    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very easy they are not trying to ask technical questions. They want to get a feel for who you are and see if you are a good fit for their firm. They also "Wine & Dine" all of the interviewers, which is a nice change of pace from the other Big Four.

    Interview Details

    It was a very relaxed interview over all. The company its self is very intimidating but interview when great in my opinion. They try to recruit the very best people in the industry so you should be prepared for very heavy compaction. You want to prepare for the interview. It is generally pretty standard questions and there are also a few curve balls throghn in there

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed on campus. KPMG did a great job of making kids calm and allowing them to be themselves. In the waiting room there were recent hires from KPMG talking to students about how they like KPMG so far. My interview was very conversational. My interviewer asked me one question the entire time. The rest of the interview was me walking through my resume. Really thought I would get a second interview because I thought it was a very positive experience.

    IT Advisory - Associate Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Attended a happy hour meeting before then, asked around a lot. Met a few partners, everyone seemed friendly enough though no one could explain what IT attestation was, which was the specific role I applied for. During the interview I ended up flat out asking the interviewer what it was and based on his reaction, thought I would not make it past the first round. Surprisingly, I did.

    IT Attestation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    First round consisted of a pre-interview event followed by the corresponding interview the next day. The event was held at a local bowling alley and it was a great opportunity to mingle with the recruiters, fellow interviewees, and your interviewer. The in person interview was held on campus and lasted 20 minutes. Like most public accounting interviews it incredibly conversational. The gentleman that I spoke with went into great detail on the role and the steps he took to realize such. I probably asked him twice as many questons as he asked me.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school's job platform. received an email that I had been selected for the first round of interviews on-campus. Attended the pre-night which was very casual and relaxed. The next morning was an interview with a Senior Manager, which was mostly behavioral questions. The interview was very laid back, and we were able to wrap things up with a conversation we both seemed to enjoy. I was then invited to the "inside look" program. The night before was a dinner with all of the managers, directors, and partners. It was a great experience, everyone was very conversational. The next morning we each had three interviews with different members of management. Again, mostly behavioral. The partner didn't even ask any questions, we just had a conversation about KPMG, the practice, and clients the office provides services to.

    IT Attestation Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The partners are doing the interview, the whole process was pretty casual and enjoyable, nothing really technical was asked, and professional experience was brushed through a little bit. I guess fitness of background and professional experience matters a lot too, but for some reason I failed to mention it heavily during the interview.

    IT Attestation Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Applied via my college career site and was invited to interview. Round 1 was extremely casual, basically just a run down of my resume and a challenge I faced in each experience on my resume. I was invited for round two in NYC and it was two back to back interviews which were about 30 minutes. All behavioral questions which were easy but unfortunately my resume was extremely geared toward finance rather than information systems which is more what they were looking for.

    IT Forensic Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Apply the position through university's career center. Social night before on-campus interview, 30 min on-campus interview for the first round, 1 day on-site interview for the final round. Most interviews are based on behavioral questions. (Why interested in forensic industry, related school projects and/or work experiences, etc) During the on-site interview, they will give you a great accommodation near their company in downtown, Houston, a company tour with the department representatives, 2-3 final interviews with supervisors and/or managers, and social lunch with the department representatives. Most interviews will be held on Friday and the whole on-site interview process takes a day. Most questions were not that hard to answer, but I think they are looking for someone who has a deep understanding of forensic industry, customer services and a lot of work experiences.
