    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at KPMG International (India, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    DISORGANIZED..NO COMMUNICATION....BALLS DROP.....CANDIDATES GET LEFT IN THE DARK...Someone emailed me to schedule an interview with someone in a foreign country which is an incredible waste of resources for administrative jobs in the states..you mean to tell me someone else local can't do this? They never confirmed the interview..I was brushed off after I took time to reply and schedule to then get called early in the morning at the time they proposed via email with no warning or confirmation for a phone screen in which case I was asked my salary requirements and a few other questions to then be sent a million forms to complete..never heard back. Had I knows the salary was off kilter I would have not wasted all of my time filling out these forms...to not follow-up with candidates is unprofessional....much less the woman said it would take 2 weeks to hear back. A joke.
