    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Have 2.5 years of work experience.

    Applied online, received contact from recruiter via email within 12 hours.

    Asked to complete Behavioral Assessment online - took about 25 minutes. Very general questions, multiple choice, to see how you assess or react or feel about a variety of situations.

    Setup initial screening by conference call. Lasted 30-35 minutes. Very relaxed, asked about current position, general skills and interests. Asked me something related to the industry as a whole (not a trick question) just comparing opinions. Talked about interview process, timeline, position, etc.

    First round interview was bypassed due to me knowing the hiring manager.

    Second round interview - Skills interview - conducted by a Senior Manager that does not work for the group that I was interviewing for, but has the same technical knowledge and skills just a different group. Interview was scheduled for 60-75 minutes. He outlined the 7 topics he wanted to cover. I answered and got through them in about 40 minutes. For the remainder of the time he asked me to ask any questions and we just talked generally about industry, interests, etc.

    Third round interview - Situational Interview - conducted by a Director not directly involved with the group that I was interviewing for, but works in the same technical silo for a different industry. More questions along the lines of 'tell me about your typical day', 'toughest work situation', 'how do you prioritize multiple projects/tasks', where do you want to be in 5 years, what are you looking to get out of this position, etc.

    Asked to complete background check application.

    Final Confirmation Call - Recruiter gave me the details of the offer and said that a written offer would be extended after verbal acceptance.

    Pressed for me to give response within 1 week, requested 2 weeks as I was considering other offers.

    Interview Questions
    • Toughest questions were when they tried to have me relate what I do now, to what would be expected from me in the new role. (Same industry, slightly different positions/processes)   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Applied for job via university job network. First Round was 1 on 1 behavioral with a manager. Second round was similar, 1 on 1 with a senior manager. Both seemed focused on their stated goal: determining whether or not Accenture was a good fit for the interviewee and and the interviewee a good fit for Accenture. 3rd round interview was a half day at the office - a presentation about the company and then 2 interviews with senior managers. Similar questions and focus, one of the managers seemed to feign ignorance in an attempt to make me uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • I wouldn't say there was 1 really profoundly difficult question, but the process itself - asking questions that might cause you to make a contradiction in your reasons for interviewing with Accenture, was stressful.   View Answers (2)
    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered a position at Amazon with similar compensation, but the Amazon position was hiring 50 people whereas the Accenture position was hiring something in the 100s. For me, the unique and entrepreneurial nature of Amazon won out.
