    Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    My resume was submitted through their employee referral program. I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter who asked me a few basic questions and wanted details on my background. Then, he set up two phone interviews that were business case study interviews. During each case study interview, the interviewer asked me details about my background and also asked me general questions like: What do you know about Accenture, why do you want to be a consultant, what do you think a typical day is like for a consultant.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    There are multiple steps in the process and all of the can be completed over the phone until the last interview. This is in person or via tele-presence. I had a total or six interviews, one per week. I had more than the normal amount because I originally applied for one position and was rejected. However, with a couple of days I was offered the chance to interview for my current position. You must have documentation to back up your experience.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate - they offered me a salary in the range I needed. I also received a signing bonus, due to the fact that I would be ineligible for a promotion that year.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was very relaxed. Primarily behavioral questions.
    Second interview was with two interviewers, one was behavioral and the other was a case interview.
    Case interview was challenging. I thought I delved deep into many of the technical details required for the problem, yet the interviewer was looking for more of a shallow, consultant-style answer. I tried to "solve" the problem, and the real answer was to simply set up meetings with the team leaders.

    Very straightforward from start to finish - applied via employee referral, and was contacted same day. Total process took about three weeks from prelim phone screen to offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process depends on how you're being brought in. Most newbies would have more levels of interviews. Transferrees would have around 2. If your name resounds well within the organization, you will have this as formality. At the end of each process, a Managing Director will close the process.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They are three sets of interviews: On Campus Screening, Phone Interview, Onsite Interview divided into a traditional interview and a case study. Overall, it was a very competitive process but it helps them weed out their candidates. Everyone you speak with is very interesting and helpful. Was really impressed with the culture and everyone I spoke with.
