I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in May 2012.

Interview Details – I was referred by a friend instead of the traditional route. I had a screening with the recruiter lead of the project, then a skill interview with a manager, and then a closing interview with the senior project manager.

Negotiation Details – Entry level salary is not negotiable

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Vienna, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Accenture in August 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online and got an e-mail the next morning to schedule a phone interview. Was contacted by HR and talked for about 30 minutes about why I'd be a good fit, what did I know about the company, etc etc. A lot of standard interview questions. We then went over the rest of the interview process and scheduled a time for me to come in for an in-person interview, but I eventually declined and canceled that because I had received a job offer from another company.

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Reston, VA

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in July 2011.

Interview Details – 1st step in the process was the phone recruitment. The HR person goes into detail, asking about your resume, and why you would be a great fit for Accenture. If you pass that then you move onto the,

2nd step which was a skills interview with one of the higher ups. The person basically talks about the position at hand, and asks what you could bring to the table given your previous experience. This lasted about an hour.

The 3rd step, and probably the hardest, was the behavior interview. Best way to prepare for this is to research questions. None of them were tricky (probably because I prepared beforehand), but this is the toughest part of the interview. I was later told, this is what they use to weed out most of the applicants for the position. So do your best and prepare for it.

4th and final step, was two face to face interviews. One with a senior manager, and another with someone else on the team you'd be working with. Pretty simple, straight forward questions. To me this 4th interview just seemed like a way for the team to meet you and make sure you didn't come across as some nutjob. Like I stated before, if you pass the behavioral interview, I think you have a fantastic shot at securing the job.

HR contacted me 4 business days later and made me an offer.

Overall a tremendous experience. Everything was straightforward, and the woman at HR who helped me was delightful. She called me after every step, and made sure to accommodate me the best she could.
