Application Details

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in November 2009.

Interview Details

The interview process was very laid back and relaxed. I interviewed with a senior manager first on my college's campus, and it consisted mostly of behavioral questions. Found out the next day that I was advancing to the next round, which consisted of a 'superday' where I met and networked with partners, etc. Some additional interviews, offered a position later that day.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    2 interviews, one with HR and one with a partner. The atmosphere was very good, and it did not feel too formal, some fun moments were included.

    HR asked standardized questions but also showed interest for unique CV points.

    Partner mostly explained KPMG and told me about the attractiveness of the Audit Internship.

    Interview Details

    Graduate program. I was invited to an open evening before the interview where you can talk with current employees. At the interview we were given laptops and had a task to write about two topics in 30mins. The questions were like: You have €1 million to start a company, what type of company would you start and why? What would you do if you were the minister for finance? Then there were two hour long interviews where they asked for examples of when you worked in a team etc. They also asked me about a couple of different companies, you should have at least three prepared and not the one on your application form. The tone of both interviews was very relaxed.

    The interviewer sounded like from an outsourced company. Because she was a completely robot. When I didn't hear her clearly and asked to confirm if what I heard was correct, she told me she couldn't answer my question, all she could do was to repeat the question again.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at KPMG US in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for winter internship before the campus recruiting season. I took quantitative and verbal tests but did not make it to interview that winter. Later when I applied for full-time, my record was still in the system so I skipped written test and directly moved on to interviews. I first had interview with one senior manager and manager. They asked about team work experiences, how to handle pressure and the reason why I chose audit since my major was not. About one week later, I got a phone call from KPMG to schedule an interview with partner. The second interview with partner was pretty short and focused more on career plan and how you see yourself in near future.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions about pressure were rather unexpected (more in how direct they ask them, like do you ever stayed up all night to finish a project ).   View Answer

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I did its summer and winter internship a year ago so I had not asking for a manager interview -- a 30 min presentation to describe a firm, better be one of its client. I was scheduled directly to the partner interview, the questions were straight forward, more like chat other than interview. The partner went through my resume, asking about the teamwork in internship period, the company culture. Last, she told me the most attracted thing in big 4 was merely mentioned by the recently grad -- the clear and organized career path. She also mentioned keep passion on your working could let you survive during the peak season.
