    Interview

    They invited me to dinner. It was a very relaxed and casual environment. Important to stay professional, but it is more of a character and "good fit" evaluation than anything. If you can make the right person like you during that meet and greet, the interview is more of a formality.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at KPMG (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Nice ppl, great location, great benefits. Usually they will have a 3 round interview processes, but this time they skip it and bring me directly to the on site final round. Through the talking, I get the feeling that they really need to work their butt off. And they do not care so much about the CPA or CFA those things, but they focus on more about GPA. Maybe it's just me. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG.in July 2014. There are four stages to apply for this role: 1. Online Application 2. Telephone Interview 3. Panel Interview 4. Panel Interview with Manager you will report in to. The online application is straightforward. Exhibit a keen interest in KPMG, Financial Markets and Sales. The telephone interview tests your interests of the aforementioned topics and see you can hold a conversation over the telephone. They fire questions in an attempt to make you uncomfortable to test your ability to maintain composure. They ask fundamental technical questions here. The Panel interview is with someone form Sales and another from Analytics. They test your technical knowledge here and explore where your strengths/weaknesses lie. They then focus their attention on the answers that you give and drill deeper to identify your expertise on the subject. A sound understanding of financial instruments is an advantage. I made it to the third stage and missed out. A note before hand check how do you stand with aptitude, logical and verbal reasoning tests, there are a lot of products in the market for this. I did use 'the ultimate career interview' app from app store its worthy.

    Interview

    The process was pretty standard. Nothing technical or accounting specific but rather looking to see if it would be a fit in their culture.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at KPMG (South Bend, IN) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I was invited for an on campus interview. Some of the questions were very specific even though it was supposed to be behavioral. Interviewer seemed a little bit full of himself even and was not impressed by work experience as it was somewhat unconventional. However, the recruiter that landed me the interview after the career fair was very impressed so that inconsistency was quite frustrating.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted by email, then several phone interviews. Finally flew me to NYC for a "Face to Face" interview. Always knew what my status was due to good follow-up with the primary contact at KPMG. Was offered the job after my personal interview and things moved pretty fast to get me on-board.

    Interview Questions

    • I was told during the interview that I would not be responsible for bringing in business but after I started working, it was evident that in order to stay employed or be selected for additional projects, what business you brought in was part of your job!!   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Keep in mind the travel involved and the time away from family. They seem to like to pay high dollar but expect you to stay busy and every hour is "billed" to a client.
