    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at KKR (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KKR (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    Recruiter took care of this for me - KKR offered me the salary I requested plus some (benefits, lunch allowance, promise of bonus, etc).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at KKR in May 2014.

    Interview

    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!
