I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at KPMG International.
I went through three Phone interviews with very basic questions relating to accounting standards and financial statements. If you paid attention in school and you have a pulse you will be 100% fine.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at KPMG International (San Diego, CA) in April 2015.
Just a phone interview, the partner of tax had called me, was a pretty chilled out interview. Relevance of the phone call was only 5 mins, rest of the time we spoke about the flawed education system

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at KPMG International.
It took a month. They ask you very general questions about school, why you would be good for KPMG. They're all very nice. The interviews are mainly done by HR.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at KPMG International (India, TX) in January 2015.
DISORGANIZED..NO COMMUNICATION....BALLS DROP.....CANDIDATES GET LEFT IN THE DARK...Someone emailed me to schedule an interview with someone in a foreign country which is an incredible waste of resources for administrative jobs in the states..you mean to tell me someone else local can't do this? They never confirmed the interview..I was brushed off after I took time to reply and schedule to then get called early in the morning at the time they proposed via email with no warning or confirmation for a phone screen in which case I was asked my salary requirements and a few other questions to then be sent a million forms to complete..never heard back. Had I knows the salary was off kilter I would have not wasted all of my time filling out these forms...to not follow-up with candidates is unprofessional....much less the woman said it would take 2 weeks to hear back. A joke.

GD followed by an interview. Basic Questions about team management skills, questions about estimation. Eg: Number of ties being worn at that moment in the entire world. They focus a lot on extra-curricular activities. Be prepared for a quick summary of what you've done other than in class.
