    Interview Details

    Final partner interview. I had to give a presentation and then an interview to a partner in the Risk and Regulation Advisory department. Partner seemed very disinterested with my presentation and did not ask me a single question. Throughout the presentation and interview he looked very bored and kept glancing at his phone. Not very friendly

    Please disregard this reviews as I was required to post something in order to view the salaries of similar positions within KPMG. I have nothing more to say at the moment since I have not yet heard back regarding my application status.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG International in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Although not the same in every college career center, the process for started through the university. KPMG recruits at my school and we had the opportunity to have an interview. The process began with the submission of a current resume and our degree audit. The interview selection was based solely on grades (3.3 or higher). In the first round of interviews, general questions were asked like "What are you strengths?", "What do you look for in an employer?", "Do you prefer to work in a team or independently?", etc. Very general, nothing specific. Once the interview was over (and this may not be the same across the board), but you were notified days later if you were selected for second round interviews in the home office (Hartford, CT in my case). In the office you met with another employee, generally a senior manager or partner of the firm. These set of questions were more specific to your future with the firm like "Why did you choose KPMG?", "What's your plan for the 150 credits?" but this could vary amongst interviewers.

    Audit Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at KPMG International.

    Interview Details

    The application started with an online form to fill out, asking for grades, why you've chosen to be a CA, other biographical information and attaching your CV.

    After that, I was invited to a group assessment where we had to complete a task as a group, with many different challenges.

    Next step was a one on one interview with a human resources officer. Assessing my CV and asking general questions about my character.

    Within two weeks after that, I was offered a post in Cape Town for 2019.
