    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    I applied in October for the 2015 Graduate Programme. Had my first interview in the Dublin office in November. It only lasted about 30 minutes and was very relaxed. Very straightforward questions. You should have a good knowledge of what Accenture does, the company culture, job progression etc and put emphasis on the client relationship and the Accenture reputation and brand. Some questions about college, work experience and pastimes also. My second round interview was in February and consisted of a one hour case study where you were given very little details and had to ask specific questions to get the information you needed to make a decision. This went very well for me because I kept my emphasis on creating value for the client and maintaining a good relationship. You must be able to justify your decisions so do your homework about the company and their case studies. I then had a second interview with a manager which was very short. It was just a chat about my CV, education, interests, career plan and what I knew about Accenture. Make sure you have good questions prepared, it really helps.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by phone. Got an invitation to onsite interview. When came to their office discovered that guy who was supposed to interview me got sick and nobody called me. That's why was interviewed only by HR and senior management, both asked only questions about my CV. In few days received a call from a team lead, who also asked questions about my CV. Didn't hear any technical questions from them. After that they disappeared. I chased HR person to give me some update or explanation, but they just ignored my letters.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Online application form involving the usual previous education and work details and a mini essay question about why Accenture and about previous extra-curriculars. First round interview was competency based with a manager. Second round consisted of 3 interviews- case study, senior manager interview and a managing director interview. Lots of competency based questions, motivational and CV based questions. Thought they were all pretty tough but very straight forward. Some of the competency based Qs were quite specific, looking for certain situations which were not easy to think of on the spot. Overall a great experience.

You are given a situation where you read a problem situation and you must come up with a answer. Third interview is with the managing director where they mostly want to find out if your personality is the correct fit for the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It took very long. 3 months in total. As it is such a huge company I had the impression no one knew what the other one was doing. I was waiting for weeks to get an answer. First interview were more behavioural questions. The second interview consisted of one interview and a case study. Interview was not difficult however you have to go into detail with your answers. Name many examples! The case study was hard as you do not get a lot of information on the case but have to ask. If you are not native english it may be hard for you to understand the case study that is given to you at the end. Dont let it confuse you. Also there you have to give more examples for why you have choosen the answer.
