    Consulting Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute behavioral over the phone followed by two-30 minute interviews on site. The first interview was a case. I had 10 minutes to read and then respond with recommendations. The second was a behavioral with 4-5 typical questions.

    The case interviewer seemed disinterested and was typing on his laptop for about 25% of the time. Not a great show for the company. The second interviewer was much more conversational and easy to chat with.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was overall pretty easy. I applied late August. I was emailed with a request for an HR interview early September. The phone call was really basic, just asking about my experience in software development, my experience working with clients, etc. I was scheduled for an on-site interview later that month.

    The on-site interview took about 3 hours, there was a 50 minute presentation about the Accenture Federal Services, the role, career track, and the benefits package. The presentation was given to a group of about 5 of us. They had interviewed other people earlier that morning, and my recruiter said they'd been interviewing for a few days, so I imagine a lot of people were interviewed.

    After that, were two rounds of interviews, about 45 minutes each. The first one was an HR interview with an accounts manager. He was extremely chill, very friendly, and the interview was very conversational. I talked about my current job, projects I've done, what I was most proud of, and why I want to leave there and come to Accenture.

    The second interview was with a manager leading a large software project. This was technical and the guy was much more intense. He asked me about my programming skills, I talked about my work in my current job using Python and C#. He asked me pretty in-depth questions about those projects. He asked me about object inheritance, polymorphism. I had SQL on my resume, so he asked me about DDL and DML (database stuff).

    I received a phone call from HR the very next day with an offer, and that my experience and interview performance actually would bump me up to an Software Engineer Analyst, instead of Associate. So that was dope. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience, and the recruiter was super friendly and really helped me a lot.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral and a recruiter reached out to me the day the referral was put in. I had two phone interviews, one phone screening interview with a recruiter and one behavioral interview. And I had two in-person interviews, one case interview and one confirming interview to see if I was a good for the company. The case interview was very standard and a lot like the ones I studied in Case in Point. Definitely a good resource to consult if you're new to case interviews like I was!

    Technology Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I am a graduating senior majoring in biomedical engineering. I have three internships in quantitative analysis roles and extensive experience in an extracurricular consulting club I helped found, which is what I think set me apart. I met Accenture recruiters at a career fair during a conference and had an in-person interview the next day at the same conference. It was a behavioral interview, but I could tell the interviewer was deeply assessing my interpersonal skills, i.e. how I answer questions, how I pose questions, my body language, etc. I had a second interview on the phone 2 months later (there was a long delay in between the first interview and the second since Thanksgiving break occurred and my recruiter was traveling extensively during that period). The second interview was purely behavioral, but it was very easy (questions included: When have you ever had to work with difficult team members?). The third and final interview entailed flying me out to DC a month later, where I interviewed in person with three Accenture employees and attended information sessions on the company. They questioned me on my technical background and asked me what I would do in certain situations. I was more nervous for this day then I should have been; they did a very good job of putting me and the other interviewees at rest. I learned of their decision to extend me an offer about a week or so later.
