Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

Interview

1. screener with hr team member from South Africa 2. hiring manager phone call 3. phone call with director of department. No opportunity to interview in person.
Everyone I spoke to was fairly unfriendly and not conversational by any means. It was a bit uncomfortable at times as the interviewers seemed unprepared and not interested in learning anything about me outside of what was already on my resume. One hiring manager was yawning quite continuously, another did not have questions ready nor responded to anything I said so there were long pauses. I spent a lot of time preparing for the interview, felt I was on my game and very qualified for the role so it was a disappointing process. Waited about a month to hear back and was only given feedback that they were not continuing with me once I had reached out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in-person interview where I met with 3 interviewers back-to-back. The entire process still managed to span three months, where I eventually learned that I was the top candidate but that they decided to hire from within. They said if there were two positions, I would have the other....to reach out to the recruiter should I find another position of interest.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    There was a telephone screen and information call before they get back to you. If they like you, they will set up a telephone interview which contains a case. Thy then evaluate and set up a time for you to come into the office and do two in-person interviews, one with a case and another behavioral. They then evaluate and extend offers. Overall, a very pleasing and efficient experience.
