    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    For Veterans, I went through the AVTTP program. If successful, you learn a new programming language (Android Development with Java/Javascript) via Udacity. After going through the Udacity course, a HR recruiter will do your 1st interview out of the program, which will take you to a 2nd round of interviews. In the 2nd round interviews, it is a behavioral & technical interview. The last and final review (Confirmation Round) will be with a Managing Director. Some behavioral /HR related Questions. Nothing Big. Verbal offer came within 24hrs. The offer letter came 1.5 weeks afterwards.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There was a three-round interview process. The first interview was over the phone, and consisted of a few general questions about yourself and a brief introduction as to what the role may require you to know. After a week, you get contacted by another recruiter which sets up a second phone interview. This interview is usually conducted by the project manager which you will be working under. This is the most extensive interview, asking both behavioral and a few technical questions. Really focus on highlighting your stengths and show how valuable you would be as an employee. In this case, since the programming language is not common, the technical questions were minimal as you would need to go through training to learn it regardless. This may not be the case every time, since Accenture is a big and growing company they may require you to have extensive knowledge on the programming aspect before joining the team. A week following the second interview, a recruiter will make contact to schedule a third and final interview. This interview was done via a webcam and consisted of many more behavioral questions as well as an extensive breakdown of what the position has you do on a daily basis. It's more laid back due to the second interview being the factoring decision on whether you'll be hired or not. The third interview was conducted by a client manager, which oversees the entire process and is basically the boss of your boss (hiring manager). This interview is to get to know you better, and again try to highlight why you are a valuable asset to the company as in any other interview. A week after the third interview you'll get contacted by the same recruiter to give you a verbal offer and you'll be sent a electronic offer letter and start date. The whole process took about a month so do not panic if you don't get contacted right away.

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

    Interview

    Oncampus placement, starts with an aptitude test for candidates having low GPA or percentage.
    Second round is pure HR but there will a technical interviewer as well. Technical questions can be basics of C, Arrays, recursion programs, linked lists, can be C++ as well if your have written it.
    HR is your introduction, things you do and did in past, strengths and weakness, it's easy.
