BDM Interview

BDM
London, England

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini in April 2014.

Interview Details Telephone Interview with VP, then follow up interview with SVP and then a case study / interview with VP and Sales Director.

Interview Question – 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!

I applied online and 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

Graduate Management Consulting

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Why have you applied to this particular programme/stream?   Answer Question

Infrastructure Consultant Interview

Infrastructure Consultant

I applied online and 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 Question – 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
