    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at KPMG US in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Prior to actually applying to KPMG, you should contact the local recruiter in order to participate in the Summer Leadership Program, where you meet people from around the office for a day and have a few informal interviews. We were required to fill out an application online prior to the due date for the on-campus interviews. A CV was also submitted with the application. Upon receiving notice of the on-campus interview, candidate would prepare and then once that interview was past (about half hour one on one), you would be selected for a second round interview at the office consisting of the whole day. You would first be put into groups for team exercises and a service project and then would have two 20 minute interviews with various levels. You then get about two hours to meet your spouse and then have them meet with partner spouses while you have a mini-social with people from the office. After that, you eat dinner with employees and their spouses and your spouse. Within 48 hours of this day, you will hear back to see if you get an offer or not. At the end of the internship, a full-time offer will be given if it is a good fit.

    The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Way to long of a process. KPMG should do a shorter 2nd round interview process. Although you get a lot of information about the company, the 12 hour process feels dragged out. I would have preferred a shorter 2nd round interview, similar to the other big 4 firms.

    The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I arrived at the office, met with a greeter, and had two interviews. Each was with a partner, both of whom were incredibly nice and friendly. Both were very welcoming, and both were very behavioral based interviews. They asked questions about my resume, and activities. I went to lunch with some of the tax professionals, from first year associates to seniors - all of whom were amazing, and I could definitely see myself working with.
