    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty easy. Had a coffee initially with someone from the office then a couple days later had two behavioral interviews back to back with two higher-ups from the office I was going to be working in. They vet you as a candidate beforehand so these interviews seemed to simply be a way to get to know you and your personality.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical questions. When did you have to lead a team through a tough situation? When were you faced with an issue with your boss?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was an intern so I'm pretty sure negotiating was out of the question.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from a recruiter saying he wanted to schedule a phone interview. I responded immediately, told him I was on vacation so I had open availability all week and would love to connect, blah blah. Then, silence. I followed up twice. No response. Then, just to test to see if he was a legit person, I found him on LinkedIn and sent him a connect request. He accepted it immediately. So then I emailed him a third time, and STILL no response. Nothing. I'll probably never bother applying for a job at KPMG because of this experience. Totally unprofessional.

    I don't get it...

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus recruiting. I had one 30 min interview with a partner. The interview was very conversational, I think they were just trying to see if I would be a good fit. He asked me to tell me about myself, why I wanted to work at KPMG, why fed audit, CPA plans..etc. I was notified within a week that I was invited to a second round interview at the office. The second round interview was over two days and consisted of presentations, networking, dinner and two interviews. Again, the two interviews at the office were very personable and focused on trying to get to know me. I was asked a few more behavioral questions. I received an offer the following week.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college. I met some staff at the reception, and they were extremely friendly. The on-campus interview was behavioral, nothing too hard or challenging. At the second round interview, I had the chance to meet the partner, who had a good sense of humor, and all other staff. The interviews were even more relaxing. They just wanted to know about me, my personality, and my work ethic. After the office visit, I felt like it's a place that I would love to go to work every day.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume and was chosen among 30 others for an interview. We were all allocated 30 minute slots and went in to interview with 2 interviewers, who mainly spoke about what the position entailed. They sat on opposite ends of the room, and left me in the middle, which was slightly awkward.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about a couple of different tax vehicles that are up and coming, but it wasn't expected to be known. The most unexpected thing was that they didn't ask that many questions, but one interviewer mainly spoke non-stop for 30 minutes.   Answer Question
