I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capgemini (Jersey City, NJ) in May 2015.
Was offered $12/hr for a bilingual certification position, this cant be right?The recruiter was slow, and took a while to respond to emails and calls. Seems weird an IT desk bilingual position would pay so little

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini (New York, NY) in March 2015.
Encountered Cap at a career fair and then attended their info session at the university. Really showed a lot of interest by asking the recruiters a lot of questions and networking. Also spoke to them through email. Was invited for first round interviews. This was a short 1 on 1 interview. Very comfortable and enjoyable. Really try to understand your personality and if you'll be a fit. Its a behavioral interview. The second interview took place a few weeks later. This was a day with 3 interviews. One of these interviews is a case study about a company wanting to improve sales. The other two were again, interviews to see how you fit. Very little has to do with your qualifications. It has more to do with how you work with others and your leadership and initiative. The turnaround time was the worst part. They said they would get back in 2 weeks but actually took almost 6 weeks. The people you talk to are great and make you feel very comfortable.
- If you had to design an "iFan", how would you go about it? If I gave you an unlimited amount of money as an investment, what would you do with it? Tell me about yourself. Why Cap? Why consulting? What differentiates us from competitors? How would you persuade a client to use Capgemini’s services? How do you balance priorities? Why consulting? Resume rundown? What have you done to better yourself? Talk about a time when you went above and beyond. Long term goals. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini (New York, NY) in March 2014.
I met first with a recruiter at my university's career fair, where I submitted my resume. I attended an on-campus information session (in New York City) where I gave my resume to an employee in the Financial Services consulting division. I was contacted shortly after for an HR phone interview (basic questions like salary expectation), then a second phone interview with a member of the practice who asked questions about my experience, why Capgemini, what can you bring to this position, etc. After over two weeks of waiting I was called in for an in-person interview. A case study was provided several days prior to the interview, which we were to present. My presentation took about an hour. The second in-person interview (on the same day) involved tests of presentation skills, defending an argument, persuading someone to accept your argument and other questions related to your experience and how it relates to the position.
- Using this whiteboard or a piece of paper, explain to me why I should hire you. Case study given several days prior to the interview that was 5-6 pages long involving data sets and a fictive e-mail correspondence between employees at a bank. There were no direct instructions, but we were told to prepare a presentation analyzing the issues in the case. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2013.
I had applied through university recruiting. Was called for the First round of interview which lasted for 30 mins. Questions were all behavioral, fairly straight and simple. Cleared the first round and was called for the second round. This consisted of 3 30 mins interview. Most of the questions were based on resume, behavioral and previous work experience. They seemed more interested in cloud technology on which I had worked. One 30 minute interview was a case study of a pharmaceutical company. Company was not doing well, employees demoralized as manager gave appraisal based on current working ways. No database records of employees past work contribution. Sales employees cannot complete training as there is no online training available. Also there data is not available online which makes it difficult to get data of products. How will you resolve these issues? Interview went really well and I was very hopeful. Never heard back from them Even after following up none of the recruiters replied.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capgemini (New York, NY) in January 2013.
Extraordinarily friendly, engaging, and intelligent recruiter who provided a detailed description of the position. The next discussion was with the practice leader who was very experienced in industry. We agreed that another opportunity would be best. Nonetheless, it was a worthwhile interview experience.
