    Analyst Consulting Group (Graduate Programmer) Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Filled out the online application, heard back within the week inviting me to a telephone interview.

    Telephone interview was split into three parts: questions about Accenture and why I wanted to work for them, competency-based questions ("describe a situation when...") and a short case study at the end. Was called the next day to invite me to an assessment centre.

    Assessment centre was only a morning (approximately 9.00am-12.45pm). There were a few un-assessed parts: manager presentation and Q&A with a current analyst, and two assessed parts: group exercise (split into groups to discuss solutions Accenture can offer for companies merging) and a 1-on-1 interview (part of this followed on from the solutions in the morning, the other part was asking about my understanding of and interest in Accenture).

    They said they will get back to us in 10-15 working days, so still waiting to hear on the outcome of my application.

    Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward interview process. There were three interviews with area managers and one HR interview. Excellent communication and status updates throughout. I felt they really cared about me as a person and they really wanted me to join the company. I also liked the technology aspects of the interview as I did one video interview where it was great to talk "in person."

    Software As A Service (SaaS) Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    A really supportive recruitment agency put me forward for this role. Initially I was successful on the phone interview with one of the senior consultants. But for the next stage luckily I had a contact who previously worked at Accenture and could give me some real advice about the culture and how to prepare for the more difficult competency-based HR questions which formed the second half of the 2.5 hour long 1:1 interview. Unfortunately, although the talk through my previous career with the Case MD started well, I struggled with the model scenario. After that the questions became quite personal and afterwards i realised that this may not be the type of company I'd be happy working for.

    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.

    Capital Markets Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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.

    The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    First was a phone interview followed by 3 face to face interviews spread over the course of 3 weeks. I'd prepare as I would for any job and research as much as possible. They seemed very interested in my personality, hobbies and achievements outside of work, so be prepared to talk about this.
