    • What have you heard about the other big 4?

      I found this question strange. He did say that he only asked because he doesn't know anything about the others.

    Interview Details

    I applied through university career center. Attended their pre-night where I got to meet my interviewer. The interview was very casual, asking behavioral and situational questions. There was no case. I got invited to second rounds interviews 2 weeks later.
    Second round consisted of pre-night dinner with all other applicants, morning presentations to learn more about KPMG and then 2 30 min back-to-back interviews.

    All the questions were more about fit than anything else. They had a very nice office and everyone was very welcoming and smart.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at KPMG US in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was obtained through a scholarship program guaranteeing two interviews with large accounting firms. KPMG presented for us during the leadership program and it was actually the same presentation as one presented earlier by Deloitte. It made the company look bad and unprepared honestly. The lady who interviewed me was quite strange. One question she asked me was, "Why choose KPMG? Do you prefer us over the other Big Four?" And she drilled me on that.

    Interview Questions
    • Surely you have a top choice for the firm you want to work with? Threw me off because I wasn't prepared to say KPMG.   View Answer
