    Interview

    The interview process was conducted very professionally and cordially. The first interview phase consisted of a quick 30 minute phone call with a recruiter. The second interview was another phone interview, but this time with an executive. This one was a more technical interview, so it will be good to study the job description in depth. The third and final interview was an in-person meeting with a senior executive in the team I was to join. This one was a lot more informal and helped me to understand the culture and expectations of the company in a casual and less intimidating setting. Overall, a positive experience.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    There were a couple of phone interviews some were technical related specifically around Java development. There was 1 in-person "interview" which was really a see you in person once for about 5 minutes with no real questions asked, although an oppertunity to answer questions. It was a new grad situation so not much needed I guess.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe if you would rather be an expert in a field or generalist.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Very little room for negotiation. Start date even wasn't negotiable, despite a long-distance move with a move package that didn't fully cover the move.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Accenture (Princeton, NJ) in December 2012.

    Interview

    The Interview was very theoretical and no question was asked regarding my work experience. Mostly definitions were asked and I am not sure how many people remember definitions while they work.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    A friend who worked for Accenture referred me to interview for the Business Writer position (Job title autofilled). The interviewer was sporadic. Months would go by between initial contact, written test, and follow-up. I started to get used to not hearing anything. I took two writing tests, both overnight, that were pretty straightforward.
