Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Sacramento, CA) in July 2012.

Interview

5 phone interviews and one in person interview. Be very careful if they don't fly you out to the office you will be working in. Office culture varies a lot from city to city. I had an interview with an engineer out of the office I would work in over the phone. I would highly recommend to meet someone from the office you will work in IN PERSON.

Interview Questions

  • No hard ball questions. Just know your technical expertise.   Answer Question

Negotiation

No room for negotiation. Accept it or move on.

    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

    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

    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.
