    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application. I had a screening phone call, which went just fine (basic screening questions). I had a follow up interview with someone from the department I was interviewing for. My interviewer was brash and rude throughout the entire conversation, asking me very vague questions and then getting upset when I asked for clarification so I could provide a response. At one point, I even stared at my phone, trying to decide whether to just hang up or not. Nothing like this has ever happened to me in an interview. I was glad when it ended and genuinely happy when I did not advance to the next stage of interviews. I'm surprised the company allowed this individual to interview candidates, although I left the interview feeling like I had dodged a bullet.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture in April 2017.

    Interview

    First a digital interview--basically video-recording interview question responses w/o someone actively on the other end. About 20 questions (most of which were multiple choice like 'are you legally permitted to work in the US etc) but a few like "why do you want to work at Accenture?" and "what level do you feel suited to (entry, experienced) and why?"
    After that was a live video interview with two people. First was technical, second was normal interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interview Process was simple and to the point. It was round robin style and the interviewers were professional and friendly. A schedule of the interview times were given prior to interviews. Lunch was provided and the interviewers were extremely approachable and gave good advice the night before during the social. Contact was made the week prior to interviews to confirm travel times/conflicts and etc. Overall, the interview process was smooth, however, some of the times went over and it through times off. Interviewers tried to manage this by rearranging interview times after lunch.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Their recruiter contacted me on LinkedIn and asked me if I would be interested in a position. She sent me the job description and I sent her my resume. She said she wanted to get me in for an interview. The next week she called, arranged a time, and said she would email me specifics. I never received the email, and she called me five hours before the interview to cancel with no explanation. I never heard back from the company.
