    Interview Details

    Online assessment includes a series of different scenario analysis. It is a kind of behavioral assessment mostly testing your problem solving skills. In additional, there is no correct solution for each question and no time limit in this online assessment. What I can do is choosing the best and least choices in each scenario.

    Graduate Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Having been an intern previously, I knew what the role was going to entail, although it was a different country. The interview process was very similar: Tests (verbal reasoning, maths, etc), a manager interview, and a Partner interview. All management had a very relaxed interview technique. Although filled with questions, they made me feel at ease which helped me answer the questions in a completely new way to what I may have otherwise rehearsed. Interview was very smooth and conversation-like. Very positive feedback and helpful when it came to answering questions I had posed to them.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Had 5 or 6 interviews with 3 different partners who clearly hadn't aligned their thoughts with eachother. Hence conflicting stories of the firms strategy and where I would contribute. Subsequent process of getting contract agreed was similarly chaotic.

    Interview Questions
    • Grilled by one of the partners as to where my value add to the firm would be, clearly unaware that they approached me in the first place   Answer Question
