    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interviewer was really friendly and supportive. He gave common behavioral questions, mostly like a background check. Very common big four interviews. But I would say, a couple things to pay attention: 1. if you switch from sth else to auditing, explain it even the interviewer did not ask 2. be prepared for some simple technical questions like depreciation, sales of goods, adjustment entry 3. emphasis on team work

    Auditor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KPMG (Moscow (Russia)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Lots of contact by telephone and email. After passing the initial screening, completed online exams. Afterwards was invited for an interview, first with HR, afterwards was invited for a second interview with the managers and partners. Overall impression of the company was very nice, all of the managers I spoke with were very friendly and had lots of positive things to say about the company. The interview with the partner wasn't nearly as pleasant and eventually I was glad I didn't get an offer because I don't think I would have accepted it—lots of overtime for a very low salary. However, it was a good experience and the company has lots of friendly faces that would make working here pleasant.
