    Entry Level Security Consulting Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I stopped by their booth at the last NBMBA conference in houston, dropped my resume and explained my enthusiasm about working for them. I was contacted by a recruiter some few weeks later. He then scheduled me for a phone interview. The phone interview was about my resume(know your resume in and out). Be friendly with him or her, he introduced himself and we spoke briefly about the weather that day. I believe such an approach makes the interviewer more friendly.

    I passed this phase and was scheduled for the second round which is a behavioral interview, also on the phone. Sample questions at this stage includes....tell me about a time when you did xyz. Approach this by thinking back at your previous job, explain a situation you phased, tell them what YOU did on this project specifically! (Read up on the star methodology and watch sample videos on youtube). I had this typed out on a paper which made remembrance easy.

    The last stage was the office visit in DC. I was given an air ticket and setup in a hotel which was less than 5 minutes walk to the office. This consisted of two one - on - one interviews. One was with a really senior executive and the other was with a manager.

    They are trying to determine if you are fit at this stage, they also want to allign you to the proper department. To ace this stage, you need to demonstrate you in depth understanding of what accenture does.

    I was initially being interviewed for a systems integration role, later i was told that i am being considered for the technology infrastructure role. During the interview, i was asked what areas in technology infrastructure i would fit into. I demonstrated my fit for security by speaking about the importance of IT security in the modern day organization.

    I received a verbal offer 2 weeks after the office visit.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you worked in a team, what was your specific contribution to the success of the team?

      What kind of person are you in a team?

      Tell me about a time when you had to work without clear instruction or supervision.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Accenture targets people they can manipulate. Such as former military personnel, people from disadvantaged backgrounds and low functionaing families, people with addictions and superficial values. They prey on young people for the churn and burn culture and unlike other management consulting companies their alumni are challenged.

    Interview Questions
    • There aren't any. It is a superficial process and they are covertly assessing you. The questions themselves are from any book.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Transparent. I negotiated a Senior Manager pay in a Manager title.

    Typical 3 step interview. Submitted my resume online and it took less than a month to have all three interviews scheduled. IMO the second (behavioral) one is make or brake one.

    Interview Details

    Very rigid interview process, there are 5-6 interviews and final interview if face to face. Recruiter filters thru candidates then first and second level on the phone interviews. Then everything stops for couple of weeks. If they are interested then 3rd and 4th interviews. If they are not interested then no feedback is given.

    Systems Integration Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with Accenture for a Systems Integration Analyst position in their Dallas office. The interview was a 3 stage process with 1:1 interview at stage. The first two rounds were held at the university with the last one being held at their office. the interviews were pretty standard (background, skills, leadership, and why do you want to work here). They got back to me fairly quickly after each round and said they would get me an offer decision with two weeks of the final interview. It was 4-5 weeks before I was contacted and told no position were available in that office however positions may be available in other offices. After an additional 6 weeks I was given an offer. While I initially accepted, 6 months passed and I still had no information on start dates. After trying to get information for several weeks I found a better opportunity and decided to go with it. Most likely I would have taken the position had things moved in a timely manner however when the process has been going for 8 months total and you still have no start date, you take it as a sign things were no meant to be. Overall, the initial interview process was straight-forward and relaxed, however the offer stage was atrociously long, uninformative, and a very unimpressive look at the company as a whole.
