Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in January 2017.

Interview

Application:
I applied online via an employee referral

Overall take on the process:
Unprofessional, disorganized, and ghosted

Process: 3 months
HR Screening - standard and competent interviewer
Round 1 - Hiring Manager, was great. We kicked it off and he said he liked me. Questions were role related and behavioral.
Round 2 - Hiring Manager's boss. Really liked her as well. Questions were role related and more about fit. We talked for about 2 hours over lunch.
Round 3 - Head of the department. Mostly fit related questions. This was a new part of the process...because the Head of the Department said he wanted to meet every new person that was hired.

Here's where things got weird.
1 - HR that was handling the process went ghost. When I emailed him about my availability for the next round, his email was dead. Apparently, he abruptly left the company. I reached out to someone else on the team and they figured it out.
2 - It took 3 weeks to get the final interview scheduled. The interview went ok, but the director told me that his interview process was long AND that he didn't receive any follow-up regarding his offer for weeks, so he assumed he didn't get the job. He reached out a friend to his friend to figure out what went wrong, and the friend was like 'omg, the team thought they hired you and you had started. " So eventually HR and the hiring manager got it together.

This should've served as an omen.

So, I followed up with the replacement HR who facilitated the process after the interview to check on next steps. Crickets. So I followed up one more time with a call because, hey, the previous guy had warned me they drop the ball with offers. The HR lady was like, 'oh yea, I've been meaning to reach back out to you. I'll give you a call back in 15 minutes." She didn't call back. Unprofessional.

This was my first time where I had been through a final interview process where
1. The HR disappeared
2. The HR didn't communicate regarding the final steps.

There seems to be something broken with Accenture's HR workflow, follow-ups and offering process. If this is how they're treating people they want to impress, I can only imagine how employees get treated.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I just did a first round interview with Accenture for a manager position. First of all, I was unaware that it was a phone interview two recruiters (one was apparently "shadowing"). Then the phone call tech was rather off-putting, the two recruiters would randomly drop off the call (they said they were on mute) but this was an interview! And they were telling me about "leveling" at the partnership level - I was only applying for a manager position. Of course, they were saying that to get promoted from manager to sr. manager would take 3-4 years

    It was a great experience. Asked questions on client interaction and testing processes. After the tech interview, the partner interviewed and asked about travel preference. The job offer took a while bu everything was done in 4 weeks.

    Interview

    The interview process is a bit slow, but other than that, I can't point to anything negative. First we spoke with a director, then another person in his level a couple of weeks after the first interview.

    Interview Questions

    • In my case, it was more about them explaining what they do and how they do it and what they would expect from me.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture in March 2015.

    Interview

    First contacted by HR for a short screen. Set up for technical screening which was overview about my work and the work the team does. Then had a behavioral interview followed by final video interview with Managing Director. Very streamlined and received offer within a week. My tips - prepare stories based in your experience and research Accenture very well.

    Negotiation

    Negotiated once - they came back with final offer which was pretty good.
