    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at KPMG (Paris (France)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    1/ Test d'anglais de 30 min (BRIGHT) - Score minimum à obtenir: 3 / 5 et Test de personnalité sur ordinateur de 10 min
    2/ Entretien de motivation avec un consultant senior - entretien classique de motivation qui retrace le parcours du candidat + cas de 15min sur un sujet de rentabilité
    3/ Entretien avec un senior manager d'origine étrangère avec une étude de cas de 30min. Le cas a été énoncé de manière peu claire et dans un Français parfois approximatif. Début de l'énoncé du cas mot pour mot: "aider un client qui veut entrer dans le train à grande vitesse en Italie". Pour ma part, le cas a été formulé de manière peu clair et peu structuré.

    Malgré cela, mon expérience a été globalement positive avec des consultants très sympathiques et des échanges intéressants.
