Q.2 You are assigned some analysis work by your manger which requires you to collect information and data from various people. You have had lots of problems collecting data and hence this has effected the quality of the work you could have done. Your manager is aware of the issues that you have faced and is happy with the work you have produced given the difficulties.
Your manager and yourself are presenting the work you have done to the client who is not very happy with the work. He is picking out point in the analysis that he feels are not up to standard. You feel he is missing the bigger picture of the analysis and focusing too much on minor points.

    Online application form - pretty easy and I don't remember there being any open/free word question. Online numerical and verbal tests - really easy - I hadn't picked up a calculator in about 3 years and I apparently landed in the high percentiles on both of the tests. Then invited to first round telephone interview a few days later.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG International.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, finished all the online test, eg. numerical, verbal, situation judgement, and then got a telephone interview, it takes me 1 month. But if the online test could be finished faster, then the whole process would take less time. the telephone interview mostly is about teamwork, my own experiences and situation judgement and also commercial awareness.
