Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture in January 2012.

Interview

Recruited from campus. First interview was on the phone and the second interview was in person. Standard case style interview. They were helpful in setting expectations as to what to expect and the qualities they were looking for. I thought their process was very effective to ensure they got good fitting candidates for the type of work they do.

Interview Questions

    The first round interview was a ninety minute video conference that included a 45 minute case and 45 minutes of behavioral questions. The person that gave the case was not the same as the one who asked the behavioral questions. It was the same format on-campus for the second round. 1 longish case and 45 mins of behavioral. Medium difficulty cases involving some graphs and/or data output in both rounds.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY (US)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Needed to network heavily to get on the fire round of interviews. There were two case studies in R1. After getting shortlisted, there were three more case studies in R2. These interviews were very interactive, more of a conversation rather than a grilling session. The interviewer would tell about the case, and then they were looking for accuracy in math (no calculators allowed), relevancy of questions, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • All 5 interviews were cases. These include:
      - If you were hired by the Mayor of Pittsburg and told that he needed to solve the problem of qualified people emigrating from the city, how would you solve?
      - If a top company in the chemical industry is planning to acquire #3, how would you go about evaluating the idea?
      - If you were a truck driver, would you ask to be paid by the mile or by the hour?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Accenture (Chicago, IL (US)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    During the hiring process at business school, there two rounds of two case interviews each. There were four separate interviewers, and each interview was conducted one-on-one. The cases were standard business school cases. After the first round interview, I received a call that same day notifying me that I was advanced to the second round. Three days later I went to the downtown office, and sat for two more case interviews. One of these was with a MD, who ultimately made the hiring decision. I received another call while I was on my way home that same day, to notify me that I would be receiving an offer and generally outlining the pay package. All in all, everything happens very quickly and there's not much ambiguity behind the hiring process. Those who don't receive offers generally still get a phone call to provide them feedback on their interview and how they could improve.

    Interview Questions

    • During each interview, I was asked some form of "walk me through your resume."   1 Answer
