    Client Financial Management Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The overall hiring process was fairly smooth for myself. I was contacted by one of the recruiters in the AFS division regarding a position I applied for online. I applied for the position in June and did not hear anything back until around late October. Once I got in contact with the recruiter she set me up for a phone screening that took around 30 minutes. I was then passed onto another recruiteer who then set up an in person interview for the next week. They said the interview would take around 3-4 hours (they are not kidding). I met with 5 different individuals ranging from an individual who was currently sitting in the role all the way up to the Senior manager of a particular division. They are contantly asking you what you learned about AFS as a whole as well as the position from the person in the previous interview so take LOTS of notes. Be prepared to explain in depth everything that is on your resume and how you made an impact doing it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    It started with a friendly and informative phone-screening with a recruiter there. I learned a lot about the role.

    Right after speaking with her I was sent a HireVue interview, where I answered some typed information about myself and did a few recorded interviews with questions like "Tell us about your background and past experience".

    Lastly, it ended with an in-person interview at Arlington, VA. Brief group presentation, a one-on-one behavioral with a senior level manager there (which was nice to get), and finally a one-on-one tech skills review with an employee (just a review, no technical questions asked).

    Phone Screen
    30 min Technical Interview
    30 min HR Interview

    My experience with the recruiter was frustrating. The recruiter initially contacted me via text message, asking if I was interested. After showing interest, they sent an email that told me to expect a call between 10-2 the next day and that the interview would be 3 days from now. The email had links to information to review but links were broken and led to pages with old information. I tried to get back in contact with the recruiter to see if they had sent me the wrong information but I didn't get a response. I ended up not getting a call between 10-2, but rather a few hours after the time frame. During the call we discussed Accenture, what I was looking for. and set an interview date(2 weeks later) and time. I was told I would receive a confirmation email later that day. I didn't receive an email and tried to email the recruiter after waiting 5 days. 3 days after that, I called and left a message as I was setting up other interviews on the same day as the discussed interview day. About 5 days before the interview I received an email to confirm my interview appointment and to expect a call between 5-10 on the day before or 2 days before the interview. The awkward call scheduling, the inability to get in contact with the recruiter, and the seeming lack of attention made everything up to this point very annoying.

    2 days before the interview, the recruiter called me at a bad time and we rescheduled to call at a set time and day. When we got in contact again, we discussed the interview process, all the material I should know, and all the logistics involved for the day. The recruiter was very helpful and informative. Hopefully, my overall experience was just a one off event.
