    Audit Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of an on campus interview which was pretty easy since there are many events where students can meet KPMG staff. Then I was required to go on an office visit where two different employees interviewed me. Half of the interview consisted of behavioral questions and the other half was just me talking about myself and my interests.

    I applied 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.

    Interview Details

    The process includes a reception the night before when you have a chance to meet managers and associates. The next day is full of presentation and a panel where you can ask questions. The actual one on one interview is about 15-20 minutes when they ask questions about your resume in more details and some behavioral questions.

    Interview Details

    Got the interview through on campus recruiting. 1 on 1 interview with a partner. He was very dry overall and asked purely all behavioral questions. Then he asked me to elaborate work experiences and activities on my resume. Also, be sure to have a reason why you want to work at KPMG.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    We had an on-campus interview and a lunch the day before the interview. I think they had made up their minds before interviewing anyone because I was told that if you weren't a member of a particular organization (ALPFA) you would not get a second round invitation

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Went through Career Services Online at my university to drop my resume. Was selected for first round interview which lasted about 30 minutes then got invited for second round interview in office. Office visit was laid back and most of the time was spent learning about the firm and networking with the staff. Had two interviews during the office visit and they were similar to the first round interview, extremely laid back for a Big 4. All my interviews involved the interviewer spending most of the time asking me what questions I had. Make sure you are well prepared with questions.

    Interview Questions
    • What questions do you have for me. I was asked this six times in one 30 minute interview. I began to wonder if my earlier questions sucked   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Did not negotiate as this is an intern position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went in for the 2nd round interviews, great networking event the night before interviews where we met with partners and managers. The next morning we viewed a presentation on the benefits, expectations, and opportunities of KPMG and then went in for interviews. There was also a "closed door" panel of senior and 1st year associates to answer questions. The questions were standard and revolved around the content on your resume. They expected detailed, well told stories revolving around the skills needed in the audit industry. They were also conversational, testing your ability to carry a fluid and meaningful discussion.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions for personality based and lead-ins for some type of story.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiations as far as pay for interns, but there is some leeway in determining in what industry you would like to work. They expect you to make a decision between Federal or Commercial before they extend you an offer letter.
