Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (New York, NY) in May 2014.

Interview

Really pull from their intern pool. They do not ask detailed questions, only behavioral. They really seek to find a culture fit and assume that if you can pass the CPA and graduate with a respectable GPA that you can fulfill all the technical requirements. They like to see team work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (Oxford, MS) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interview went smoothly mainly behavioral questions. They asked one techincal quesiton but that was it. Overall friendly and nice people. I think they sort of had an idea of who they were hiring going into the interviews based on their outtings. If your GPA is not in the 3.5 plus range and do not have a connection they essentially do not consider you

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    After applying through my university, I was contacted for a first round interview. It was your typical 30 minute, 1 on 1 interview. Out of all my first round interviews, this was undoubtedly my least favorite one. The interviewer seemed to be trying to stay awake and the conversation was very one-sided. The interviewer asked a lot of standard questions and I definitely did not feel a connection between us as the minutes dwindled on. I could tell that the interviewer was not very interested in me or my story.
