Hi all,

Would like some tips from those who have gone through (or have friends who have gone through) interviews@Accenture. notworthy.gif

1. What's the process like? How many rounds of interviews do we have to go through before getting an offer?
2. Any aptitude or technical tests? Is the technical test hands-on or paper test? As in they give you a paper with 50 questions for you to do on the paper or put you in a room with a computer for you to code?
3. What kind of technical questions do they usually ask for people in .NET field? Some example/type of questions?


Thanks in advance! notworthy.gif

i assume you're applying for technical position?
3 interviews for experienced people.

1- phone interview to ask your expected pay, notice period, and some basic stuff.

2- interview with senior manager. will last about 1 hour or more, with questions ranging from unit testing, technology questions, scenarios, etc. Basically about everything in terms of technical.

3- interview with dept head. he/she will let you know about what you're going to do, what they can pay you, etc. Just to meet up with you.

If not wrong, fresh grad might need to go through more interviews.

yeah, for experienced technical position with .NET skillset. I suppose the 2nd session is the most important that will determine whether you get it or not.

unkn0wn, from your description, does that mean the whole process is all verbal interviews? Or will there be hands-on as in they give a scenario, then you have to program the solution on a laptop or write it on a whiteboard or something?

There are actually two directions, if you are entering for a technical position such as a programmer then I am not too sure but if you are entering as an analyst under the consulting workforce the interview process is as follows.

1. Interview with manager
2. Interview with senior manager
3. Interview with senior executive

Usually the questions they ask are not that technical related. They are very thorough in their questioning so be prepared. They would expect you to have very good communication skills and be precise and deep in your answers. The last interview with the senior executive can be anything under the sun so it really depends on your luck.

For example, a simple question like, "Explain a situation you were in before where you had a hard deadline". You can give a very simple and broad based answer and mention that you called a few people to discuss etc etc. Then they will ask you what you said during that phone conversation and how did it impact the project/situation or how the end receiver of your call would react to the situation.

Remember to ask as many questions and do your homework. Check out the other interview sections of this forums. If you carefully study it and work with it, you shouldn't have any problems. It is also good to rehearse explaining certain situations you have been in.

The very common situations are:
- When you showed leadership qualities
- Hard deadline
- Had to work with a difficult member of the team

Thanks guys. Much appreciated.

Though i have a few more enquiries. Will they make an offer during the 3rd interview? Or they will call and let you know that you're successful later on? If so, how long do you have to wait after the 3rd interview for an offer? A week or so?

Sometimes it really depends on how well do you do during your 2nd interview. If you did very well then by the 3rd interview you would get a confirmation. But there are cases whereby people failed it during the 3rd interview.

Have you completed your 3rd interview? If you attend any interview and don't get a reply in a week's time, just give them a call and ask about your application.

Mavik, are you currently attached with Accenture? What's the working environment like? And no, i have not completed the 3rd interview but it has been arranged. I went for 2nd interview in the morning and the response was rather quick as i received a call from them in the evening itself to schedule for 3rd interview which they termed as a Closing Interview.

During the 2nd interview, i was told that they're recruiting for the Technology Solutions team and there might be 1, if not 2 (?!?), more interviews after that. Wonder what that's about since from what i heard they are only 3 interviews as told by Mavik and Unknown.

But since they said the upcoming one as a Closing Interview, i sure hope it's the last as it's rather difficult for me to keep taking leaves in my current company. Anyone under Accenture Technology Solutions workforce here? What's the working environment like?

As for the salary... fresh grad at 3K huh?? hmm... makes me wonder if i should have quoted my expected salary differently tongue.gif

In general I would say that both workforces work just as hard but the pay is definitely different by miles apart. Also benefits differ for these two workforces.

Hi wling, during the 1st and 2nd interview, what questions do they ask you?? I was requested to attend an interview session at KLCC with them next week. The email stated it is the 1st round interview out of 3 rounds.

What are the questions they asked?? More to technical questions or IT management??

Btw, how is your 3rd round interview go? Did you manage to get the job??

