Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Toronto, ON

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2013.

Interview Details The process started off with a 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter, where I briefly went over my previous experience. Then I had another interview, over the phone, with an interviewer from the US, where I was asked several situation-based questions. The questions that were asked helped the interviewer get a better idea of my experience. My last two interviewers were in person with two different managers. They asked similar questions to the ones asked in the second phone interview and questions to identify my technical skills. Two days after my final interview, I was offered the position.

Technology Consulting Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details I was contacted via email notifying me of an interview the following week. In the whole process there are 4 interviews. The first interview was pretty casual. We spoke about my past experiences and how they have influenced me up until now and how they will help me in the future. The interviewer asked a lot of spin off questions from my resume. He let me do a lot of the talking and at some points it was very conversational.

Interview Question – How can you apply your Finance degree to the job you will be doing?   Answer Question

Technical Analyst Interview

Technical Analyst

Interviewed at Accenture

Interview Details On campus recruiting, be sure to go to company presentations to have a good understanding of the culture and what they are looking for beforehand. Total process was three weeks.

Process was three tiered. First was a screening interview on why you were interested in Accenture, second was behavioral, third was back to back interviews in the offices.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time in which you realized that what was due by a deadline would not be completed and what actions you took.

Followed up with questions gauging emotional state at the moment of realization.

PMO Analyst Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Mississauga, ON

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in August 2013.

Interview Details The recruiters at this company are extremely prompt, regardless of the response, and always get back to you as promised. It took about 2 weeks for a recruiter to get in touch with me, after I went through an employee referral. For this particular position, I went through a 4-step hiring process: phone-interview with recruiter, 1-hour situational interview, 2 in-person interviews on the same day with two team leads. The interviews were all skills based and situational always looking to relate the position requirements with previous experience. At the first recruiter interview, they let you know what to expect throughout the process.

Interview Question – Questions weren't "difficult" per se, but you evidently had to reiterate your experiences to answer them - the interviewers were extremely kind, and were open to conversing different ways I could go about a situation if I hadn't personally had experience from a previous job. They were also open to experiences outside the workplace - they were open to experiences from extracurricular activities and academic experience, as well.   Answer Question

Management Consultant Interview

Management Consultant
Toronto, ON

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Accenture in May 2012.

Interview Details Applied through campus recruiting, got a phone call and email 2 days later requesting an interview. The first round of interview has a lot of people competing. I recalled 8 people were interviewed for one position. The manager is actually quite impatient, didnt really have any interest to know you better rather want to judge how fast and well you react to his questions. He asked me questions non-stop, though most of the questions are pretty standard. When I talked a bit more he will just stop me and move to the next one. The interview lasted for one hour. Pretty Accenture culture I would say.
