    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    The whole process took exactly 2 months. 3 days after I applied, I got a screening call from a recruiter. A week and half later, I had my in person interview. It was supposed to be with 3 different individuals but only 2 were available. I interviewed with the project manager, the one I'll be reporting to. He grilled me on my skills. At the end, he said I intentionally asked you tough questions to see if you know what you're talking about, and I'm impressed with your skills. Then, I asked him questions about himself, i.e., how long he's been with Accenture, why Accenture? The second individual will be a teammate but a level above me. He also asked me pointed questions about my skills especially as it relates to the type of systems I've worked on. A week later, I met with an executive of the company. He basically asked me 2 questions only; why Accenture, and how many years of experience I have? Then he told me he'll be the one to make the final decision about hiring me or not. I used that opportunity to ask him what he looks for in a candidate, how can I succeed in this position of hired. Based on his responses, I was able to highlight my skills. This step was important because he didn't ask me questions that will allow me to discuss my skills. Also, they look to see how long you can keep a conversation going, and if you're a good communicator. 10 days later, I got an offer. My recruiter was on vacation and she did set up that expectation for me. I asked them time to review the offer and he benefits. My process took 60 days to the day because my recruiter was out twice due to personal reasons. I like the fact that she always set up the expectation when she's not going to be available and for how long. I was impressed with the whole process, however.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter within a week of applying to their position online. They asked me general background, experience and personality questions and discussed the next steps in the process: 3 more phone interviews -- a skill one, a behavioral one, and a web conference.

    The skills interview was scheduled very quickly after the initial interview, however, it was on a late Monday and I had a bad feeling about it, because generally Mondays are stressful and I didn't want to be interviewed after someone had a bad day. I had good reason to be worried. The person who called me for the skill interview had not even looked at my resume (he was surprised that I had a certification in a field that they were interviewing me for and it was the basis for the interview itself). So naturally, he didn't ask me any questions about my 3 year experience in this area. Instead, he shot 3 quick scenario questions at me, to which I replied trying to give him real-life examples that I've had that closely resembled his scenario. He didn't like my answers and kept asking me to paraphrase them, so they fit whatever answer sheet he seems to have printed. He didn't seem to be a good subject matter expert, either, because he kept confusing key terminology and it seemed that he had printed questions/answers from somewhere and was trying to get an answer that is exactly as it appeared in front of him. We ended with me asking him a couple of questions, but seeing his abrupt and one-word answers, I got the feeling that he will not be recommending that I get hired, anyway, so I left it at that.

    Accenture is a good company, but it would be nice that the people who conduct interviews at least read the applicants resume or be interested in their experience. I don't think I will be getting an offer from them, but am pursuing other endeavors.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Athens (Greece)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Athens (Greece)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process spreads through four interviews.

    The first is with an HR Recruiter and in addition to the one-to-one interview contains also Cognitive test (20 min), SQL test (30 min), two programing languages of your choice test (Java, C#, C, C++, Cobol)(55 min) and a Case Study (40 min). The first interview is the "hardest" one, prepare yourself for 4 hours of continuous testing and scrutiny.

    The second interview is with the Project Managers that think you might fit in their team, the questions are focused in teamwork and leadership skills that you might posses. For the second interview be prepared to tell convincing stories about your experiences in previous projects and also make sure that you highlight all your key character attributes. This interview is focused to test your knowledge in key computer science areas like databases, project management etc. Mainly contains questions like "Tell me about a project that failed and what was your role in that".

    The third interview is with a Senior Manager. In this interview, the manager will review the Case Study that you wrote during the first interview and will try to test your consultancy skills. Make sure you know why you wrote what and be prepared to give persuasive answers. If you made it this far, then congratulations, you are just one step from your goal!

    The forth and last interview is with the Vice President of your local Accenture office. The VP wants to know you better, he will ask you to run him through your case study and into what is your approach to solve it. Also be prepared to show him some of your personal projects. The main reason of this interview is to bridge the VP with the new blood. This is a relaxed interview, VP already knows that you have something that the other three interviewing parties liked about you, so he will not push you to the limits like the others did. Make sure that you bring in forefront characteristics of your personality such as gratitude, straightforwardness, honesty etc.

    Well done! You made through all the stages, now wait for the job offer!
