Please describe the interview / hiring process.

A recruiter contacted me to let me know that KKR was looking for a sales associate in their Partners and Clients group (in San Francisco). She passed on my resume to KKR and set up an initial introduction email to KKR's team. The next week I went out to their office (the most gorgeous office I've ever seen, by the way) and meet with the principal and her associate. They asked me the run-of-the-mill questions that you can see below and I truly believed that the interview went really well. They said they were trying to fill the position as quickly as possible. After the interview, I didn't hear back from the for nearly three weeks. I actually never heard back from them, despite following up immediately after the interview and checking in once or twice to see if there was an update. I was told to go through the recruiter for questions, who wasn't helpful. After a few weeks, the recruiter let me know that they choose someone with more experience. I was a little annoyed about the lack of communication, but in the end it was taken out of my control. Overall a decent interview experience, just wished for a little more communication from KKR.
