    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (State College, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Campus recruitment. It was very laid back and conversational. Interviewer took notes on what I said. They mostly look for teamwork experience, how you handle challenges, and if you're looking for a 9-5 job this is not the company to work for.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your involvement outside of campus and how you faced challenges?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Hartford, CT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Process took Almost 2 months, yes its a bit slow but i am happy what i got. I applied through the site and recruiter contact me with some basic question regarding my past experience. 3 interviews 1. Behavioral which is video with some basic behavioral question. 2 interview was technical but totally related to my past work. 3 confirmation interview with some basic question like are you ready to lean new technology ? how you are going to manage your work ? , etc. Just after the second day of my confirmation interview i got to know that i had cleared the interview and recruiter then initiate my background check. Background check was done by 3rd party that took almost 15 days. Process was really slow and nothing is confirmed until you have an offer letter in your hand. So that time was lil hard and was feeling impatient. Finally the day come when i got my offer in hand with a very good outcome. Wait is worth for accenture.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interview Process was simple and to the point. It was round robin style and the interviewers were professional and friendly. A schedule of the interview times were given prior to interviews. Lunch was provided and the interviewers were extremely approachable and gave good advice the night before during the social. Contact was made the week prior to interviews to confirm travel times/conflicts and etc. Overall, the interview process was smooth, however, some of the times went over and it through times off. Interviewers tried to manage this by rearranging interview times after lunch.