Okay joking, actually they got some acceptable ammount of 'meal allowance', and RM 14 is way too much smile.gif slightly less then that.

and it also depends on individual, some poeple can get travel allowance, based on their travel distance to client side.

2 me Accenture is not really a very good company

they only pay their account analysts (fresh grad) for rm1,700, minimum need 2 work 48 hours per week exclude lunch, alternate saturdays need 2 go back also and d other sat are on call, if team member is sick or wat, u have 2 go replace them

and there is no OT paid, u can just use those OT to change it 2 leaves

they only pay their account analysts (fresh grad) for rm1,700, minimum need 2 work 48 hours per week exclude lunch, alternate saturdays need 2 go back also and d other sat are on call, if team member is sick or wat, u have 2 go replace them

and there is no OT paid, u can just use those OT to change it 2 leaves

That is for their services line within the outsourcing group. Read this thread more or other threads and see that their consultants are highly paid.

You can try applying to BAT GSD @ Technology Park Malaysia. I left IBM for BAT because the staff benefits are much better. While I was with IBM as a total fresh graduate, my salary was 2500+300 of shift allowance. Currently, at BAT as a fresh graduate with only 6 months of working experience, my salary is 3400. I told my manager that my expected salary was 3000 but to my surprise, I was offered 3400! In addition, you can claim OT allowance when necessary. Working hours are not very long and flexible. I work 8 hours everyday including the 1 hour lunch break whereas most other companies require you to work 8 hours everyday excluding your 1 hour lunch break.

MY colleague's fwen is an SAP Trainee at accenture and she earns only RM1k/per month...not sure about the pay after the training is completed.

Btw,bout the interview..guess it kinda depends on ur luck too...as in when u're gonna get called(if u get called)

In my case,
1st week
- Monday morning clicked to apply the job.
- Monday afternoon they called to enquire a little about what im doing now and my skills.
- Wednesday morning they called to inform about my 1st interview

2nd week
- Monday..1st interview.HR told me there will be 3 interviews altogether; 1st related to skills.2nd related to behaviour and personality. 3rd with the higher mgmt.
- Wednesday..they called and tell me i am required to go for 2nd interview

3rd week
- Monday..2nd interview..the interviewer informed that there will be no more interviews coz i've reached the decision point already..
- Monday...30mins after interview...they called to tell that they are taking me in.


I've got a colleague who also applied for the positions i applied for....til today...no news yet....

Hmm...this is an interesting thread. To those who are affiliated with accenture, what are the positions that could be offered to those in the engineering field? A quick overview of the main website gives a few ideas but i would like to hear some opinions from those on the inside.

A friend's brother actually works at accenture and is sent out to handle a project in Sarawak lasting 2 years. Which section/department personnel are most likely to be sent out and about? Or is it more to a position/seniority/skills issue? Speaking of long hours without OT, National Semiconductors and Infineon (not to sure on this) also practise this policy. However, the starting pay for fresh graduates is quite good (RM2.8k) in the IT field considering that the expenses in Malacca aren't as exorbitant as in KL.

It's the type of skills that a project needs and depending on your availability. In other words, luck plays a big part too.

associate software engineer, they are willing to pay you 2.5k basic.. if your result is good enough for fresh grads(cgpa 3.5 above)
if + OT + allowance everything, you can get up to 3k...

The interviewer also told me that within 3 years you can be promoted up to 5 positions (if i'm not mistaken) and your salary will be within 4-6k (depending on your latest position)

The office is really nice.. they got this bar and then place where people can lepaking...

Hahahaha... tempted to join them but still considering my options

whenevr u applying, check which "Accenture" is posting the job.

If its mentioned Consulting, then you can expect 3K+ for fresh grad. If its mentioned Solutions or Services, you can expect the same rate as outside.

Yes, Consultants are golden babies for Accenture. So when u joined ACN, its really affect which workforce u r in. More benefits, less benefits, different scheme and all. Consultants work hard and they get solid cash. Solutions (programmers) and Services work hard too, but you definetly got lesser that what the Consultants get, hehehe... fair?

