Consulting Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Accenture (San Francisco, CA (US)).

Interview

First round interview on campus - behavioral. Very chill.
Second round interviews in their SF office. One case, one behavioral. My case interviewer was sick or had allergies or something but he was incredibly sleepy/tired/boring. Somewhat unprofessional, but he seemed sick so maybe that explains it. Second interviewer was bright, intelligent, well accomplished (grad school, mechanical engineering, stanford), a bit cocky. He was much more engaging.

The case was different that the typical case-prep cases. No calculations, mostly logical deduction and organization. Not interview-led (not very conversational). You were given a sheet of paper with the details of the case, 10 minutes to analyze it and then provide your analysis and summarized takeaways.

You'll have to do a background check before starting work.
Also they make you take a personality test.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two rounds, first one was an hour behavioral, second was an hour case and an hour behavioral. Think they try to phase you during the case interview but as long as you don't get flustered its ok.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Super laid back. I applied on campus and got an email letting me know I got the interview. There were two back to back 30 min interviews. The first was all case the second was half case half get to know me/ask questions. Sent thank you notes and didn't hear anything for a week. I got a super cryptic email from the recruiter asking to chat the next morning. On the call the recruiter offered me the internship.

    Interview Questions

    • The first case was more math based the second was more big picture thinking "how would you solve x problem."   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Atlanta, GA (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with recruiter, then a skills interview and behavioral interview. Had I passed that, I would have had an on-site confirming interview.

    Never heard back from my recruiter after my 2 interviews. Pretty unprofessional to not even send a rejection email. Skills interview went well and they asked me about my past work experiences and got a feel for my technical abilities with cloud computing platforms. Behavioral interview was standard STAR Q&A but my interviewer was extremely combative and interruptive while I was trying to answer the questions and lay the situation out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Standard interview process for large consulting firm. Whether you are transitioning into consulting from a different industry or are heading there straight from the classroom, the interviewer is looking to see if you are really serious about this career move – that you have researched this industry, and will want to know why you chose this industry over where you have been and all of the other choices on your plate.

    Firms know you’ll probably leave – in 2-3 years, if you’re normal – and they are comfortable with that payback cycle. However, the firm loses money on you in the first 6-12 months on the job – they invest heavily in training, and you are contributing very little. It’s a risk to take someone on if they are not committed to the job – so when you answer the questions the interviewer should feel confident that you know about the industry and the company you are applying for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture in February 2018.

    Interview

    4-step process: 15-minute screening, 1-hour technical, 1-hour case study, 30-minute follow-up.
    Last two sessions were through HireVue (like Skype). The interviewers were both late and it looked like they were in their bedroom/home. I was in a suit so I would have appreciated the same effort. But that's cool... Kind of made me feel like the company isn't legit, but hopefully it's just because they're super easy-going.
