Accenture Federal Services Technology and Systems Integration Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Accenture.
Interview Details – I applied to this position via campus recruiting and got a first and second round interview. There were more greeters (~6) than I am typically used to (~2-3) and they were exceptionally friendly and carried out casual conversations prior to the interview. My first round interview was essentially a resume screening, where the interview asked about my experience, why Accenture, and what I can contribute to the company. The second round was behavioral, where I was asked a time where I demonstrated time management, a time when a decision I made affected the rest of the team; a time when I communicated complex ideas in simple manner. Overall, the experience was positive.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Answer Question

Recruiting Support Role At Client Site Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in October 2010.
Interview Details – Recruiter called to verify some information and then set up an in person interview at company site. Arrived for 1 on 1 interview, moved to phone interview/ skill interview and finished with a Senior Exec close out interview. Normal work history questions about teamwork and attention to details. Was asked about my leadership experience about mid way thru interview after the person started to really read my resume in front of me. Was told of another position opening and if I might consider it beside the one I was looking for.
Negotiation Details – Applied for one position but was offered the team lead position instead. Surprised by offer as it was 20 grand more then expecting. Probably made a negotiation mistake by showing my surprise of the offer. Should of held out for another 5 grand. But the first year base pay bump of 7 percent helped later.
