    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very flexible. I had my technical interview in a Saturday and the interview with a senior manager in the next Friday, end of the day.
    Since I was in a critical phase of the project with deliverables, I asked the recruiter to schedule interviews during time that would not impact my activities. I was surprise when he proposed me the first one in a Saturday morning.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accenture in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for the position and they got back to me fairly quick(less than a week). The recruiter was very nice and give me some background on the company and the position. Five days later, I had my technical interview. Thank God for a previous review because my interviewer basically asked me the exact same questions and I was able to answer all of them. He asked me about polymorphism, abstract class, abstract methods, exception, errors, past projects experiences, encapsulation, inheritance, why accenture, interface, overloading vs overriding, static, and at the end I got to ask some questions. After the interview was over I received an email from my recruiter letting me know she wanted to move on to the closing/HR interview.

    Interview Questions

    • WARNING: The technical person will ask you what languages you are most comfortable with and ask you question regarding all. So if your strongest in Java, just say Java. Don't be cocky.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Hiring and interview process is easy. They will ask you questions on whatever your strengths are,like, you just have to tell them your good areas and they will put questions on that area,so, I would say it's easy.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You can always negotiate based on how ur interview went and also depends on your capabilities.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    As it was a college placement, it started with an aptitude test. After clearing the test there was a round of technical interview. Mainly here the interviewer asked about my college project and a few technical questions on C++ and Java. This was followed by an HR interview, where the interviewer asks some situation based questions. Also expect questions on relocation and working on shifts.

    Interview Questions

    • Can't disclose the question but would suggest one thing, make sure you get your fundamentals cleared on programming/database. If you want to answer some bold concepts just make sure that you answer them carefully because if the interviewer is technically strong(most of the times they are), they can grill you by asking questions based on your previous answers.   Answer Question
