Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Vancouver, BC

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Capgemini in October 2012.

Interview Details The company was recruiting for Consultants and Sr Consultants (undergrads and MBAs). I applied through the university's career centre. I was granted an on-campus interview that consisted of 2 parts: a business case and some behavioral questions. I was nervous about the business case but it was actually very simple (geared towards undergrads I guess).

I was successful in this round and invited to attend round 2. The company invited 18 candidates (both undergrads and graduate students) to the 2nd round. This round consisted of being split into groups and working on a business case over a mediocre buffet dinner followed by a group presentation. The quality of candidates seemed to range dramatically. One person even showed up in jeans!

There was considerable time pressure for the case (by design) and it was fairly chaotic with everyone wanting to show off their "leadership qualities" so there was a lot of posturing and I thought all the groups' presentations were pretty weak (typical undergrad work , focusing on buzzwords but missing the big picture and lacking vision).

The next morning there were 2 more back-to-back interviews. At least there were free coffee and muffins.

SAP Staff Consultant Interview

SAP Staff Consultant
Toronto, ON

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.

Interview Details The process was standard hiring process for the most part. The initial interview was on the phone to get an idea of what experiences I've had and why I think I fit for the role. My success was determined by relating my listed resume experience to directly relate to the job. Doing this in narrative/story form was best.

Second round was in person interview with HR representative. Behavioural questions to see how you might react to potential challenges in the workplace.

Final round was a detailed case study and presentation. Majority of the challenge is in the presentation and being able to handle difficult questions. Solid analysis in your case study is obviously helpful.

Interview Question – Have you ever had to make a decision without having all the information? If so, how did you manage it?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No Negotiation

Field Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Capgemini in August 2009.

Interview Details It took far too long to get infront of the right individuals. When approched by the recruiter, this position was permanent full time, in the offer stage the position was changed to an 8 month contract. A total waste of time. It was interesting to see how the recruiter contacted me and needed my skills but in the end could not produce on the pre-discussed terms. The interview process was interesting starting with a phone call to qualify my skills, followed by a face to face with an existing SME, then by a face to face with the hiring manager, finally ending with a conference call with many SME's.

Interview Question – Please describe your latest project size?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Position type changed between the 1st and 4th interview. Changed from Permanent Full time to an 8 month contract.
