    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Standard phone interview followed by a group interview session that consisted of Q&A of current employees followed by a more standard individual interview process. There was a strong focus on communication and no focus at all on assessing your skills and abilities.

    Interviewed on campus. First round was an hour of behavioral questions. Most of the questions were fairly standard, asking about why consulting etc, but they asked me to name different industries they worked with. The interviewer was nice and helpful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    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. As an external hire, this was much appreciated and I felt valued throughout! Had 6 interviews in total - phone screen, skills analysis, behavioral, and three in person interviews (one case, one skills, and a conversation with a Managing Director).

    Interview

    Two rounds of on campus interviews. Two behavioral interviews plus one case study (2.5 hours total during two days). The interviews were two weeks after the career fair. Invited to interview over emails, received a call with the interview results. They put together a bunch of events to help prepare for the case interview and to network with their recruiting team. Very professional and young crowd!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's recruitment application. A week after I submitted the application, I got an email that informed me I had an interview on campus three days later. It was a one on one interview where he asked me a series of pretty standard interview questions that lasted an hour. Then I waited 5 days to see if I had a second interview. Then I would have gone to the office the next Friday but since I was out of town and I had already had an interview with an executive, they decided to give me a phone interview the following week that included another behavioral interview and a case study that last in sum an hour and a half. Now I am waiting to hear back for the next steps.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of team questions. So "Tell me about a time you had a conflict in a team and what did you do to help resolve the problem?" "Tell me about a time you were in a team and....?"   Answer Question
