    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    There are 3 rounds of Interview...1 is HR, another 2 are from employees who are not much qualified. Usually employees in Capgemini are hired from project perspective, and not long term perspective...So once project is completed, and no similar projects are available they are asked to leave company. Capgemini is not interested in investing in employees which is really a big disadvantage to work with.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There were three rounds by three reps total. Each interview was different; one was me sharing who I was, the second more technical along with hypothetical and situational consultant questions, and the final was the most technical and specific to the clients with whom they are considering placing you. Be prepared for to think on your feet.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiters came to the university and emailed back students that signed up for an on-campus interview. My first interview with the company went fine it was one on one and the person mainly asked how I worked and a bit about my background.

    I was able to make it to the second round of interviews at their headquarters in San Francisco. They would interview groups of people in rounds that were scheduled at certain times. You would go through three people to interview that day Unfortunately, I found the coordinator for the event really frazzled and frustrated the entire time. He mainly wanted to rush all of the potential new hires out constantly due to the time crunch. The interviews started later than scheduled and there were awkward breaks where you would just sit down doing nothing since you were not allowed to look at your phone. One person would ask you riddles, another person about technical questions based on your skills, and another on your business analyst skills with a given case. One of the interviewers I encountered was very unprofessional by texting while I was talking and would rudely ask to repeat myself because he was distracted. What really shocked me was when he asked me about my political views and how I felt about the election. I declined to state my opinion but he kept drilling me to answer. I felt really uncomfortable. Out of all the jobs I have interviewed for, this has to be my worst experience. They really need to be more organized and have their questions prepared instead of googling questions on the spot. Honestly, if I would have had an offer I would not have taken it since all of the employees there seemed constantly stressed out or come across as pompous and snobby.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    Unprofessional overall. I was contacted through a recruiter about business analyst opening with Capgemini, for their client. I was initially interviewed by 2 of Capgemini's managers and was cleared for the interviews with the end client. This process was completed in 10 days. Then the grueling process of waiting for next steps started.

    The first interview with client side project manager happened and the interview went well. He was happy and was hinting that there will be one more round with his supervisor. The next round was scheduled a week after and it was again cancelled stating client was held up with something. After waiting for 2 more weeks the last round of interview finally happened and the interviewer was happy and said orally that the next steps would be processed with Capgemini. Here started my indefinite wait. Week after week, it went without any updates. HR was saying that client is ok, but waiting for confirmation to go ahead, later was told that client is not in town and had to wait, then there was some delay and will get back, this happened almost close to 30-40 days and finally after endless follow-ups it was told that visa transfer takes time and client wants the person to join immediately and they could not proceed further in the process.

    Truly unprofessional by Capgemini!!

    When someone is taking time to give your interview, be courteous to give updates, atleast!!!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    Had two different interviewers. One was very lax and after satisfying some straightforward behavioral questions we talked about travel and non business activities. My second interviewer went straight from the interview sheet and was more intentional about responding to my answers.

    Staff Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Capgemini (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    One on one interview on campus. I did well so they invited me to their Super Day along with 14 students from 2 universities. It lasted too long (8am to 5pm). They provided breakfast and lunch, which is honestly the real reason I went! In the morning there was a case study. You had a group of 4 and about 2 hours to complete it. I am an IT person and was shocked that my other members were other majors (accounting, marketing,etc). The case study was for a company that acquires many companies and has multiple systems they want to integrate. I was very obvious to me that the solution was creating a data warehouse because I know & work in a data warehouse. My group members knew nothing about data warehouses and it was very strange. I didn't like having to explain them this system because they should already know this. If you are applying to an IT company, know IT concepts. My group members didn't want to focus of the case study to be about the data warehouse because they felt it wasn't correct. It was a pain to convince them that this was the solution. My group went a different route about a mobile application and they spent way too much time focusing on this. We did the presentation and it went well. I stood about when I spoke about the data warehouse. We were given critiques and they told us we should have focused more on the data warehouse! I TOLD MY GROUP! I then had 2 more one-on-one interviews. They were pretty tough because they had weird questions. I tried my best. I also told them I don't know Java. I want to be an ETL developer and they told me that I need java, which is not true at all. Anyways, I enjoyed the experience and the people. The other staff consultants were very nice and cool. They are young and relate-able. I also liked how they told you about the company. They told you about different programs they offer (one is like having different organizations within the company and the other prepares you to get clients). Overall, it was a very good experience with few negatives. It was also annoying because they had bad parking instructions. They gave me a parking voucher which didn't work so I had to pay $10. HR was very fast and rejected me after 2 days. I thought my performance was 8/10 and I also had good work experience. It's hard to get in.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Capgemini (New York, NY).

    Interview

    In the middle of my interview, the interviewer answered her emails and checked her phone. She then got on her computer stating she needed to build a slide deck that was just sent to her. Extremely unprofessional unless that's their process and how they "test" you. Very easy process, but so unprofessional
