    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    There are multiple steps in the process and all of the can be completed over the phone until the last interview. This is in person or via tele-presence. I had a total or six interviews, one per week. I had more than the normal amount because I originally applied for one position and was rejected. However, with a couple of days I was offered the chance to interview for my current position. You must have documentation to back up your experience.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate - they offered me a salary in the range I needed. I also received a signing bonus, due to the fact that I would be ineligible for a promotion that year.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    My resume was submitted through their employee referral program. I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter who asked me a few basic questions and wanted details on my background. Then, he set up two phone interviews that were business case study interviews. During each case study interview, the interviewer asked me details about my background and also asked me general questions like: What do you know about Accenture, why do you want to be a consultant, what do you think a typical day is like for a consultant.

    Legal Administration Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    The interview may vary, but all have to go through a very grueling interview which includes a personality test. The candidate does not know that it's happening when he/she is being interviewed though. It's Accenture's way of making sure they hire the right people that fit the Accenture culture.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me a time you disagreed with your supervisor and why?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Yes - they are very open to negotiating if the candidate is selected.

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The official process was: a screening interview with the recruiter, a skills interview with a peer, a situational interview with an HR interviewer, and an in-person interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager chose to add an additional group lunch with peers.

    Everybody was as professional as you would expect given the caliber of the company. The situational interview was handled very well. Each question followed a specific pattern:
    * ask the question
    * describe what she is looking for in the response
    * repeat the question
