Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2013.

Interview Details – The process started off with a 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter, where I briefly went over my previous experience. Then I had another interview, over the phone, with an interviewer from the US, where I was asked several situation-based questions. The questions that were asked helped the interviewer get a better idea of my experience. My last two interviewers were in person with two different managers. They asked similar questions to the ones asked in the second phone interview and questions to identify my technical skills. Two days after my final interview, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – How would you improve upon a process that was implemented at your previous job?   Answer Question

Córdoba (Argentina)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Accenture in May 2010.

Interview Details – can't remember 100% what position it was, something finance or business related. the interview was a group one first, then a separate one who made it to the next one and so on. I made it to the very last stage, which is the psychological test. This was in Argentina. I'm not sure what went wrong in the end lol.

Interview Question – the psychological test can be tricky. they wanna know if ur personality matches the company one. wtf?   Answer Question

Financial Analyst
Distrito Federal (Mexico)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in May 2012.

Interview Details – I had 3 interviews in the first day where first is with the HR personnel then a higher ranked HR personnel and then later a project manager which had 9 years of experience with Accenture. He then gave me a business case to work on whereby I had to build an Excel sheet analysis. After the case you have to explain your analysis and consider other factors to the case. The questions are relaxed and not grilling, but pay more attention to the case as I believe the analysis you made contributes alot to your profile.

Interview Question – What are the micro aspects to the case scenario have you thought about?   Answer Question
