    Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process described in this post is for individuals applying to Accenture as a experienced hire.

     First interview: This is a phone screen with the recruiter to discuss your qualification for the position. The recruiter will lightly go through your resume to ensure that you meet the qualifications for the position. Make sure that you know your resume well and that you can relate it back to the position you are applying too.

    Second Interview: This is a Technical screen by a manager on your soon to be team. This person will be asking you about your technical background as it relates to the position. It is extremely important to be able to relate your experience back to the job description as well as be current on things occurring in that field. Use the STAR or PARADE (Victor Cheng) methodology to relate your experience. This style of answering questions is the preferred mechanism for relation information to Accenture managers. Also, Put together 3 to 5 examples of your work that you can refer back to when asked questions. You should know these scenarios like the back of your hand so you can deliver the information with ease to the interviewing manager. Answer all of the interviewing managers questions honestly and tell them when you haven't had experience in a certain area but you would love to grow your knowledge base. If your recruiter is amazing and you make it past the technical screen they will give you some tidbits on things you could approve upon before your next interview. Take this information to heart and Practice, Practice, Practice!!!

    Third Interview: Consists of meeting with a Senior Manager. The senior manager will perform a behavioral interview which discusses your background in an indirect manner. The interviewer will ask you about your current project and the role you played on the team. They are looking too see if you were a leader and what type of activities you have completed. Be sure to really have an answer for the following questions: Tell me about yourself?, Reason for wanting to join Accenture?, What type of consulting work would you like to focus on? During this interview be honest with your short falls and make sure to play up the items in your career that you have shined on. Prepare several questions to ask your interviewer. Be sure to create questions that are interesting and dynamic which really sure your character.

    Last Step in the process is circling back with the recruiter and receiving your offer letter. Make sure that you do some negotiation in this process. A good book to read in regards to this matter is called The Recruiting Snitch!

    I hope this post helps future Accenture employees. I know without the information on this site I would not be able to prepare appropriately.

    HR's are doing hell @ Accenture

    This company is doing hell with the job applicants

     - No Preliminary interview details (like Current Salary, Years of exp. etc.)
     - No specific time for scheduling the interview
     - after everything happens they will update status like ("Compensation Mismatch")

     It's a high UN-Professionalism and they are wasting the time of many good candidates. This has happened with me TWICE and there is no process to approach the HR.

    Even if you wrote emails to the HR, they will never revert back to you.

    After clearing all the rounds HR will update the status as "Compensation Mismatch - Awaiting suitable demand"

    Accenture is creating a big -ve by doing these bad practices.
