Credit Risk Associate Interview

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

Interview

Applied through campus recruiting. Attended over 5 different information sessions, handed over CV in all of them and had relevant work experience. Invited for on campus interview which I aced. Even though the HR communicated its going to be a 30 min behavioral interview, it turned out to be completely technical. Heard in a week that three weeks from then, there will be a office visit along with a couple of final round behavioral interviews. Prepared day and night and even cancelled a super-day invitation with another firm clashing with this interview only to hear back a day before the interview that the KPMG has changed its policies and thus cannot consider any international candidates. I think this is easily the worst interview experience I have ever had and I am glad I am not going to this unprofessional firm. I'd like to make following points to the company:

1. If you change your company policies abruptly like that and then claim there were some regulatory changes, please don't visit good schools like GATECH and don't call yourself a part of Big4. I also read Wall Street Journal and haven't come across any such news. None of the other consulting firms have cut down on their hiring, it is certainly an internal issue with your firm.

2. Please tell HR whether the interview is going to be technical or behavioural (if at all you are going to take the interview after scheduling one). This is the very basic principle which even smallest of the startups follow in the sense they atleast tell their candidates what kind of interview awaits them.

3. Please organize less no. of random events on campus. Students have more things to do in life than just listen to same old blabbering everytime. I know one has the option to not go, but you won't select a candidate in the next round if he/she doesn't make it to all of your events. And if both you and the candidate take out so much time, effort and money then atleast frame your internal policies beforehand.

4. In nutshell, please don't be a moron.

I'm never ever going to apply to this firm again

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (McLean, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    First round on campus. with no behavioral questions or resume questions. most of time was discussing about mortgage banking industry. The super day is in McLean office. Interviewed by a manager and a director. The manager asked dozens of tech questions and the director focused on behavioral questions, such as strength, past leadership experiences.

    • I didn't expected tech questions, but it wasn't that hard. As long as you do your research, it would be fine.   Answer Question
