I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in October 2013.

Interview Details – There was three interviews. They were all behavioral interviews. Only one of the interviews was in their office. They pushed that they had a good work/life balance, however, interviewers didn't seem to share those same opinions. Most of the people that I met were fairly relaxed, and some seemed more interested in me than others.

Interview Question – It was fairly casual overall. I didn't find that there was one very tough or unexpected question. I think I was caught of guard by some the people's attitudes while interviewing. They wanted to have an interesting discussion instead of a question/answer type interview.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in January 2009.

Interview Details – I went through 2 sets of interviews and they quite standard. Everybody was up front and honest about what to expect. The salary was lower than expected but we were in a recession at the time so I took it. The benefits were good though.

Negotiation Details – There really was none and the salary was the salary and that was that.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – A current employee passed my resume to a recruiter and was contacted to discuss my background, qualifications, etc. I was contacted a second time by the same recruiter to discuss an opportunity and the workforce (Enterprise) for which I was being considered for. When told I was interested in the opportunity, I was invited for an in-person interview with the hiring manager and the Sr Manager. I was asked situation questions by the hiring manager and mostly background, qualification questions by the Sr Manager.

Interview Question – Tell me a time when...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in November 2010.

Interview Details – Was a very casual interview process. Had I think 3 phone interviews that you weren't too bad, then got flown out to my location of choice (New York, Chicago, Denver) and did a group information session followed by rotating personal interviews. Everyone was pretty nice, the pay was better then other companies, and there were tons of opportunities at the company - so I took it!

Negotiation Details – No negotiation at all which was very frustrating. She wouldn't allow it. But in hind sight, I was already being paid very close to the top of the pay scale for a new analyst.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accenture in February 2007.

Interview Details – The process began in December 2006 with an application submitted through careers.accenture.com. A recruiter reached out in January 2007 to schedule a preliminary phone interview. The first phone interview consisted of mainly background and experience questions. A second interview was scheduled (a behavioral interview) that delved in past actions ("tell me about a time when..") and experienced ("what did you do in a situation where...").

Later an office visit with 20-30 other interviewees consisting of lunch and presentations by recruiters. Later two one-on-one interviews with senior managers and/or senior executives were performed. The substance of both one-on-one interviewers seemed to find an obvious reason NOT to hire a candidate.

Interview Question – What did you do when you were forced to work with a colleague with whom you had an obvious conflict in work style?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The ability to negotiate was limited.
