    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    1) Submit application - Grades appear to be important. There appears to be a tendency to pick Computer and Electronic Engineering students. In recent times, non-engineering students have gotten in.
    2) Initial interview is HR related. This could be about an hour.
    3) Second interview by Managers and potentially Senior Managers at Accenture. This could be about an hour.
    4) A final interview is by a partner at Accenture - this could be very short (15 minutes).

    Most interviews at the Accenture office. Your interviewer might be slightly delayed (do not worry too much about that).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate. This is an entry level post, and you are given a fixed offer.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Straight forward 3 rounds of face to face interview. There was no HR round.

    First round was skill assessment, second round was behavioral assessment, and a final closing round with the MD. Each interview lasted an hour. Interviewers were easy going; they shared about the team, projects, future plan etc, and they asked about my previous project experiences. For behavioral assessment, they asked 3 questions and was told to only describe situations that happened in the recent 3 years; hypothetical answers such as "if I were in that situation, I would..." were not allowed.

    I applied via recruitment agent, and feedback from Accenture to recruitment agent was almost immediate.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you had good relationship with colleague or customer.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online via referral. After 3 days, was contacted via email to set up an initial interview (HR screening). Asked typical questions like "walk me through your resume," etc. Lasted about 30 minutes, including my questions. She went over the interview process with me. She told me that, if I was successful, I would get a call to set up a first round interview with a consultant that would test my skills for the job. If successful, I would then go to a second interview that would consist of 2 - 45 minute case studies. If successful, would meet with a partner for a third and final interview. I was called 3 days after screen to schedule a meeting with a consultant in the local office. Interview was half "walk me through your resume," where we would stop and he would dig deeper into certain projects that were of interest. The last half was a small case study (how would you determine if a company should open a new refinery in Africa - risks, valuation, etc). Next was a brain teaser. I flubbed the brain teaser. After, he explained the "answer" to the case study and brain teaser he asked if I had any questions. His responses were quick and somewhat dismissive, like he already knew he wouldn't recommend me to move forward so no reason to waste more time answering questions. Sure enough, 10 business days after the interview, I received the generic "thanks, but no thanks" email. It came from a no-reply email, so I couldn't ask for feedback. Email to HR and my interviewer went unanswered, as well. Overall, the interview was OK - just wish there was some feedback...maybe if I made it further...

    Application

    interviewed at Accenture (Singapore (Singapore)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I got invited for an interview, after Accenture visited my b-school campus. Interviewed in a first round for their Singapore office, do not know the outcome yet. The first round was mostly a 'fit' interview, with a small market sizing case study. What set Accenture apart from other consulting interviews was the fact that they asked quite a few questions based on my industry expertise. That was something I appreciated and enjoyed.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked what my opinion was on the developments in my industry in some of the markets I was applying for (but have no experience in). Nothing too complex, they just tested whether the candidate had a basic understanding and interest in the work of the group they are applying for.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted application through university on 13 March. I had a phone interview with recruiter on 22 March, and received a call for Behavioral Assessment (final round for internship) on 4 April. The phone interview with recruiter took about 30 to 45 minutes, during which I was asked to verify my GPA and answered some questions related to things listed in my resume. I was told that I would hear from them within a week if I passed the first round, but they took about 10 days (which apparently seemed like SOP for the company, based on what I read online). I will be having my Behavioral Assessment on 11 April. I was referred in last year, but I couldn't take up the offer so this time I'm giving it a go again.
