    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US in July 2013.

    Interview

    We started with a written aptitude test that consisted of numerical and verbal tests over a period of one hour. The next hour involved creative judgement test that consisted of judging a situation and giving as many solutions to the problem as possible. After three weeks, we were invited to a group assessment. In this process 40 candidates were invited at a time. 10 of them were selected randomly for a brief interview before being split for the group assessment. It actually involved a panel interview of five minute. A 'tell us about yourself question' to all interviewees, and another customised question for each interviewee. Then there was a group assessment where there was a group problem to be solved. the group was split into two groups each with 5 members. We then had to argue points so that we could convince the other team to see from our perspective. Here, one has to take care not to be overly silent or over-shadow other team members. After three weeks, there was an invitation for career briefing, where candidates were given a chance to choose 3 functions within KPMG which interested them and rank them accordingly. In that week, there was an invitation to managers interview in proceeding week. The interview took approximately 25 minutes and three managers. Two were managers within the function one chose and one from the HR department. We were responded to within a week and I was unsuccessful. The others were invited for partner's interviews and it was just warming up for the task ahead.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Having been an intern previously, I knew what the role was going to entail, although it was a different country. The interview process was very similar: Tests (verbal reasoning, maths, etc), a manager interview, and a Partner interview. All management had a very relaxed interview technique. Although filled with questions, they made me feel at ease which helped me answer the questions in a completely new way to what I may have otherwise rehearsed. Interview was very smooth and conversation-like. Very positive feedback and helpful when it came to answering questions I had posed to them.
