I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at KPMG US.

Interview Details – I got the opportunity to interview with the firm after giving my resume to a recruiter at a career fair. The interview process for me consisted of one phone interview with a Senior Associate followed by two short second round behavioral interviews. There was no case study.

I applied through college or university and interviewed at KPMG US.

Interview Details – Campus Recruiting Interview: first round was enjoyable, got to interview with a partner in the firm. Interview was not as structured as expected, fairly conversational. The day before the interview they held a social event to get to know the staff in a relaxed atmosphere. Second round of interviews are at the KPMG office.

Interview Question – Pretty typical behavioral based questions. Nothing really that you wouldn't find by searching typical interview questions.   Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in January 2013.

Interview Details – Interview was obtained through a scholarship program guaranteeing two interviews with large accounting firms. KPMG presented for us during the leadership program and it was actually the same presentation as one presented earlier by Deloitte. It made the company look bad and unprepared honestly. The lady who interviewed me was quite strange. One question she asked me was, "Why choose KPMG? Do you prefer us over the other Big Four?" And she drilled me on that.

Interview Question – Surely you have a top choice for the firm you want to work with? Threw me off because I wasn't prepared to say KPMG.   View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2013.

Interview Details – Initially applied through on-campus recruiting and participated in a one-on-one interview at my school. Afterwards I was invited to a four-hour office visit, which consisted of a brief company introduction, 2 half-hour interviews, and a 2-hour lunch with their associates. I received the offer within 2 hours of completing the second interview. Everyone was very friendly, and the experience was enjoyable.

All the questions in the three interviews were entirely behavioral and often the conversation was rather casual.

Interview Question – Why did you choose your school?   Answer Question
