    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini Consulting.

    Interview

    Three interviews with two Managing Consultants and/or above as well as one VP. One of the managing consultants will perform a case interview, which is not a deal breaker. If you know the VP, it's an advantage to overcome any flags.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini Consulting in May 2015.

    Interview

    This company is a mess. I applied online, and a month later someone in India took 4-5 weeks to schedule a 30 minute call with a recruiter. The call went fine, and I answered everything that is typically asked in a screening call. I was more than qualified for the role, and I am more qualified that most people being hired there (with a better background). Another month went by, and I got a rejection letter thanking me for interviewing with a person I never met, and saying that my skills don't meet the needs of the organization at this time. Really? 3 months for this? Get your act together.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capgemini Consulting in May 2015.

    Interview

    They give you a case study about a medical company, whose employees do not have proper sales information on the road and they do not have proper training. You are asked to find out the specific problems, etc. Then you have two other interviews regarding behavioral and situational questions. This interview made me not want to work for the company. One lady who interviewed me made me have second thoughts about working for them. In a previous interview, an employee told me he enjoyed the work life balance. But when I asked one of the interviewers that question, she responded by saying, "We have one? I have never felt like there is a good work-life balance at all." So regardless of the fact that I was not offered the job, I wouldn't have accepted anyway. I like to work with people who are genuinely excited about working for the company or people who are just fun to be around. That lady who interviewed me in their office was neither of those people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Capgemini Consulting.

    Interview

    I got a referral from an employee and HR was very quick about following up with me. The HR screen was fairly standard- typical behavioral questions. There were no surprises there and I had a fairly good chat with the HR person. The HR person then moved me to the next stage. I was interested in a specific practice area of a local office. HR then scheduled a video conversation with a consultant from a different office in the same practice area. I think I got unlucky with my interviewer. My interviewer was very hard to reach. My interview was not scheduled until the last minute (the day before) and I had sent several emails trying to reach out to them. I got the sense that my interviewer did not have the same criteria for recuirting as the local office did. The consultant screen was fairly standard behavioral questions. Usually there is supposed to be a minicase but I did not get one. I got the sense that even though the local office I was applying to was open to taking people from non-traditional business background (aka non-MBA backgrounds), my particular interviewer was not open to this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini Consulting (New City, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online in January - quick response 2 telephone interviews then schedule on site with EE at Cap Gemini. Contacted quickly to be brought back to meet HR and panel for department - and then the organization went dead. No contact, no offer or decline of candidacy. Position still posted. Worst respect from any HR or organization by leaving candidates hanging. They should be ashamed of themselves. I would not want to work for an organization like that if they even came back to me with an offer.
