Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC).

Interview

I was already an experienced subcontractor working on the project I was interviewing for so I was able to skip the initial skills & screening interviews. I went through 2 rounds of interviews and was offered a fair and competitive role and salary.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Reached out by recruiter for phone interview, very basic / casual chat with them. They asked for me to come in the following week for in person interview.
    In person interview had 2 sections, 1 technical and 1 personality.
    Technical - mostly asked technical questions about items listed on my resume. (Note: KNOW YOUR RESUME)
    Personality - very casual chat. The manager interviewing me had a list of some sort for the interview but he didn't really follow it. Asked me a few questions about myself and then talked about the role / company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Got an offer that was only a little more than my current salary. Declined and gave them counteroffer. They were able to increase initial offer to make it closer to my original number.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accenture (Reston, VA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I posted my resume online but wasn't contacted until I was referred by an employee. The process was about 3 weeks total. I had a phone interview with HR about why Accenture, what do you find interesting about Accenture?

    Then I had an interview with a current Manager and that was focused more on "tell me about a time when..." .

    The final round was face to face with two partners and they had more of a case interview style.

    Negotiation

    Accenture presented a very fair and generous offer. You are ableto provide input before they make the formal offer so you can essentially define it beforehand.
