    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Long process, have not finished yet. They do not follow up, you need to write them and see what is happening. They hire people only if there are projects available.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Went through campus recruiting. Had on campus interview with a partner for 45 mins. It was all behavioral questions. A week later I was invited to their office visit, which happened about one and half months later. We all stayed at a nice hotel and had dinner in small groups the night before. Office visit was very relaxing. There were 3 interviews but they were all very informal. At the last interview I was extended an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in-person interview where I met with 3 interviewers back-to-back. The entire process still managed to span three months, where I eventually learned that I was the top candidate but that they decided to hire from within. They said if there were two positions, I would have the other....to reach out to the recruiter should I find another position of interest.

    Audit Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (San Antonio, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The overall interview process was good. I applied through campus recruiting and was selected for an interview. On the night before the interview, KPMG treated all of the interviewees to dinner. The first interview was a relaxing conversation. The following day, I received a call back that I was granted an office visit. During the office visit process, KPMG pays for you to stay in a hotel and hosts a networking dinner the night before. The office visit had two 30 minute interviews with a manager and a senior manager. There was also a panel to answer questions with 3 KPMG professionals. The senior manager called me a few hours later and offered me the position.

    Risk Consulting IT Attestation Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Brunswick, NJ

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (New Brunswick, NJ).

    Interview

    We have a pre-interview perception and I met with the one who will be my interviewer, a department director. And next morning I have the interview. We mainly talked about the work and activity I have done and the skills I learnt. He didn't ask any hard question, even strength or weakness. So I think I told nothing outstanding to him, which should be the reason I failed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    The interview was held in the career services office at my university. Before the interview, I made small talk with the campus recruiter. Then, I had a 30 minute interview with the diversity recruiter. She was very friendly and easy to talk to, much like many people at KPMG. The interview was primarily behavioral and was more like a conversation.
