    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Accenture in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for Accenture is very tedious and grueling. They set up an interview with HR first, if you pass that you go to the hiring manager for a second interview, lastly you go back to the HR for your final interview and paperwork. This is where they send your information to Hireright which is a complete joke of a business. This process takes about 2-3 months to get hired on with Accenture

    Interview Questions
    • They were all pretty basic interview questions, know the company's mission statement.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty standard, they sent a higher offer than I expected so even if they hadn't negotiated with me I would have been happy.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 stages: application form, telephone interview, assessment centre
    All in all a good experience and all Accenture staff were very nice and friendly.

    Assessment centre was a group exercise followed by a project planning / presenting exercise / interview.
    I found the group exercise most stressful. You are bombarded with huge volumes of information and have very little time. Be selective on what you read - sounding confident and being cooperative is the main thing!

    The interview was mostly on the project planning exercise and mainly involved the interviewer pointing out possible problems in the plan and asking how you would mitigate those risks.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you resolve potential delays at stage "x" in the project? The interviewer was very pushy on these sorts of questions, trying to squeeze as much detail (even if it's obvious) out of you.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    the first interview is in group. Just be yourself, and try to pay attention to everything happens. Different business cases are presented to you and to the group. It is very important to be smart, to talk and to collaborate. The other two interviews are 1:1 with questions about personal background, competencies and experiences. You also discuss some business case, normally quite feasible. It is very important to be motivated and to know what you are doing, why you are there. Never speak about work/life balance. In any case the answer is simple: there is no balance.

    Interview Questions
    • -What are your 3 major shortcomings.
      -How many people get married in Italy every year.
