I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Accenture in December 2012.

Interview Details – 3 interviews. 2 on phone and the third face to face. It was based on my experience listed in the resume. Just be confident and say you will get it done no matter what. After passing the third interview, they said there is no position and released me from consideration. But I kept in touch and was polite, so they ended up giving me a better offer.

Interview Question – None. Since it was based on experience, they see how you think and come up with a solution,   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did negotiate and they agreed to some of it. I didn't push it and I accepted it.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in January 2010.

Interview Details – The first phone interview was with the recruiter who basically explained the position and asked basic questions about my resume. Second interview was via phone and was technical. Questions were very easy. The last interview was a one on one with the manager. He asked some technical questions and other behavioral ones. I will find out if I get an offer soon.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in May 2008.

Interview Details – The interview process started with a HR round and they asked about my past experiences and salary expectations. It was general discussion about what I know about Accenture.
Then was the technical round, 1:1. It was not grilling et all. The interviewer made me write some code in Java and asked database questions.
The last round was again HR and the offer was made the same day.
