    Same as others, got a call. Then was called for a personal technical interview. It went well, and had an interview with the partner. That went well as well.

    Reasons for Declining

    They were not willing to offer the salary I requested. The salary offered was only 10% more than the current position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Pune (India)).

    Interview

    The interview process is standard - but the experience was pathetic. Completely unexpected from company like Accenture. Lot of issues which were very frustrating - JD not provided - position not clear - location never confirmed. Recruitment team never cares to respond to your emails or answer phone or call back. When they call - they are always in hurry and as much brief as possible - i think they have an internal SLA of not talking to candidates for more than a minute. Emails sent to wrong address - multiple time. Feedback never shared - when they call you for next round - you understand that you have cleared the earlier - the rounds never ends. Every step has 4-6 weeks of time gap - the whole process took 6 months - and is still WIP. After going through 4 rounds and 6 months I still do not know what position they are hiring me - what will be my job responsibilities - what salary they are ready to offer - what location they are considering me - is it over or there are still more rounds - ridiculous!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Bengaluru (India)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Very lengthy Interview process, Suggest attend walkin for definite results. Else they forget the candidates after certain rounds of interviews if the role is not very urgent. Need to follow up with the receruitment tea m or the referred employee

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was offered an initial telephone interview with a division MD. This was rearranged twice and then ultimately cancelled 20 minutes before the start time.

    When it eventually did take place, I had a very good conversation with a knowledgeable, likeable and experienced MD, and was told afterwards I had scored 4s and 5s and would go to next stage. This was an HR interview and a case study, scheduled for 3 weeks form now. Again, this was cancelled the day before it was due to happen.

    The team responsible for scheduling interviews (Ireland) do not care - they send automated invites and thats about it, do not respond to mails, do not follow up. Felt very much like a conveyor belt. I withdrew from the process as I had other offers on the table and didn't want to wait any longer. On telling them this...I have yet to receive a response.

    Interview Questions

    • Questioning in the MD interview focussed on my skills and experience, what i would be doing at Accenture. Quite an enjoyable conversation actually and no difficult questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Clear, and concise process with good feedback. The start to finish of the process took longer than I anticipted and I need to contact them a few time to update on progress and to drive forward next steps. References and referee checking was the most through I have come across in my career. As a result this stage took some time
