    I interviewed online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    1st round interview with HR, 2nd round skills interview, 3rd round situational interview. It was a pretty standard process, and they are desperate for people because turnover is so high. Ask careful questions about the number of hours you can expect to work per week, and the type of work you will be doing.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't think of any. The interviews were pretty straight forward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    None. Don't take the signing bonus. It traps you at the company.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was told it was a seven step process. I made it only to #4. Questions were initially very specific to my Resume. Was asked to explain in detail each period of employment in the list. Later on it got to how I handled pressure, adversity etc. Was asked to rate myself on a scale of novice to expert on several things not listed in the job requirements.

    Interview Questions
    • Explaining to the HR guys aspects of my previous jobs that these had no clue about. They pretended to understand.   Answer Question
