Accenture - Experienced Hire

Accenture

1). This Assessment Centre thingy, does it apply to senior/experienced hires (say,15 years experience)?

2). Contrary to the many posts here, I actually found the Accenture hiring process to be reasonably good. Got a call (which was followed up with an e-mail) advising on an initial tele-interview. Within 2 weeks, I received a call (and e-mail) confriming the 2nd interview - a face-to-face one.

It’s the usual telephone interview questions. Summarise your career, how you can fit into the company, etc. Make it more of a conversation.

this site is great. The questions I was asked were how is consulting job different than the job you are doing currently…describe about yourself in 2 mins…what is your management style…how you solved problem at workplace… did you faced any issues with colleagues at work and how you solved them…have you ever lead a team … in the end I was introduced abt accenture and area i would be working if selected. interview lasted for 30 mins… and awaiting results in 2 to 4 days :slight_smile: …So Awaiting !!!

Well, we should hear back within 2 weeks of the interview. I did not hear back. Assumed that I was unsuccessful. I did have an alternative though - and joined them.

LOL, interesting to point out that the Manager who conducted the first interview, the telephone one, left Accenture.

Hi,

Mine was a case study of a retailer in the north, trying to compete with the bigwigs (tesco, etc.).

This retailer has decided not to sell, this is stated, but start off here.

As the MD does not want to sell, need to fix things. Firstly, there’s employee morale being low. Then, the usual fixing of IT related issues, e.g. inventory, reduced truck rolls, etc. Talk about CRM and how you can use CRM to drive supply chain. Talk about the “ecosystem”, i.e. CRM drives SCM and it’s all linked. I got asked about an innovation solution, I just said having an online presence, where the new IT ecosystem helps drive customer personalisation.

Was the case study any ways relative to your area of experience ?
like you had a background of Supply Chain or any specific retail banking

Hi All

Appreciate if you can help me.

I’ve got my 2nd and final interviews coming up, which consist of the Senior Exec case study interview and the 2nd which is the HR Interview, can anybody give me any insight into what either of the interviews consist of.

I get that the case study is what it says it is but why does this interveiw consist of 1.5 hrs, surely it doesn’t take this long or does the Snr Exec want to go into more detail and ask me other questions.

How about the HR interview how is this one?

Thanks

H
