    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Oakland, CA).

    The process was long, but the HR crew was very helpful and friendly. Accenture is a hard company to get in with so I was very thankful for the opportunity. However, after going through multiple steps it did not seem like my skills aligned to their needs.

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    The whole hiring process consisted of one phone interview of 30 minutes and two onsite interviews to review work samples from my portfolio and meet key team members with leadership positions within the group I was going to be part of. Dates and times were coordinated by Staff Agency.

    Offices in Redwood City are modern with an entrepreneurial feeling. Most of the time empty since many people work from home. All kind of snacks, fruits and coffee available. People are friendly in general.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Redwood City, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There were three interviews. The first was an informal conversation with the recruiter to assess wether I should move on to the "technical interview". I write technical in quotes, because It was probably the least technical interview I've had and I don't say that in a bad way. I prepared like crazy, but was shocked that we had more of a conversation about past projects and choices I've made in those projects. I would defend or elaborate about what I do different. The third interview was an onsite interview with my manager and who seemed to be trying to get a feel for how I would get along with the rest of the team. We barely discussed code and after a small discussion and tour he made me a verbal offer.
