    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I have been in the KPMG process since last 8 weeks. Not sure if this is all real or a set up. The recruiter called and spoke for 5 minutes and said he will get back to me. For 2 weeks no response and then set up a interview date. I met the Partner, Director and Manager. Went through 2-3 hours of interview. All went well. No response. A week later the recruiter calls and lets me know I was short listed for another 5 rounds of interview with 3 managers and 2 directors. I go through 5 rounds. All went well. It's been few days, no response.

    It is a shame how KPMG's hiring process works. They talk about being professionals. I think it is more about acting smart than being smart. I read on some blogs that this interviews are not real. They hire cheap H1-B people in other countries and then justify that they were not able to find anybody local of same talent.

    Also KPMG prefers to hire people in 20's. I learnt through the interview process, they don't want people with more experience as they won't blend well with the existing staff.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with Senor Manager and Senior Partner. Interview with Manager went very well with straight forward questions. However the Partner interview was difficult and was asked questions not related to the position. I prepared for weeks learning the technical stuff but never was asked a technical question by the Partner. Partner Interview was different from any other interview I've done.
