Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Pune (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in July 2009.

Interview Details – Bad Planning during interview process, Got initial call from consultant for F2F interview and later they told they do not accept resumes below certain level of experience.

Recruitment agency guys somehow managed to arrange interview and it was overall good interview. But again response from HR guys was so sluggish that i was not having any clue of result. After follow up after 40- 50 Days i got call for HR Round finally. That was also perfect and managed to get into such hugh company.

Interview Question – Most difficult thing is that selection process takes too long time.   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Chennai (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in August 2013.

Interview Details – the first communication was extremely formal and impressive through a ,mail invite etc from the HR IDC of accenture. Later i was scheduled for telephonic interviews for Technical, HR which i cleared. after my HR round i recieved a call for F2F managerial round which was a complete bogus. upon being there 50-60 interviewees were made to wait for hours and then allowed for a final round with any manager with no-connection to the projects i was interviewed for before. the HR over there pathetically explains to people why same managers are interviewing the same persons again and again and that consultancies have access to use accentures official mails ! ... when everything else stopped making sense to me i was called for the "managerial" round which turned out to be 101% technical. i was later given the feedback that i was not shortlisted ?!.. though atleast it was quickly given!.

Interview Question – there are no unexpected questions...just un-expected events/ rounds!   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Chennai (India)

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Accenture in August 2013.

Interview Details – The interview was having three rounds with two technical and one HR rounds. If one is strong in the basics of his/her domain and of their current project, you can easily clear tech round. The HR round consisted of 'What is the reason for switching the company?' 'How you tackle tough conditions which you face in your current project' and etc..

Interview Question – Why you want to join accenture, as this company as same as other IT consulting companies.   View Answer

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in August 2013.

Interview Details – One Technical and one HR round was telephonic then called for so called final interview F2F at its office. This round was pathetic in terms of Management of interviewees. They called hundreds of ppl but could not manage them properly, no place to sit. No one knows when their term will come. This round was taken by third party only asked general questions nothing related to your work. They treated as if we are freshers. Had to wait for 7 hours to finish this. It was really a horrible experience, at so called Accenture, the brand... uuuh
