Senior Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at KPMG (Atlanta, GA) in April 2009.

Interview

The process included a series of group interviews with current staff (not HR folks) and if you made the cut from group to group, you were then presented with a specific "case: (as a form of behavioral interview) where a smaller group offered up a potential client situation and what you would do to serve that particular client. The final interview was with the Partner I would report to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG in April 2011.

    Interview

    All day interview in Manhattan with numerous Managers and departments. There was a lot of waiting time inbetween different departments and managers as they were interviewing a large group of people. I was a little older than most of the other candidates and dressed better so the security people assumed I was a partner from out of town and they escorted me separately from the interview group.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard stuff - everyone asked "Tell me about yourself." They asked about hobbies and interests, life style, etc. What are my weaknesses and strong points, etc. There were some technical questions about HIPAA.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of three interviews. One initial meeting with an MD, then a phone screen by an SM and followed by an interview with a partner. All involved were very personable and professional. The HR representative responsible for executing the process and negotiating the salary was a little different and in one case blatantly dishonest. However, after several conversations and a call with the MD, everything worked out.

    • There wasnt anything really unexpected or difficult involved.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was on the fence the entire time and although I really liked the people I spoke with, the dishonesty from the HR rep was a bad sign.

    Interview

    The interview process itself is rather unstructured comparing with other industry competitors. The interview questions also lacked structure and it was unclear what they are after.
