    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    30 minute one-on-one behavioral interview. It was genuinely enjoyable and I would have liked to speak to my interviewer longer. Didn't remember any questions out of the ordinary, so prepping with general behavioral questions would be a good start.

    Summer Assurance Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied through on campus recruiting and got invited for first round interview. The first round took place on campus. Before the interview, there was a reception for all the interviewees to know their interviewers. The interview seem to follow a preset set of questions and procedure, and allowed little flexibility. The interviewer does not allow me to elaborate more or diverge from the answer. Normally during behavior interviews this should be allowed.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the most difficult accounting class you have ever taken? I think all the ones I have taken are pretty easy.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Applied online after attending their info session at my school. Had a pre-interview reception the day before interview and you meet with the recruiter and interviewers. 30-minute behavioral interview for first round on campus, if you don't hear back within a week then you probably wouldn't have a second round. Second round at the location you applied for, all day event with partners and associates. Travel reimbursed

    Interview Questions
    • Normal behavioral questions. The interviewer's comment on my interests was a little weird. He said it was wacky...   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Everyone was really friendly and the process was relatively simple: application, first round interview, then an in-house second round interview. The company does a great job of letting you meet people in the firm from a partner to associates as well as putting on social events. All interviews were really friendly and thorough.

    Interview Questions
    • My interviewer asked me about my GPA and if being involved in so many extra curriculas hindered me from doing better in school.   Answer Question
