    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    After preliminary certification through my school's career office, I was able to submit my resume, references, and an unofficial copy of my transcript through KMPG's website. Probably due to my G.P.A. alone [3.7+ at that time], I landed a first round interview.

    Interview Questions

    • As my interview stayed avoided unduly technical questions, there weren't any questions that we difficult, per se; however, he did ask me one question so odd that it caught me off guard: "From your work experience, what's the greatest compliment you've received?" Though I froze up at the time, in retrospect, I probably could have salvaged the moment by responding with a comment or phrase from my previous employer's letter of recommendation.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Submitted a resume and cover letter along with academic transcripts. Interviews took place on campus and were very much about getting to know you, your goals, and why you want to be a CA/CPA. Make sure you know your resume and cover letter inside-out as a lot of questions will be based off them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Beijing, Beijing (China)).

    Interview

    Just 1 problem solving test and 1 English test. You can search for sample questions on the internet and practice them before you attend the written exam. Overall, it's pretty easy after some practice. No face to face interview...and KP accepts 150+ interns every summer, mostly for audit. Only 20 or so are for Tax and Advisory combined.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation at all. We just signed the contract directly...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    KPMG held a couple meet and greets prior to the application deadline. After the deadline they were very quick to offer interviews. At Mount Royal they held an informal meet and greet to MRU interviewees.Very friendly and approachable. Interview was held at the downtown office. Two 30 minute interviews back to back (behavioural with a recruiter and conversational with a partner), followed by a round table event where you were able to ask questions to the different aspects of the business. Afterwards broke into small groups and went out for lunch. Group consisted of 3 interviewees and 2 assosicates. Entire process lasted from 8:40am till 2:30pm. Post interview event was held near the saddledome that evening. The firm is very team orientated so make sure you go to all events.

You gonna keep tapping your calculator and get the correct answer as soon as possible. For the verbal part, you will be given 9 passages and answer 4 questions for each, so totally 36 questions, in 20 minutes. Both speed and correct rate are important.
