Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in February 2017.

Interview

Very poor and long process way too many representatives questioning you. They ask you a ton of personality questions. It was part off a three step process that lasted well over four weeks. After that they finally came to a decision.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG in June 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by onsite, complete silence from recruiters in the both times I've interviewed following my internship. Extremely unprofessional recruiters that despite being emailed would fail to respond to every request even when just emailing to ask basic follow-up and concerns regarding expenses.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (Bengaluru (India)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The process consisted of two rounds - a Group Discussion followed by a combined Technical-HR Interview.

    Group Discussion : The groups were of the sizes of 8 - 10 members. Topics were mostly opinion based. Time allotted was 10 minutes which included 1 min for drawing a conclusion if possible.

    The candidates were judged mainly on three parameters - the ability to raise good points and highlight important aspects, leadership skills and willingness to take initiatives.

    One or two candidates from every group were selected for the Personal Interview.

    Personal Interview:
    The panel consisted of one HR and two technical members. Questions were mainly based on the candidates CV. The important parameters for selection in this stage were - analytical skills, communication, reasoning skills, willingness to learn, candidates personality and strong motivation to pursue a career in consulting sector.

    The interview started with a few HR questions leading further to technical and analytical questions. A few puzzles were also asked. There were questions on current affairs too.

    Knowledge of the consulting sector and the company was also tested. (in other words, ability to retain information from the pre-placement PPT)

    Overall, the interview was a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at KPMG (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Initial was a telephonic screening followed by face to face interaction with 2 of the HR people, discussion was very good and interactive. Then the senior manager took the second round. Team was very hospitile and friendly. The infrastructure was very good. I really liked the cabin for the interview as it was more of casual approach similar to a coffee nest with pleasant lighting rather than the retro glass door kind of cabin.

    Campus Placement: Test, GD, Interview, Director Interview

    Little elimination in the first 2 steps

    The interview was more technical than HR.
    They asked questions about Accounts, Financial Statements, Valuation, Mergers and Acquisition, IPOs, general awareness, etc, and preferred detailed and descriptive answers
    HR: questions about family background, willingness to relocate, passion, etc

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (New Delhi (India)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Asked a couple of questions about resume, activities, future plans (whether MBA was in the cards?), why you think you're good for this job.
    Then there was a round where they basically threw current business-related questions at you, like which British company was recently bought by Tata (Jaguar Motors); which firm is called "Big Blue" and many more such questions about companies. These questions were like a not-so-perfect litmus test to measure the candidate's knowledge and interest in current business scenarios, since the job involved working with clients as a management consultant.

    Interview Questions
