Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details

Applied online for a graduate posting and was called within a week for a 1st round phone interview off site. First round was scheduled for two 45-minute parts: behavioural and case components. The behavioural interview was with a manager who asked - Why Accenture? Why consulting? Tell me about a time when you lead a team? What was the impact? Are you comfortable with travel? The case was about a market entry for a luxury goods store - tested strategy, math and execution planning. Received a call the next day inviting me to 2nd round and scheduled for the following week.

2nd round was with also two 45-minute parts: case and behavioural. Case interview was made up of 2 pseudo mini-cases - very structure heavy but no data to collect which made it very difficult. Final interview was with a senior exec was mostly an opportunity for me to ask questions about the company.

Was told that I'd have a response within a week - that was 6 weeks ago, but haven't heard back.

Overall not a bad experience - except not getting a response has been extremely unpleasant.

Interview Questions
  • Business Case:"How would you approach a JV?" & "How would you convince a team to go along with your idea?"

    Behavioural: "Tell me about yourself - walk me through a project you're proud of".

    Interview Details

    Two back to back on campus interviews with a case given in each interview. Each interview started with the typical "walk me through your resume", "why consulting", "why Accenture?". Then the interviewer proceeded to give details on the case with about 30 minutes allotted to solve it. Cases are based on interviewer's past experience with actual clients. Be prepared for cases specific to the interviewer's concentration (healthcare, banking, etc...)

    I applied online – interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    The process took months. There were four interviews after the initial screening: behavioral, experience, in person with a senior manager, phone with a partner. Before each interview they sent information about how to prepare and what kinds of questions would be asked. The recruiter also prepared me with tips about the kind of information they would be looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly I can't remember any difficult questions. It was very straightforward and I prepared thoroughly. The most difficult thing was staying prepared and enthuastic during the months that it took.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I researched beforehand and the offer came in at the exact figures I was going to ask for based upon the title, location, experience and company. Very straightforward and fair.

    I interviewed with Accenture when I was in business school and went through the typical recruiting process of preparing for behavior and case interviews. I met with 2 people during the first round interviews while on campus and then 3 additional people in the Philadelphia office for Accenture.

    Interview Details

    3 interview process. First interview is an hour conversation which focuses on behavioral interview questions. Second interview is strictly skill-based (but with some behavioral aspects). Third interview is with a MD - which means it is basically a shoe in, but you don't want to mess that up.

    Interview Details

    People seemed very nice and everyone seemed very interested and attnetive to the interview. Company is known for diversity so they were emphasizing that part of the culture. Some of the people were quite helpful and friendly when interviewing and they encouraged questions, which seemed like they care. I would recommend people to prepare with many different cases as I froze as I was trying to answer some o the questions. Analytical question prep is a plus, which I lacked. Try to be as detailed and as creative as possible. Relax and try to be yourself. As well, since there is no time limit, try to take some time as you come up with your answers, no rush. I think I rushed too much and stumbled quite a bit. Typical behavioral questions were asked as well. Work experience in the similar field would be a plus, but I did not have any.

    Interview Questions
    • Many of the questions were quite technical, and some of their questions were straight out of typical consulting case manuals. Nothing out of ordinary   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Be hired is an easy stuff: when Accenture need a resource, they hire the whoever is willing to join among the ones with compatible skills. Process is easy: first you get contacted by HR, then have an interview by a Senior Manager - who'll talk all the time - and then you'll meet a Senior Executive - who generally is not interested in you. Expect them to push you high to accept their offer.

    Negotiation Details
    If you're really interested in getting hired by Accenture - don't give up the negotiation. The are in a hurry, not you. You can get the money you expect, simply keep negotiating.
