Audit Intern Interview

Audit Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG International in April 2012.

Interview Details – The office visit is composed of two interviews- one with a partner and one with a senior manager. It is not a normal office visit for internship candidates since it is for summer interns and only few students are considered.The interview with the senior manager was very laid back, no behavioral questions. The one with the partner was a little stressful. He asked about my current accouting internship and why I did not apply BDO( I interned there last summer). I think the BDO question screwed me up since I did not give a convincing answer!

Manager Interview

Manager
Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG International in July 2014.

Interview Details – I was referred by a friend working in the company. The HR responded within the week to inform that I'm shortlisted and called for an interview the following Friday. Before that I'm give a set of 4 online assessment tests to complete. These tests are meant to gauge your personality, work habits, problem solving skills etc.

On the day of interview, I'm first given 35 mins to write a career related essay and complete a technical questionnaire. Then comes the 1:1 interview with the hiring manager. In my opinion, no difficult questions asked.

Interview Question – The technical questionnaire consisted knowledge that I once learnt from my stint in university, of which I left them mostly blank.   Answer Question
