Interview was set up through government agency that helps minorities get internships. Ended up getting to the interview late but called in before to let them know that I was going to be late. They were very understanding. Allowed me to meet the team after the interview.

    Interview Details

    On-Campus recruiting, phone interview, office visit. Everybody is super nice, friendly and helpful. Communication was great and fast from the beginning. They put a lot of effort and planning into their office visits and you don't feel like just another candidate. It feels like everybody in the company is involved in recruiting and you meet tons of professional from Associate to Partner throughout the recruiting process.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty easy. Had a coffee initially with someone from the office then a couple days later had two behavioral interviews back to back with two higher-ups from the office I was going to be working in. They vet you as a candidate beforehand so these interviews seemed to simply be a way to get to know you and your personality.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I went for an Interview at KPMG through my school's career website. I sent in my resume and cover letter, and a couple weeks later, I got a reply for an interview on my campus. The day before the interview, I was invited to a KPMG social gathering for all the students applying to meet some KPMG employees. The environment was super laid back and very comfortable. I was able to meet a lot of the employees and current interns that gave a lot of great advice and information about the company.
    The next day, I went in for the interview. The interviewer was a manager working at KPMG, not an experienced recruiter. The interview was very laid back, just like the social from the previous night. Rather than a question and answer session, it was more of a conversation and a time to get to know each other. There were many times where we were laughing and talking about his current clients.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college. I met some staff at the reception, and they were extremely friendly. The on-campus interview was behavioral, nothing too hard or challenging. At the second round interview, I had the chance to meet the partner, who had a good sense of humor, and all other staff. The interviews were even more relaxing. They just wanted to know about me, my personality, and my work ethic. After the office visit, I felt like it's a place that I would love to go to work every day.

    Interview Details

    Applied on campus, sent resume, cover letter, transcript. Got asked for a first interview, very relaxing! The interviewer only asked a few questions and we just talked. Interview was about 50 minutes, but didn't seem like it! Got asked back for 2nd interview next week! This is a great company and I hope I get to intern here. Everyone I've met has been so down to earth and easy to talk to.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruited through career fair. First round interview was on campus. They take you out to dinner the night before the interview and you get to meet some of their professionals. The interview was easy. I met with a senior manager and just asked questions for 30 minutes. I heard back about round 2 a couple days later. Round 2 was on site. They book a room at a nice hotel and take the interviewing group out to dinner the night before. At the office, you get a buddy who shows you around, answers questions, and takes you to two interviews with a manager or senior manager. Same interview process as the first round. I met with 2 easy going managers and asked questions the entire time. The day ended after your buddy takes you to lunch. Since they were still bringing in people from other campuses, I didn't hear back until 3 weeks later. The senior manager I interviewed with called me and gave me a verbal offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first put my resume through the company's online application system and was granted an interview with a conference. The interview at the conference was conversational, and not as difficult as I thought. The majority of the questions dealt with my leadership and teamwork skills. Afer this first interview I waited for 3 months before I heard anything back.

    However, I was given a second interview at the actual office I preferred to work in. There were actually three conservative interviews during this process. All of the interviewers wanted to know my plans for my license, the extra thirty hours, and if I could see myself in the area for an extended period of time. The interviewers were very down to earth and easy to have a conversation with.

    After my last set of interviews, I heard back 2 weeks later that they wanted to offer me a position.

    I got in contact with a recruiter. I go to a smaller school that they don't directly recruit from, but was able to get a phone interview after keeping in touch with the recruiter. The interview went well, and got an office interview. I got a tour of the office and then had an interview with a manager in non FSO, went to lunch with two associates, and then finished up with an interview with a manager in FSO.
