Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2014.

Interview Details

Met recruiters at career fair and applied online at KPMG's site. Received an on-campus interview and was invited to a pre-interview dinner the night before. Met very outgoing, personable KPMG professionals. On-campus interview was for 30 minutes with a partner of the Dallas office. Felt more like a conversation and less like an interview. Head back within a week or so with an offer to visit the office. Between the interview and the office visit, there were several social outings with the company where I met more professionals from the Dallas office and some current interns.

    I met a recruiter who then passed on my information to HR. I received a call about 6 months after meeting the recruiter at a career fair. She asked if I would meet the academic requirements and a quick and professional hiring process occurred for the next month.

    Interview Questions
    • The second interviewer on my in person interview asked very concise questions that were technical. Like please describe your involvement in X. When I mentioned some of the techniques that were used in X he asked everything regarding who what where when and why surrounding X.   View Answer

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I was selected for a first round interview through my college career center. The interview was on campus, and lasted half an hour. It was a one on one interview with an audit manager. All the questions were straightforward (mostly behavioral). A lot of the interview was conversation; ultimately he wanted to get an idea of who I was and if I would be a good fit for the office.

    Interview Questions
    • No technical questions, all behavioral. Go in having a few stories you can draw on for various behavioral situations.   Answer Question

    interviewed at KPMG US in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interview for tax intern position in KPMG. The first round was on-campus interview. Interviewer was friendly, and all questions were behavioral. After about two weeks, I was invited to the second and final round. It happened in the company. After the company's presentation, there were two interviews. It was also about behavioral questions and questions about my resume. Also, they asked how many accounting courses or related courses I took.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Pre-selected for on-campus interviewing then was moved on to second round of interviews taking place during their 2-day Inside Look event. The event was great, very well organized and got to meet many employees throughout the entire hierarchy.

    Had 3 different interviews with 2 directors and a senior associate, then a case study. Interviews were relaxed and made me feel comfortable. Questions are somewhat behavioral but they like to hear why you are good for a specific position.

    Case study was ok. More technical knowledge was needed but interviewer acknowledge that fact.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the internship through the Washington, DC externship program. All interviews geared entirely towards determining your personality and if you are a sociable, friendly person. Show that you have hobbies and enthusiasm and that you are a person that coworkers can work with in a small room. Try to get to know recruiters ahead of time through on-campus events or through personal connections.