ACN very suitable for ppl who want experience, and dare to work late and so on.. after all, u got the brand name in ur CV.

guys, any comment on the consultant post?

I heard in accenture, there's a specific order of career progression. When you joined, you'll be an analyst , and then after 3 yrs, you'll progress from there onto more senior roles.
Any idea what's the benefits like now?
Appreciate your comments on this.

Accenture pay super high thru the ceiling,but expect to work for every sen !
Sometimes or more of,most of the time you have to work your ass of on Sat n Sundays too! Yes,they pay 6k for 2 years experience in consulting which is pretty high but you really have to work and sacrifice a lot of time .Besides,your work has to be supremely good if not your appraisal will be shit!

Accenture pays extremely well,but they really demand alot from you.Sometimes its too taxing thats y my friend with RM 7.5k job left Accenture.

Typical sales spiel.

Do you even see yourself at the company in 3 years' time? With the current climate for jobs, anyone staying above 2 years in the same company is considered extraordinary, especially in companies like Accenture.

They're good but quite overrated.

hmm.. very dilemma.

Actually i want to try my luck with Accenture. I currently working in a shtting company for more than 4yrs as Java developer. After so many replied, i can see that

Accenture is
- paying u high if u r capable.
- work for long hrs
- work in weekend
- squeeze u until last drop.

Compare with my company
- working hr start ard 9 - 10:30 depend.
- work for long hr is needed. I worked 24hrs be4, and tat is not my jobscope >.<
- involve in deployment pahse as well. And normally start from 12am to 6am. which is not my jobscope as well.
- now need to do everything from A to Z due to lack of developer. Meeting with client/internal staffs, development, train fresh grad, compose technical spec.
- step into production support if any issues that too technical for support dept to handler.
- work weekend claim OT based on salary. Which means, salary/22/8*1.
-bonus very subjective, need to fight n fight with mgmt to get, feel like begger.
- no company event, no refreshment, only company dinner provided once a year.
- Any allowance claim submitted need 3 - 6 months to process.
- work alone as all exp developers resigned. And if u r senior, need to do all tasks tat they think u might capable to do so.
- salary pay can be unstable. Last yr economy crisis, i get half pay @ the early of the month and another half pay @ the middle of the month and this scenario last for more than 6 months.

So what u guys think about? which company is better?

Hi, I sincerely hope I'd receive some tips here, I'm going to have my closing interview this coming friday, is there any1 here that can possibly provide me with some insight info on what that interview would be like, how long it'd take, questions asked, etc?

I've searched this forum and the official site, but it seems that the information provided on the closing interview is very vague..


Added on May 4, 2010, 12:26 pmI've got the job =), and thanks for all the good tips on the previous pages

Can you share more about fresh graduate program. Is it in-house training , training-period, allowance and so on? Will we get a chance to get absorb on a permanent position afterwards?

i just went for my 2nd interview on tuesday and i just want to share my interview experience here. hope this will be able to give applicants a rough idea about the interview.

the 2nd interview is a behavioral interview, very different from the first interview. gather all details on your past experiences-latest events and projects (1 or 2 years ago). depending on the interviewer, you might be asked about 3 to 4 questions. i got 3.

questions are such as:
"describe a recent event where you face the toughest situation, describe in terms of when, how, what happened, using key points such as meetings, discussions and etc. "

"...an event that you feel is your personal achievement..."

"...a situation where you feel you had more problems then you can handle..." (i can't remember word by word but close).

"...why do you think communication is important..."

during the interview, they will probe you so as to direct you to the right direction. they will ask in between, "so, what is your feeling at that moment?", "what is your/their reaction?","can you describe what happened during the discussion?", "who initiate the meetings?","were you satisfied with the result?", and sometimes, they ask for the names of your project team members. throughout the interview, they will jot down details but dun worry about this. basically, if you prepare your answers using the STAR approach, i think you should be fine.

my interviewers are very friendly. they briefed me on the interview before we started. the interviewing environment is comfortable, kinda like chatting.


but i guess i din make an impact then because i have not recieve any phone call from them. sad.gif keeping my fingers crossed.

good luck to you guys!

