    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Capgemini in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very efficient and engaged recruitment consultants who track your process and call you frequently to give you feedback or ask you haw you think you have done in the interview.
    The process takes a long time as there are many interviews and finding time with the interviewers is difficult
    Round 1: HR interview, Conf call
    Round 2: Competency interview. Senior Consultant. Conf call
    Round 3: Senior Consultant Competency/fit interview. Face to face
    Round 4: Case Study presentation and fit and skills interview with Head of Practice and Managing consultant.

    Case Study is to suggest improvements for a recruitment process and to explain the overall benefits of a mature processes as well as benefits for the different stakeholders.

    Interview Questions
    • They try to push you to the edge of your comfort zone to see how you react   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They start making a very low basic salary offer that you need to negotiate hard. Wierd system of flexible package where you decide how to use the flexible benefits. This is done to keep the basic salary low.

    • No difficult questions, have very little time to review the case study, but the things that you need to pick out are very easy.
      Capgemini are trying to be more private and less private sector, but I am not sure they really know what that means. From the outside it looks quite like one or two individuals trying to change thousands,,,, good luck with that!

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview Details

    Passed the online tests and then got the phone interview. Best thing to do here which worked is to create a series of flash cards on the likely questions you will get. They aren't trying to trip you up and will give you a bit of time to think about the answer. Passed this and now waiting for the assessment centre.

    Graduate Management Consulting Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their portal, after completing the application form I was swiftly invited through to the next stage which required taking an online verbal reasoning assessment. Unfortunately I did not pass this stage. Communications from Capgemini were very prompt, it clearly just wasn't meant too be. I would advise practicing on the SHL website and others before taking these tests as it helps to know what they are looking for from you.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview Details

    Applied via a generic jobs board on the internet, followed by a response a couple of weeks later for a phone interview. Phone interview consisted of a 1-on-1 analysis of my CV & experience to date with little reference to specific technical ability. This was followed by an invitation to 2nd interview - this time face to face. I was advised that this would be a 3 hour process consisting of role play, presentation, technical interview & general interview. On the day of the interview I was met by a member of the recruiting team & briefed on the order of the day. An hour or so of preparation & role play, followed by a presentation & then the technical & general interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • As part of the role play I was asked about data protection laws in Europe   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was straight forward, with their first offer & my first request both refused
