Business Analyst Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in March 2014.

Interview

3 stages: application form, telephone interview, assessment centre
All in all a good experience and all Accenture staff were very nice and friendly.

Assessment centre was a group exercise followed by a project planning / presenting exercise / interview.
I found the group exercise most stressful. You are bombarded with huge volumes of information and have very little time. Be selective on what you read - sounding confident and being cooperative is the main thing!

The interview was mostly on the project planning exercise and mainly involved the interviewer pointing out possible problems in the plan and asking how you would mitigate those risks.

Interview Questions

  • How would you resolve potential delays at stage "x" in the project? The interviewer was very pushy on these sorts of questions, trying to squeeze as much detail (even if it's obvious) out of you.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Milano (Italy)).

    Interview

    the first interview is in group. Just be yourself, and try to pay attention to everything happens. Different business cases are presented to you and to the group. It is very important to be smart, to talk and to collaborate. The other two interviews are 1:1 with questions about personal background, competencies and experiences. You also discuss some business case, normally quite feasible. It is very important to be motivated and to know what you are doing, why you are there. Never speak about work/life balance. In any case the answer is simple: there is no balance.

    Interview Questions

    • -What are your 3 major shortcomings.
      -How many people get married in Italy every year.

It is very important here to show interest, to be motivated and to know what you are doing, why you are there.