From the way you explained it here and you also know how to use the STAR approach, i think your chances are still high.

My experience with the ACN interview process was good. They were very efficient, so the whole application process took me about 2 weeks only.
Basically, they are quite structured in their hiring process. Just like what the company does. haha! tongue.gif
As far as I know, the 2nd interview is the most crucial part in your application. The 3rd one is just a formality interview, a closing interview whereby you'll meet their partner. It was also quite a nice chat with the partner, just a casual chat and discussion about your expectation at ACN.

Goodluck to you pacmann! biggrin.gif

I'm applying for SAP trainee early this month. Got a phone call interview last week, later then go for an interview yesterday and aha! got a confirmation call today. Maybe for trainee it's not so sophisticated as other experience job in Accenture.

Great to hear that! smile.gif

Basically, it’s a non-technical interview. Just they want to see that u have some ideas what is SAP, how this platform helps businesses, good logical and analytical thinking, plus your commitment towards the program if being selected.

It’s a good to have some basic IT knowledge but for me isn’t compulsory. Since according to the manager interviewed me, even a non-IT background also being hired after this 3 months SAP Graduate Trainee program.

I reckon that the questions that they may ask could be differ from one person to another.

BTW, All the best to u then! biggrin.gif

ya... the manager didn't ask me about SAP at all.. we discussed about my working experience (tho its just only for 10 months) for the entire interview session...

but i forgot to ask, this grad trainee program would they push us into solution line or consultancy line. LOL. i prefer to be in the consultancy line rather than solution...

i just think dat a company should pay its employee adequately, accenture working hours is a bit 2 long for me with dat pay

jean, i feel u..........heard this kind of things also.......basic is high but the rate of ppl leaving is high. imagine having to do 2-3 ppl job...........also heard that their tech team has less than 20ppl(L1 & L3) but supporting all the client users (nearly 10k), infra and also L3 server to support desktop. the one who is still staying is either overpaid and underworked or are waiting for 'opportunity'

Being honest, long working hours is depends how well u manage ur tasks. Nobody here will lock u up after working hours. Ppl keep saying long working hours is they fail to manage their tasks on hand. Can't just blaming that Accenture = Long working hours company. But if u're looking for overpaid and pressure-less working environment ( for new joiner )...Please dont think about accenture, it's gonna be nightmare for u.

I applied for internship at Accenture and got through the first phone interview, and tomorrow I'll be going to Greenpacket building for second interview.

Is it normal for interns to go through two interviews? I also had to fill up another application form in the process, which was different than the internship one, I assume it's for a permanent position. They also asked me to read up on IT Solutions workforce.

Any tips? smile.gif

I'm supposed to fill in the application form to Accenture now.

What is the expected salary that I am supposed to be putting?

And what's the difference between Honors/Postgrad and 1st degree?
Honors does not equal to a degree? My degree is from the UK, it comes with a honors.

Just fill in the normal market rate. Don't worry accenture is fair and won't follow exactly what you put in your application. All fresh grad gets the same pay.

ACN emailed that that they will call me to arrange an interview with me next week. Is this the screening interview?

From what I have read through the thread (the 1st time I have read an entire thread, post by post), the 1st is a technical interview, 2nd behavioural, and 3rd closing.

ACN told me that they are looking at putting me into the Finance and Performance Management side of consulting. Should I read up on Corporate Finance, Finance Operations and Enterprise Performance Management?

I applied for graduate programme (technology consulting) and they called me for a phone interview on the next day, I went to the final stage interview yesterday, did case study+group assesment+1 on 1 interview, there were other 3 candidates as well. I was told the outcome of interview session will be informed in 1-2 week time.

Wondering how big the chance of me getting in, although I made in through to the final stage. Anyone here has similar experience? Is there any possibility they reject all 4 of us?

guys. you should prolly just wait it out. i am confident they are keeping you guys well in their view if you would be shortlisted. i seriously doubt that you would just slip out of their radar.

