    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews with directors and team leads. In person interview with VP at the new york office. Overall experience was positive, however, i was a little underwhelmed by the lack of clarity they had regarding the role on offer. The recruiter was not very helpful in answering my questions. I received the offer, and chose to decline it.

    Advisory Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at KPMG US (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The hiring/ interview process was pretty typical of a Big 4/ consulting environment; initial phone screening by a recruiter, phone call interviews (mostly behavioral and fit based) with Sr. Manager/ Director. Followed by in-person interview at local KPMG office with Director/ Partner.

    The one thing I will say about the process is that the scheduling was VERY unorganized and the phone calls somewhat disinterested. Prior to scheduling an interview the recruiter/ or assistant would reach out and ask for availability for the following week, after providing it, I got no response. After the week was up I issued a follow up email and was again asked to provide availability for the NEXT week, no apology or justification for delay in response. I would be contacted 24-48 hours prior to the scheduled interview via email confirmation, no phone call/ or email to confirm my availability.

    Finally, after going through this disorganized practice and poor applicant experience (5 weeks in), I simply informed them I had accepted another offer and declined the final interview.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed about 8 times over several months, it was a drawn out process with few updates in between interviews. There is not much flexibility in the negotiation process. Is is standard vacation and benefits based on the level you are hired at. Stay on top of your recruiters they will go a long time before contacting you with updates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting. Filled out application online and received notice of an interview request from them through my school's career website. After scheduling my interview I received an invitation to a Pre-Interview Event. The event was business casual and I got to meet my interviewer along with other KPMG employees; snacks and refreshments were provided.

    The interview process is a typical HR round. They asked questions about my resume, work experience, education and such. Also there were two behavioral questions about team experience. Very basic stuff.
