Senior Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2014.

Tax Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 5 months - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2013.
Interview Details – Meet with recruiters in the campus job fair, and about 1 week later I was invited to the first round interview. I was interviewed with a manager and all behavior questions. After 1 week from the first round interview, I got the opportunity to the second round. I had three 1:1 interviews with either senior managers or partners, had lunch with associates and had a office tour. Nothing unexpected. They are all very nice.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Answer Question
Summer Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2010.
Interview Details – After preliminary certification through my school's career office, I was able to submit my resume, references, and an unofficial copy of my transcript through KMPG's website. Probably due to my G.P.A. alone [3.7+ at that time], I landed a first round interview.
Interview Question – As my interview stayed avoided unduly technical questions, there weren't any questions that we difficult, per se; however, he did ask me one question so odd that it caught me off guard: "From your work experience, what's the greatest compliment you've received?" Though I froze up at the time, in retrospect, I probably could have salvaged the moment by responding with a comment or phrase from my previous employer's letter of recommendation. Answer Question
