    I had this discussion for an employee engagement role with KPMG India. There were two an interview rounds where my conceptual knowledge , alignment towards engagement role and details about previous org exp was checked. Since both these hiring managers were based out of Bengaluru hence these were telephonic rounds. The third and the final round happened face to face with their Head. She was a very pleasant personality, quite a good listener and asked question s with great clarity and simple language.

    Interview

    Got contacted about two weeks after sending in my resume to set up a phone interview. After two weeks, was scheduled for an in-person interview with two managers, followed by two separate interviews with managers, each a week apart. Last stage will be background checks but if they really like you, they will give you an offer first, conditional upon successful background checks.

    Phone interview first to explain the position in more detail, go over resume, and a few basic behavioral questions. Was then asked to come in for a group interview that lasted about an hour.
