    Information Risk Management - Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at KPMG (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Really bad experience! Following successful face to face interview, the director/partner wanted to meet me but the HR said they need my current payslip and assured me will give certain % increment rather than offering me a package that is suitable for the position which already had an allocated budget. I told them I can show my offer letter or promotion letter from current employer for verification purpose. They're keen on employing someone with skills but wouldn't offer the right package. Finding out a person current salary and increasing 10 or 15 percent from there is unethical. Never thought a world class audit firm has third class mentality/ mindset. Finally their HR informed that the director/partner said they won't move forward without me giving current payslip. The whole interview process was about my payslip rather than my skill sets, experience and how I can add value to their organization. Lost interest along the way. Even if they offered me the job, I wouldn't accept it!

    Interview Questions

    • Basic interview questions, tell me about yourself, and a lot of explanation on the job description.   Answer Question

    Vacation Trainee/ Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Two weeks after I submitted my application and answered the numeracy test (both online), I received a call from KPMG. They asked me when I was free. After I told the officer about my availability, she scheduled the interview for me, leaving me ample time to prepare myself. When I arrived at the office for the interview, I was greeted by a HR officer. She sat me down in a room and explained the interview process for me. Then I was given 20 minutes to answer an essay test. After that, I was given about 5 minutes break before the hiring manager came to interview me. All the questions were behavioral. I actually spent time learning the company's background, history and values but there were no questions about those things. Both the HR officer and Manager were very nice, friendly and welcoming. I felt like I was just talking with interested listeners and sharing my experiences.

    Interview Questions

    • Essay: What was the major decision that you have made in your life?

      Questions:
      - What have you learned in your extracurricular activities?

      and a few others that I can't recall unfortunately   1 Answer
