    Technology Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was long and efficient. After a referral and some digital communication, I had a phone interview with a team lead who ok'd the next (two-part) interview in person and on site. The first interview was about my technical background and expertise. The second interview was a behavioral interview which was fine I guess too.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had a virtual interview set up via a connection in the firm (very hard to get interviews if you're not at a target campus). 3 phases - behavioral, case, and closing interviews. I put a lot of time and preparation into the interview process, but I would have given it a difficult rating had I not prepared the way that I did.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with taking to a recruiter, and then I had a phone interview and a personality test. After that I have been offered to go into the next round of interview which is a case interview and another confirming interview. It was about a week after my first two parts of the interview that I heard back about getting to move on to the case interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The first round was a typical resume review, where they just asked you to describe how you have impacted the different groups you were a part of/positions you've held. Second round consisted of 45 minute behavioral interview, and an immediate 45 minute case interview. Case was relatively straight forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed through college/university recruiting. I did three back-to-back interviews. 1st was the behavioral interview, 2nd was a case interview and 3rd was the confirming interview. All of my interviewers were so nice and approachable and made the interviewing environment as natural and easy as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • First and third interviews were the typical fit and behavioral questions: tell me a time when you, where do you see yourself in 5 years, why consulting, why Accenture- types of questions.
      Case interview was a little more difficult, just make sure to practice case questions.   Answer Question

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The process is a half hour presentation followed by 2 half hour interviews. One was technical and the other I felt was more just feeling out your personality. In the technical they simply asked me to talk about a project I have worked on in the past and explain my contributions to it. The interviewer would stop me here and there for more detailed explanations but they seemed more concerned with gauging experience rather than technical ability. The HR interview was basically just talking about where I could fit in the company based on what I had on my resume.

    • Explain a time that a group member wasn't doing there share of work and how you handled it.   1 Answer
