Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

Positive Experience
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).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Accenture (Gainesville, FL) in October 2016.

    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!

    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

    Interview

    Two rounds, first one was an hour behavioral, second was an hour case and an hour behavioral. Think they try to phase you during the case interview but as long as you don't get flustered its ok.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted application online and was contacted by internal recruiter for phone screen. After brief discussion she said she felt I was overqualified for the role I had applied for but said she wanted to pass along my resume to one of her colleagues. The next day I was contacted by another recruiter to schedule initial phone screen, followed by situational/behavioral interview (phone), case interview (Skype), and meetings with two Managing Directors (one by video conference, one in-person). Called and told they were going to back an offer a few hours after final interview, received official offer letter 2 days later.

    Pros
    *Very efficient, entire process took about 2 weeks
    *Recruiter was responsive to questions and generally provided feedback on interviews within 24 hours
    *Interviewers all seemed well prepared and familiar with my resume

    Cons
    *Refused to negotiate compensation. Initial offer was reasonable but presented as take it or leave it
    *Extensive background check and onboarding process resulted in 3 week lag between acceptance of offer and start date
    *Very little information provided about benefits when I pressed for details on things like cost of medical plans was told that would be covered at orientation
