Accenture interview

AnonymousFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus for Accenture
Interview Process
Case Study Interview Telephonic interview HR Interview
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: The company has implemented a demand forecasting system and improved the forecast accuracy significantly. What operational processes will be affected, which process metrics will improve and what will be the financial impact?
Interview Experience
Case Details:
Basically, I had applied to the supply chain position and had done demand planning at my previous job. This case was more of discussion. We identified several planning processes in the company (inventory planning, transportation planning, facility planning) and discussed how each of them would be affected. We talked about the differences in sales and marketing forecasts. We talked about promotions and cannibalization. We then shifted our discussion to how marketing in U.S. uses AC Nielsen. Then we discussed the process metrics like no. of stock outs. I started talking about costs but then he said that would be financial impact. I couldn’t come up with many metrics. For the financial part, I wrote the formula for free cash flow and then discussed how each component will be affected.
I had a good connect throughout with the interviewer which helped me throughout the interview. I honestly told him which my top target companies were, also gave him the reasons. He seemed very convinced.
This case was based on the work I had done before. I was not very thoroughly prepared. I took time to understand what he wanted from the case. We had this interview on the AC lawns, where he gave me the case and went on a walk. I called him after 2 minutes and then started discussing in detail.
Interview Tips
Be thorough with what work you have done before Know why consulting and in case you have several shortlists, be prepared to answer what your target companies are and why?
Round 2

Telephonic interview

Interview Experience
This was a PI round with similar questions-Tell me about yourself?; Talk about your previous work experience?; What skills you bring?

  • Question 2: How will your previous manager describe you (your strengths and where you need to improve)?

Interview Experience
This was an exhaustive PI round and I was well prepared for standard questions. It lasted for about 45 minutes and another person was noting down something (don’t know what).

Accenture Consultant interview

I Applied for job through Personal Contacts for Consultant role at Accenture
Interview Process
Case Study Interview
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: You have to make a choice between 3 consulting offers that you have and you should prepare an issue tree analysing the situation.
Interview Experience
The theme of the interview was to test how I react when put under pressure and I think the way I responded to it is what clinched the interview for me. I think the interviewer was very aggressive in his questions and tried to make the questions as uncomfortable as possible for me.One learning that I would want to leave out of this experience is that it works better if you take a stand and are hard on that throughout. Just hang-in, by using different arguments possible or even repeat the same arguments in different ways but its important to just hang-in. For example, on the consulting vs. I-banking issue, there were moments when he dominated the discussion so much that I could have shifted my stance a bit but in hindsight that could have been fatal.
Interview Tips
Frankly, issue trees are ambiguous in the sense that you can cut the problem any which way and I made a 3 level issue tree. Don’t think I should give the one that I made here as benchmark because its easy to make any issue tree and then defend it. I presented the tree and the interviewer seemed to like how I did it. He raised a point that I missed incorporating information about the and adjusted my analyses promptly.

Interview Experience
For ACCENTURE, HR interview is very important. My first question was that if you are not selected for any software companies what will you do? I explained all the qualifications I have and expressed my interest to get into the software field. so he understood my positive attitude to be selected in any of the IT companies. My second question was what is your dream? Later he asked who is your rolemodel and why? I said it is my father and then explained why it is so. I worked as an executive member of IEI in the dept. So I explained that. He liked it. He asked tell me about NIT Warangal. I told very great about this environment. He said "perfect". I wished him "Thankyou" and came
Resources

General Tips
On that day the best HR from ACCENTURE visited the campus. It may be very rare to see such people on one stage I suppose. It was great feeling during PPT and during the group discussion and the interviews.
