7.4 rating for Recruitment, based on 26 reviews
Please describe the interview process and assessments.
There was initial online testing. The next step was an assessment centre with planned activities and a few interviews. They were prompt in contacting me with the offer. I was working within 2 weeks of starting the process
Graduate, Sydney
The hiring process consists of an online assessment, followed by an assessment centre and then a final interview.
Graduate, Adelaide
Sent cover Letter and resume and went straight to AC. A very quick and easy process but unsure if you get the best candidates this way
Graduate, Melbourne
Interactive activities to demonstrate interpersonal skills.
Graduate, Melbourne
Interview and assessments were fine, not overly formal or strict
Graduate, Sydney
The interview process was good. I had 3 stages to go through - 1. Application 2. Online testing 3. Assessment Centre. The Assessment Centre was great because it involved interesting activities as well as assessed us closely on our strengths and weaknesses.
Graduate, Melbourne
It's improved exponentially since my recruitment process. Originally, it took 8+ months to get through 5 stages of recruitment with lots of following up to get things moving.
Graduate, Sydney
The first step was to submit a resume. The second step was to complete an online psychometric test. The third step was to complete an online interview which was recorded and then assessed (this step is no longer part of the recruitment process). The fourth step was the assessment centre which consisted of multiple activities where we worked in teams to complete a task or solve a problem, and were interviewed by senior level employees. The fifth step was an in-person interview with a Director. Overall, my experience of the hiring process was not great, because when I applied, the graduate program manager at the time was not managing the offers/interviews well. My interview with a Director was conducted 6-7 months after the assessment centre. I believe the hiring process is more streamlined and well-managed now.

Resume check, Psychometric testing, Assessment centre, Interview
Graduate, Melbourne
There were two rounds after my application got selected. I was asked to take psychometric test, on the basis of its results I was asked to come to assessment centre where we were judged on the basis of 4 activates which included, case studies, design thinking and personal interview.
Graduate, Melbourne
Straightforward and clear
Graduate, Sydney
Very functional and transparent process. Applied for the job through an advertisement on the graduate portal, undertook thorough online literacy, numeracy and psychometric testing, attended half day Graduate Assessment Centre where I underwent interview process with Head of SA. Was made a job offer and presented the contract within the next week.

What questions were you asked in your interviews?
What is your previous experience with consulting? How would you handle a situation where your team want to go in a direction that you don't believe is the best direction? What are some techniques to get a client on board? How do you interact in a team environment? What do you know about Capgemini?
Graduate, Sydney
In my interview, I was asked about my understanding of the company's values, my previous experience and education, and my strengths and weaknesses.
Graduate, Adelaide
Very basic questions, more just a conversation which was great
Graduate, Melbourne
Typical motivational, behavioural.
Graduate, Melbourne
1. Tell me about yourself and experience 2. Tell me about a time you have worked in a group and your experience in that
Graduate, Melbourne
What does innovation mean to you? Do you prefer learning in breadth or in depth? Why join our company? Many behavioural questions assessing what qualities I have
Graduate, Melbourne
What is my background, my past experience, what I want to be in next 5 years and why do I think they should hire me?
Graduate, Melbourne
Agile, teamwork and technical expertise
Graduate, Sydney
Strengths, weaknesses, interests, hobbies.
Graduate, Melbourne
What is something you have taught yourself.
Graduate, Melbourne
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Be yourself during the assessment centre. Put your best foot forward as soon as you enter the building. During the 'activities' your end product isn't being assessed. You are being assessed on how you interact with your peers, with the assessors, with the person at reception. Lead your team, but encourage them to contribute and listen to them.
Graduate, Sydney
Know about Capgemini, learn about consulting, and figure out what part of Capgemini you want to be a part of.
Graduate, Melbourne
In the Assessment Centre, don't be too cocky and boisterous. It comes across really poorly. But at the same time, do speak up, encourage others. We are looking for people who would be a good colleague, not always the smartest people.
Graduate, Melbourne
Know your own motivations for wanting to work at this company.
Graduate, Melbourne
Be able to apply learning in real world scenarios/experiences
Graduate, Sydney
Be passionate about the company and industry you're applying for - that's the main piece of advice. Other than that I'd say prepare for an interview as you usually do (be ready for individual interview questions) and contribute to the group activities
Graduate, Melbourne
I think my company values very much what individuals can bring to the table, and there's no necessity for us all to be the same. Diversity is celebrated. So I suggest just being yourself, don't pretend to be what you think the company wants. Also think about how your values align with the company's values. If they don't, then you might not enjoy working here. If your values align with the company's then you are a good cultural fit, and that goes a long way. In the assessment centre, you should try your best to be a good team member. This means you have to work collaboratively, suggest ideas, respect your team members, and try to help the team complete their task. This is what you would be expected to do as a team member on a client project.
Graduate, Sydney
They should do their research on the company, don't be too pushy and overbearing, or too disengaged. Assessment centre tests them on the cultural fit, with the company's 7 values
Graduate, Melbourne
In the initial application process and final interview, make sure to take the time to highlight your previous experience and its relevance to the job you are applying for. Research the history of the company including its core 7 values. Work experience is not mandatory but is vital, undertake relevant internships or get a part time job during university.
Midlevel, Adelaide
Be informed. Know the role you are expecting and also speak up.
Graduate, Melbourne
Be friendly and spriteful, full of energy
