    Interview

    Phone interview (60 mins) with HR. Besides the basic questions regarding motivation and work experience the interview was very dynamic and in my opinion the focus was on "why do you want to work for Accenture?" "Was is the unique value that you can bring to the company". At the end of the question they ask me a brain teaser which you can not really prepare and you have to show how to solve a problem. The focus is here not on the "right" answer but rather how you approach that problem.

    Interview Questions

    • The brain teaser was unexpected and pretty difficult. But as I said try not to focus what might be the right answer, rather focus on what kind of information you would need, where to find it, how to make assumptions and describe as much as possible how you approach that problem (which steps, etc.)   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had an initial screen from HR followed by another behavioral assessment. Following the assessment I had a skills interview with a SR. Manager. The first two interviews were pretty straightforward and the third interview was very detailed around my expertise. HR has been very helpful and very good with following up.

    • Actually each question was expected and I haven't found any of the questions to be too difficult.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Friend referred, I applied.
    Got a call from the recruiter who did an initial HR type skills assessment and basic questions. 30 minutes
    Within a week had a technical interview on the phone with a senior technical manager, got grilled a lot, the guy knew his stuff - 1 hours
    Cleared technical , Within a week got a behavioral interview - 1on 1 telephone with a behavioral consultant - again could feel the heat the guy had a no nonsense (almost curt) approach - thought I blew it but apparently not - cleared this as well

    Final - confirming interview as with a senior exec / partner over the webcam - this was casual and conversational - he told me right away that i passed.

    Recruiter got back to me with an email initial offer, I countered with a number - got a small bump and a joining bonus.

    Accepted revised offer. All in all a very pleasant a business like experience.
