    MC Analyst Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Was contacted by the recruiter for an initial phone screen. Received a follow up to interview in person about a week later. In person interview consisted of a peer interview, a skills interview and then a confirmation interview.

    It really helped to be super informed about Accenture and it's culture. They also had me solve a problem on a white board but they walked me through the entire thing so it wasn't bad at all.

    Interview

    Recruiter called and did a run through of the recruiting process. Due to being a recent college graduate with minimal experience, I was scheduled to a situational interview. Situational interviewer did not really allow me to answer the questions since she kept interrupting. I did not feel like it was fair interview and never experienced a behavioral interview like this one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very flexible. I had my technical interview in a Saturday and the interview with a senior manager in the next Friday, end of the day.
    Since I was in a critical phase of the project with deliverables, I asked the recruiter to schedule interviews during time that would not impact my activities. I was surprise when he proposed me the first one in a Saturday morning.
