    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed on-site at South SF office for entry-level consulting role in General Practice. Behavioral and case interview over a period of about 2 hours total. I was told I would interview with a manager and a VP at the firm. I arrived about ten minutes early, but was made to wait longer than usual. I never ended up interviewing with either of the two people mentioned. Instead, a different first interviewer came about ten minutes late, and curtly directed me to follow him. He put the case interview on me first, which was not the order I expected. Case wasn't too bad and the interviewer was reasonably responsive during the process, although he played with his smartphone in plain sight while I was working on computations, and could act cold at times during the interview. Was not very friendly. They then put me back in the lobby. I could clearly see the woman VP I was supposed to interview with, but they shifted me to another VP in the company. The other VP made me wait about 20 minutes in the lobby before the next (behavioral) interview. He initially started off nice and friendly, but quickly became condescending and commanding. There was no structure for the interview. He seemed to instead try picking up on various parts of whatever we were talking about and would become combative and insult me. He also asked me where I was from at the start of the interview, even though that's against the law. I started talking about a research project I was doing, and he asked me to explain it. He became extremely cocky and aggressive. He started vehemently attacking parts of my project, even insulting me as ignorant. He commanded me to give a presentation in front of him about my project by drawing slides on his white board. He would frequently cut me off and tell me I had only a few seconds left. He commanded me to tell him what the most major flaw in my project was. He kept telling me my answers were wrong before asserting that something else was my project's fatal flaw, as if he was speaking down to a child. He proceeded to ask me about a recent news event and my thoughts on it. Whenever I brought up a viewpoint and backed it up, he kept cutting me off and told me I was wrong, wrong, wrong. He cut me off multiple times before I stated I would stick with my answer/opinion on the news event. He then gave me a brainteaser and I started to work through it on his whiteboard. As I was doing so, he started to interrupt me and mock me for not knowing the correct number for the population of SF. He asked "Don't you read those signs on the Golden Gate or Bay Bridge while you are driving?" Since he seemed to know, I asked him to offer what the correct population number for SF was. He refused to do so. After finishing he further mocked me and asked how I could be a PS major or be from California, and not know the exact population of SF. He asked "You call yourself a political science major and don't even know the population of San Francisco? Do you not even care?" I stayed silent, but he kept egging me on, saying "No, really, do you not really care?" I said "No, I..." before he cut me off and said "Oh, so you don't care?!" I said that no, that wasn't it, that I simply did not have the number of SF population at that time. After this dressing down, he concluded the interview. Overall, a very, very rude and denigrating experience, and from a VP with over ten years experience with the firm who was very abusive to a college student interviewing at his firm.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Fairly straight forward. The first interview was done on campus. Then they ask you to come to their office and present how you would consult using a case study. You then meet with several interviewers and talk through your decision making process for the case study as well as answer general behavioral interview questions (i.e. Why would you want to do consulting?).

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Capgemini (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    First round Interview was on campus and a 30-minute behavioral interview. Pretty basic behavioral questions, interviewer was very straight-faced and difficult to read. Went over by 20 minutes but interviewer gave no indication of her emotions and overall thought interview was just okay. A little uncomfortable at first, but questions were not difficult to answer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Capgemini (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Encountered Cap at a career fair and then attended their info session at the university. Really showed a lot of interest by asking the recruiters a lot of questions and networking. Also spoke to them through email. Was invited for first round interviews. This was a short 1 on 1 interview. Very comfortable and enjoyable. Really try to understand your personality and if you'll be a fit. Its a behavioral interview. The second interview took place a few weeks later. This was a day with 3 interviews. One of these interviews is a case study about a company wanting to improve sales. The other two were again, interviews to see how you fit. Very little has to do with your qualifications. It has more to do with how you work with others and your leadership and initiative. The turnaround time was the worst part. They said they would get back in 2 weeks but actually took almost 6 weeks. The people you talk to are great and make you feel very comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • If you had to design an "iFan", how would you go about it? If I gave you an unlimited amount of money as an investment, what would you do with it? Tell me about yourself. Why Cap? Why consulting? What differentiates us from competitors? How would you persuade a client to use Capgemini’s services? How do you balance priorities? Why consulting? Resume rundown? What have you done to better yourself? Talk about a time when you went above and beyond. Long term goals.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied through campus career services. A week and a half later I received an invite to interview on campus two weeks from the invite. The campus interview involved a discussion on what Capgemini was and what they had to offer and behavioral questions. Two weeks later I was invited to fly out to an interview on-site, out of state. They flew me out on their dime and put me up in a really nice hotel for the night. The on-site interview was spread across three Capgemini managers in one-on-one session of about 30-40 minutes. The first was a business case and you had give your ideas on how to solve the problem. The second interview was purely behavioral questions. The third was a conversation on your past work experience, your aspirations and where your interests lie. The people and employees I got to meet were very friendly and professional. I received notification of rejection 4 weeks after the on-site interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Capgemini (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 2 H1b's from India in director positions within the company. 2 interviews, one was a case/technical interview that mostly had to do with the system development life cycle and the other was part behavioral and mostly resume talk. The interview started about an hour late but was done in an hour so i barely made it to my flight home. The case interview was SDLC and programming concepts and the second was why you wanted to work, convince them to do a hobby you do and talk about your resume. The interview was relevant and entertaining but sad to see the company exploits cheap labor for leadership positions from India and college students for lower positions. I am glad at-least they paid for my airplane and pay for food and taxi as well unlike sogeti.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. How would you explain the System Development Life Cycle approach in general and what are the difference phases. 2.why is following the SDLC important? 3.What is involved with each phase of SDLC?   Answer Question
