Very Easy Interview
Undisclosed Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Capgemini.
Interview Details I was contacted for a phone interview and given a questionnaire that I spent an hour of my precious time completing. I think my salary expectation was beyond what they could offer and the HR there didn't respond even after I followed up via email.
Very bad taste in my mouth right now. Apparently this HR person eats you up and chews you out if they have no use for you.
Senior Consultant Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Capgemini.
Interview Details The hiring process starts with submitting your resume. After that when accepted you will get a phone call in which capgemini expresses their interest in you, nothing special. This phone call will be followed by a formal letter in which they express their interest in you. This letter also contains an invite for an interview. The interview is pretty standard. They asks you about your work history, what your ambitions are and why you think you are the right person for the job. When this interview is going well they will immediately inform you that they want to proceed to the next stage of the hiring process. The final stage of the hiring procedure is a skill assessment and psychological review.

Very Easy Interview
Senior Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
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 (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
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.
