Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in September 2010.

Interview Details – Got a call 2 weeks after my on-line application. Was asked to attempt the aptitude test, which consists of logical reasoning and math. All MCs. Suggest to wear business suits, although there was couple of people showing up in casual wear and jeans, which I think is pretty bizare. Also suggest to time your work.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2007.

Interview Details – 1:1 interview with partner and another Assistant Manager which took half a day in total (for a position in the Commercial Due Diligence Practice). First, the different career stages and educational background mentioned in the resume were part of the discussion. The rationale was to learn more about me and my motivation to shift to KPMG and relocate to another country in my case. After that was a larger Due Diligence case where I was given three huge folders with material on the case (company to be sold, market environment, product information and market interview transcripts). I had about one hour to scan through the material. After that, an initial interview with the client was staged so that the partner could see how I interact with clients and what questions I would ask. After that I was given another 90mins to develop my thoughts on what the market perspectives were and how the to-be-sold company was positioned in the market and if it was recommendable for an interested party to acquire the firm. The final presentation I had to give took about 30mins where the partner and the Assistant Manger asked questions about the company's product, the market place and how I would analyze and judge the future performance of the firm (i.e. questions on revenues, projecting revenues, market shares, 5-Forces).
