    Accenture Technology Solutions Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Accenture in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Fairly long application form, then 40-minute phone interview, and finally face-to-face HR and skills-based interviews (1 hour each)

    The face-to-face HR interview was basically a repeat of the phone interview, and I didn't get any programming-related questions at all (not even in the skills-based interview). I'd recommend brushing up on Accenture as a whole (including the difference between ACG and ATS), as well as knowing the general software development life-cycle like the back of your hand. In addition, a few more specific methodologies (like Agile and spiral) would be pretty good to know.

    Interview Questions
    • Comparing the Agile development model to the waterfall model. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each approach?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I wasn't comfortable about their work culture.

    Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application online, and the following day I was invited for a phone interview.
    I prepared for the phone interview by learning a few of Accenture's client cases, understanding the graduate scheme and what would be expected of me as an analyst. I also practiced competency questions on teamwork, dealing with challenges etc.
    I passed the phone interview and attended an assessment centre.
    The day consisted of a group activity based on a video case study. It lasted thirty minutes and we had to work together to come up with solutions for different categories. Based on our chosen solutions we had to complete an individual project planning exercise. Then we had a 1:1 interview with a consultant where we discussed our reasoning for the structure of our plan. I was also asked some of the competency questions that had come up in my phone interview.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no particularly difficult questions, just make sure you know a few case studies. If I had not prepared for this I would have found it really difficult.   Answer Question

    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 Employee in London, England
    Anonymous Employee 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
