    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at KPMG US (Melbourne (Australia)).

    Interview

    Extremely friendly - two interviews with a partner and senior manager. Also was asked to write a mock email to a client and to complete a psychometric test. Was an extremely fast turn around - found out within the day of the final round.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Online Psychometric Testing (2 rounds) and a Partner Interview. Partner interview was face-to-face with Partner and Director. It was very topic focussed and my attempts initially to make conversation were steered back to their questions and my answers. Questions were largely behavioural based and asked usual interview situational questions. The interview was very long and gruelling, to be honest and often when I answered the questions they wanted more, either details or different examples. I did not think I went so well!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal. The interviewer dispensed with many of the formalities. We established a good rapport quickly. The experience overall was not very daunting, assuming you have done the preparation. There were a series of networking events which lead to a more formalised interview process.

    Interview

    Online assessment includes a series of different scenario analysis. It is a kind of behavioral assessment mostly testing your problem solving skills. In additional, there is no correct solution for each question and no time limit in this online assessment. What I can do is choosing the best and least choices in each scenario.
