    Staff Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Pre-Interview Stage:
    Essentially, the key is to meet and talk to as many people as you can, as often as you can, and the way to do this is to go to as many events as you can; career fair booth (a must), meet and greet (possible to skip, but why give up on free pizza?), and the orientation (a must). If enough people like you, you will be considered for an on-campus interview.

    On-Campus Interview:
    More than likely, this will be conducted by someone who has been with the company for about a year to two years. Experienced staff consultant to senior consultant level. Will ask mainly questions about resume, why consulting, what do you know about Capgemini, what do you know about consulting. Essentially the standard boiler plate consulting-type questions. I don't remember this interview being essentially difficult.

    On-Site Interview:
    If you are selected to move forward, you will be invited on-site for 2-3 1:1 interviews. It has definitely changed since I was extended an offer. These interviews are conducted by more senior people; experienced managers to principal-level. Depending on who you get paired up with depends on how your interview will go; I was paired up with someone who tried to see if I was lying about my programming background and kept on asking more and more specific questions. The other interviewer wanted to see how I thought on my feet and asked me a lot of hypothetical questions. I've heard tales of some interviewers just flat out trying to see if they could get their interviewees to cry.

    Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview Details

    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

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview Details

    They first came to campus, and they conducted a 45 minute interview in person. It was a basic behavioral based interview. They just wanted to assess your personality, behavior, and qualifications.

    They followed up a week later with an interview on site. It consisted of three interviews, and they took about 30-40 minutes each. The last interview contained a case study and questions. Most questions were behavioral, company, and industry related to see if you could fit into their culture. They wanted to assess your desire to hold the job, and whether it would be a good fit for you. They also wanted to assess your qualifications and behaviors.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was straightforward. They emailed me and gave me available times to pick from. I sent a reply back as courteous as possible. The interview was difficult for me because I was very unprepared. The interview had very standard and straightforward questions in it, but they often threw me for a loop.

    Staff Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Capgemini in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met a Principle at a campus recruiting event. He gave me his contact information, I reached out and got no response but was invited to do an on campus interview about two weeks later.

    On campus interview was simple and behavioral and was mostly based on the content of my resume. The interviewer was serious and asked intermediately difficult questions about strategies used at my previous internships and jobs. I was contacted about a week later by email and invited to the final round at the Atlanta office.

    Final round consisted of three interviews. You are assigned a "buddy" that hangs out with you in-between, possibly evaluating you on social skills etc. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes and increased in difficulty and intensity. The first interviewer was behavioral, very relaxed and conversational, basically just asks high level questions about yourself and your resume. The second interviewer was stand-offish and challenged almost every single job or claim on my resume. He points out everything that is wrong with your resume and makes you defend it. The third interviewer was conducted by two more senior level guys. They try to be extremely intimidating right off the bat. They challenge why you think you want to be a consultant, why you think you want to work at Cap, why you stand out from other candidates etc. They give you a case study which you must complete on the spot. After I completed it they told me I was exactly correct and the attitude completely changed and it felt like a first round behavioral interview.

    • Case Study - Scenario is that a company hires Cap to outfit their traveling salesmen with new technology to solve a set of issues they are experiences.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a total of 3 phone interviews on 3 separate occasions. Then I had an in office interview which I met 4 more people. The interview process was pretty straight forward. There wasn't any trick question. I guess they just wanted to see if I am comfortable and easy to talk to.

    Staff Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Capgemini through my university careers website. I soon had a preliminary phone "screening," which was simple enough. Very general and basic behavioral questions, and the person asked me to elaborate on some of the more unique aspects of my resume, like my study abroad experience. About 10 minutes after the call ended, I received an email from that exact person letting me know that they were forwarding my application on to the next and final round, the office interview in Atlanta. They were also kind enough to give me some feedback on my interview skills.

    When the day for the final round of interviews arrived, I showed up at the office and the session began with a warm welcome and mixing session over breakfast with some Capgemini staff. This was to be followed with three interviews. The first interview involved a very easy case and some behavioral questions. The gentleman interviewing me seemed to be impressed with most of my responses.

    The second interview is where I think I lost the job offer. From the moment my interviewer walked in, it seemed like he had already decided he didn't like me. He smirked the entire time, was arrogantly dismissive of some of my responses, and even answered his phone in the middle of the interview. It was kind of shocking. I had read of interviews like this occurring, and kind of not believing it but it was exactly what happened to me and seemed to be out of my control.

    The third interviewer was a very nice and casual lady who spoke to me about where my strengths would fit in the company. The way she was talking was definitely more of like a "when" you get an offer, not "if."

    A few weeks later I got an email late in the evening letting me know that I would not be receiving an offer. It was still a good experience.

    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.
