Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in January 2015.

Interview

With a total six interviews, Accenture’s interview process is rather structured. More specifically, there were: 1 HR, 1 Behavior, 2 Tech skills, and 2 In-person (NYC) interviews. Each interview was about one hour long that always started with outlining the flow of the interview. The specific questions were general in nature however, the interviewer always probed for a deeper understanding. The probes were aimed at understanding and not to throw and curve balls. It was a good and interesting experience.

Interview Questions

  • An example from the Behavior interview: When working in a matrix organization, what do you think are the biggest challenges?   Answer Question
  • An example from the Behavior interview: Tell me about a situation where you had to agree to an approach to a business problem that you didn't agree with? How did you handle that?   Answer Question

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Typical interview questions. They're looking for seasoned consultants from other consulting firms. They hire very few industry folks and once you get there, most people have no idea how to interact with you.

    Interview Questions

    • If you're an industry person, they will ask you questions that have nothing to do with your experience in industry & everything to do with consulting.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Straight forward

    Interview

    Usually the hiring process is 4 steps: HR, behavioral, Job Specific/Situational, and Final Executive Interview. I was a re-hire so I didn't have to do the behavioral, and had 3 interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • When getting into the Job specific interviews, being a consulting company the interviewer asked questions about leadership, leading a team, how would I handle certain situations with clients, as well asked my knowledge in specific areas, trends, and opinions on some opportunities.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    2 months, 3 rounds......scenario based leadership questions, generally a smooth process. Big company hence I had to follow up a few times....but ok experience. I'd say I have had better experience in my previous companies in terms of the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    interviewed with external search firm than recruiter than hiring manager and then several senior staff, some interviews were over the phone or via video conference - interviews were easy to arrange via their interviewing app (very cool), and I was impressed with the caliber of people and their enthusiasim for the company. I was very happy at my previous company but was "sold" on accenture because of the people.

    Interview Questions

    • lost of behavioral interview questions: tell me a time when, give me an example etc. Interviews were pretty conversational in style, no surprises in the interview process. Very thoughtful approach, strong prep from the recruiters and good follow up from the interview team. I enjoyed the process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    yes, make sure to present factual evidence on curent compensation so that they truly understand what you could be walking away from.

    Interview

    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
