    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    An assessment centre carried out in their London office. Had three sections to the assessment centre. The first being an individual task where they tested your analytical skills and how well you could summarise a lot of information. The second a group case study where assessors were there in the room with you and hearing your thoughts as well as observed how you worked in a team. Lastly was the one to one interview where they asked competency questions as well as how you worked in the team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through accenture website. I have been asked to take a video interview as a first stage of the interview process. The time limit given was 3 days and the area in which the questions will be asked are mentioned in the email. It consists of 7 competency based questions, a short programming test of my choice and then 4 non accessed questions. Every thing was quite easy. Only thing is we need to be good in programming basics and learn about the company before taking the test.

    Interview

    1) Application 2) Video Interview 3) Assessment Centre Process was enjoyable and really efficient - no complaints. Assessment Centre consisted of 2 interviews and a group exercise that focused on Accenture's digital services - I did find that one of the assessors during the group exercise was smirking at the candidates which wasn't very professional

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    First round consisted of an HR interview and second round of a skills interview with a Senior Manager. Both interviews were similar, going through my CV and previous experience, a few easy competency based questions and a few more technical questions from the Manager to check my knowledge and way of thinking.

    Analyst Consulting Group - Graduate Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. Process took about 4 weeks. Would have been faster if I was not sitting for exams. Online application followed by a phone interview within two weeks. Phone interview revolved around competency questions predominantly with a small case study at the end. Assessment Centre is shorter than most but expect an intensive afternoon. Here is what to expect: 1. Individual analytical exercise (25 min) - Time pressured. Case study with a stack of information to process. You are expected to write answers to 5 very pointed questions. Be as specific as you can, but do not need to focus on the details (actual percentages, numbers etc). They ask that you focus on three main themes and my advise is to stick to the themes and don't deviate too much. Bullet point everything and don't spend too much time on one question. You won't have time to read everything so make sure you know what you are looking for. 2. Group Case Study Exercise (30 min) - You will work in groups of five to arrive at a solution for a client (two merging banks). Lots of data to process. Stay very focused and try to pick on key issues (cost, pros, cons). Speak out and try to take the lead in various capacities - keep time, write on the board etc. The solutions in the end are straightforward. Focus on what the key aims of the banks are and Accenture's key interests. You can go over budget! But make sure you can justify it. At the end, the assessors ask the group to discuss what they might have done differently if money was no object. Speak out during this time and focus on Accenture's capabilities. 3. 1 on 1 Interview (30 min) - Very relaxed interview. Start by discussing the case study with the interviewer. Make sure you know what solutions your group picked and how you will justify it to the client AND to Accenture. Think of the stakeholders and use common sense. Try to tie in with the capabilities Accenture offers. Follows with a few competency questions which are pretty much similar to the phone interview questions. Stay relaxed. Don't overprepare. Use common sense.

    Technology Consulting Consultant/Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    1st stage-screening interview with a Senior Manager. It was a nice experience as it was not like a formal interview at all. Positive feedback which i knew from my conversation.It was not technical at all. I was told that they dont expect Consultants to have deep technical knowledge as work will be outsourced to offshore countries and the work has to be managed with them and delivered to clients. 2nd stage- Case study and questions which lasted for about 1.45 mins over phone. A MD called and asked very deep commercial and client handling questions.He was a nice guy but the questions were mainly around commercial aspects like how would you bring additional revenue to Accenture, how would you approach the case study/client issue i.e. IT implementation, how would you setup a team and what kind of resources you need to execute the implementation/transformation project etc. It will be good to be prepared to think and answer from a Programme Manager/Senior Project Manager level in terms of structuring your teams, approach, resources etc. I found this to be very senior although i was able to answer almost close to what he expected but not in the structure he expected. Outcome: Positive Salary:Toughest part to negotiate

    Interview Questions

    • How would you put in place a structure for a particular client given in the case study? What are the main steps to be taken like for eg.structuring business process, Solution Architecture etc.   Answer Question
