Management Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY (US)).

Interview

Phone screening followed by multiple requests to schedule another round. However, any time I provided dates/times I was available I never received a response from the recruiter. A week or two would pass and I would again be asked to provide times I was available for another round. This happened 3x before I stopped responding.

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

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interviews--one was a behavioral interview, one was a case interview, and one was a confirming interview. They were very generous with how much time they give you to think in the case interview. The interview process really was not bad.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Minneapolis, MN (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    One interview, then notified whether the process continues, then two more interviews (one confirming, one case). The case was on profitability and was fairly easy, while the other interviews were behavioral and quite casual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    I was referred by their client to interview. I participated in 3 interviews over approximately 12 weeks. No one I interviewed with seemed to have any clue who I was, or what position I was applying to. I have 5+ years of experience and an advanced degree and some of the questions in my first interview were "What extra curricular activities did you have in college? Were you in an honor society?" My second and third interview were switched, and my third one was focused on a subject matter that I have absolutely no background in, and was not relevant to the position. I received good feedback from the client interview, but apparently did not get the job due to "lack of analytical skills." when I probed for feedback on what these skills were, or how they are assessed, I did not receive any additional information. Communication from my recruiter at accenture was absolutely awful the entire time; any requests for additional information were ignored or I was told they were following up with someone else but I never received any information. I was dinged for asking a quesiton about remote working, despite receiving no salary or benefit information the entire time. Regardless, I was prepared to move and was planning to give my notice -- given all of the great feedback from my interviews. I was instead told "it wont work out but were looking at entry level positions instead."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Applied and within 3 weeks received a call from a recruiter. Answered a few basic questions and was set up for a behavioral interview which lasts an hour. Lastly, flown to Chicago for in person confirming interview session. Didn't know what to expect based on previous interviews. What helped me was to have a few scenarios that detailed my experience with project implementation or situations where I had to deal with resistance from cross functional teams.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Arlington, VA (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    First interview - typical behavioral interview; positive experience
    Second interview - case interview: extremely difficult case that was considered ‘not technical’ but involved details in IT that I was not familiar with whatsoever. Workbook they provide with example cases is not even close to the case you will be presented. I was interviewed by a computer engineer who asked me technical questions
    Third interview - conversation with a director about work life and able to ask questions

    Interview

    Received interview via NBMBA conference. Then a few weeks later I was emailed to set up a call with a Manager. The interview was about an hour long, although we did use the whole time. The manager was very nice. She was interested to know why I was interested in payments processing, why Accenture.