This is the structure for ACN's Management Consulting internship interviews for 2012:

Round 1: Initial CV/Resume Screening (after ~1 week of application)
Round 2: Human Resources Phone Interview; basic CV screening & English proficiency test (after ~1 week of Round 1)
Round 3: Interview with Manager; behavioural questions; career aspirations; understanding of role & ACN (after ~1.5 weeks of Round 2)

I would assume for Graduate roles there would be a Fourth Round which would involve group case study work, 1-1 Case study work & further psychometric tests.

All the best!

Hi Guys,

I am currently being interviewed with the Accenture so far.

1 Round: Recruiter screening
2 Round: Detailed skills interview in java for about 2 hours
3 Round: Behavioral interview.

I am scheduled for 4th Round which is closing interview. My question is all these rounds has been on phone and they say that there is no on-site interview at all. Has this happen anytime before. The position is in Technology solutions.

And any tips for the closing round interview?

Thanks

Just a note,

The interview process is slightly different for people who's studying in the UK.

There are only 2 rounds.

First round is a sudden telephone call from HR, asking what u know about the company, what u work wanna work as and salary expectations etc.

2nd round is an assessment centre. Involves Case Study, Group Exercise and short Interview.

After that, you just wait for results.

I did the first interview on-the-phone yesterday and just did the online behavior assessment earlier for Consultancy fresh grad program. Now waiting for the outcome.

On a side note, I also received a call for Solutions fresh grad program a mere minutes after I completed the online behavior assessment. Explained that I already received a call for Consultancy and was advised to wait for the outcome of the earlier before perhaps trying for the latter.

I got a call from accenture HR, probably more than a month ago.

Went through 2 rounds of face to face with senior managers and now I'm scheduled for a 3rd (4th if you take into account the first phone interview with HR)

My question is how many rounds are there?

Position is MC analyst. fresh graduate.

hmm ... no idea.. I just talked to ACN ytd night and that was the 2nd call. Your interviewers didn't brief you on the process? The interviewer told me ytd that there are 2 more rounds to go.

No idea what position - I'm still exploring =D I'm asking them what can they offer instead - probably MC in analytics, risk management, or strategy.

Hello All,

I have got my bachelor of honors from UK and master from Malaysia. Interview process seemed totally different than what you all are talking about.

1- I got a call from HR and asked to fix a time for interview.
2- I went for interview in the client side building and spent 20 mins with the Accenture HR interviewer. He asked about technical concepts verbally.

The week after I got a call from their client saying that Accenture interview was positive and you will get a call from them to fix your contract. (the title of the job is still not clear)

So based on what you guys say, I guess that was a PRANK call lol ? Did any one go through my experience before? What will go on next? I am totally confused and lost!

I would appreciate your comments and advice smile.gif

You can always check with Accenture Malaysia if the person who interviewed you really do work with them I suppose? Also, your case could be a special one. Even when I went for my interview day (the case study + group activity + one-on-one interview) their HR mentioned that there is no fixed recruitment processes. Depending on different factors, more interviews may be conducted. So yeah, there is no one way for them to do their recruitment process. It may vary.

Just be prepared to answer questions like why you want to take up consulting, etc. The case study, for me it wasn't hard, you just need to act and think like a consultant. I don't know about the others and how they thought about it so different people may give you different views on how easy or hard the exercises are.

yes, I am actually quite curious with 2yr experience what kind of salary range ACN can offer...

because if you start in ACN from fresh grad after 2yr time i think u will be promoted to consultant level already, the pay structure sure is different from analyst level...so is it still worth to join after 2yr exp ?

The 2 years experience if relevant can be taken in. Otherwise it might not be fully accounted. For example, I had 2 years engineering experience but it wasn't relevant at all. When I started as an analyst, I had 6 months credit.

I just went to Accenture for interview like 3 weeks ago for second time .Net developer.

there was 3 paper tests and the time was pretty short to answer.

i recall the first time i go interview in 5 years ago for Java developer, there 2 papers and only give 1.5 hours to answer.

this is the company having a lot of tests and finish in a short time.

some MCQ likes at least 30, questions and answer more than 10.
by far this is the worst company for the test for me.

