    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    Interview was fairly relaxed. Some competency based questions that I had to spend a little more time thinking about, but it didn't feel like they were trying to catch me out. As people have said previously the group exercise is also pretty straightforward, just make sure you include everyone.

    Lead Consultant - Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Capgemini (London, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Initial telephone interview with standard questions around knowledge of Capgemini, quick Cv run through, why consulting, reasons for leaving, motivations, what would you bring to Cap, etc.
    Invited to the next stage - a 6 hour Talent Selection Event comprising of Company presentation, 1.5 hour interview including short case study given on the day followed by detailed group case study exercise (20 mins reading time, 45-50 minutes of prep, 30 min presentation and Q & A). Final part of this event was a networking event with other consultants at the firm.

    Was given 15 min prep/read time for the short case study, and the interviewer would then want to discuss my views on the questions given. In my case, I was supposed to be a programme manager setting up a programme - my approach to setting it up.

    For the group case study, try to get through the material as quickly as possible focussing on key facts rather than distractions. The time provided is deliberately limited to see how you handle large amounts of info in a short amount of time. Be prepared to explain your recommendation for the solution to their problem and the reasons why you have ruled out others.

    In the end I was made a verbal offer the next day itself and I was shocked to hear it was over 10% BELOW my current compensation! For spending this amount of time interviewing, you certainly expect better treatment and atleast a respectable offer. Declined!

    -3.3) Individual case

    Technology Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Capgemini (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward application process, everyone I spoke with at Capgemini throughout the process was incredibly kind and friendly.

    4-step processes which included:
    1) Online application
    2) Situational test
    3) Telephone interview
    4) Assessment centre

    Online application contained the usual stuff, personal information, why Capgemini, why the industry etc...

    The situational test was straightforward, its not one of those tests where there is a right/wrong answer and a couple hours after you finish it, they send you a feedback form with your top 3 strengths which I thought was a nice touch.

    Telephone interview was about 30 minutes long, 5 minutes in I had forgotten it was an interview and it seemed more like a friendly chat. Questions included, why did I choose my University? Why Capgemini? Why are you interested in technology? As well as a few competency-based questions.

    I was offered the assessment centre a couple of days after my interview, however it took them almost 3 months to give me an exact date. Capgemini reimbursed some of my accommodation and travels.

    The day was comprised of; a group exercise, presentation of a case study (which you are given a week before) and an interview with 2 members of senior management. Luckily for me, my interview slot was at the end of the day, whereas some candidates had interviews straight away. The feel of the offices was great and everyone their was very friendly and open to questions. Since all the interviews were not done at once, some ice breakers are arranged to pass the time and get to know the other candidates which was nice. The group exercise involved reading a 15 page case study and then as a group coming up with solutions/strategies for the company in question, this I found to be the hardest part of the day as striking the right balance between being too bossy and too quiet can be difficult in a competitive situation, especially when there are about 8 assessors watching you. The presentation is straightforward if you are well prepared, however expect questions mid presentation and not at the end like I was expecting. Straight after the presentation you go onto your interview which is mainly strength-based and really seemed more like a chance to get to know you as a person.

    Overall, I would say it was a good experience and if you're prepared, you`ll do just fine!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    I filled out the application form online before being invited to undertake the situational strengths test. The situational strengths test posed a number of scenarios and I had to rank my responses between most likely to do and least likely to do. A number of the responses were very similar and was therefore was difficult to determine the appropriate response. Within a few hours of completing the test, I received an email highlighting my three greatest strengths (Agile, Networker, Active Ownership) and ideas on how to develop these skills further which I thought was a great bit of feedback.

    online application form consisting of specific questions relating to you and your skills.

Then got online testing and then invited for phone interview. Was asked about myself entirely and not about the company. Interview was about 30 min. Have been asked to next round of interview but don't have a date yet.
