    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    Last project details and and details about insurance. and claim details and about Quality management The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews.Don't expect to hear back right away and don't panic if you don't get contacted immediately after the interview. It takes time for companies to make final decisions, to put together a job offer package for the winning candidate, and to let the other applicants know if they weren't selected. If a week or so has gone by and you still haven't heard, it's appropriate to follow up with your contact at the company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    They first came to campus where there was a breif interview which they stressed was mainly for us to ask questions and get to know more about the company. Within the next two or so weeks I then got invited for an on site interview. This was fairly relaxed as well. I met with 3 people, 2 of which had a list of fairly normal behavioral questions and the 3rd led a case study. It wasn't super hard, they basically gave you an example client and asked you to design a mock product for their needs.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    7 interviews no avail: HR(1) /Tech (2) /Mgmt (2) /Sr. Mgmt (2) Lacked professionalism in conducting interview. Lacked internal co-ordination between HR and Delivery team. Interviewers saying opposite things during Q&A, were red-flags. None of them said anything good about working at Capgemini or its culture. For a direct question: I got a response that there are many projects and lots of work. They are only focused on staffing the project not on employee, appeared to be more of a staff aug. type. Submitted to end-client without permission before finalizing offer and someone from client location reached me back. People do not matter. Hope they notice and correct.

    Staff Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (Houston, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    After passing a basic phone interview, I interviewed in the Houston office for an SAP staff consultant role. Three different interviews with three different members of staff. Make sure you show up early so you have time to look over the case study! It's not a very traditional case study--they leave it very open ended so you can talk it through with them. Just make sure that you have lots of angles you have considered on the case and lots of questions that you would want to explore further. Overall, I had a great experience. Everyone was friendly and kind to me, and it felt very conversational. Prove that you know some industry terminology, prove that you can interact with people (even difficult ones) well, and prove that you are good at thinking about case studies. There is no "right" answer, they just want to see that you understand basic business principles when thinking about problems. After the interview I was told I would be contacted in 2 weeks, but it really took 4 before they extended an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (Dallas, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through my university's career center and attending an information center the following week to learn more about the company. I was invited for a first-round interview along with about ten others. The first-round interview was very relaxed and sat almost exactly at the thirty minute mark. It was all behavioral-type questions and I was asked if I wanted a technical or functional role within the company, to which I replied functional; the interview subsequently steered itself in an increasingly functional direction. All in all this interview was not particularly difficult or challenging. A few days later I was invited for a second round interview at their office in Irving and it consisted of three 30-minute interviews. Make sure you show up a bit early for this round! I honestly should've showed up a bit earlier than I did, because between talking to your 'buddy' that you are assigned to show you around and meeting some of the other interviewees, you won't have enough time to look over the case study that you're presented with. The interviews were rotational, so I had my case interview first. It was a hypothetical situation in which the CTO of a company is faced with lagging sales due to poor performance on the side of his sales team. You are supposed to ask questions and guide yourself to a solution to this by finding out what's truly wrong and digging deeper into the issue. After a bit of discussion, I was presented with a list of possible solutions and told to select two and defend them. This was the hardest of the three interviews in my opinion, but if you're prepared and willing to ask questions and listen carefully, it won't be all that difficult. You will be rewarded more for listening than you will for responding. My second interview was completely behavioral and when I got to ask questions I got to find out a lot more about company's culture. My interviewer was not local, so it was very interesting to get a traveler's perspective on what the company does. This interview was very relaxed and I never once felt pressured for an answer- it ran a bit over time, and my interviewer and I actually ended up discussing how we like exploring local cultures through cuisine- this caused quite a bit of a ruckus through laughter, oops! My third interview followed the same relaxed nature of my second, with a bit more technicality thrown in. I was not asked anything that challenged my knowledge. The questions were more to gauge what I enjoyed doing in terms of technical tasks and what I was capable of/enjoyed learning. This interview was with a manager of a local project. All in all I felt that my interviews went very well, and I did not hear back from any of my interviewers after following up (who actually does, anyways?). I was told to expect a reply within two weeks, but didn't hear back until I followed up after three weeks. The national recruiter was very prompt with her replies and told me to expect an update before the fourth week had passed, and I received a call the next day informing me that I would be receiving an offer. I received the offer by email two days later and was given two days (a bit rushed, yeah?) to accept it, which I did.

    Interview

    I met a JCP recruiter at my universities career fair where we scheduled an on-campus interview for later that week. The interview was very structured with both behavior and situation based questions. I waited a few weeks before I was contacted to go to a second interview at their DC (where the job would take place). While I was at the DC, I had a chance to go on a tour and be interviewed twice, both with two interviewers and both interviews lasted about 30 minutes. These questions were very similar to the first interview - still highly structured, but we did discuss matters that were not on their interview question list. Overall, it was a great experience. Every employee I met at JCP was extremely welcoming and everyone seemed to genuinely love their job.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of the questions began with, "tell me about a time when you..." most of them related to how I managed conflict, how I lead teams, etc. They wanted to know a lot about my prior class projects as well. The questions didn't seem unexpected to me, they were the typical interview questions you should expect.   Answer Question
