    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very lengthy. It look about 4 months to actually get an offer letter from the company. Communication wasn't very good either. The interview process itself wasn't too bad. Had 5 phone interviews and 1 onsite with 3 people. I had to travel from NY to their Chicago office and they only paid for the flight.

    Interview Questions

    • none really - they asked about the aspects of SAP GRC. if you know that for this position it should be fine   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    My company matched the offer and it took a lot of time to actually get the offer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Copenhagen (Denmark)).

    Interview

    Hiring manager, online tests, HR interview. Traditional questions. No "creative" questions. Interview was overall pleasant and two-way. The process was also fast from when I submitted an application. No presentation requested. Interview was focused on describing on how you would handle/approach situations or issues. As many clients are in the public sector, it is required that you speak Danish professionally - seems the company would offer support for this.

    Interview

    Initial communications was great, but after first round had no communication from HR, After two months got a call from HR that i was not selected. it was only after i contacted the business people. Even the first interview was like a checklist being confirmed, Will suggest to anyone who is applying not to speak with business people as this offends HR off for some reason.
