    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three rounds. The first round was an on-campus 30 minute interview, the second was an on-site interview in the Atlanta office and consisted of three 30 minute interviews. The final round was a phone interview with a senior partner that lasted around 30 minutes. The questions were fairly standard behavioral based, the only exception being a case study during the on-site interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were not that difficult, mainly behavioral based. The case study was not difficult either. The only one that was somewhat difficult asked was "How do you think you will handle the coding, since your background is not in computer engineering?"   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiation. Same with my colleagues

    • What makes you better than all of our other candidates? Proceeded to answer this question several times as the interviewer kept shooting down my responses.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You are able to negotiate a little bit, but I was unaware of this at the time my offer was extended. You can also negotiate starting date. I recommend starting earlier in the summer than in August, as there are three starting classes for the summer new hires.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini in January 2013.

    Interview

    The process was straightforward and fast. I got a call-in directly cause of an in-house recommendation. The later boss as well as an additional employee both introduced themselves and the company extensively and let me decide where i want to emphasize my CV first. A few basic technical questions where given where the solution was less important as how you approached it.

    Interview Questions

    • CV gaps or entries outside the "norm" will be questioned   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    they met my first demand and told me that was their average entry salary for my education... could not really differentiate if this was true or not. It may be worth your while to discuss contract details or some form of benefits if this happens to you because you can not ask for more directly after you told them what you expected.
