    Initial interview was at my school. Interview was with a partner from the division and area I wanted. Very casual interview but once they heard my GPA I feel like the interviewed lost interest. Did not receive a call back

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through my local University. However my university recruits heavily and are a BIG 4 magnet. In my honest opinion you should always try to go to all info sessions and socials so that you can network. As a transfer to a top 25 uni and top 5 accounting program i only regret not networking. My gap was not bad 3.5 but if i networked life would have been SOOOO much easier during the recruiting process.

    Interview Details

    It was a very relaxed interview over all. The company its self is very intimidating but interview when great in my opinion. They try to recruit the very best people in the industry so you should be prepared for very heavy compaction. You want to prepare for the interview. It is generally pretty standard questions and there are also a few curve balls throghn in there

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    The interview was quite conversational. They didn't ask me any behavioral questions. Just be confident and avoid over-selling yourself. You'd better think of some examples of situations in your life, work, or school in which you had to overcome a challenging situation and how you led a team to achieve a successful outcome.

    Interview Details

    I applied through both business school's career site and KPMG link, and I got invitation for the first round campus interview by the end of its deadline. I scheduled to be the first one, and arrived on time. Socialized with the two Grader while waiting to be interviewed. A senior manager interviewed me and he was very nice to walk me through his experience and team culture. It was more of conversation than interview. The questions are: 1 Tell me about yourself. 2 Couple questions to check and evaluate my experience in resume. It is a good experience. And I am still preparing the second round on-site.
