    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was a phone screening interview, and the worst thing is when i email the recruiter asking about my application status, no one replies. I mean at least a company should let the candidate know whether he or she gets the job.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    I was interviewed for a data scientist position. First round with hr and second round phone screening were ok. The onsite was a disaster. One interviewer was playing her cell phone throughout my 30min presentation; another was blinking his eye all the time. They did not seem to know a lot about machine learning. The questions they asked were simply copied from the internet, and I doubt that they know the right answers. The case studies were weird and stupid, and were absolutely not at the same level as cases that may be asked by other top consulting companies. I did not get an offer, but I would not accept it if I did.
