    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Series of phone interviews and a final set of on-site interviews. Very formal and straight forward interviews. Contacted and informed of each step of the process by recruiter. Interview questions and types of interviews explained in detail over the phone.

    On-Site interview was conducted with a number of other candidates for other positions. Information section and then break off into separate interviews with Accenture employees. The Accenture employees were able to give a more personal interview as apposed to an HR interview.

    Beautiful facilities with a great atmosphere. Great for entry level job seekers.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Recruiting with Accenture was a relatively easy process. I really enjoyed the people I met and the company seems to invest a lot in its new hires. None of the interviews were too difficult -- the important thing is to know which type of consulting fits your personality/interests. The process for me:

    Round 1 - 30-minute "screening" interview (on campus)
    Round 2 - 45-minute behavioral interview
    Round 3 - two 45-minute behavioral interviews

    In the end, I simply had more exciting offers. I was invited to join their IT Strategy & Transformation group.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted almost immediately after applying for the position. Spoke briefly with a general recruiter (that reviewed applications) who then assigned me to my "official" recruiter. My official recruiter contacted me via email and set up a phone interview with a specific employee. It was stated in the confirmation that it would be a behavioral interview. Behavioral interview was about 45 minutes long. Typical behavioral interview questions- nothing to be overly concerned about. Just be prepared for the usual. Recruiter contacted me again stating I had been selected for an in person interview in the Arlington office. My interview was scheduled for 1230 in Arlington. I was there from 1230-430. (Four 1 hour interviews) First interview- overview of the position. Second interview- starting to get into skills, review of the position. Third interview- some behavioral, skill questions. Fourth interview- Overview of everything stated, questions about experience, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in November 2012.

    Interview

    The process was based in four rounds of interviews:
    The first round was simple and focused in my resume. It took me like 25 min. of informal talked.
    The second was one of the harder interviewe that I ever had, I started to sweat with all behavioral questions, my interviewer was an ex-militar and an execiutive manager with 15 yrs of experience so for me was challenge, but if you stay calm and demonstrate security about yourself you will pass.
    after the second one they took me to an in-site visit on D.C. and after a short presentation of the benefits of the company, the third and four interviewe started.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in July 2012.

    Interview

    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

    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.
