    Interview process lasted months (8 !) - scattered and unclear. HR people were clear in their communications however there was not a clear timeline. After the confirming interview I was told 1-2 days to receive an offer. After 2 (!) months of stringing me along, they called to announce inability to hire

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Washington, DC (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    About one month from initial contact to offer acceptance. The process was fairly straightforward.

    - Initial screen with recruiter (about 45 minutes)
    - Role exploration and behavioral interview with Managing Director (60 minutes)
    - Three (two were onsite) additional skills and behavioral interviews with peer-level interviewers (60 minutes each)

    I knew before the final interview that I would likely receive an offer, based on how well all of the discussions went. All of the interviews were conversational, they all asked about motivation, personality type (what motivates you), provided great insight into the corporate style of Accenture, and were all very sharp people oriented leaders.

    I was contacted by the recruiter about one week after the final interview where we talked high-level numbers. I had another offer from a technology company that came with a generous base salary and bonus. Not only did Accenture match the base salary, they more than doubled the sign-on bonus. Needless to say, I took the offer and look forward to starting soon.

    Interview Questions

    • What type of work energizes you?

      If you were preparing for your first conversation with a CIO, how would you advise them on the things they are not doing well?

      Describe a time when you had to deliver tough feedback to a client? To a team member?

      Describe Human Centered Design (HCD) and why it is critical to digital transformation?

      What does Inclusion and Diversity mean to you? How do you create and promote I&D?

      (During some of the interviews, I made use of the whiteboards and markers to illustrate different approaches and methods to solving a problem. I would highly recommend doing this if you are comfortable with the subject matter.)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    Skills interview followed by situational interview. Skills interview conducted by a hiring manager to really gauge the potential match. Situational interview is canned questions which limits the interview in responding to questions and also the scope of the interview is not well defined based on the role.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Accenture (El Segundo, CA (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Need to improve reputation management by treating prospective employees as if they were prospective clients. Which, in fact, we are! I was ghosted by Accenture after 4 rounds, never got declined. I followed up with recruiter 3 times, she said she was waiting for "next steps" from leadership. Finally, I asked her if I could go ahead and apply to other roles at Accenture while she was waiting for "next steps." No Answer, ever, and no decline.
    Additional point, in each interview I was asked the same question 3 different ways: could I travel and did I have potential conflicts that could ever get in the way? Essentially, trying to determine if I were a parent. Even after I answered yes to 100% travel, they asked the same question a different way - at every interview.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Interview #1: Head hunter
    Interview #2: Internal Recruiter
    Interview #3: Situational
    Interview #4: Skills

    Very slow moving interview process with a lot of delay between each interview. Interviews 1 thru 3 were with bright, engaging, intelligent people. Always ask the recruiter about the background of the next person interviewing you, especially if they do not have a LinkedIn profile.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational Interview Question: How did you build a strong relationship with a stakeholder?   Answer Question
