Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Accenture in February 2015.

Interview

It was a 45 minute interview consisting of self-introduction, behavioral questions and two small cases. The behavioral questions mainly focused on how to work in a team and what industries interest the candidate the most. The two cases are straightforward and simple. One was marketing sizing and the other was about operations.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Seattle, WA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    First round interview: on-campus, 30 minutes casual conversation with a Senior Manager.
    I was invited to the second round interview on the same day. Due to the large volume of candidates, the second round interview was to be conducted over telephone.

    Second round interview: 45 minutes situational phone interview with a HR recruiter. She wanted me to use the STAR method to answer all the behavioral questions, spend 1-2 minutes to give an overview of the problem, task at hand and result. She proceeded to ask follow-up questions on my answers.
    Questions asked:
    1. Tell me about a time when you had to work under an extremely tight deadline and how did you handle it?
    2. Tell me about a time when you had to work with a large volume of data and how did you handle it?
    3. Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a team member in a team and how did you resolve the conflict?
    4. Tell me about the biggest challenge you faced in the past and how did you handle it?
    5. Tell me about a time when you had to create a plan and what steps did you take to follow the plan?
    6. Tell me about a time when you had to handle something you’ve never dealt with before.
    The HR recruiter took notes and sent it back to the campus recruiter, heard back within the same week.

    Interview is a generic "introduce your self", followed by two case interviews. Interviews are conducted on campus and about ~40 people get the first round interviews. After that, if you proved to second round, you get to face someone more senior, such as Managers (but never a Partner). Till then you get the chance to discuss benefits and etc.

    Interview

    They were quick to communicate and reach out to me when I applied. The actual process took about a few weeks. Initially, there were two phone screening. Afterwards, I was able to make it to the 3rd round interview. Being honest with the questions they asked worked as an advantage. Lastly, there was a offer letter. It was quite tough to negotiate an offer with them.