That will then depend on how well you have passed your interview and see how your past experience is relevant. For example, there are some people who say that they have done SAP but actually what they did prior to this was just as an end user perspective and not in ABAP or any of the function modules in terms of config and designing the process flows.

my impression of ACN wasn't that good after talking to the MD who interviewed me...

I must say ... as much as an interviewer is accessing you as potential employee... the employee (you) must actively access your future manager as well.

from the outset - so much politics - so much promises and empty talkings ... totally reversed the good impression I had for the previous two humble, honest and down to earth managers who managed the first 2 rounds interviews.

If you want... negotiate away with the final interviewer. Nothing stops you from going to consultant level - but bear in mind then your performance will be rated among your peers (consultant level). Now think those seasoned 2 or even 3 years experienced consultants and you are going against them. Its a bell curve - some have to fall behind the average... (that would mean little to no bonus and increment). But then again, if you think you can outdo those incumbents.. why not ?

if it is Management consulting you are talking about - if they want you... negotiate your pay. they seem to have lots of budget to pay. like, seriously.

In Accenture there's 2 popular division which is:

1. Consulting
2. Solution Workforce (SWF)

To enter Consulting, you must have these criteria:

1. Graduated from Overseas from top universities (or Local universities with good results also can - but i believe they have quota)
2. Speaks English very well
3. Pleasant looking

So its very hard to enter Consulting honestly because only gods know what is their requirement. The pros is, your starting salary is pretty high compared to other consulting firms (PWC, EY, others) and, you definitely learn alot. Come on, you are freshies don't expect to go back at 5 lah. If you don't want work late, go work with the government. The main key points you should consider to work with Accenture Consulting Malaysia is the experience that you will received, and also the salary is OK OK.

Secondly, the Solution Workforce. To enter SWF is pretty easy, local universities are most welcome. You'll received the same experience like the Consulting folks. Name it. Now the draw back it, with the equal number of work compared to the Consulting folks, your salary is HALF from what the Consulting folks received. They said its the industry standards which i don't understand? Other than salary, i also realized the Consulting folks usually look-down towards those SWF folks. Maybe because these Consulting folks feels "glamour" and proud" to enter the Consulting compared to those un-lucky SWF. So, i conclude the draw backs is the HALF salary compared to Consulting folks, and you have to prepared to accept the racist given by the Consulting folks (the Manager from Consulting would do the same as well FYI). Blame the entry criteria.

Conclusion, only work in Solution Workforce IF you did not receive any job offers. Last resort. Or else, ready to face the racism and low-wages salary.

Closing interview is usually just normal chat I believe.

not really accessing you anymore. However I don't speak for the firm. Just some random chat I have with friends who were inside.

my previous interview experience with Acc is that, the manager is good there and willing to tell you the info you needed. I flung the last interview with the big boss cause he is asking me to work day n night 7 days a week non stop. I also frankly tell him that on a project basis is ok but for long term basis is not possible. end up, tarak offer. The same question i throw to other manager prior to the last interview and they only said it depends on project. good luck those going there. smile.gif

4 months ++ in acn consulting.

if u go back on time later during ur performance review u will get "Not committing enough working hour" like wtf.

prepare for 'no life' environment as u join here. all ppl here work work work.

if single n no commitment then okay. if ladies n married, please reconsider brows.gif

project environment is really tough.

Interview at Accenture is so easy.. even if you are trying to fail the interview on purpose (trolling the interviewer), you will still get the job offer.

ah .... I beg to differ.

I actually did not pass the 2nd interview (face to face interview with so call manager/team leader). i think maybe because i stated my salary is not negotiable ... lol. (they want to pay me lower, more towards fresh grad even I have working experience)

also i say that working more than 12 hours is too long. (then he explain that most likely the current project will expect you to work until 12 am, weekend also need to work and says that last saturday and sunday also is working day).

so there goes .... if you plan to fail accenture interview, my two point is there.
