    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first step in the interview process was an on campus interview. The night prior to the interview, KPMG recruiters and associates hosted a dinner and cocktail hour to allow candidates the chance to meet their interviewers and get more comfortable with the company. The on campus interview consisted of a 45 minute interview with a manager; general behavioral questions. A week later I was invited to the office interview. The officer interview consisted of all the candidates staying at a very nice hotel in downtown Atlanta the night before. We were invited to a cocktail hour, followed by a dinner out at an upscale restaurant with two other candidates and six KPMG associates from the group I was interviewing for. The next day started off with recruiters and partners pitching KPMG and speaking about the different lines of service. We were then treated to lunch with the people we were interviewing with/against. Immediately following lunch were three interviews; manager, director, and partner. After that we went home. Two weeks later I received a call from the campus recruiter offering me the internship.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round interview over the phone, they want to see you know who they are and what forensic technology is. They ask you about yourself and your resume. A week or so goes by and you get invited to a second round at HQ where there are three interviews and a lunch. Everyone was really kind and interested in you. Interviews for me were all about my resume and fit with the organization. Was told I'd hear back in two weeks but had to follow up after four weeks to get the no.

    I felt like the people were very boring. I know this sounds like a strange answer, but at the socials and in the interviews I just never "clicked" with their professionals.
