I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Accenture.
Interview Details – Recruiter sent me an email, scheduled an initial interview which consisted of basic behavioral questions and questions on my background, moved on to skills interview
Interview Question – What is your greatest weakness View Answer
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in December 2013.
Interview Details –
Have 2.5 years of work experience.
Applied online, received contact from recruiter via email within 12 hours.
Asked to complete Behavioral Assessment online - took about 25 minutes. Very general questions, multiple choice, to see how you assess or react or feel about a variety of situations.
Setup initial screening by conference call. Lasted 30-35 minutes. Very relaxed, asked about current position, general skills and interests. Asked me something related to the industry as a whole (not a trick question) just comparing opinions. Talked about interview process, timeline, position, etc.
First round interview was bypassed due to me knowing the hiring manager.
Second round interview - Skills interview - conducted by a Senior Manager that does not work for the group that I was interviewing for, but has the same technical knowledge and skills just a different group. Interview was scheduled for 60-75 minutes. He outlined the 7 topics he wanted to cover. I answered and got through them in about 40 minutes. For the remainder of the time he asked me to ask any questions and we just talked generally about industry, interests, etc.
Third round interview - Situational Interview - conducted by a Director not directly involved with the group that I was interviewing for, but works in the same technical silo for a different industry. More questions along the lines of 'tell me about your typical day', 'toughest work situation', 'how do you prioritize multiple projects/tasks', where do you want to be in 5 years, what are you looking to get out of this position, etc.
Asked to complete background check application.
Final Confirmation Call - Recruiter gave me the details of the offer and said that a written offer would be extended after verbal acceptance.
Pressed for me to give response within 1 week, requested 2 weeks as I was considering other offers.
Interview Question – Toughest questions were when they tried to have me relate what I do now, to what would be expected from me in the new role. (Same industry, slightly different positions/processes) Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Haven't officially accepted, haven't had negotiation yet.
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

I applied online - interviewed at Accenture in December 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied online beginning of November 2013 and was contacted by email on Dec 1 to ask about my availability for the first round phone interview.
Recruiter was super nice and she basically went over my resume and I explained what I did, how was my project and talked about groups I was a member.
Couple of days after that, they contacted me for the second round phone interview "Situational interview" and they seem to move fast which is great. They always ask for availabilities and respond fast.
Haven't done the second round yet but I hope it will be great

Interview Question – What does an SI Analyst do? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotation
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in November 2013.
Interview Details –
Absolutely loved the efficiency of the entire process!
The process for me began with a recommendation for the position, from a partner. Now as much as that level of recommendation immediately got me a first round interview, the consultants that interviewed me were really looking to make sure that I could "walk the walk."
Round 1: 2 Interviews (over the phone) - 45 minutes each - Case Interviews & Background
*Wait time for results - 1 week
Final Round: 2 interviews (in-person at SF office) - 45 minutes each - 1 Case & 1 Confirming
*Wait time for results - 48 hours
Case interviews were the focus (and most difficult part) of the process. If anyone needs practice with the case interview process, look up Victor Cheng and his LOMS series. Without a doubt, the only reason I did so well with my process.
Interview Question – Case Interviews were the hardest aspect...PRACTICE. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Accenture in December 2013.
Interview Details –
Met them at the career fair after attending on campus event, 3 rounds of interviews.
Round 1 - 20 minute basic personality match check (interests, reason for applying etc.)
Round 2 - Detailed behavioral interview (Standard describe a situation type questions)
Round 3 - 2 behavioral interviews at Accenture office with senior executives. 45 minutes each but questions were asked only for 20-25 minutes. Rest of the time is for the "Do you have any questions" part. Seemed like they were using this to gauge interest and personality fit so it is important to have some good/smart questions here which you can use to show your aptitude/interest.
Interview Question – Nothing unusual. Basic behavioral interviews. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Offer was reasonable. I was placed in a major city and I brought up the cost of living, they hinted that no negotiation was possible and I didn't press the issue.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied to on campus recruiting at my university and got a first round on campus. The first round is just a basic fit interview. Questions will be different depending on the interviewer but include:
Tell me about yourself, Why Accenture?, What does Accenture do?, What do you think Systems Integration Analysts do?, Is there anything else you would like to bring up that we haven't discussed?
Received a phone call and email about passing the first round within a few business days. The second interview was on site, one hour with a manager. It was behavioral and also conversational and included questions such as:
Tell me about... yourself, what you consider to be your major accomplishment, a time you had a conflict with someone you worked with, a time you had to solve an open-ended question with little details given, and a time when were given too much information.
Again, received a phone call and an email about the third round within a few business days. There were about 15-16 people that day interviewing, about 8 each in the morning and afternoon sessions. The third round was also on site and included a 1 hr presentation by current analysts (benefits, etc) + lunch, and 2 interviews (1 with a manager, 1 with an executive level person). The interviews were both fit questions and behavioral questions such as:
Why Accenture?, tell me about a time you lead a team to success, how do you think your experiences fit into the role of a systems integration analyst?
Interview took place in New York City Office but offer was in Washington DC.
