I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in April 2015.
The HR recruiters that I dealt with were very helpful and professional. The technical skills over the phone interview was shorter than I had anticipated, consisting of one general logic- assessing problem, and a couple of fairly easy programming problems.

I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in January 2015.
1) 1 hour phone interview with HR, 2) 1 hour technical interview (phone), The technical guy just asked me broad technical questions about the technologies on my resume. 3) 1 hour behavioral interview with manager (webcam). The final round interview was the 1 hour behavioral interview. Think STAR Relatively easy. I didn't prepare for anything.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in May 2014.
There was a 15 minute interview with HR over the phone. Then there was a second interview about an hour where they asked 4 questions name a time when... Then there would be an on-site interview if the two phone interviews went well. They told me the interview process from the beginning which was helpful. They also will let you know promptly if you don't get the position. The whole process took about a week or so, but I believe if you apply earlier in the semester it can take significantly longer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in April 2013.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in January 2013.
1. Contacted an employee in the company to refer me 2. Recruiter called to ask which positions I wanted to apply for 3. Another recruiter called to match my resume skills to the job description 4. Hiring manager called and conducted a situational-based interview. The questions were simple i.e. Name a time you had to deal with a difficult classmate, have you ever been in a project with a tight deadline 5. Flew to DC on my own dime to have a interview with an analyst, specialist, and manager in the duration of 3 hours.

The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in June 2012.
I was contacted by a recruiter within a week of applying to their position online. They asked me general background, experience and personality questions and discussed the next steps in the process: 3 more phone interviews -- a skill one, a behavioral one, and a web conference. The skills interview was scheduled very quickly after the initial interview, however, it was on a late Monday and I had a bad feeling about it, because generally Mondays are stressful and I didn't want to be interviewed after someone had a bad day. I had good reason to be worried. The person who called me for the skill interview had not even looked at my resume (he was surprised that I had a certification in a field that they were interviewing me for and it was the basis for the interview itself). So naturally, he didn't ask me any questions about my 3 year experience in this area. Instead, he shot 3 quick scenario questions at me, to which I replied trying to give him real-life examples that I've had that closely resembled his scenario. He didn't like my answers and kept asking me to paraphrase them, so they fit whatever answer sheet he seems to have printed. He didn't seem to be a good subject matter expert, either, because he kept confusing key terminology and it seemed that he had printed questions/answers from somewhere and was trying to get an answer that is exactly as it appeared in front of him. We ended with me asking him a couple of questions, but seeing his abrupt and one-word answers, I got the feeling that he will not be recommending that I get hired, anyway, so I left it at that. Accenture is a good company, but it would be nice that the people who conduct interviews at least read the applicants resume or be interested in their experience. I don't think I will be getting an offer from them, but am pursuing other endeavors.

The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in June 2012.
First interview was very straight forward - asked to describe my activities in the last four years, why I wanted to go into the business world with an engineering degree, why Accenture, etc... Second interview was also fairly straight forward - set up a phone interview with a senior exec on the HR team to talk about different situations and how I handled them. Received confirmation of third round in office interview.

The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in March 2012.
A friend recommended me and submitted my resume. Within a day, I had received a call to schedule my first interview with the recruiter. She was incredibly helpful and eager to get me to join Accenture. 1 week later she came back and said I wasn't determined to be a good fit for the original position I applied for, but instead they wanted me to apply for another position (completely irrelevant to my skill set). Said I wasn't interested but would like to find another position. Never heard anything back after that.
