    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    J'ai postulé sur le site internet d'Accenture France en répondant à une offre pour une position de "Junior Consultant" stagiaire. Cependant je cherchais un contrat d'apprentissage.
    Un mois plus je recevais une convocation pour participer à une journée d'entretien entre 9h et 14h du matin à Axe France, le siège à Paris. En arrivant, nous avons été accueilli par un consultant sénior qui nous a fait une présentation d'Accenture. Ensuite nous avons eu un petit déjeuner et une responsable RH nous a expliqué en quoi allait constituer la journée, elle s'articulerait entre un entretien individuel avec un manager, un case study individuel sur ordinateur et un case study en groupe. L'entretien avec le manager s'est bien passé. Il avait mon CV entre les mains et m'a demandé de me présenter et d'expliquer mes expériences professionnelles, associatives et personnelles figurant sur mon CV. Il m'a posé des questions très standards : pourquoi Accenture ? Pourquoi le conseil ? Sur quel genre de projets/secteurs d'activités voudriez-vous travailler ? L'entretien s'est fait entièrement en français mais parce que j'avais une expérience à Londres, j'ai de moi même expliqué mon expérience en anglais. Je n'ai eu aucune question de logique ou de culture générale.

    Le case study individuel était un logiciel de business game d'une difficulté moyenne et durant 30 minutes.

    Le case study en groupe consistait à effectuer deux groupes de 6 personnes. Nous étions des candidats venant de différentes écoles et backgrounds mais globalement étions tous juniors. Ensuite nous avons reçu un même case study présenté par un manager consultant. Ensuite nous avions quelques minutes pour penser à des questions à poser et un laps de temps pour les poser à tour de rôle avec le deuxième groupes. Par la suite nous avons du préparer en groupe une réponse à la problématique du cas et la présenter aux consultants sur place. Durant la préparation comme la présentation, un consultant était assis près de nous et prenait des notes.

    Un mois plus tard, j'ai eu un appel téléphonique d'une responsable RH qui me faisait une proposition.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was hired as an experienced hire with one year of background in SAS coding.
    -Initial Phone Screen (Easy stuff)
    -Behavioral Interview (Phone again all 'Tell me about a time when you...')
    -4 more phone interviews with Senior Managers/MDs
    -Final on site confirming interview at the Chicago office

    The process was long winded due to trying to align schedules with busy people that weren't 100% focused on recruiting.

    Interview Questions
    • There were several questions on how to write SAS code over the phone. Writing code over the phone is hard so have some pen and paper available or a laptop so you can see what your code looks like.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated 1 year of experience at level to make getting promoted easier after my first year.

    I interviewed out of undergrad and it was a three round process. First round was a simple behavioral interview whereby they wanted to get a feel for your personality. Second round was case based and looking to understand how you go about solving problems. Third round was more for me as a prospective employee to meet some senior people and understand who I'd be working with.
