HR Round only, asked basic behavioral questions as I was recruited through the special RHP program. So, I got through like the technical and the aptitude round by the RHP process and got straight ahead to the HR round alone

    I applied online – interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Two interviews - phone and webcam. The phone interview was really uplifting as my interviewer was really passionate and positive. The web camera interview was very informative but it felt more structured. The web cam interview didn't include a programming test but some questions regarding OOD were asked.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Mine was a College Hiring and the questions mostly consisted of aptitude questions and general IQ test. They majorly test your logic rather than getting too technical.
    There were three rounds viz. Written, Technical and HR round and the technical was the most long running. For Written it was mostly aptitude test and Logical reasoning.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview, follow by 40 question test I had to pass. Then went to Arlington Office for two more interviews. One was HR and the other was technical. The process was smooth. The HR interview was tough. He tried to go in-depth in the ONE question I didn't have a good answer for. Had to answer a brain teaser at the end.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Overall it was good experience First interview was taken by recruiter after that it was technical interview and last one was video interview taken by HR.

    First interview: This is a phone screen with the recruiter to discuss your qualification for the position. The recruiter will lightly go through your resume to ensure that you meet the qualifications for the position.Second Interview: This is a Technical screen by a manager on your soon to be team. This person will be asking you about your technical background as it relates to the position. It is extremely important to be able to relate your experience back to the job description as well as be current on things occurring in that field.
    Third Interview: Consists of meeting with a Senior Manager. The senior manager will perform a behavioral interview which discusses your background in an indirect manner. The interviewer will ask you about your current project and the role you played on the team. They are looking too see if you were a leader and what type of activities you have completed.

    Last Step in the process is circling back with the recruiter and receiving your offer letter. Make sure that you do some negotiation in this process.

    Interview

    the interview process consisted of three steps for me: phone screen, technical skill, and HR Video chat interview.

    My recruiter extremely polite, fast in responding, and was in touch through the entire process. My recruiter was always willing to help me whenever i encountered log-in issues to sign my offer packet.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical Interview: done over the phone i was asked basic java OOP Q's such as what is OOP? what is Inheritance? Give me example of Inheritance? Advantages of using OOP? what projects you have worked on? describe you role? any issues you encountered in the project? -- lasted 30-40 mins.

      HR video chat interview: 1:1 interview quick 25 mins only basic behavioral Q's such as; why accenture? introduce yourself? tell me a time when you worked on a project that involved in a decision that you had to consult with someone else be executing it? and in between the interview he asked my a few TECHNICAL Q'S, to test my knowledge.

      Heard back with a few hours from my recruiter for a verbal offer that i was able sign my Offer Packet after a couple days.

    Interview

    It was brief and to the point. Asked mostly about databases. Polishing some Java knowledge would also help. You generally would not have a choice to select the team but it would largely depend on the requirements
