    Senior Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    There was nothing out of the ordinary with the interview process itself, I ultimately ended up interviewing with 3 different people prior to getting a job offer.

    The interview process ended up taking months, because a partner that I was supposed to interview with ended up being out of the country, then overbooked, then on-site with a client somewhere, then not available for other reasons...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Accepted to the Discovery Leadership Program. On-Campus interview. It wasn't bad at all. Interviewed 1:1 with 2 Senior Managers. One was a conversation and the other was technical. The conversation consisted of speaking about myself and learning more about what he does. The technical interview consisted of asking questions about the statements, excel, and a straightforward brainteaser. Overall, not bad. The main advice is to be yourself and show your personality.

    Senior Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US (McLean, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    UNORGANIZED AND RUDE. I was emailed by a recruiter MONTHS after I responded to an opening, to schedule a phone interview.....I was told I had to send her my resume and also complete an online application (great, another hour of my time after I already did this once)....After two emails from her about scheduling, she replied telling me she's send a confirmation. Instead of receiving a confirmation, I received a generic response the nest day that I am no longer being considered for the position. No mention of why, no reason, just all of a sudden, after she'd already seen my credentials, I am not under consideration when she led me to believe that an interview was in the process of being scheduled. I intentionally waited to complete the online application because I already have a job offer on the table....I was only going to consider it since they called. I DON'T CARE. It's the principle of the matter and that I could have taken more of my time to go thru her process. I've grown tired of the treatment by these recruiters who should at the end of the day, feel EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL. This is the SECOND time I've had an issue with KPMG...the last time they told me they were scheduling a call, I never received confirmation at all and the call came when I didn't expect it to - from an international number and someone who didn't speak English well enough to properly discuss the position, much less transcribe the call OR make decisions. Never again will I apply here.

    Interview

    More of a conversation than interview. I interviewed for internship during college so the interview process is more relaxed. I am not sure how the direct hire or transfer interviews are, but I think senior management made up their decision before you were interviewed.
