    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Process took about 2 months; overall a great experience. Behavioral, technical, and a excel case interview. The phone screening was pretty basic, they just asked about what you do in your current role, how long you been there, how much do you expect to get paid. The entire in-person interview took about 4 hours, including the case. Be prepared to answer several follow up questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    After the resume drop I was invited for a one hour first round interview. Between then time I found out and the interview, I was assigned a buddy that answered any questions I had. The whole interview was behavioral even though I expected a case and mainly consisted of me walking through each point on my resume. There were some situational questions at the end but ultimately pretty relaxed environment as the interviewer was relaxed. Thought I did well and was receiving good feedback from the interview as I answered questions but I guess not.

    Consulting Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    First round interview on campus - behavioral. Very chill.
    Second round interviews in their SF office. One case, one behavioral. My case interviewer was sick or had allergies or something but he was incredibly sleepy/tired/boring. Somewhat unprofessional, but he seemed sick so maybe that explains it. Second interviewer was bright, intelligent, well accomplished (grad school, mechanical engineering, stanford), a bit cocky. He was much more engaging.

    The case was different that the typical case-prep cases. No calculations, mostly logical deduction and organization. Not interview-led (not very conversational). You were given a sheet of paper with the details of the case, 10 minutes to analyze it and then provide your analysis and summarized takeaways.

    You'll have to do a background check before starting work.
    Also they make you take a personality test.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through on campus recruiting to both Strategy and Management Consulting. My interview track was for Strategy.

    First round was one case and one behavioral, 45 minutes each. Second round was the same.

    Both cases were interviewee led, which made them difficult for me personally. They also didn't require much math at all, and calculations weren't much of a focus. In fact, I stumbled on the only math problem in the entire second round interview and still got the offer somehow.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email and asked to apply online for a specific position. Later, on the phone I asked how they had found my resume and was told that it was from Monster. I hadn't placed my resume on Monster and still haven't. Thought this was worth mentioning. I was then called by an employee of Accenture in Canada about the position I applied for in California and asked stereotypical placement questions that were not at all technical and then asked to complete an online test about Java. The information I was given was somewhat misleading. The link to a video about the test implied I would be asked to answer questions with a mic and a webcam, which were not at all utilized. Half of the questions were unrelated to Java but still technical. For example, typical Linux commands. All of the questions were multiple choice and individually timed. Each question was allotted about thirty seconds with a few longer questions getting slightly more time and a few others getting less. After completing a question you had as long as you desired to click the button to show the next question, which also starts the next timer. It took me about twenty minutes over all. After completing the test I confirmed via email that it was finished and then literally never heard from them again.
