    It's detailed and gives you a good insight into role, co. and expectations. You can ask questions and clarify growth path. Also discuss location, overall HR is flexible but if it's project specific requirements location will be fixed

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Long arduous process, but glad to see they do this. I spent about a month in various trial discussions and meetings, and traveled to two offices. I cannot say that I was a normal hire at all. I specialize in healthcare and education compliance and so the job I was applying for was very very specialized, something I don't get to do in my current company. Overall i went through interviews, case studies, lunch meetings, client situation discussions, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Two phone screening interviews initially before proceeding to next step. Each phone interview was different. One interview was largely case study based and looked for transparency in thought process. The other was largely behavioral and looked for how I behaved in response to certain situations. In the case study interview, questions revolved around certain client situations and business challenges and looked for how I would respond to difficult questions and challenges from the client. In the other interview, the questions revolved around management challenges such as poorly performing staff on projects and how I handled those situations.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Accenture interview process is lengthy and detailed, but all the representatives of the company were up-front about it and I knew from the start that it would take about 4-6 weeks to complete (if all went well and I passed each round). I proceeded through a set of phone interviews -- first background, then technical, then consulting / managerial. The final interviews were face-to-face on-site -- detailed and difficult but not unreasonable or unfair.

    I was impressed by the interview process. I liked the all the people I met, and everyone struck me as sound personally (nice people), sound technically and committed to the company and to doing good work. There were no "trick" questions -- they covered reasonable background from my resume, and extended to questions that someone with that background should reasonably know.

    The best part of the interview process was not that Accenture got to know about me -- they did, or course -- but that I got a much better sense of Accenture. I came away with the sense that these were good, smart people who believed in what they were doing and worked hard. This was the right impression, and I appreciated and genuinely enjoyed everyone I met with the company.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unusual step was a writing question. I was asked to describe the technical architecture and design decisions for a web application, and to complete the write-up in an hour.   View Answer

    I received a good and fair offer, and the only negotiation was to determine the best start date.
