    I have been working at KKR as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free lunch, snacks, and coffee all day. A great place to start and learn from the ground up.

    Cons

    Very poor training, Very poor communication from Human Resources, politicking behind closed doors in regards to your position. HIGH TURN OVER RATE. NO FRIENDLY senior Executive Assistants and NOT honest or straight forward with you position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for training Temps!! While they work hard for a permanent position, get offered nothing, and get treated poorly by Human Resources when they can not even work their last day there, they next go on to other financial firms that will pay them what they are worth and offer a permanent position to allow for growth and become an asset to the firm.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at KKR.

    Interview Details

    Went through a staffing agency. They scheduled me for a Wednesday. I was Interviewed for 40 minutes with pretty standard questions. The interviewer was VP and was very nice. She was very difficult to read though as to whether she liked me or not. I left completely unsure of whether they were considering me or not.
