    Junior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Acando Consulting (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)).

    Interview

    I started by applying online where after 2 weeks I was called to a case and personal interview. Around 10-15 other candidates where there and all did individual interviews and case interviews, it all took around 2-3 hours. I was then called back for group assessment day. First we were decided into two groups where we where asked to build a tower made of lego and follow instructions to get as many points as possible. When we were done we got group feedback and a second chance to do the task. Then we were split into two new groups and asked to come up with a solution for a imaginary client and then present it to him.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acando Consulting (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Step 1: Group session with approximatly 30 other young talents. They put you to test with two different group cases. The first one is about building a high tower with lego. The second is a business case where your group has 90 minutes to analyze, come up with a solution and prepare a presentation.

    Step 2: Individual case where you have 15 minutes to solve a case and prepare a presentation.

    Step 3: I didn't come this far but I think they're holding individual interviews.

    IT Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acando Consulting.

    Interview

    I applied through the website and the answer came within about a week. The communications were good and they were nice.

    They didn't seem to be correlated on what qualities they were looking for in the candidate. I have a very certain profile that is not classic for consultancy firm employee. The first guy I met was very nice and impressed by my profile and sent me on to a second interview with his manager. The second interview included a business case where he was looking for a very specific answer according to business school models. I have an MBA but if you are not straight out of business school then you might not remember the textbook answer and go with a more real life open ended strategy way of thinking which is not what they are looking for. Also he was arrogant and overall not nice. It took over a week before I got the unfriendly 2 sentence email that they are moving forward with other applicants.

    IT Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hamburg (Germany)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Acando Consulting (Hamburg (Germany)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Es gab erst ein Telefoninterview und dann ein persönliches Vorstellungsgespräch. Meine Interviewpartner waren sehr nett und offen. Das Gespräch war angenehm, allerdings gab es Stressfragen im Bezug auf "unangenehmere" Punkte im Lebenslauf, wie ich es bis dato noch in keinem Gespräch erlebt habe, und es wurde ein wenig Fachwissen abgefragt. Mir kam das Unternehmen als solches leicht arrogant vor, da immer wieder betont wurde, wie stolz man sei, groß zu sein und bald möglicherweise von einer größeren Consulting-Firma aufgekauft zu werden, dabei gehört Acando ganz klar nicht zu den ganz großen Unternehmen. Die kleinere Konkurrenz wurde schlecht gemacht. Es wurde klargemacht, dass Acando zwar einsteigerfreundlich ist, aber dass von neuen sehr viel erwartet ist, man sehr ehrgeizig sei und "auf Leistung aus".
