Associate Software Engineer Interview

Associate Software Engineer

I applied online and interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – I applied online. After hearing back I went through a short phone interview with HR. HR interview was nice and easy, probably just checking for soft skills and getting a better understanding of my background. After that I took a programming assessment/test online. The test itself wasn't too difficult. Some questions were simply worded in a confusing way and incredibly specific. It was about 50 or so multiple choice questions. After passing that, it was planned that I go through some technical interviews. After not hearing back for a while, I tried to contact the recruiter working with me to schedule the interview. It took a while to hear back and when I heard back, apparently the position/project for the position was no longer a thing and that was the end of my attempt at Accenture.

Interview Question – It wasn't difficult, but there was a question where you were supposed to give instructions to navigate an object on a grid. The instructions were incredibly basic, like turn 90 degrees, move up one, move back 2, etc.
Because The answers were written in a simplified way, (90RU290RU4... = 90 right turn, move up two, 90 right turn, move up 4) it was quite difficult to find the right answer among the multiple choices.

Asssciate Software Engineer Interview

Asssciate Software Engineer
Washington, DC

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

Interview Details – Very smooth. I first was e-mailed within a couple hours of submitting my resume online through Taleo and being referred. My phone interview was the next day. I was told to complete a programming assessment and when I passed I was then invited back for a second round at an Accenture sight in the DC/NoVA area. My recruiter was prompt and got back to me the very next business day with my decision.

Interview Question – I wasn't asked any technical questions, but I did make sure that I made it clear that I understood the technical aspect of the job through RDBMS, programming, and understanding concepts. I was told by other interviewee's that they were asked about SQL joins, queries, and difficult Java questions and were asked to write code on the spot.   Answer Question
