Accenture Interview Question and Answer

Question: Describe a time when you were given instructions that were either vague or unclear, how did you handle it?

Good Answer

  • Situation: Whilst I was working as a Quality Control Assistant during an internship at a local manufacturer, my superior tasked me with carrying out a full inspection of the latest batch on my own. 
  • Task: As I had just started, this task was unclear to me at this time as I did not understand the inspection procedure and the key areas to look out for. 
  • Action: I first requested an updated checklist from my supervisor for these items to use for my inspection. Once provided, I then immediately went to work, ensuring to inspect each product carefully before checking each box. I also aimed to find further potential errors beyond the checklist in a safe manner to ensure quality was at its best for all stages of production.  
  • Result: Once I completed my inspection quickly, I found a few faults and reported these to my superior. My superior was impressed when she saw the thoroughness of my review and complimented me on the timely delivery. She also gave a few pointers that I could use to further improve my efficiency in my inspections. 
  • Reflect: I found that asking for further guidance and materials to assist with my work is useful for gaining further understanding of processes to ensure high quality. I also found it useful to gain feedback from my supervisor and co-workers that I can use to further improve my performance and experience.
