Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.
Interview Details – Very straight forward. Took three weeks to finish. Everyone was nice and helpful. Office is very well organized. The first round was a phone screen. The second round had a case study and a presentation. Offer was announced the day after.
Interview Question – What other career options are you considering? Answer Question
Staff Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through college or university and interviewed at Capgemini.
Interview Details – Includes and on-campus interview, and a series of 3 in-office interviews (on the same day). One is a basic case study.
Interview Question – Business case is pretty basic - seems the thought process is more important than the actual answer. One interviewer really threw me off by acting distracted/disinterested/interrupting, but this seemed to be more of a behavioral interview. View Answer
Project Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Question – How can your previous experience in managing IT projects that are not related to software development help us Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Difficult. Whatever the recruiter promises, is not what they offer. Confirm salary and posiiton in paper, before accepting the offer
Project Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Capgemini in April 2012.
Interview Details – Phone interview with a recruiter, then an on site interview with the management/peers. Office is nice, people seem professional, and seem to be excited/enjoy working for Capgemini. Overall a very positive experience, got me excited for the opportunity to work for this company.
Interview Question – Being asked to describe a distant memory from school. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I am a new hire so it was straightforward. They have a "fresher" salary.
Program Manager Intern – Supply Chain Operations Position Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied 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.
Interview Question – Name a time where you have failed. View Answer
Staff Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and 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.
Interview Question – 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. It lists several specific problems and prioritizes the company's goals for the project, it then gives you about 10 options to choose from and have you pick the 3 that would best serve the clients goals. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate up in salary and was given an additional bonus.
Associate Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.
Interview Details – I applied through a college career center website, and I got called in to interview on campus a few weeks later. Outside of the interview room, additional Capgemini consultants were there to answer any questions/introduce yourself to before the actual interview. Everyone was extremely personable and friendly. The actual interview, however, was really awkward. My interviewer asked a lot of random situational questions that seemed really off the wall. The gaps between questions were uncomfortable…it just wasn't a good interview to say the least. Pretty unfortunate as well because the job sounded like something I would have loved.
Interview Question – Do you feel it is important to work with people of many different cultures and backgrounds? Why? (or something like that) Answer Question
Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
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
Negotiation Details – Not much room for negotiation. Same with my colleagues
