    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture in February 2016.

    Interview

    Lots of steps, common among consulting firms. Recruiter reached out to talk about some things, and then moved on to 2 interviews with Senior Managers. Case interview is difficult but interviewer is likely to help you out if you ask the right questions. Ended with an interview by a Managing Director.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accenture (Charlottesville, VA (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Two interviews
    First Behavioral
    Second Behavioral and Case

    Overall the interview process was not overly difficult. The interviewers were extremely friendly and asked pretty standard interview questions. The case interview was an atypical interview where they gave you a paper describing a company's problem and your opinion on it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture in April 2016.

    Interview

    I met with them at a career fair, and was scheduled for an interview. The first interview was just basic and discussed resume contents. Then a final onsite interview, which consisted of a case interview, and a confirmation interview. The case interview was a little different from what I expected, but I was able to use my understanding of systems to pull through. The confirmation interview questions were basic behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chapel Hill, NC (US)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through an online application and an application through my university's career site. First they paired you with an interview buddy, then had a call to go over the interview process, then there was a dinner with some employees and the other interviewees, and then two rounds of interviews, including a case interview. They did a great job of engaging interviewees throughout the process.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Very standard. First round is HR phone conversation. Second round is all about fit questions and your career goals. They want to know where you're heading and if you're planning to stick with the position. Went fairly well, they wont throw any curve balls at you or anything like that. Really straight forward. Next part is case studies, which i'd recommend studying for, but i haven't made it there yet. Hoping for the best!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Accenture in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's recruiting website and through Accenture's website during the fall semester. In the spring, I received a first round interview on campus and was invited to a pre-interview reception. I was unable to attend any of the on campus interviews, so my campus recruiter arranged a webcam interview. The interview was a standard behavioral interview. The interviewer asked me about my resume and experiences, and also asked me one question related to my transcript. Two days after the interview, I was contacted by my campus recruiter to schedule an final round interview that was conducted on campus. The final round interview consisted of one behavioral interview followed by a case interview. The behavioral interview was similar to the first one. I was asked questions about my resume as well as standard questions such as "Tell me about a time you had to overcome conflict while working on a team". The case interview was more difficult, as it was about an industry I knew little to nothing about. I was given fifteen minutes to review the case and take notes, and then the interviewer asked me questions related to the case. I was ultimately asked to make a recommendation. The case interview was the most difficult step in the process, and it was different from other case interviews I have had. The case did not involve any calculations. It was more focused on how you processed the information, and the conclusions you draw from information.
