Management Consultant Interview

Management Consultant

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.

Interview Question – Tell me about a situation where had to adjust to circumstances outside of your control.   Answer Question

Graduate Management Consulting Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

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.

Senior SAP Consultant Interview

Senior SAP Consultant
London, England

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Capgemini in March 2013.

Interview Details Telephone interview followed by face-2-face in London

Interview Question – Interviewer more interested in showing how smart he was. Stupid questions like ' what was the name of the character in this film ? ' Interviewer concentrated on attempting to trip me up whilst showing how smart he was, Put me down at every opportunity. Asked questions about things that were not on my CV. Sample question : "how would you have converted the factory you worked at in to a lean manufacturing system ?" my response " i have not worked with lean manufacturing so cannot reply", response "you know FA about manufacturing then !" " no - i have 15 years experience". "not much of a SAP consultant are you !" " I am - and have 20 years experience to prove it !"   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Infrastructure Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

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

Infrastructure Architect Interview

Anonymous Employee
London, England

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Details Interview process was a telephone interview followed up by a 2:1 interview with a panel of two senior architects. There was a role-play where the two Capgemini people were two senior executives from two merging divisions of a fictional prospective customer. A 45-minute preparation window was given to put together a 15 minute presentation on the prospective customer's scenario. The presentation was designed to show how well you could tailor messages to specific needs and preferences, and to judge content creation and delivery skills.

Interview Question – Why should we do business with Capgemini over everyone else?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was straightforward. They were amenable to compromise but had hard limits that could not be breached. Conformance to HR policies was very strict and not negotiable in any way.
