Audit Intern Interview

Audit Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at KPMG US.

Interview Details – Really positive experience to be able to go through. They take all of the potential candidates out to a dinner the night before the interview and you get a chance to meet your interviewer in a much more relaxed setting. The interview itself was not very difficult, it was basically just a conversation about myself.

Interview Question – Whats the most rewarding experience you have had through volunteer work or through your professional career thus far?   Answer Question

Audit Intern

Interviewed at KPMG US

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.

Interview Question – What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and 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

Interview Question – everything was behavioral and just relax conversations   Answer Question

Interview Question – No unxpected question, the interviewer asked to expand something in your resume with more details   Answer Question

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

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.

Interview Question – Standard behavioral interview. Nothing unexpected   Answer Question

Audit Intern Interview

Audit Intern
Washington, DC

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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.
