Associate Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at KPMG (Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA).

Interview

In-person interview went great, however, the recruiter brought me in for a position that required experience that I did not have. Prior to the interview, I asked whether or not the lack of experience would be an issue, and I was told it would not. I was supposed to meet with 4 people, and wound up meeting with 1 and another was on the phone. Total waste of time.

    Interview

    An email was sent to confirm the on-campus interview.
    After selecting a date, a notice for pre-interview dinner event came up.
    Many interviewers and greeters did show up but my interviewer did not.
    Next day, an on-campus interview was held.
    The interviewer was a Director. He just went through my resume from top to the bottom and asked very general behavioral interview questions.
    Questions on my major and industry, and added his explanation about the industry as I hesitated a little.
    After a week, an email was sent that I did not make it to the second round.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at KPMG (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    It was a 2 tier process. manager round and partner round. Manager round was good. Partner round experience was awful. He was least interested in taking the interview and seemed like he had made up his mind already not to select. He finished the interview in just 7.50 mins and asked only 2 technical questions. I don't understand what was the point of wasting his and my time if had already pre decided the things ! Candidates should be given a fair chance i believe.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at KPMG (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The HR was a wonderful guy, very warm & polite.
    I gave two technical rounds both of which I cleared quite well. However, they took an additional technical round & I found the interviewer to be judgemental for no apparent reason & a bit shallow.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    only one round of interview. Took almost 15 days to final the result. Got selected but the Reporting manager was not that great. Left after 3 days. Even after submitting my resignation, I tried to get back. But the reporting manager was so angry over me leaving the organisation that he didn't allow me take back my resignation. It was difficult to get in the company. But it was even more difficult to get out of the company. It took me 3 weeks to completely get the resignation process completed.

Both were very pleasant and informal.
