Test Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Accenture in June 2014.

Interview Details

I received a phone call several months after applying on line. The recruiter provided a lot of information about the company and mentioned I would be considered for a few different positions. A few weeks later I was contacted via email to arrange an in-person interview but didn’t know for which position. The first person I meet with was a supervisor. He asked about my experience with testing software and I got positive feedback from him. I then met his boss. The first thing this person said was that I didn’t fit what they were looking for and then only asked a few general questions. I followed up about 2 weeks later and was told I wasn’t being considered. The time from applying and the in-person interview was several months. The environment seemed relaxed and the people friendly.

Interview Questions
  • None of the questions were that difficult, nothing overly technical. The biggest problem I had was the terminology. In my experience, we used different terms for the same testing process.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I got an interview from Employee referral. After 1 telephone interview they thought my skill set is not direct match for Test Analyst role and i am more suitable for Java developer role (no Java on my resume). After another telephone interview they call me for onsite interview. I drove to San Antonio from Houston. After onsite interview they felt i am not good for Java Developer role and referred me again for Test Analyst role. I had phone interview did not hear after that it's been two weeks. I am very dissapointed send emails to HR no response from her

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accenture in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process starts off as with phone interview to gauge if you are serious about the job or just spamming resumes everywhere. If that goes well, they'll arrange an on-site interview which may require you to make plans to travel there if you're not from the same city. On the day of the interview, it will begin with a skills assessment which is basically an awareness test of attention to detail. They will walk you through various scenarios and you will need to tell them back to the interviewer with as much detail as you remember. There are some made up as you go as well. After this skills test, you are interviewed by the capability lead, which in this case is the test lead. You're basically hired if you make it here. He's basically just testing the extent of your knowledge so as you gauge how valuable a resource you will be to the company.

    Interview Questions
    • As part of the first interviewer's skills assessment: Describe in as much detail as you remember, how you got here (the interview) from the time you left your door this morning.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that given my experience set, I did not want to be pigeonholed into a pure testing role for the first two years of my existence at a large firm such at Accenture when my interests laid more in IT strategy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Accenture in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email from a recruiter stating when would be a good time to set up a phone interview with the recruiter. Emailed the recruiter back, and he quickly emailed back saying he would call at the given time. I got the call from the recruiter, basically just going over my resume and skills. At the end of the conversation the recruiter asked what day would be convenient for me to come in for an on-site interview, which was about 3 days later. The recruiter sent me directions on how to get to Accenture, the names of the people I would be interviewing me (one interviewer will be conducting a personality/behavioral interview, the other interviewer would be conducting a skills test).

    The first interviewer that was conducting a personality/behavioral interview was AWESOME! I had mentioned to the interviewer that I was nervous, but the interviewer was great at making me feel comfortable. It was about a 20-30 minute conversation and then the interviewer left the room so the second interviewer can come in.

    I sat in the conference room for about 10 mins and the second interviewer (hiring manager) came in for my "skills" interview. Very rude and weird. He took a phone call in the middle of a interview, seriously?!. He left at the end of the interview, to take the phone call outside the room. Finally he came back in and told me that the recruiter would be in touch with me, then took off. It was about 40-50 mins long for the skills interview.

    I got a call 4 days later from the recruiter saying that they were going to pass on me. I was so relieved! However, it was a great learning experience; from the second interview I learned that it was going to be tough and competitive in order to get this job, but I wouldn't change anything I said or did, I gave it my best effort.
