    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I had a wonderful experience recruiting with KPMG. Wonderful people and great events. Took the time to get to know me unlike the other big four firms. First I had on campus interview, which we had a pre-interview dinner. I made it to the next round which is the office visit. In between the first interview and office visit there were several events, as well as individual events with a KPMG professional.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was an on campus interview. That week they called to tell me that they wanted me to go to their office. I interacted with the staff through social events and everyone was really nice. On the day of the office visit I had two "interviews" which were more of casual conversation with the managers. Afterwards, there was a panel where you could ask them questions, and then they treat me to lunch.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school website,was offered an interview at the school, and then was offered a 2nd interview at their office. The first interview was mostly a conversation about my background. 2nd interview consisted of an interview with a manager and an interview with a partner. It definitely helps to try and meet people from the company before the interview process, go talk to them at career fairs and other events on campus.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very social and laid back. Had to first send in my resume and be accepted for the interview process. The people are a little edgy but they are overall pretty sincere.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met recruiters at career fair and applied online at KPMG's site. Received an on-campus interview and was invited to a pre-interview dinner the night before. Met very outgoing, personable KPMG professionals. On-campus interview was for 30 minutes with a partner of the Dallas office. Felt more like a conversation and less like an interview. Head back within a week or so with an offer to visit the office. Between the interview and the office visit, there were several social outings with the company where I met more professionals from the Dallas office and some current interns.

    Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    After preliminary certification through my school's career office, I was able to submit my resume, references, and an unofficial copy of my transcript through KMPG's website. Probably due to my G.P.A. alone [3.7+ at that time], I landed a first round interview.

    Interview Questions
    • As my interview stayed avoided unduly technical questions, there weren't any questions that we difficult, per se; however, he did ask me one question so odd that it caught me off guard: "From your work experience, what's the greatest compliment you've received?" Though I froze up at the time, in retrospect, I probably could have salvaged the moment by responding with a comment or phrase from my previous employer's letter of recommendation.   Answer Question
