    IT Attestation Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Applied via my college career site and was invited to interview. Round 1 was extremely casual, basically just a run down of my resume and a challenge I faced in each experience on my resume. I was invited for round two in NYC and it was two back to back interviews which were about 30 minutes. All behavioral questions which were easy but unfortunately my resume was extremely geared toward finance rather than information systems which is more what they were looking for.

    Transfer Pricing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I went through the whole process. Dinner before the interview day, interviews, lunch, Q&A activities. I had 3 interviews in the morning. Two guys and one lady. They are very nice and the interview questions are not hard but you do need to prepare some knowledge of transfer pricing before you go. The last interview is relatively hard compare to the first two. I think I did pretty well for interviews because they didn't ask me many hard questions, not even current trend about transfer pricing. Then I went for lunch. I think the reason that I didn't get the interview is that during the lunch time I didn't talk much becasue I was very tired. I dont know exactly the reason but other candidates talked a lot during lunch time.

    IT Forensic Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Apply the position through university's career center. Social night before on-campus interview, 30 min on-campus interview for the first round, 1 day on-site interview for the final round. Most interviews are based on behavioral questions. (Why interested in forensic industry, related school projects and/or work experiences, etc) During the on-site interview, they will give you a great accommodation near their company in downtown, Houston, a company tour with the department representatives, 2-3 final interviews with supervisors and/or managers, and social lunch with the department representatives. Most interviews will be held on Friday and the whole on-site interview process takes a day. Most questions were not that hard to answer, but I think they are looking for someone who has a deep understanding of forensic industry, customer services and a lot of work experiences.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Expect some behavioral questions. I was hired from an internship position. Originally, i was interviewed on campus. I do recall some tough questions, but overall, the interview seemed more laid back than some of the other big accounting firms. Once I got past the on-campus interview, I did interview with several other members of management prior to being offered my full-time position after graduation.
