    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at KPMG US (Moscow (Russia)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Most of the interviews in the Audit 4 are the same- first you should take several tests for mathematical and logic skills,then you will be interviewed by HR manager,who will ask some personal questions,which are focused on testing your communication skills,then you shpold pass one or a few interviews with managers of your potential department

    Interview Questions

    • One of the most unexpected questions was "did you take our proficiency test personally? Because the one you took at home is significantly different from the one you took at the office" I had no worries,because I took both of the all by myself,and an HR manager won't even tell you,which one us better. I suppose they are just checking for your reaction, but that one question was really unexpected.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not prepared to spent so much time at work while I was studying. The expectations was a bit higher,then they were in reality and I was a bit disappointed with my future responsibilities.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at KPMG US (Moscow (Russia)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process for Intern position in audit department is quite simple and straightforward. You need to be prepared for standard fit questions in the first round interview with HR and simple accounting questions in the second (with department representative). There is a huge need in additional hands during busy season and general requirements are not strong enough thus you have to be hired if you really want to.

    Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Moscow (Russia)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at KPMG US (Moscow (Russia)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Lots of contact by telephone and email. After passing the initial screening, completed online exams. Afterwards was invited for an interview, first with HR, afterwards was invited for a second interview with the managers and partners. Overall impression of the company was very nice, all of the managers I spoke with were very friendly and had lots of positive things to say about the company. The interview with the partner wasn't nearly as pleasant and eventually I was glad I didn't get an offer because I don't think I would have accepted it—lots of overtime for a very low salary. However, it was a good experience and the company has lots of friendly faces that would make working here pleasant.
