    I applied online – interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I passed the online tests and had a telephone interview. The interview felt a bit rushed and the interviewer called late and told me she was ill. They asked all the questions you'd expect from the competencies listed on their website. Make sure you have a good few examples for each one as in the feedback I was told that it was only one question which I slipped up on.

    Interview Details

    Applied for transaction services - got through to telephone interview stage. You talk to someone who works in your department, not HR. The questions are all competency based; 3 of the 5 ones they tell you they will look for. There are a couple of situational judgement questions i.e. what would you do in this situation. There are also the standard why KPMG, why this department questions. Commercial awareness is really important, make sure that you know a company that is doing well/badly and four factors that contribute to this. There was also a question on a company that is expanding globally.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at KPMG US in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    1st round phone interview. Very typical competency based questions. The interviewer pretty much just went through the key competency listed on their career website and asked for examples of relevant past experience, so be prepared with lots of examples of yourself. The interviewer was nice, but seemed a bit impatient sometimes. So try and make your answer concise and to the point.

    Interview Details

    I had to fill out a very long internet form. I didn't get past this stage and I was given no feedback as to why. I think they are looking for the cheapest people they can get, because I met the requirements they specified, but may have been overqualified with a PhD.
