Senior Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Cleveland, OH) in June 2009.

Interview

It is a very extensive process which include 4-5 interviews. Typically they know what they are looking for and you will be able to tell fairly quickly if you don't fit the mold. Expect to talk to multiple people across a variety of topics both technical and interpersonal. At this level it is much focused on you involvement directly with client executives and your specific contributions in previous positions.

Interview Questions

  • How long can you commit to staying with Accenture? Would you consider offers from competitors within the fist three years of being hired?   Answer Question

Negotiation

I used Glassdoor to set a target early in the process and they met it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Reston, VA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Accenture used to use several rounds of interviews (I had 7). We've since cut the process down to 2-4 interviews. You generally meet with a screener (phone) and then 2-3 executives who would be in your functional or market leadership chain.

    Reasons for Declining

    Accenture vacillated on where and under which partner they wanted to place me. Some internal politics BS probably. I had received a lot of feedback about the politics of their offices... This highlighted that concern. I decided to continue in my current job.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Sacramento, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Communication was initially in e-mail and then phone. Make sure to update information correctly using the online application as their search engine targets various words posted to the online application systems. Interview process is very thorough includes initial screening by recruiter, skills interview with one or more interviewers at same level or above level you're applying for and typically within the same organization structure. Also includes a behavorial/skills interview with a HR representative, typically non-technical in nature. And the 1:1 face-to-face, typically with the Hiring Manager and may or may not be in a panel setting, this interview is the hardest. People you'll meet during this process, typically have been with the company for long periods of time, indicating to me they are happy being with the company. And from what I've seen, it's because of the strong employee culture and customer service environment.

    Interview Questions

    • You walk into a room full of potential clients, tell me your sales pitch, what would you say to them.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes, there are set ranges and you can go above them slightly however salaries are already higher than most companies so exceptions are far and few between so consider this before declining or negotiating over the range.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Houston, TX) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Case Study for hypothetical merger integration engagement. Open ended questions about how one should integrate various pieces of the business ranging from sales to supply chain. Little if any questings test financial acumen or analytical skills. I believe I was selected for the intereview because my M&A experience. Accentures M&A practice appears to be geared to cross sell its core competancies if IT consulting, process improvement, supply chain management, etc. Interesting work, but not a great fit for someone like me with a financial and strategic planning background.
