I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at KKR (New York, NY) in June 2015.
Both interviews started 20-30 minutes late wth me sitting alone in a conference room. Overall very manuscript HR questions to determine if you "adapt" to their boutique culture or not.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at KKR (New York, NY).
Had three rounds of interviews in about two and a half weeks. First round I met with two individuals from HR, second round I met with the three Executives I'd be supporting and third round I met with three Senior Executive Assistants. After the last interview it took about a week to get an offer.
Interview q's were pretty standard - nothing too off the wall.
Recruiter took care of this for me - KKR offered me the salary I requested plus some (benefits, lunch allowance, promise of bonus, etc).

I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at KKR (New York, NY) in July 2014.
One day and I interviewed with with both the head of administrative recruiting and the assistant to the head of administrative recruiting. Both women were pleasant, enthusiastic and upbeat during the interviewing process. I received an offer to start on the very next day and began working the day I started.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at KKR in May 2014.
Testing, background checks, reference checks, transcript verification, employment verification, and urine sample. Its like customs with a cavity search. For nothing bc ppl leave quickly anyway. People come and go quickly because they dont appreciate good people. And they are losing good people faster than you can blink!
The low ball you
