    Associate - FRM Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moscow (Russia)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Moscow (Russia)).

    Interview

    Went through the hiring process at KPMG quite recently. Had 3 rounds: 1 HR interview, 2 1:1 interviews with managers and 1 interview with partner. Very nice people, all interviews were competence based. Everything was very nice and efficient. Feedback after each round was quite prompt.

    My advice: discuss with your HR what your salary expectation is and if it is within the salary range of the position you are applying for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Moscow (Russia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The overall process was extremely long. One of the last stages was a group case exercise. We were divided into groups of two and given 4 hours to solve the case in the Moscow City office. Nevertheless, no one controlled or watched us, so the final assessment was based only on the 5 minute presentation divided between two group members.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moscow (Russia)

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Moscow (Russia)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I would like to share my experience of going through KPMG application process. I applied to the roles 1,5 month ago, after that I had to contact myself and ask for an update regarding my application.
    I have applied for 2 vacancies (Fixed Assets Valuation and Corporate Finance). Today, at 7 pm one of HR person contacted me regarding my application. However, I had to choose between two vacancies and the colleague explained it very briefly and forced me to choose one straight away without providing me time to think about my career within this role. I think it is very crucial to have a bit of time as it could be my life choice. Alright, I choose Corporate Finance, theoretical questions was asked straight away. I would like to mention that it was almost 7 pm, I had very emotional and tough day and I couldn't answer the question properly. May be I am wrong but I think it makes company look more professional when telephone interview properly scheduled and candidates are aware what to expect from a phone call. Therefore, I feel that I wasn't assessed properly and didn't have a chance to show my best result. I also would like to mention that whole phone call (process) was rushed.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Moscow (Russia)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    First step was home task - case study. They were given 48 hours to finish it. It wasn't difficult. Second step - standard HR interview. Third step - case interview with Manager. It was conducted via Skype. It was the most awful experience I had so far. Their internet was so bad that we lost connection every other minute. I had to ask several times for information and repeated myself because I wasn't sure that interviewer did hear me well. I got a feedback from them in 1 month! Its ridiculous.
