    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at KKR (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Recruited called me about this opportunity. Interview was setup very quickly. However, the feedback process was long wait. The interviewer was professional and presents the company well. The feedback from the interview was positive but I didn't make to the next step. I still don't know the exact reason. The company seems to have a family like culture and seems highly profitable.

    Human Resources Professional Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KKR (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    This is a great company with such prestige that I was taken aback by the interview process. Met with two HR Generalists for 30 minutes each. Each interviewer spent a good 25 minutes talking about the job, company, and themselves, and didn't really bother asking me about my skills, experience, or what I could bring to the company. Was that an interview or was that a sales pitch/therapy session gone wrong? Needless to say, I walked out of there knowing all too well that I was NOT going to return to round two. I mean, how could I have? They didn't have enough information about me to make a fair assessment. Such an odd interview style, especially since it's HR conducting an interview for a HR position.

    Good company, great compensation and benefits, but expect to work long hours.

    Interview

    Went through a staffing agency. They scheduled me for a Wednesday. I was Interviewed for 40 minutes with pretty standard questions. The interviewer was VP and was very nice.

    EA Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at KKR (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The selection process is incredibly thorough and professional. I received a detailed and refreshingly 'plain English' job description, which simply described the role and wasn't cluttered with meaningless power phrases. In two rounds of interviews I met three senior members of the support team, who were very welcoming and went to great lengths to get to know more about me, the experience I'd bring to the role and how my personality would fit the culture of the company. I was asked some very specific and relevant competency questions and, at the same time, my questions were answered honestly and to the point. Overall both interviews felt like a very relaxed and balanced conversation. The first interview included a complex intray-exercise). This exercise was challenging, but I fully appreciate that this is a necessary step for any employer looking for the best talent.
