Recruiting Support Role At Client Site Interview

Recruiting Support Role At Client Site
Reston, VA

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.

Systems Integration Analyst Interview

Systems Integration Analyst

I interviewed at Accenture in January 2014.

Interview Question – Why did you decide to pursue this option when you had several other methods of tackling the problem ?   Answer Question

Legal Administration Interview

Legal Administration
Chicago, IL

I applied online and interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – The interview may vary, but all have to go through a very grueling interview which includes a personality test. The candidate does not know that it's happening when he/she is being interviewed though. It's Accenture's way of making sure they hire the right people that fit the Accenture culture.

Interview Question – Tell me a time you disagreed with your supervisor and why?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Yes - they are very open to negotiating if the candidate is selected.

Process Analyst Interview

Process Analyst
Baltimore, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in May 2014.

Interview Details – This was a unique position for a new group in Social Security Administration. The bad was all the technical matter the position described was not the core of the interview. My resume presented those capabilities gaining the interview. The core was ability to analyze and present to management my findings, with an emphasis on running most of my effort by myself. It took over 20 minutes to get this out.
The good was Linda was a great interviewer and once I caught was she was looking for I was able to recapture a losing interview into a successful one. It wasn't until the end one point was raised that I could not overcome, but even that did not toss me off the short list.

Interview Question – In reality, there was none. The only tough point was not grasping where she was going until 20 minutes into the interview.   Answer Question
