    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    An employee referred me, within 2 weeks I received a call from HR to set up a time for a phone interview. The phone interview was about half hour, going over the background of my resume, and the travel aspects of the job. I received an email shortly after to set up a face to face interview with another HR rep. This interview was about 45 minutes, mostly behavioral questions regarding my past experiences, why Accenture, and how I dealt with conflict. After the interview I was contacted by HR again to let me know that I would be moving forward to the last stage - 2 back to back interviews with sr.managers. Both of them would have to be in agreement in order for me to get hired. The back to back interviews were more intensive. The first manager actually reviewed my university transcript and commented on my courses I was taking. Both the managers went through more behavioral questions and asked more about my technical experience skill set. The turnaround time was really quick. I did the interviews on a Friday, and by Monday morning HR had called me to let me know I had received an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Accenture in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Actually interviewed in 2006 (this year not available under the drop-donw) on campus so I don't remember the details very well.

    First round was screening to see if I know what the company does (travel expectations etc.) and if I am interested and generally presentable...

    Second and final round consisted of two interviews: one with a senior manager and one with a partner. Both were behavioral interviews... only question I remember now is "what makes you think that you will be good at this job?"
    Despite the tone of this one question, the interviewers were generally very nice.

    Written test, tour, 3 stage process of interviews with 3 tiers of management. First interview had 2 people, 2nd part was the first stage's boss, and the last was the top boss of the 2nd interviewer. Asked some silly questions about their own company's smtp server address. Why would you need to know that before you started working there?
