    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kroll (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    One of the best interview experiences I have had. A real challenge and friendly HR contacts. They gave you 45 minutes to conduct a background investigation on an individual they identified. Seriously unique.

    Junior Editor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kroll in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and was contacted two months later (!) and asked to take an editing test, which was emailed to me. Was given a one-hour time limit for the test, which was a multi-page report. The actual task was to rewrite the entire report. There were tons of typos to fix on top of rewriting. I don't know how even a longtime editor could do a good job on that test, given the time allotted to complete it. Beware: this is not a junior editor position, it's a writing position.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kroll (Reston, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process for Kroll was a two part process. I had to complete a 2-part assessment/case study in 90 minutes. A few minutes later once I passed this assessment I was called in for a in-person interview. This portion lasted around 2 hours and I was interview by 5 different individual. Was given a case study to solve during the interview.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    There were three separate interviews back-to-back with the first being with the HR person, the second with three managers, and the third with the managing director of the branch. Overall, the interviews weren't too bad. I found out that I was lucky and had the three nicest managers who interviewed me.

    Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kroll (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Several phone conversations before an actual in-person. Rounds of different managers and HR coming in for 5 hr interview. Grilled about a lot of the same things be different people. Wondered if it would not of been better to have all 5 or 6 people in at the same time asking questions. I don't usually advocate putting a person on the spot in a tribunal situation, but here it may of worked.

    Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kroll.

    Interview

    Initial HR screening by phone went very well. They ask good questions, not the useless standard questions. Second interview was by phone again, with two interviewers on speaker phone. I felt it went well regardless, but I did not make it to a 3rd interview. HR did comunicate promptly and professionally throughout the process though. They did not respond to my request for further feedback.

    Interview

    Fairly routine interview questions about work experience, behavior, and future goals. A demonstrated interest / understanding of due diligence and the compliance industry will be helpful. Examples of ability to multitask and manage rigid deadlines is also good.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kroll (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process started with a phone call (the day after I applied, actually). I went in for two rounds of in-person, including a 4-hour session with multiple team members. It was a pretty friendly process and definitely gave me a good picture of how the marketing department worked. I was disappointed to not get an offer. I was also a bit disappointed to not get a clear rejection – after that much time invested, it would have been appreciated to hear back one way or another.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kroll (Reston, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Great communication and friendly staff. HR was extremely helpful with setting up the interview and informing me of the process. Assessment processes included language testings and then a panel interview. Kroll ended up not having the funding for the position, but overall it was very positive.
