I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at KPMG in September 2011.

Interview Details – 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
