    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (DC Ranch, AZ).

    Interview

    The hiring process took about 5 months due to security clearance. The interview was very strength forward, professional, and easy. I was hired instantly after a phone screen. They concentrate on SQL skills and previous leadership skills. Review some basic joins and union, how to select tables and Basic query skills. The phone screen lasted for 10-20mins. Ones you communicate your skills within the first 5 mins of the interview, they won't ask you much again.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Although the interview / hiring process is lengthy, the interactions with Accenture were positive. My initial screening with the Recruiter was likely to ensure that I was a real person - There were no unusual questions. I then had a phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by an interview with the managing director.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    I recall three (3) rounds for the interview process. I was in my final year of university and went through a phone screening which consisted of very general questions, a second phone interview that was more behavioral, and a final on-site interview in Arlington, VA.

    Infrastructure Services Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Baltimore, MD) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First round was behavioral. Second round more behavioral with some problem solving questions. Third round was onsite and very in depth about the resume with two hiring managers. At first they were interviewing me for Systems Integration but then switched me over to IS. Be careful the HR department is very very slow at responding and you are left in the dark many a time.

    Interview

    First completed a phone screen with a recruiter, was told right after that I had made it past. Four days or so later was my scheduled interview on the phone with a woman in Dallas which was behavioral, she actually told me how to answer it (she was very nice & explained the process), but to be honest, you should know the STAR method for answering behaviorals. Then I went to a city separate from the one I was going to work at (I guess they have interviews in groups based on position, not on your desired work location). You learn about the company, then they have 2 interviews a technical one (the guy actually didn't interview me, but we just talked about my formal training, what I could do and what department in Accenture I would be better fitted for) then an informal interview where we just chatted. I ended up getting put in Systems Integration, which was great seeing as I liked that better and I didn't have to interview again.

    Infrastructure Consultant Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    First Interview: I was invited to a first round interview through on-campus career services. It was a typical interview that dealt with me explaining my resume and experiences. In the waiting room it seemed as if the recruiters were ranking the interviewers covertly.

    Second Interview: This was a phone interview that lasted about 45mins. It was a situational/behavorial question set. The best way to navigate this was a be as personable as possible and answering the questions without going off-track.

    Final Interview: You get invited for an on-site interview, mine was in NYC. The interview consisted of a opening presentation, then, you meet with two employers for interviews. The interviews seem to be less informal.

    I'm still waiting for a job offer response; it has been a week so far.

    Infrastructure Management and Systems Administration Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (San Antonio, TX) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was arranged by a corporate level recruiter. The interview panel was local, two phase, and split between operational personnel and first-line management personnel. It was an unstructured interview based on discussing hypothetical scenarios. It was oral Q&A without an opportunity to white board the scenarios as they developed. It was also a blind interview in three ways: (1) little to nothing about the position and how it was structured was disclosed prior to commencing Q&A; (2) as the interview unfolded it became clear by the Q&A that the interview had little relationship with how the position was advertised on the Accenture site or described by the recruiter; (3) the specific requirements of the position were not later enumerated including how the work would be structured and what the job responsibilities would be. Management personnel were tasked with discussing the scope of the work, organizational structure, overall company objectives, career paths, compensation packages, policy, etc., but were generally reticent to do so. It appeared that local management did not function well with corporate recruitment and candidates suffered from the friction. Indeed, management started off the conversation with "what do you want to know?" Additionally, the Accenture participants did not seem prepared. We had to wait for security to unlock a conference room. The interviewers came with laptops and had to locate and hook-up to A/C and data ports and find suitable seating, with myself sitting amid a bundle of wires and cables across the table from the interviewers. Meanwhile, the manager came late, took phone calls, answered pages, and left the room a number of times during the process, displaying a sort of haughty arrogance and disdain for the interview. It was insulting.

    Interview

    1. Skill based
    2. Behaviour
    3. MD round

    They basically check how much you know about the role and whether you are proper fit or not.
    MD round is more of a two way communication and asking about career aspirations.
