    Systems Integration Consulting Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Very standard interview process, typical of the industry. There are several rounds of interviews: 1st is with HR to go through your experience, academic background and interests. There are also some behavioral questions. 2nd is with a member of the workforce you are being considered for: You will most likely interview with a Manager and questions are very specific to job experiences. There may be some cases in this stage as well. 3rd is also with a member of the workforce, a more senior one in this case (likely a Senior Manager, but can also be a Managing Director). The interview itself is pretty similar to the 2nd interview. If you pass these rounds, you get invited for an office visit (expenses paid) where you'll meet with several individuals that will assess your fit with the organization.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Reached out by recruiter for phone interview, very basic / casual chat with them. They asked for me to come in the following week for in person interview.
    In person interview had 2 sections, 1 technical and 1 personality.
    Technical - mostly asked technical questions about items listed on my resume. (Note: KNOW YOUR RESUME)
    Personality - very casual chat. The manager interviewing me had a list of some sort for the interview but he didn't really follow it. Asked me a few questions about myself and then talked about the role / company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Got an offer that was only a little more than my current salary. Declined and gave them counteroffer. They were able to increase initial offer to make it closer to my original number.

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    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 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.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Declined Offer
    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.

    Interview Questions

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