    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Very quick turn around. I applied through my school's job portal and within 2/3 weeks I was contacted for a first-round interview. The first-round interview is getting to know you and understanding your fit with the company. The second round (the last round) is working a case. The case was sent over beforehand and you have time to work it. They also sent materials to help students know what to look for in the case.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Typical behavioral interview. Following a round of phone interviews, I flew to Chicago to meet with a host of Partners for a morning. I'm not certain whether this is the standard approach now, as most people I have seen interviewed since I joined simply get a single interview and then a decision. It may be a difference between the workforces.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture in September 2019.

    Interview

    First, there was a resume and cover letter submission. I was invited to first-round interviews on campus (one 45-minute behavioral interview) and subsequently invited to final round interviews (also on campus.) The final round consisted of one relaxed case interview and one confirming/behavioral interview. They were not prompt with sending out offers, it took over two weeks after the final interview for most candidates (who did and did not receive offers) to hear from Accenture.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (Houston, TX (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through a career fair and had 1 phone screen, 1 behavioral interview, then a face to face interview with a Managing Director. The phone screen was brief, they wanted to make sure I met the requirements. The Behavioral Interview took 1 hour, but they only asked me 3 questions, my one on one interview was only 30 minutes, but they asked me questions about how I did my job, instead of what I did in my job.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the most important questions during the first situational (ABI) interview was, "Describe a time you had conflict with a team mate or supervisor"; During the final interview I was asked "Why Accenture and where do you want your career to go in Accenture?"   1 Answer
