    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US (San Antonio, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The overall interview process was good. I applied through campus recruiting and was selected for an interview. On the night before the interview, KPMG treated all of the interviewees to dinner. The first interview was a relaxing conversation. The following day, I received a call back that I was granted an office visit. During the office visit process, KPMG pays for you to stay in a hotel and hosts a networking dinner the night before. The office visit had two 30 minute interviews with a manager and a senior manager. There was also a panel to answer questions with 3 KPMG professionals. The senior manager called me a few hours later and offered me the position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (Bloomington, IN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Met with the head campus recruiter multiple times prior to the interview. At the interview I met with an associate to ask general questions then was interviewed by a partner. Meeting with the associate was a good way to get a relaxed feel before meeting with the partner. The partner was very excited to meet with me and was interested in what I wanted from the company, and what I could offer it.

    Interview

    Everyone was really friendly and the process was relatively simple: application, first round interview, then an in-house second round interview. The company does a great job of letting you meet people in the firm from a partner to associates as well as putting on social events. All interviews were really friendly and thorough.

    Interview Questions

    • My interviewer asked me about my GPA and if being involved in so many extra curriculas hindered me from doing better in school.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    I started off with an on-campus interview. I didn't really know much about the company and hadn't met any professionals although my school held a lot of events to encourage networking. The interview was very easy, the interviewer was very nice and welcoming and just asked me to walk her through my resume and what I learned from each job. I articulated the leadership and communication skills I learned and she was pleased. The interview was very conversational and she left a lot of time for questions. I was not very interested in KPMG since EY wass my top choice, but she made that all change. I was informed I got the second round interview the next day, and a week later I had my office visit. The night before the interviews we had a dinner with KPMG professionals and it was very nice if you know how to socialize. The next day, we had a variety of presentations, team building exercises, an office tour, interviews (one with a partner, another with a senior manager), and a very nice lunch with 2 associates. I would say that if you are a genuine, social, and nice person, there is no reason why you shouldn't get an offer. Got my offer 2 hours after the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview

    The interview was quite conversational. They didn't ask me any behavioral questions. Just be confident and avoid over-selling yourself. You'd better think of some examples of situations in your life, work, or school in which you had to overcome a challenging situation and how you led a team to achieve a successful outcome.

    • Nothing difficult. Went through your resume in details.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Met at my college. They had a reception the night before interviews with sheets that had our interviewers on them. Was a great way to get to know your interviewer in a more relaxed environment. Very relaxed at every stage of the process. 30 minute interviews at our campus career center the next day.
