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.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Capgemini in March 2012.

Interview Details – They had an on-campus interview. I was then invited to their second round interviews. They were really nice. The office was so chill, but it was still very professional. They give you a "peer buddy" who already works at Capgemini, and they take you to each of your interviews. There are three interviews with senior-level executives. It was just your typical one on one interview.

Interview Question – How do you feel about working in large teams? (80+ people)   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I took a job in DC, but I would have picked Capgemini if they offered me a job first.

The process took a day - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2011.

Interview Details – My interviewer was a foreign guy (Russian, I think) who was not part of the consulting practice. He worked in the tech side of the business. He asked a series of boilerplate behavioral questions, wrote down my answers, and generally acted disinterested. They had numerous interview rooms going and it generally felt very impersonal.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you've worked with a multicultural group.   Answer Question

The process took 5 days - interviewed at Capgemini in March 2010.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume via my university's website. I was offered an interview. The interview was behavioral with questions that can be answered in the STAR format. This was a consulting job, so make sure you understand how the industry works. Questions like, "what is your biggest weakness" and "tell me about a time..." take up most of the interview.
