I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG in April 2014.

Interview Details – Had one phone interview and then two in person interviews. Most of the questions were job related. Didn't have too many standard "interview" questions. Had to submit a online application and once I did the proces was able to continue. Received offer letter a week after my last interview.

Interview Question – There wasn't too many difficult questions that threw me off.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Didnt have to negotiate. Offer was want I wanted.

Interview was mostly behavioral based. I ended up asking more questions about themselves the firm and the job than they actually asked me.

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at KPMG in September 2013.

Interview Details – Got an interview on campus through my university. Met the people the night before at a reception - all so nice and easy to talk to. I got to meet my interviewer which calmed my nerves a bit. The interview was informal and easy-going - typical behavioral questions. 2nd interview was at the office. Got to stay in a gorgeous hotel the night before and have a fancy reception/dinner. We learned a lot about KPMG, and were given plenty of time and resources to have our questions answered. The interviews were more formal, but similar behavioral-style questions. Recruiters were so accommodating!

Interview Question – Nothing technical or case - all behavioral.   Answer Question
