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

    Interview Details

    It was an on campus interview. I did not make it past the first round. The interviewer never smiled and made the whole interview uncomfortable. I was not asked about knowledge or skills. I was asked odd questions like what animal would I be. I am pretty certain I was disqualified because I smiled during my interview. It was a horrible experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Literally none. Maybe I got lucky, but my entire interview was just a conversation with the lead partner about school and sports. He asked about what were my favorite classes and what sports I enjoyed. He asked about my life and we just had a basic conversation. No questions about my future or anything accounting related was asked.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I was extremely disappointed by the manner in which I was treated by the recruitment team at KPMG as this was not very reflective of the company's professional reputation or brand.

    Before Christmas 2014, I had received an email from a KPMG recruiter from the "Experienced Hire Recruiting" department in Chicago. The recruiter had instructed me to fill out an internal KPMG application and had provided the link in which to do so. Upon my submission, the recruiter had reached out to say that she wanted to schedule an initial phone interview with "a member of the team".

    Upon the initial phone interview, I was told by the team member that another member from the team would be reaching out to me by telephone within 5 days to conduct a technical interview. Since that discussion, I never received a call back and none of the follow up emails to the original recruiter were answered. I had even ventured to call this recruiter at the office to inquire. The number I had called contained the voice mail of another employee at KPMG and my voice mail was never returned.

    Needless to say that I found this treatment to be very unprofessional to say the least. KPMG, and particularly the above individuals could have at least took two minutes out of their day to respond back with a simple answer yes or no.
