    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    First round was a telephonic interview which was a typical basic interview to gauge communication skills and to understand my work experience, etc. This was conducted by a manager. Following the telephonic interview there was a face to face interview conducted by a Senior Executive. This was a case study based assessment. I was given a situation of company merger and 20 min. of time to study the case and prepare a strategy for the client from Systems Integration point of view. Usually for the case study there is no definitive answer, what they wanted to understand is your thinking pattern, ability to analyse the situation and different solutions/ options you can provide to the given problem. Following the case study there was a HR interview on the same day.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Accenture in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, had the new webcam interview process (HireVue), realtively straight forward but there is no leeway on the time you are allowed to answer the question (3 mins) so you must ensure you finish or be cut off mid-sentence. Up until this point it was well organised and a relatively painless process. Assessment day was fairly tough, very little time in the group session and it is luck of the draw as to what your scenario will be.

    Interview Questions
    • Although not a business case in the traditonal sense of the word, do ensure you have a grasp of the basic outline of these. You will be asked in a group to come up with a solution to a buisness case in which you are each given an area e.g. processes, technology etc and have to come to an agreement as to what action to take subject to budget and time constraints. Afterwards you will be privately asked to write a contingency plan for it and justify your answers.   Answer Question

    Analyst Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Accenture in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    There is a long application form designed to test the motivations of the candidate.

    The phone interview consists of general awareness questions about ACN, the role of a consultant and the industry. It is important to be able to discuss previous projects performed by the company (see case studies). The competency based questions are the classics (e.g. Give me an example of a situation when you...). They read a short case study and ask you to identify the key problems and suggest a solution(s).

    The test centre consists of a group exercise, individual project planning exercise and final interview. There is very little preparation that will help at this stage. I would recommend reviewing the project life-cycle and Gant charts.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Filled in online application form and was contacted a couple of weeks later for a telephone interview. Half an hour long interview covering competency question, knowledge of Accenture and a case study. I feel that I ultimately fell down on my lack of preparation for my case study and not having prepared enough for competency questions.

    Interview Questions
    • After naming IBM and Capgemini as Accenture's main competitors in technology I was pushed for even more, despite having named other companies already.
      Case study asked me to help a company who was having trouble integrating its systems but lacked funds to invest in a specific platform.

    Interview Details

    Clear, and concise process with good feedback. The start to finish of the process took longer than I anticipted and I need to contact them a few time to update on progress and to drive forward next steps. References and referee checking was the most through I have come across in my career. As a result this stage took some time

    Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Accenture in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    After applying, invited to a two round interview process. One with a Potentia Interview and another case interview.
    The Potentia is an article with a topic that has an ambivalent argument. Your goal is to summarize the article and then to explain why those statements were made, how would you deal with such a situation and give concrete examples. They will ask you to hypothetically assume what would happen in 5-10 years time. There is no right or wrong answers, but you should be talking as much as possible and repeat yourself as least as possible.

    Interview Questions
    • No real difficult questions. Just read about many topics and be ready to give your opinion on various subjects. The case was a regular management consulting case, with market sizing and pricing questions   Answer Question
