I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Accenture in March 2014.

Interview Details

I got recruited on campus at a career fair. It seems like they hire a lot of recent grads and expect them to start the fall after the spring graduation. The whole process was a little lengthy. I dropped off my resume early January and got invited to apply online with a requisition number. I had 2 phone interviews. The first one was about 30 minutes and the second one was about an hour. I then had an in person interview that lasted about 3 hours.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone interviews and an office visit. The first phone interview focused on my resume. The second phone interview was behavioral and consisted of a lot of "tell me about a time when..." The office visit began with a PowerPoint presentation led by current Analysts. Then, I was brought to three different offices to meet with different senior level consultants. These interviews were much like the first two. They were looking to make sure that I was a good personality fit more than anything else.

    I asked for an increase in base pay and was told that they could grant that request. Instead, I got a 50% increase in my sign-on bonus.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at Accenture in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    3 step interview process was long and covered completely over the phone (last interview via video)

    Dealing with HR was awful as the point of contact was unable to answer detailed questions and did not have authority to make decisions. Multiple delays setting up touch points and clarifying details.

    Upon hiring I suspect that the process was dragged out to push benefits (stock and 401K match) out through missing cycle windows.

    Coming into this organization as an 'Experienced Hire' must be taken with a grain of salt as they are best set up to handle new hires fresh out of college from staffing and training perspective. Once integrated within the organization the new hires become competition that can make promotion more difficult as skills are based on project experiences not overall knowledge or previous skills.

    Hiring process out of Undergraduate College included 2 rounds of campus interviews and a final office visit with 2 additional interviews with Senior Executives. The first round was a basic "you're not crazy" interview - very easy! The second round consisted of 10 behavioral questions, which were a little more difficult.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Usually starts with a screening call. Prepare to give relevant examples of your work / experience (even if you are straight out of college). They are looking for articulate, enthusiastic, smart, and leaders. Once you move forward, they will usually bring you to an office for a number of face-to-face interviews where they will assess you from a behavior and skills perspective. Practice giving relevant examples when answering the interviewers questions and you should do well. Overall they are very friendly and are genuine in learning more about you and how you will fit and be successful there.

    It starts off very cold... an application through an online portal. They then brought me in for "Assessment Day" with a pool of potential hires. This process was very long, but not too stressful.

    Felt like the recruiting process was smooth and dialed in. Recruiters were responsive and you really felt like they were interested in you and didn't keep you guessing. That was one of the main reasons I went with Accenture vs. a competing offer where the process was drawn out and felt like the recruiter had no urgency, then when you had another offer they then desperately wanted to get you their offer, but without it would have kept you waiting. There was a clear contrast in how I perceived the 2 companies which are both successful Fortune 500s, but Accenture's process got an A+ and felt great.
