Advisory Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL).

Interview

Recruiter interview followed by personnel interview, both by telephone followed by two in person.
Relatively friendly but intense with a few moments of terror interspersed with relief.
It wasn't the hardest to deal with but was not the easiest either.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    Four phone calls and one in-person at the local office. All experience-based. All interviews were with partners and everyone was wonderful to talk to on the whole. I declined because the process took too long and I got another offer in the interim for a job I had wanted for over a year. KPMG gave a very good offer I was sad to decline. I will say that the recruiter was very flaky and hard to get a hold of. I didn't have problems like that with other firms I interviewed. An entire month could have gotten cut out of the process if the recruiter had been more responsive and I might have chosen them in the end. Timing is everything in recruiting!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG in February 2016.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview. The recruiter was in South Africa and had a local accent. She didn't seem very responsive to my answers and she told me that they will contact me if I advance in the process. They said I should expect at least 2 more interviews before being provided an offer.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Short Hills, NJ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    This process has been amazing. Though it was long a thorough, I feel that both the internal recruiters and the partners I interviewed with had the insight to understand my particular skills and background. It feels so good to be understood for what I can uniquely offer. I can't wait to get started here. With every corner I have turned, I have been more impressed with this company.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions centered around how my experience would help KPMG clients. They wanted a deep understanding of both my technical skills and business/use case perspectives. This is exactly what I would do if I were hiring someone. It pushed me but was a fair and realistic process.   1 Answer

    Very fast. If the key person likes you, you will move through very quickly. The key person is usually a partners right hand, and would recommend hiring. Then you meet the partner.

    Advisory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring/ interview process was pretty typical of a Big 4/ consulting environment; initial phone screening by a recruiter, phone call interviews (mostly behavioral and fit based) with Sr. Manager/ Director. Followed by in-person interview at local KPMG office with Director/ Partner.

    The one thing I will say about the process is that the scheduling was VERY unorganized and the phone calls somewhat disinterested. Prior to scheduling an interview the recruiter/ or assistant would reach out and ask for availability for the following week, after providing it, I got no response. After the week was up I issued a follow up email and was again asked to provide availability for the NEXT week, no apology or justification for delay in response. I would be contacted 24-48 hours prior to the scheduled interview via email confirmation, no phone call/ or email to confirm my availability.

    Finally, after going through this disorganized practice and poor applicant experience (5 weeks in), I simply informed them I had accepted another offer and declined the final interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed about 8 times over several months, it was a drawn out process with few updates in between interviews. There is not much flexibility in the negotiation process. Is is standard vacation and benefits based on the level you are hired at. Stay on top of your recruiters they will go a long time before contacting you with updates.
