I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2014.

Interview Details – 3 interviews- brief phone call, hour long phone call, 3-hour video conference interview. first phone call was easy about my resume. second was a behavioral interview (recall a time you were challenged, you foresaw a problem, etc-- they ask you to elaborate on everything you say and will ask more questions like "and how did that make you feel"). 3rd interview was over video (supposed to be in office but they don't pay for flights) with 4 different people. know info about accenture and about the position- everyone asked what the company does and what you know about the role you're applying for. be attentive and ask relevant questions. overall everyone was very friendly and easy to talk to

Management Consulting Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in October 2013.

Interview Details – Two rounds of interviews, two interviewers per round. One hour for each interviewer who spent 30 minutes discussing my resume and the other 30 minutes on a case study. One was local the other was at HQ.

Interviewers are mostly Senior Managers in first round and Managing Director's in the second. Be sure to understand Accenture's corporate culture and what you're interviewing for.

Interview Question – Why do you want to do consulting?

Be prepared to answer this question and make sure you can back it up! Be honest.

Management Consultant Interview

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – I was first asked to interview after a resume screening. I then had a on-campus interview. It was 1 hour of interview, back-to-back 30 minute cases, with two different interviewers. Both interviews were structured around a case, with 1-2 standard behavioral questions thrown in there. The interviewers were long-term employees of Accenture.

Interview Question – Cases were not math heavy, but some basic arithmetic was necessary. One of the cases discussed a turnover ratio and methods of reducing the turnover ratio. I struggled with this because I wasn't fully sure how the ratio worked, and that really hurt my chances of moving towards the next round. Both cases were standard though, and they're looking to see how you think and interact with the interviewer. The cases for the interview were the interviewers' own cases from their clients, with details altered.   Answer Question

Entry Level Management Consulting Development Program Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Detroit, MI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied on Accenture's website (did not have a referral). I was contacted the following day by an Accenture recruiter and we arranged a first round intro interview for later in the week. I was then invited to participate in back to back case study interviews (each lasted about an hour) and were conducted over the phone. I was then invited to an in-person interview at an Accenture office, not the one I was interviewing for. The first interview of the day was a case interview and the second was a confirming interview to see if I was a match for the company. They offered me the position 2 days later.

Interview Question – The first case interview was analytical. It was basic math but the correct questions needed to be asked by me in order to come up with the correct revenue - estimate. Another case dealt with a domestic company looking to expand globally. You should be up to date on current economic news. The final case interview was less about problem solving and more about how you would handle difficult team environments and difficult clients. The confirming interview more of a laid back conversation with basic behavioral questions mixed in to help drive the conversation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer was firm and fair.

Management Consulting Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – Applied for the entry-level position in October 2013, contacted by a recruiter in January 2014. After a week of email communication, I had two case study phone interviews. The following week I was contacted (via telephone) for a final interview to be held two weeks later. The final interview consisted of a one hour breakfast/introduction with current analysts followed by one case study ~45 mins and a behavioral interview. Although I was not extended an offer, I had a very positive experience with most of the Accenture employees. HR was particularly helpful and professional.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you were part of a team.   Answer Question
