    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Capgemini in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    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 through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    As far as I know, applicants for both Business Consultant and Technology Consultant positions were notified of their 1st round interviews 2 days before the actual interview date. We were not given any specifics about the format or details of the interview, but 1st round is behavioral and 2nd round is case. There were many current employees ushering in the people to emphasize the collaborative spirit of the company.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't think there were particularly difficult or unexpected questions for the 1st round - behavioral. Just know your resume, know the details of your tasks, responsibilities at your current and previous internships and jobs.   Answer Question

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    There were 3 levels of Interviews. Fairly simple procedure but sometimes stressful.
    At various stages I was asked about my management and leadership skills.
    My second round was slightly more rigorous than the others and this was the round I guess that was the decider in my case.
    My recruiter was pretty responsive and helpful which made the process really easy.

    Negotiation Details
    I was given an offer but later on the recruiter came back mentioning that they cannot approve the offer and he gave me a slightly lower base salary with a joining bonus. This together added up to be more than my initial offer.
