    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Capgemini (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Yes, I was able to negotiate up in salary and was given an additional bonus.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    They came to our school, I was called for interview which was really easy. No technical questions, it was all behavioral questions.
    Now the worse part, After the interview..they called me next week and told me that I was great in the interview and would like to invite onsite but asked me if I was american citizen.
    I told them No, I am not so they said we are really sorry and emailed me next day that They are pursuing other candidates.
    That is one of the worst policy that they are biased and rejected me because of my nationality. I have another offer now and I know that I will never work for capgemini ever.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing, It was very easy interview. Just be ready to speak and know their core values.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini in November 2013.

    Interview

    Note, I was referred by a Capgemini employee:

    Was initially contacted by a recruiter, she described the position asked me generic questions about my experience and essentially was looking for a feel of how I would work with the hiring manager.

    Then had a phone screen with the hiring manager, he asked me questions on my past experience and what I was looking for. Asked me some technical questions

    Then was brought in for a F2F with the hiring manager, he described the position in detail asked me to draw references. Some repeat questions from my phone screen with him. I have had tougher interviews in past.

    Last round was to meet with account VP. Lasted about 30 minutes, and asked me some generic questions about myself and was more so a feel for how I would fit within the account.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Always counter, they may be willing to counter back if there is room to fit within the budget.
