    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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.
