    Der Anruf von HR kam ca. 10 Tage nach dem Absenden der Bewerbungsunterlagen. Die Dame von HR hat zu einem persönlichen Interview mit der Fachabteilung eingeladen.

    Risk Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mumbai (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Mumbai (India)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The manager went through my CV, and asked general questions but looking at some credentials, including my home address, he directly told me that the company would not be able to handle me. He told me, you live on Bhulabhai Desai Road? That's interesting. He turned out to be right in judging me to be an internationally-minded, well-traveled person who wouldn't enjoy the mundane, monotonous work that junior level consultants unfortunately had to do. I quit the job in 15 days, and felt really bad for every single person working there. Some of the work doesn't even require a brain- they were just tracking the hours and charging huge clients like Kotak bank for the amount of time they "consulted" them.

    Director of Strategic Partnerships Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly simple interview process that lead nowhere. After the interview with a hiring manager got a VERY POSITIVE feedback. However, after multiple follow ups - no response at all. Has been 8 weeks, and I hear that this is normal for how KPMG hires. Well, too bad - I am off the market now, with speed like this they will be missing on a lot of talent.
