Advisory Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at KPMG US.

Interview Details

After submitting my resume and cover letter online, I was contacted a few months later once they began the interview process. Since I was out of the country at the time, I was interviewed on the phone for over two hours by a panel of senior management. Within 3 weeks I received a phone call from one of my interviewers who offered me the position personally, rather than an email.

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

    Interview Details

    On campus interview was very analytical. Asked situational questions, went over every bullet on resume. Talked with interviewer, tried to make the interview more of a conversation. Second round interview was a day long process, showed everyone the building, inside of KPMG and then had 2 rounds of interviews. These second round interviews were much more laid back, basically wanted to see if you could hold a conversation.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got the first round interview by applying through the university career website and attending career fair at university. The first round was mainly behavioral. Questions focused on your resume, leadership and working in teams. I got invited to the second round interview and flew to Atlanta and stayed in a hotel (at their expense) within walking distance of the KPMG office. The second round consisted of a manager interview, sr. manager interview, and associate lunch/interview. The number of associates varies depending on the number of applicants for that area. I had lunch with 3 associates and 3 other applicants. The interviews were based on testing your personality and how well you would fit in. The best advice I can give you is to be confident. They know when you are nervous. And don't let KPMG's reputation as being the most personable big4 fool you. They are more serious than you think.

    Negotiation Details
    Never negotiate an internship offer. Chances are you don't have the experience or the knowledge to ask for higher compensation.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position at my university website. Got a call, attended the first round in campus. They were basic behavioural type questions and a little bit more about what I did during my previous internships. Got selected and was invited to office the following week. Ofice interview was great, had 2 back to back interviews with managers, they were really nice and I kept the conversation stuck to them and questions realted to what they were doing and what projects they are working etc. A week later I got a call and was told that I was selected.

    Negotiation Details
    Well basically they send you the offer online and give you few days to accept it. If you have a better offer then you could probably negotiate. But I wouldn't recommend doing that for an internship.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    On campus recruiter was rude and snobby. She was also more than 15 minutes late. It gave me a terrible impression of the company despite their strong branding as a Big 4 firm. I immediately felt alienated and did not want to pursue the hiring process beyond the first interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I was expecting more behavioral questions, so when she asked me more advanced technical knowledge, I was caught off guard.   Answer Question
