Interviewed at Accenture

Interview Details – I applied for the job through the university's career center job postings and about a week later got an on-campus interview with Accenture. There was a pre-interview night that was very pleasant and relaxing. I got to talk with the alumni of the university that now work for Accenture, and everyone I talked to were friendly and informative. The interview had the typical questions you would see in any interview.

Technology Consultant Interview

Technology Consultant
Ithaca, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accenture in April 2013.

Interview Details – I had an initial phone screen, where I answered some basic questions regarding my interest in working for Accenture and some of the extracurricular activities I did as a student. After I passed that, I gave a phone behavioral/experience interview. There, I was grilled about my general experience doing consulting work. For example, I was asked about one time I had to manage a very large amount of data, or about one time I managed a project to meet a deadline.

Interview Question – I personally had a really tough time with the latter interview because my background is in mechanical engineering, so most of my experience was not really applicable to consulting or technology. The interview was supposed to be an hour long, but it ended after about 40 minutes because I basically ran out of things to talk about. I think an operations research major would be more adequately prepared for an entry-level interview with Accenture.   Answer Question

Technology Consultant Interview

Technology Consultant
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2013.

Interview Details – I applied via website for a position in Washington D.C. I received a phone call a few days later, which was a simple resume/phone screen. Second interview was more in-depth. About 4-5 questions simple behavioral questions that led into further details depending on your response. A few days later I received a phone call from my initial recruiter inviting me to the final round interview in Chicago, IL. They flew me over and covered all expenses. Put up in Hard Rock Hotel, which was awesome. The next morning, there were three other candidates. They believed that if we made it this far (to the final round), we were pretty much in as long as we maintained our composure as we did during the second round. The third round interview consisted of a short ice breaker, breakfast, an hour long presentation about Accenture, and two interviews 1:1 with managers/executives. My first interview was extremely relaxed, it was more like a conversation than anything. My second interview was similar to the second round interview but barely as in-depth. Ask questions to show that you're interested! I can't remember any questions, sorry!

Interview Question – Tell me about a time ...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Offer was competitive

Also, even though I applied for the D.C. Metro area with a position in the Data Entry group, I was placed in New York Metro area in another group. So I think as long as you make it there and they want you, you will get your #1 location.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – I have heard that there are three interviews, all of which are pretty relaxed. They will question your character and life experience with groups and such more so than anything else. No real coding questions or anything involving what you will be doing; all personality questions. Since there are 3 interviews, they will be able to ask a variety of behavioral questions, since they focus solely on that aspect.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in September 2012.

Interview Details – I just completed my three-step process for Accenture interview. I will give some details that might help someone in my shoes. I applied at the Accenture website and was contacted by a recruiter in Chicago. She emailed me and asked from my transcripts, as this was an entry-level position. She schedule me for a first round interview with her.

1st round – 20 min interview and mainly talked about my resume. One of the questions she asked was about my extracurricular activities as a student and what was my role in it. Also, What type of research I had done about Accenture. She emailed and confirmed the second round interview the same day (within couple of hours).

2nd round- this is a situation round and they want us to describe specific situations. It mainly had 4 situational questions with multiple follow-up questions for each situation. Each of the situational questions are divided in areas such as teamwork, difficult problem, conflict in a team and meet deadlines. My recommendation is to read all the questions on glass door and write down the answers for it. It really helped me prepare for it. In 3-4 business days I got the confirmation that I have passed this round and would need to fly down to Chicago for an in-person interview.

3rd round – First hour is a lunch and learn session with senior consultants giving insights into the company. It covered areas such as company history, core values, benefits, clients, career counselors, mentors, training, etc. After that I had two 1X1 round interview with senior manager. The first manager I talked to was not very friendly and asked me a lot of questions. I mainly talked about my projects, teamwork, meeting deadlines, etc. Pretty much I gave the same answers I did in my second round. The questions were very similar to second round. The second manager I interviewed with was very friendly and it was so much of fun. He pretty much asked the same questions about the areas I mentioned earlier. Both of them gave me around 15 min to ask questions to them. Make sure these questions are well thought out and should revolve round technology consulting and the company.

Another important tip – The questions on this site under Accenture interview questions are very similar to what they ask in the interview, so make sure you write down the answers for each one of them.

Overall, the interview experience was excellent. I wish other companies follow their lead on how to conduct interviews. They are very professional in dealing with their candidates.

I have not received a job offer yet but eagerly waiting for a response! Hopefully it’s a positive one!
