BDM Interview

BDM
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in April 2014.

Interview Details – Telephone Interview with VP, then follow up interview with SVP and then a case study / interview with VP and Sales Director.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, have very little time to review the case study, but the things that you need to pick out are very easy.
Capgemini are trying to be more private and less private sector, but I am not sure they really know what that means. From the outside it looks quite like one or two individuals trying to change thousands,,,, good luck with that!

Infrastructure Architect Interview

Infrastructure Architect
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Details – Interview process was a telephone interview followed up by a 2:1 interview with a panel of two senior architects. There was a role-play where the two Capgemini people were two senior executives from two merging divisions of a fictional prospective customer. A 45-minute preparation window was given to put together a 15 minute presentation on the prospective customer's scenario. The presentation was designed to show how well you could tailor messages to specific needs and preferences, and to judge content creation and delivery skills.

Interview Question – Why should we do business with Capgemini over everyone else?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was straightforward. They were amenable to compromise but had hard limits that could not be breached. Conformance to HR policies was very strict and not negotiable in any way.

Very Easy Interview

Director Interview

Director
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was approached by email by senior recruiter who had viewed my LinkedIn profile, initial 'phone discussion with recruiter to establish my potential interest. Full job spec supplied after I confirmed possible interest in the role.

As the role was biased towards innovation I submitted my resumé as a PowerPoint presentation, in the expectation that my presentation would be close to those I would have to deliver in-post. This was favourably received and I was invited to a formal interview.

The interview went well but I realised that my decision to wear an expensive suit, shoes, collar and tie did not mirror the interview panel, who were all dressed for business casual.

About ten days after the interview, the senior recruiter called me and ran through a whole list of praise for my experience, skills and interview performance - summarised as being excellent. But then came the killer punch: "we consider that your management presence is not congruent with the needs of the Center."

So, in their words, good enough to do the job but didn't look the part. My conclusion that it was probably my smarter attire, when they expected business casual dress. Or it could have been my age (mid 50s) which, of course, they could not cite legally as a valid reason for rejection.
