    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straight forward. During my talk with the partner it almost felt as if I was interviewing him. The interview with the manager was more about my resume and my experiences. There is also a presentation about the company where you get a chance to ask questions before you go into the two interviews. Following these 3 sections, you go out to lunch with a few associates and get a chance to ask them questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (Short Hills, NJ) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I got contacted by the Recruiter Director over the phone to check in my availability to be considered for an Associate Expatriate position (even though I applied online for that position!). She then sent me details for an office interview with the team members of the International Tax Group. The interview lasted 2 and a half hours and was with 5 people of the team. All of them very nice and they explained all the details about the Groups, what I would be doing if hired and the interview was more conversational rather than asking me specific questions. I got a good vibe after leaving the office. However after 4 weeks of follow ups and getting no answer the HR person finally informed me that they were not going to pursue any more conversations at that time. One day after the job was reposted on kpmg careers website. Short Hills office is not the office you want to apply to. Very unprofessional and lack of feedback and courtesy to candidates.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at KPMG US (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I first applied for the company by sending in an online application for their sophomore leadership program called Discover KPMG. That was in January/February. The recruiter was very nice. In March, I was invited to an on campus with a manager in audit, who I loved. He was talkative and friendly. He asked questions about the leadership positions I had on my resume. I was offered a spot at the program in June, where I interviewed for the tax summer internship for the next year.

    My interviewer was a tax manager, who was nice, but she did not impress me because she read typical questions off a sheet of lined paper and did not provide enough time for me to ask her the questions I had in mind. I expected to have more than just one question answered because I was considering another Big 4 firm who had already given me an internship offer. After the interview, I met more professionals throughout the leadership program, which was successful and gave me a feel for the company culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you interested in just any Big 4 or why KPMG?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I believe I fit in more with the culture at another Big 4. The other firm also had a larger presence in my city, with more opportunities.
