    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 months - interviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing as such. It was mostly experience based.   View Answer
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college's On Campus Recruiting program, and received a first round interview. This was held at my college's career center and involved a one to one conversation with a Senior Manager. Upon advancing to the second and final round, I was invited to interview at Capgemini's Jersey City office. Here, I was interviewed 3 times, back to back, with employees of varying experience and industry exposure. The interview questions were generally straightforward. This process took about 3 weeks.

    Then, 3 weeks later, I received my offer via email, and was given 4 weeks to accept/decline. I accepted.

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    My interviewer was a foreign guy (Russian, I think) who was not part of the consulting practice. He worked in the tech side of the business. He asked a series of boilerplate behavioral questions, wrote down my answers, and generally acted disinterested. They had numerous interview rooms going and it generally felt very impersonal.
