Tax Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at KPMG US in March 2014.

Interview

Applied through university career website. The first interview was with a partner. He was really nice and I liked him very much. The interview was for about 30 minutes, and I was surprised that he asked me only few questions (Maybe that was enough for him). The questions were pretty much behavioral. He asked me if I have any questions, and I asked few until time ran out. I think it was 15 minutes of me talking and 15 minutes of him talking. I got a phone call in 3-4 business days about second round of interview at the office. I interviewed with 2 partners there. It was same idea - no technical questions. I think they want to see if they like you and you will be a good fit. UPDATE: The second round interview was on Friday, and I got a phone call on Monday morning from the recruiting manager telling me that I got the internship. I really like how the process with KPMG is super quick!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US in February 2014.

    Interview

    My first interview was an on campus interview. That week they called to tell me that they wanted me to go to their office. I interacted with the staff through social events and everyone was really nice. On the day of the office visit I had two "interviews" which were more of casual conversation with the managers. Afterwards, there was a panel where you could ask them questions, and then they treat me to lunch.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US (New York, NY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through campus career services, and had three interviews--two with partners and one with a manager. Both rounds of interviews were preceded by pre-interview dinners, although the people I interviewed with weren't present at either. Manager interview was very standard, partner interviews were more free-flowing, and focused much more on interests. All of the questions were behavioral, and there was lots of time for my own questions.

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus interview program. Pre-interview dinner the night before with all candidates applying to KPMG. The dinner was mainly to get to know the interviewers for the following day. First interview was one on one and was conversational with no behavioral questions. Was e-mailed about a week and a half later for second interview. Second interview was office visit and was very brief (only 30 minutes with conversational questions again).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I went to a pre-interview dinner which helped get to know the bosses. The interviewer asked about my leadership skills, education, and community service. It wasn't "hard" but then again I had already networked with the employers on campus before the actual interview.

    Negotiation

    There was no need to negotiate. I was very pleased with my salary offer (plus signing bonus).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at KPMG US (Orlando, FL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I met with their recruiters on campus, and received an invitation to an on-campus interview and a pre-interview social the night before. The on-campus interview was mostly just a conversation and discussion of my resume. After that, I received an invite to an office visit (the "Inside Look"). The office visit consisted of a dinner/meet and greet, then multiple interviews the next day with various managers and partners. The interviews were largely just conversations more than anything.
