I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at KPMG US (Atlanta, GA) in October 2013.
First, talked to a recruiter. Then, sent an application. Next, had a phone interview with a principal in the practice I was interviewing for. Finally, they flew me out to Atlanta for a 2 day interview process. The first day was an informal meet and greet, followed by a dinner with employees. Next day was a morning seminar, ending with 3 one on one interviews.

An email was sent to confirm the on-campus interview. After selecting a date, a notice for pre-interview dinner event came up. Many interviewers and greeters did show up but my interviewer did not. Next day, an on-campus interview was held. The interviewer was a Director. He just went through my resume from top to the bottom and asked very general behavioral interview questions. Questions on my major and industry, and added his explanation about the industry as I hesitated a little. After a week, an email was sent that I did not make it to the second round.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at KPMG US (Mumbai (India)) in June 2008.
Multiple levels of interview. Predominantly case interviews in one-on-one as well as panel format. Case problem provided. Problem structuring, detailed analysis and strong conclusions expected. Some degree of guidance provided. Articulation key to success. Some degree of sector knowledge expected but not key. Core consulting skills are the focus of the evaluation exercise.

Associate Consultant InterviewNo OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 2 days – interviewed at KPMG US (London, England (UK)) in December 2009.
My interview process was split up into 2 days - group work and skills test on one day, and the partner presentation the following day. Group interview was not too difficult, we had to analyse the case and provide our solution. Basically, the company wanted to see that we can work in group, how we organise the discussion etc.. Skills test was on the computer - and given a limited time to complete the task I felt under a lot of time pressure. Partner interview felt relatively comfortable, the partner was quite laid-back and friendly. I got a rejection in the end - and according to the feedback I haven't performed well on the computer-based test.
