    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The questions were mostly competency based and your knowledge about Accenture.
    Some example would be why accenture/consulting, what does Accenture do, how does Accenture use its technology to help its clients.

    My case study was a little different, it's about a utility company being fines by regulators. Just be calm and ask the interviewer to repeat the paragraph or questions if you can't catch it.

    Got through to AC but haven't done it yet.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was semi formal, my manager had worked with hiring manager, plus a friend had moved across. Three sets of interviews , first consulting case, second technical and third HR. the consulting case was more role play. The technical interview went through all the projects from the past. The HR interview was agreeing on time of joining and delaying the reference check until i wanted my then employers to know of my planed move.

    Grad ACG Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Tough telephone interview (relatively) - 6 competency questions, usually organisations ask for 3. The other questions are available from wikijobs. I faired ok, but the competition must be very intense and didn't get an offer. I had prepared for the casestudy which was on a supermarket with out of stock products. I'm 99% sure my downfall was a lack of a very strong interest in technology, I didn't flag up much of an interest in it in the initial answers and in the case study, whilst I was good on the analysis, I didn't flag up where technology would be coming in (although I implied it in terms of analytics for example), and I didn't do well on the follow up q. on tech.
