Software Engineering Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Accenture.
Interview Details Was campus recruited. The entire process consisted of 2 interview rounds, one HR and the other technical round. The questions were largely how you will react to different situations and on the final year project as well as the technical skills your possess like C++/C/Java
Interview Question – Explain the different types of normalization in Database using examples. Answer Question
Associate Software Engineer (ASE) Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in May 2014.
Interview Details Accenture called me through cellphone and invited me for an exam.
1. They gave me 2 hours to finish the exam and I passed, then got invited for an interview the next day.
2. I did good on the interview, after that day it took 1 month for them to send me an email, they're asking for my Transcript of Records and Copy of Grades (TOR and COG).
I assumed that I passed the exam and interview because they're asking me for the next step already, which is the copy of my records from college, let's call this "Record Screening". Accenture looks at applicant's past records and I think this is VERY VERY WRONG, when I sent them my COG I put a message in the email saying that "please don't base my application on my past records" but still... they did! This is unfair in my opinion, the person who applied to them is ME NOW, not me 4 years ago who took things easily because I was young and dumb, there are applicants who had good records in college but were not able to pass their exam and interview! They should change this rule, this is unfair, this is wrong.

Associate Software Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied online and interviewed at Accenture.
Interview Details Applied for the job on their website and was emailed a week later to set up an over the phone interview. My recruiter asked basic questions pertaining to previous projects I did in school and what languages I had covered in school as well. After that I was given an online assessment which was fairly simple for the most part. After the test my recruiter said she would email me if I passed and set up a face to face interview. However, I had to email her to and ask how I did. She replied by saying I passed and that she was scheduling the face to face interviews. I am still to this day waiting on that email. I even emailed her to check on whether or not the emails had been scheduled and I had gotten no reply.
