I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US.

Interview Details – I had a wonderful experience recruiting with KPMG. Wonderful people and great events. Took the time to get to know me unlike the other big four firms. First I had on campus interview, which we had a pre-interview dinner. I made it to the next round which is the office visit. In between the first interview and office visit there were several events, as well as individual events with a KPMG professional.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in November 2013.

Transfer Pricing Intern Interview

Transfer Pricing Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2012.

Interview Details – Great interview experience. Interviewed in their Houston office. Very nice building. Spent two hours in three or four different interviews with small groups of 2 or 3 employees. Under normal circumstances that would be awful, but everyone was very nice and it was easy to talk to them.

Accounting Intern Interview

Accounting Intern
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 months - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2012.

Interview Details – I went through a semester-long recruiting program with my university where I was exposed to over twenty firms. I chose to sign for my internship with KPMG because of the friendly and personalized nature of every interaction I had with employees at all levels. From personally handwritten letters from a partner to a phone call from an associate asking if I had any questions about the process. I had an initial interview that was extremely laid back (by this time I had been to a few social events with them). I also had an office visit in which there was no interview. Most of KPMG's hiring process through the university recruitment came through social events, dinners, and on campus events. They recruited through personality of the firm, which I was drawn to.

Interview Question – I can't think of any particular difficult question I was prompted with; however, most of my interviews in this industry consist mainly of behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – For an intern position, there was no negotiation process.
