    Systems Integration Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in October 2013.

    Interview

    First interview was on campus about 30 minutes. Mostly a get to know you type interview with questions like What do you do in your free time when you aren't studying or in class? What are your hobbies? It was very laid back. Mostly to see if you're somebody they would want to hang out with and to see if they could put you in front of a client. Called back later the same day for a second round interview the next day. Second interview was all behavioral, no cases. Standard behavioral questions such as Tell me about the most significant project you've worked on? Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker? Why consulting/Accenture? Have a story prepared for all sorts of these questions, use the STAR method and you'll be fine. A few days later they called with an invitation to onsite interviews. Onsite interview consisted of a presentation from some current analysts and consultants. This was about an hour and a half. They will answer tons of questions and are a valuable resource to understand the company. Next there are two interviews. One with a Senior Manager and one with a Manager. My first one was with a Senior Manager and it was mostly more behavioral questions. However, this time they answered a lot of follow up questions and wanted more detail to answers so be prepared for that. The second interview was with a manager and was extremely casual and short. Questions were more along the lines of What's your biggest concern with Accenture? Are you okay with traveling? Basically if you make it to the third round the job is yours to lose. Just be yourself, smile, and be confident. Received a final job offer about two weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the most significant project you've worked on?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer seemed to be firm which is fine because the salary was for a lot more than I was expecting.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through university career website. There were three rounds of interviews. First two rounds are on campus. Rounds 2 and 3 are behavioral. First round is a review of your resume and is very conversational. Second round consists of 3-4 questions. Questions center around four topics (Teamwork, Conflict Resolution, Time Management, Problem Solving). Third round is on-site in which you sit through a hour presentation then proceed to two interviews by higher level management. Those interviews are similar to the second round. I received a call for the offer from the recruiter about 3 weeks later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. It wasn't that bad. I was recruited at a career fair at my university in Sept. First, I had an on-campus interview at our career center. It was basically a resume review session. Then I was called back for a phone interview which was about an hour and a half. These were more behavioral questions, like "tell me about a time when...". Finally, I was called for an on-site interview in DC, which is really just a confirmation that you're a good fit personality-wise. (If you get called to the 3rd interview, you pretty much got the job). They offered me the position in November.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in August 2013.

    Interview

    3 total parts 1 - initial phone screen with HR rep. 2 - phone interview with actual project lead (about a week after phone screen) 3 - in person interview with director of project (about a week after phone interview) Everyone was very helpful and the process was not difficult. It was one of the easier interviews I had been through, but that may be because I was not being hired for a management consultant role and was an experienced hire rather than a recent grad they that they may scrutinize more.

    Interview

    Phone screen first, very short about 10 mins Got second behavioral phone interview very soon consist four common questions such as team work, teammate experience, project management skill etc with in depth follow up question, this one took about 40-60 mins Then scheduled a on site from 10:30 am-2 pm The on site was very relaxed, was given a presentation first about the company and everything followed by two management 1:1 interview. Honestly, this on site interview was really easy compare to the second interview. The two interview manager was very nice and the conversation was super relaxed! Basically we talked about fun stuff through out the whole time with only 1 or 2 simple questions I have answered during second interview. Overall experience was good, but since I applied on line so it took a while I guess if you apply through campus recruiting will be much faster. New facility! Looks great!
