Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture.

Interview

There were a couple of phone interviews some were technical related specifically around Java development. There was 1 in-person "interview" which was really a see you in person once for about 5 minutes with no real questions asked, although an oppertunity to answer questions. It was a new grad situation so not much needed I guess.

Interview Questions

  • Describe if you would rather be an expert in a field or generalist.   1 Answer

Negotiation

Very little room for negotiation. Start date even wasn't negotiable, despite a long-distance move with a move package that didn't fully cover the move.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I received a call and was asked to participate in 2 phone interviews the very next day! The phone interviews were case studies: 1 financial and the other was a critical thinking scenario. The next week I had an in-person case study and in-person behavioral interview. In total: 4 different interviews by 4 different people. They really want to see how you think....problem solving skills....your attitude and effort.. Advice to anyone interviewing: .it's okay to get the wrong answer...just try your best and be able to explain how you got to your conclusion. Relax...smile...be confident...be genuine. Review some common case study questions online.

    The Interview was very theoretical and no question was asked regarding my work experience. Mostly definitions were asked and I am not sure how many people remember definitions while they work.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Mix of case interviews and behavioral interviews. I started with a phone screen, and then had two more calls - one was case/behavioral, and the other was just a case. They ranged from strategy to more systems and implementation type questions (e.g., how many instructors should we have for financial system implementation based on XYZ criteria?). After that, I was brought in to the office where I was given a presentation, and had another four interviews. Two were case, and two were just general.

    Very nice and flexible as to accommodate my start date.
