Systems Integration Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Reston, VA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2010.

Interview Details

Submitted my resume through on campus recruiting. Many candidates were selected, so Accenture took over our career center for a Thursday and just had conversational screening interviews. Received feedback that very day and was asked to return tomorrow for an one hour behavioral interview. For the first 30 minutes, my interviewer was acted cold and intimidating and asked difficult questions about how I react to different circumstances. After the 30 minutes were up, she became a different person and we had a nice conversation for the remainder of the process.

Within a week, I received a call back to go to the closest office location where we were served lunch while give a presentation on ACN propaganda and concluded with 2 30-minute interviews. The final of which was with a Partner of the firm where he basically said that his job is to convince me that I want to work for ACN :-)

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Met Accenture at a Career Fair (was looking for them all over and found ten or so minutes before the career fair would end for the day), got an onsight 1st interview for the next day.
                - This will be a screening to get to know you, your attitude, resume, working with teams, and Why Accenture (crucial question for all three steps)
    After one business week I was told I would be moved to the second round. This round was long (1 hour exactly and I was only able to ask one questions because it seemed as if after the one hour the interviewer had other commitments). This interview is completely behavioral so have atleast 3 stories memorized that you can talk about IN DETAIL in regards to team work and how YOU handled things; even though they dont instruct this way but STAR method is best.
    Questions were?
    - Name a time you were a part of a project or something for an extended amount of time (perhaps a project you were apart of from start to finish
    - Tell me about a time you depended one somebody for information (or in general) and they didnt come through
    - Name a time where you had a lot of information and how did you handle it

    I spent atleast 15 minutes on each question so i can minimize the amount of questions interviewer would ask because more and more questions can get repititive
    So we ended with the why Accenture (this was also indirectly asked in the very beginning as well) + one question I asked and the hour was over

    3 busniess days later I was informed I would be moving to the 3rd round a week later (all expense trip to DC location)

    Started with the 1.5-2 hour presentation from 4 current analyst (very nice very laid back)

    Then the interview part; first with manager, then with senior manager (have ALOT of questions prepared, ALOT)

    First interview:
    Asked 2 typical behavioral questions (something like general team work skills, and the wierd questions of name a time things went down South; I was completely in a blank...after all you are trying to impress them...right?)
    My key in this interview was that I kept asking more and more and more questions about the managers experience and about Accenture to steer away from traditional annoying behavioral questions
    ....oh yea and WHY ACCENTURE??? (and are you ok with traveling)

    Second interview: (was alot more formal and frightening)
    Asked like 5 behavioral questions
    - Had conflict with co-worker
    -Unexpected problem and how did you solve
    - A couple others
    - Why Accenture
    - Ok with traveling?
    - Location

    tried to ask same amount of questions but because this interview was so much more formal then the previous one I felt like a panicked a bit

    ....I thought i blew the interview so much...but I got an offer 5 business days later (All praise is to God)

    Hope this helps
    Be confident but not arrogant
    Know your stories and the company
    Be proactive

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with Accenture for a Systems Integration Analyst position on campus (University of Florida) and then in their Arlington office. The process was 4 interviews overall. The first two rounds were held on campus and the last two at their office. All the interviews were pretty standard (background, skills, leadership experience, technical experience and why do you want to work here). They got back to me fairly quickly after each round and said they would get me an offer decision within two weeks after the final interview. I was contacted about 1 week later and received an offer. I took 2 weeks to make a decision and, upon accepting, they let me choose my start date. Overall, the interview process was straight-forward and relaxed with very general behavioral and background questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had a three round approach:

    1st Round was a 15 minute phone conversation about Accenture. The lady didn't even ask about my resume. Asked if I had any questions and that was it

    2nd Round was a 45 minute phone conversation with behavioral questions. I have a few years with management consutling experience, so it was a breeze. Just be prepared to discuss things on your resume.

    3rd Round was an office visit at their new location in Northern Virginia (Ballston). Was a beautiful office. There were about 15 other interviewees that day. They had 5 consultants hanging around answering our questions and then we each met with partners for two 45 minute interviews. These interviews were a little more detailed. They asked resume specific questions and why I was interested in Accenture. One of their biggest questions was why I want to leave my current job. Lastly, we were served lunch and given a presentation about the company/benefits/etc. Was called the next day for an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    They would not negotiate. They said "We really put our best offer forward"
    My offer was $72K/yr with $4k signing bonus. I have a B.S. in Industrial Eng. and have two years of consulting experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume and cover letter via LinkedIn and an employee internal referral. Received a call from a recruiter that same day setting up a phone interview for the following week. The first phone interview was straightforward, asking questions about my resume and why I wanted to go into consulting and why Accenture. It lasted less than 30 min. The same day the recruiter called me and set up a second round phone interview for the following week. The second interview was more behavioral questions. Later that day the recruiter called me back to set up an on site interview for 2 weeks later. When I showed up to the on site interview, I was surprised to find 16 other candidates were also interviewing, for a "few" spots. The on site interview consisted of mingling with the candidates, a presentation and lunch with current employees, and 2 exit interviews with senior executives. The recruiter said they would let us know in 1 - 2 weeks. The recruiter called me the following Monday, two business days later with the offer.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me to apply for this position after I applied online for the same position but in another location. The first two interviews were fairly easy phone interviews and the third one being an office visit. The second interview was definitely more in-depth about your experience in certain situations (i.e. working in a group, overcoming a difficult task, etc.).

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was swift. I was contacted via email by a recruiter, we set up the first interview date. I was interviewed by a manager in Systems Integration. The first interview mostly comprised of reviewing the information on my resume.
    He asked me to walk him through my resume. And then asked me a few questions about my resume and about my interest in Accenture and consulting in general. So you might want to concretise your reasons!

    After the first phone interview, I was contacted to schedule the second phone interview. I've not yet had the second interview. But I know it's going to be more behavioral. I'll be sure to come back and update this once I get the job offer!! :-)
