    Interview

    Two rounds, first one was an hour behavioral, second was an hour case and an hour behavioral. Think they try to phase you during the case interview but as long as you don't get flustered its ok.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I went through campus recruiting. My first interview was one hour long and conducted by a manager. The manager who interviewed me opened with some housekeeping questions (military status, visa sponsorship, etc.) and then introduced her experience with Accenture. She then moved on to a string of behavioral questions before letting me end the interview with my questions for her.

    I found it interesting how she asked me to make a final closing statement before I left the interviewing room. I thought I had done a solid job but unfortunately despite all of the research and prep I did I did not make it past this first round; I recommend that you (obviously) prepare for these interviews but also never underestimate how important uncontrolled factors are in this process (i.e. the chemistry between you and your interviewer).

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was repetitively reached out by a recruiter from Cloud First practice over span of few months. I finally made up my mind to give it a try. I had two hour long phone screen with Sr. Managers they were both very nice and I enjoyed talking to them. Next thing was to do case study interview with two other Senior Managers they shared some instructions on how to do it on Skype Business account something that they new at adopting at. I reached out to the organizer about how it seems not to be working and asked her few questions about it. As not every user will have Skype for Business account unless one choose to use the one with their current employer. orgnaizer response was she is quite new to conducting case study interview via Skype for business and not sure what we can do apart from just doing it over phone in case it doesn't work that day. I mean Accenture is one of the big 4 consulting group and as a candidate one would expect a better response from their recruiting team. I did my case study interview the odd part of the interview was one Sr. manager had a call centre/ support background and he totally disregarded the fact that the discussion is about the over all saleforce implementation from Marketing cloud, Sales Cloud and Service cloud. I still dealt with his way of thinking and tailored my presentation. I was told by recruiter that they both liked me and would like to staff me on a project soon. Meantime, she would like me to talk to another Sr. manager and my interview again went really well. In all this time frame not only she drag the process really slow where her and I had 100 email exchanged but I invested substantial amount of time. She also mentioned that I am on top of her hiring list but all roles are on hold until early next year. ofcourse as expected no updates as of yet. lesson learned never bother to respond back to recruiter from Accenture or apply there. Positions remain in flux always and they make you go through this rigrous process. I work for a company that has salesforce implementation and Accenture was involved in earlier. I have a strong suspicion if they did all this to know about how my company uses salesforce and how they can propose for sale spitch to our company exec. but thats my assumption based on how they made me go through so many rounds and then decided to put all roles I was a perfect fit for on hold. Sounds so shady but who knows what the truth

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted application online and was contacted by internal recruiter for phone screen. After brief discussion she said she felt I was overqualified for the role I had applied for but said she wanted to pass along my resume to one of her colleagues. The next day I was contacted by another recruiter to schedule initial phone screen, followed by situational/behavioral interview (phone), case interview (Skype), and meetings with two Managing Directors (one by video conference, one in-person). Called and told they were going to back an offer a few hours after final interview, received official offer letter 2 days later.

    Pros
    *Very efficient, entire process took about 2 weeks
    *Recruiter was responsive to questions and generally provided feedback on interviews within 24 hours
    *Interviewers all seemed well prepared and familiar with my resume

    Cons
    *Refused to negotiate compensation. Initial offer was reasonable but presented as take it or leave it
    *Extensive background check and onboarding process resulted in 3 week lag between acceptance of offer and start date
    *Very little information provided about benefits when I pressed for details on things like cost of medical plans was told that would be covered at orientation

    Faced all interviews from screening, situational, skill based and finally closing interview. Finally was offered a role lower than what I applied for. Turned down the offer as I was not interested in joining a level lower than what I was already doing.
