    Tax Senior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through headhunter. Friendly people to speak with. Did not ask all the behavioural questions I was expecting. They basically want to know why I'm interested in Germany and the type of US tax area I have exposed to. Thought it was a down position for me, but turned out they received an application from a local while the partner was away for vacation. Language is important so I guess it's fair enough they made that decision.

    Strategy Group Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 2 onsite interviews on the same day with 1 team member each. In general, the interviewers were quite nice. First, each interviewer went through my CV and asked me questions about myself and my experience. Then I had to prepare a bigger case and other smaller cases. At the end, I didn't get an offer because "I needed to gain more experience". Ironically I was applying for an internship to get this experience. Therefore, the reason didn't make much sense to me.
