Capital Markets Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in June 2014.
Interview Details first round was a skills interview followed by a HR interview
The Skills Based interview focuses on your past experience. What was your specific remit and responsibilities in your last role? What were the nature of the roles you have worked on? How complex were they? What have you achieved? Where you have excelled in past roles? Where do you want to take your career?
The interviewer is simply looking to answer the question can you do the job, what does your experience cover and where are your limits.
Accenture will only be focussing on relevant experience to the role which will typically focus on large scale change and transformation opposed to BAU / Support roles (avoid talking about the latter).
They will be looking to try and gauge what level of seniority you could be aligned to within Accenture and there are often questions around past responsibilities (including typical stakeholders engaged, size of budgets, team leadership and mentoring).
Format – typically the interviewer “dives right in” with questions and makes time at the end for you to ask questions and discuss Accenture and the specific practice / opportunity.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accenture in March 2014.
Interview Details Applied online in March 2014. Got phone interview 2 days later. The telephone interview least for 1 hour, including a mini case study in the end. There are motivation questions, e.g., why do you choose consulting and Do you know of any projects Accenture has worked on?. (prepare as much as cases you can, they asked me 4 but I only prepared 3....). Other questions are competency based, such as example for leadership, example for teamwork and example for improving a process. The case study was not to difficult but you need make sure your answers are logical.

Interviews were professional, each started out with a few general questions and some small talk.

Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Accenture in April 2014.
Interview Details I had only one phone interview which was straight forward. The assessment center is the hardest one, but if you prepare its fine. Just remember to be calm and to be aware of the time.
Interview Question – assessment center was quite straight forward, but they ask you some tricky questions in the last interview stage at the end of the ac regarding the case study you were doing with the group. The trick is to remain calm and just answer as you think and make sure you justify! View Answer
Analyst Consulting Group Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in May 2014.
Interview Details I submitted my application online after an employee referral and was contacted about 2 weeks later to set up a first round phone interview. There were three components to the interview. There were motivational/knowledge-based questions (Why do you want to work for Accenture? Who are some of Accenture's competitors?), behavioral questions (Tell me about a time when you displayed leadership qualities. Tell me about a time when you faced uncertainty and achieved greatness.), and a case study.
Interview Question – In the case study, the interviewer specifically stated what the main problem was that the company was facing. When she asked me to list three problems, I thought that I was supposed to think out-of-the-box and draw conclusions based on all of the information already presented, so I intentionally avoided reiterating the problem that she had stated first. Do not do what I did! My interviewer was clearly frustrated and I knew from that moment that I had no chance of progressing to the next round. Repeat what your interviewer says word for word and do not try to be creative with your answers. It is not what they are looking for. Best of luck! Answer Question
