    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went in for the 2nd round interviews, great networking event the night before interviews where we met with partners and managers. The next morning we viewed a presentation on the benefits, expectations, and opportunities of KPMG and then went in for interviews. There was also a "closed door" panel of senior and 1st year associates to answer questions. The questions were standard and revolved around the content on your resume. They expected detailed, well told stories revolving around the skills needed in the audit industry. They were also conversational, testing your ability to carry a fluid and meaningful discussion.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions for personality based and lead-ins for some type of story.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiations as far as pay for interns, but there is some leeway in determining in what industry you would like to work. They expect you to make a decision between Federal or Commercial before they extend you an offer letter.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Campus recruiter took my resume and called me to schedule an interview on campus. It was a pretty smooth process. Had the interview within the week and got a call back for a second round interview in the office where I had two interviews. Everyone was really nice. They all want you to like the company so you can come work those long hours for them in the long run as a full time employee.

    The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had the initial interview with KPMG during the campus recruiting, after around one month, got email from my recruiter saying that the chicago office just accepted my referral and will invited me to the second round interview.

    The interview is relatively easy, no tough questions at all, all the questions the interviewer asked are basic question about your background, your experience, why audit, why chicago.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was behavioral. Because all the questions that they ask are posted online already, therefore it is difficult to make an impression (everybody has similar leadership experiences and group working experience). What is important is to build a connection with a senior manager/someone from the upper management in the company, and to let the hiring managers know you personally.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my campus career services. I had an on-campus interview with an HR person, and it was purely behavioral with just going through your resume. As long as you know your resume, you will be fine. Also have some questions prepared before hand so it shows that you are proactive. The second round interview was with a partner and it was exactly the same thing. It was very easy.
