Programmer Interview

Programmer
London, England

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture in February 2012.

Interview Details Phone interview is first, it is a personal interview about yourself and your problem solving abilities.
If successful, one to two weeks later you will receive an email or call about having a second interview. This will be an in person, technical interview about what you have studied/are studying and they will be happy to go into detail. Talk passionately about what it is in technology that interests you - programming? Hardware? AI? etc. be positive!

Research Accenture in advance, look at case studies and competitors. Find out what separates Accenture from their competitors.

Interview Question – "Name a time when you worked in a team and things didn't quite work out"
There are lots of these style questions and you may find yourself exaggerating or extending the truth.
If so, make sure you end your "experience" with a solution. They're really looking for solutions, not problems. (This is interview 1; Phone)

Contract Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online - interviewed at Accenture in July 2013.

Interview Details Telephone competency (Basic) and general question interview with HR - Stage . I was not expecting a competency based question in Stage 1 of the interview process.

If success with phase 1, there will be a full competency interview with hiring manager.

I had an interview with the HR Representative on the 4th July, My file has now been passed to the hiring manager who will decide on my suitability for the role and called for a face to face interview. I have been advised this may take between 8 - 10 days.

More interview maybe required after the Stage 2.

Interview Question – How much do you expect to earn.

I was not prepared for this question....
