    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. 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.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    At least for me, it was fairly standard interview for a large company. I applied online and within a couple of weeks got a call back. They assign you a HR person that pretty sticks with you along the way to help set up times for the next interview.

    1) Phone
    2) Skills
    3) Behavioral
    4) Face to Face

    Interview Questions
    • Everything is pretty much standard like how do you prioritize work?   Answer Question
