    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    One recruiter very outgoing and nice. The other seems a but unapproachable. Asked mostly behavioral questions, and answered with more information about the firm. Don't base your judgment of the firm based on the personalities of the recruiters. They are very different from the people that actually work there.

    The people were very cordial and accomodating. it was a typical accounting interview; a mix of cultural fit questions with more auditing kinda questions and firm specific questions. Was able to interview with very senior people and who were firm yet fair. The technical questions were related to the three main accounting statements . I went to lunch with two associates that were good people.

    They recruit from all the business schools in town, and the ones with the highest gpa gets in the first round of interviews. The people acted very nice and ”unformal” and I got the impression that they maybe wanted me to taket he lead in the conversation more than I did. Only the standard interview questions, no case or brain teesers. They do two rounds of interviews and only standard questions in both.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I am talking about KPMG, world's one of the best audit firm, and so my chance of getting selected was minimum as I am not an accountant yet (part complete). Even though i felt that the interview wasn't bad as I spoke and presented myself confidently. I tried to answer all their questions positively , I think that is all that matters,
