I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.
Interview Details – Interview process consisted of three interviews. One with a Sr Consultant, one with a Manager or above and one with a Sr. Manager or above. The interview questions ranged anywhere from behavioral to situational/hypothetical questions (ex: how many people are wearing purple shirts right now or how many airplanes are flying over the sky right now). There used to be a one hour case study exam, which was a bit tough to get through in the time allotted, that was used to judge your logic and problem solving skills...but I think they got rid of it.
They also had you do a fake sales pitch/presentation about something you were passionate about. The interviews and questions differ depending on who you have interviewing you.
Interview Question – How many airplanes are flying over the USA right now? It was more challenging than difficult and did challenge your through process which I loved. View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in February 2013.
Interview Details – I had applied through university recruiting. Was called for the First round of interview which lasted for 30 mins. Questions were all behavioral, fairly straight and simple. Cleared the first round and was called for the second round.
This consisted of 3 30 mins interview. Most of the questions were based on resume, behavioral and previous work experience. They seemed more interested in cloud technology on which I had worked.
One 30 minute interview was a case study of a pharmaceutical company.
Company was not doing well, employees demoralized as manager gave appraisal based on current working ways. No database records of employees past work contribution. Sales employees cannot complete training as there is no online training available. Also there data is not available online which makes it difficult to get data of products.
How will you resolve these issues?
Interview went really well and I was very hopeful. Never heard back from them Even after following up none of the recruiters replied.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2012.
Interview Details – Capgemini was at our career fair and invited me to dinner that night. Their recruits were great. I received an on-campus interview the next day for the end of the week. The interview was about half technical and half behavioral. I then received an email from HR that weekend inviting me to an on-site interview with instructions for travel arrangements. Everything went smoothly. The employees were all very friendly and there was one case presented at the beginning of the meeting with all interviewees present. Then there was a series of three interviews: one technical interview related to the case, one general technical period and then a behavioral interview.
Interview Question – The case interview was the most difficult. I did not get there in time to fully go over the case. They did not inform me that there would be one and that I needed to be there early. View Answer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in April 2012.
Interview Details – I was an employee referral which I believe is what got me in the door. I was given a little insight that I may not be a traditional candidate and to have a firm understanding of the consulting lifestyle before interviewing. Phone screen with HR to make sure my background could be applied to consulting, phone interview with manager to better assess fit with industry. In person with 3 interviews that consisted of 2 cases (one informal and one formal) and a final fit interview. Prep for the cases! And if you get stuck, make sure to talk your thinking out with the interviewer. My informal case didn't go well but I didn't give up and I wasn't visibly shaken which I believed helped secure my offer. The formal case was very traditional.
