    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Application

    The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Was referred by an employee. I sped through the interview process surprisingly fast.

    3 rounds: 1 Behavioral, 1 Technical, 1 with MD

    Received positive feedback from all 3 interviews at which point they put me through the background check while I waited for an offer. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months (2) and I finally got an email from the recruiter saying they were no longer hiring for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter call, Hiring Manager Call. They recruiter was very nice and helpful. However, it became apparent that she was new to recruiting for this team and didn't know the scope of needs as well as I would have expected. She contacted me the day before the interview to inform me that the job specs had changed. She sent the updated job description the morning of my call. I learned that they wanted someone with a different level of experience than I had. Nothing I could have said in the interview would have gotten me further into the process. The hiring manager said the job specs didn't change. It sounded more like a communication breakdown that I couldn't have done well within.

    Interview

    Interview was through campus recruiting. Pretty straight forward. Had a phone call with an analyst the night before the interview. Was simply just a behavioral interview. He asked about my background and resume. Why I was interested in consulting; also asked why Accenture. As well, he shed some light on the fact that Accenture is a heavily tech based consulting firm.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First interview on campus was broken down into 30 min case/30 min behavioral with two different interviewers. Final interview occurred a week later at the office and consisted of one case plus a few behavioral questions. Tone of the interviews was very friendly and conversational. The final interview was scheduled for 1.5 hours and lasted only about half that time. The interview process itself was smooth, but many of the other new hires from my school and I did not receive our offers until almost two months later.

    Interview

    During my 1st interview, I walked through my resume. My interviewer didn't look up from his laptop the entirety of the interview and texted a few times - my assumption was that he was trying to distract me. My second interview was in the office and ran through basic behavioral questions a few scenarios.
