Associate Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
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.

    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.

    Interview

    Zuerst gab es ein Kennenlernen beider Seiten. Anschließend wurden Fragen zum Lebenslauf gestellt. Man musste Begründungen geben für Entscheidungen, die man getroffen hat. Es wurden fragen zur Entscheidung für die ausgeschriebene Stelle gestellt. Warum hat man sich für die KPMG entschieden. Motivation für den Arbeitsbereich. Fachspezifische Fragen. Sehr freundliche Atmosphäre.

    3 rounds of interview (1st round - excel test based on a case study, 2nd round - face to face interview with the team manager, 3rd round - interview with partner) . The entire process took 1 week followed by the negotiation period which did not help much.

    Standard scale for every designation. So negotiation phase was not really productive.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    One round of telephone interview, one final interview. Friendly interviewers in general for both rounds. Basic questions like why you want to apply, why we should choose you, etc. Not many behaviour questions, more trying to get to know you personally. There are some questions where you need to show logical thinking.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at KPMG (Mumbai (India)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    4 rounds. GD. HR round. Technical questions. And partner interview. If you pass the round you go to the next round. The interviewers are very helpful. HR round they discuss personal questions. group discussion is more like a debate. Technical questions are accounting entries and current events. The partner round is like a formality done.
