    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by at least two rounds of interviews (cant remember if was two or three). Recruited through the university Career Fair. I was able to choose what location I wanted when I applied and actually got the location that I wanted as opposed to the DC office which is where they were mainly recruiting for.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Accenture (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Extremely fast process! First interview was just a quick screening where I discussed my resume and interests with an Accenture employee. Very informal and had I a really pleasant experience! Invitation for a second round interview for the next day came that night. Second interview occurred the next day, which consisted of STAR/behavioral questions. The interviewers were very friendly and the questions were straight forward. Heard back a few days later.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    I met an Accenture recruiter at a job fair and was extended the opportunity to interview. Within a week, I had my first ("fit") interview. The following week, I had an additional interview another employee. This was a behavioral interview and was pretty straight forward (please note, the first two interviews were conducted via-phone). A couple of weeks later, I was flown to Washington DC. Here I met with current analysts and interviewed by two managers. This was a little difficult as one manager probed my background and questioned my interests. Fortunately, I was able to get by and received an offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Accenture in January 2015.

    Interview

    I experienced a three round interview process with Accenture. the first and second rounds are by phone. Candidates for the third round are brought in for an in person interview with two Executives.

    Interview Questions

    • First round questions are very introductory: "Tell me about your extracurricular activities", "What interests you about working with Accenture", etc.
      Second round questions are behavioral: "Describe a project you had to complete under a very tight deadline", "Tell me about a situation when you built a strong working relationship with a key stake holder", etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Received first interview through on-campus recruiting. First interview consisted of basic questions concerning my resume, past work experiences, skills, etc. After passing this interview, I was invited back for a second interview, somewhat longer than the first (around an hour). This was more of a behavioral interview with questions such as, 'Tell me about a time when you took a leadership position on a team or group'. After passing this interview, I was brought in to the local office in Washington D.C. for a final interview. This interview was the same format as the second, only difference being there were two interviews with two separate, higher level employees. Some others have posted with regards to this final interview that if you make it to this stage you are essentially in unless you screw up in some way, I would like to say that this is NOT THE CASE at all, at least in my experience. Both of my final round interviews went very well, and I seemed to connect well with each of the interviewers. I was told that I would hear back within two to four weeks with a decision. Four weeks later there was no response, and I sent an email to my recruiter inquiring as to what had happened. I was told that I would receive a final decision within a couple weeks. Three weeks later, I received an email saying that I would not be moving forward with the process as, and I quote, " [we] have decided to pursue other candidates whose background is better aligned with the requirements of this role."

    This would have been fine to hear after the first, or even second interview. But by the third interview, no issue had ever been raised in any of the interviews, including the final one, about my 'background'. My past experiences and skills had been discussed with the interviewers at length before the final interview, so in my mind if at that point my 'background' was not enough to complete the job, then I shouldn't have even been invited for the final interview. Overall, up until that point, my experience with the whole organization had been positive, but after the wait for the response, the continued lack of follow up from the recruiting staff, and the supposed reason given for my 'rejection', my experience with Accenture left a very bad impression.

    Interview

    On campus interview, then office visit and interview with multiple managers / sr. managers. Relatively un-intimidating experience. Typical behavioral questions were asked, and mostly the interviewers just wanted to get to know you and see if you would fit in with the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture in October 2014.

    Interview

    There were two rounds of on-campus interviews. The first interview was performed by employees who have a few years of experience and it was mostly talking about myself and my previous experiences (resume-based). The same night I had the first interview, I received a phone call to schedule the second round interview and it happened in the same week. The second round interview was conducted by a higher level consultant who seemed to be at around a manager status in the firm (not an executive). This interview was longer and had more questions regarding specific cases in your past experiences. I was informed I passed both rounds a week later by the campus recruiter and I scheduled a final round office visit a month or two after the interview. The final round had two interview sessions with Accenture executives who had relatively casual interview questions and it seemed that these sessions were more meant for the executives to get to know me more personally. Accenture consultants who are relatively new to the company did a short powerpoint presentation about all of the aspects of Accenture and the HR recruiter presented some basic offer package information without specific numbers.

    Office - presentation followed by 3 back to back interviews; seemed to evaluate interest and fit w/ the realities of the job (e.g. travel)

    Recruiter was helpful throughout process. Most conversations were about my background (skills, behavioral) and discussing job function.

    Systems Integration Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    I started the interviewing process through on-campus recruiting I completed 3 separate rounds. Round 1 was just a conversation with HR personnel on campus. Round 2 was on campus and met with 2 different people to discuss situational based questions (i.e. Tell me about a time you failed). Round 3 was in the Accenture office with three different people. Each conversation was 45min long and they also provided an educational session on what is Accenture, the reporting structure, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the behavioral based questions were not necessarily straightforward - i.e. not just "tell me about a time you failed" but instead "tell me about a time you failed, how you dealt with it, and any repercussions"   Answer Question
