person interview could be scheduled (consisted of drug use, travel, police record, financial record etc.). Once cleared I came in and had two 1 on 1 interviews. The first was a basic technical interview and second was personality.
Interview Question – No difficult questions, interviewer for personality interview left a lot of time for me to ask questions. Answer Question

Entry Level IT Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in July 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted via email about 2 weeks later. They wanted to schedule a time to talk about the position more with me over the phone. Spoke on the phone the next week briefly - the woman was just going over what the position would be like, etc. After that I scheduled an interview day which was about 3 weeks after that. Had 2 interviews back to back, the first was more technical, asking about projects and software I've worked with. Second one was with a higher-up and was really informal. We just talked about Accenture and working there.
Interview Question – Most technical questions were pretty straightforward. For example, describe the software development lifecycle and how you used it in the past to create software. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I got an offer via phone and then got the written offer packet a week later. I was offered a high salary and didn't feel the need to negotiate.

IT Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Accenture in June 2012.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter within a week of applying to their position online. They asked me general background, experience and personality questions and discussed the next steps in the process: 3 more phone interviews -- a skill one, a behavioral one, and a web conference.
The skills interview was scheduled very quickly after the initial interview, however, it was on a late Monday and I had a bad feeling about it, because generally Mondays are stressful and I didn't want to be interviewed after someone had a bad day. I had good reason to be worried. The person who called me for the skill interview had not even looked at my resume (he was surprised that I had a certification in a field that they were interviewing me for and it was the basis for the interview itself). So naturally, he didn't ask me any questions about my 3 year experience in this area. Instead, he shot 3 quick scenario questions at me, to which I replied trying to give him real-life examples that I've had that closely resembled his scenario. He didn't like my answers and kept asking me to paraphrase them, so they fit whatever answer sheet he seems to have printed. He didn't seem to be a good subject matter expert, either, because he kept confusing key terminology and it seemed that he had printed questions/answers from somewhere and was trying to get an answer that is exactly as it appeared in front of him. We ended with me asking him a couple of questions, but seeing his abrupt and one-word answers, I got the feeling that he will not be recommending that I get hired, anyway, so I left it at that.
Accenture is a good company, but it would be nice that the people who conduct interviews at least read the applicants resume or be interested in their experience. I don't think I will be getting an offer from them, but am pursuing other endeavors.
