Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in June 2012.

Interview

I got a call from HR to fix up an interview, HR scheduled a telephonic interview to be conducted in weeks time. I never received any call, after day or two HR called me again to re-schedule the interview, the telephonic interview happened this time. I heard nothing from HR for next two weeks so I thought that may be I am not selected. I got a call from HR again after two weeks saying that I have cleared the first round and wants my preferred time for second round. I cleared the second round as well, after a week I got call from HR to submit my document so that they can release an offer, I submitted all the documents and till date have not heard anything from them. I called up HR many a times but nobody bothered to give me any reason.

    Interview

    Veru swiftly conducted. HR was very active. The Interviewers were not from the required subject area so had a hard time to explain what do I do. The immediate to be supervisor explained things in a very ambiguos manner. Was not straight and beating around the bush. He did not have any idea on what he was to interview about.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accenture in March 2010.

    Interview

    The position was for a data warehouse project management job with Microsoft. It was contract to hire. The technical portion was mostly involved with the data warehouse process for a migration of data from a huge source system into a star schema with multiple fact tables. I received points for speaking about the problems in performance when using a snow flaked model and how to partition using mini-dimensions. Dr. Kimball's methodology was discussed at length. We spent time on data quality issues and data profiling in particular. Reporting was glanced over as this was mostly to produce the data and data structure to pull reports.
    The project management portion was almost exclusively concerned with the use of MS Project. I got the question of "What are the best practices when using MS Project?" I had not reviewed anything on MS Project and did not do well. The best practices were all so obvious that I wouldn't have thought they were anything other than standard. All other project questions were not difficult. I would have thought they used an Agile methodology but they didn't.

    Interview Questions

    • What are best practices for using MS Project?   1 Answer
    • Can you provide some differences between Inmon and Kimball methodologies?   1 Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Accenture in April 2010.

    Interview

    Recruiter was professional, up front and honest. She loved my skill set (I was a perfect match for this unique PM) but told me they like to place people ~5K lower than my current salary.

    Didn't get passed on to the next step, but she did forward my resume onto other in-house recruiters

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Accenture in May 2010.

    Interview

    HR had sent me CV to the wrong department and that also an old version of my CV!! The person who took my interview was conducting it for a role which did not match the JD provided to me by HR.AFter a few minutes in the interview, this became clear. The interviewer was a nice person and took my skill details so that he could forward it to the correct department. I wrote to HR after the interview and never heard from them

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accenture in July 2010.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me (I am an Independent Consultant) about a contract project with Accenture. Recruiter and Account Manager conducted 2 separate phone screens/interviews. Very Professional. All went well.
    1 week later, Accenture requested a phone interview which was scheduled for 4:30 pm.
    I received a call from the Recruiter at 4:15 pm (yes, 15 minutes before the interview), who said that Accenture had just informed him that the position would be filled internally.
    Outcome: No interview. Recruiter was apologetic about Accenture's cancellation.

    I recently received a call from a recruiter in NYC with a perm job opportunity at what he described as "the number 1 consulting firm in the world." I asked "Is this position with Accenture?" He said "Oh, God, no... I wouldn't do that to you."

    Based on online research it seems that Accenture, like most of the top consulting firms, is plagued by work culture problems and high turnover/ "jump ship" rates.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture in December 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process took three rounds. It looked like a good fit. I was offered the role, I accepted it, but they later pulled the offer back.
    Glad I did not resign from my old (and still current job).

    The HR rep apologized numerous times, I felt it reflected badly on them.
