    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (Ranchi (India)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    There was two rounds of interview, the first one being technical taken by a panel of HR representatives and the second one was an HR interview taken by a partner of the firm. Both interviews were positive. In the technical round all questions were asked from the resume itself. Projects were asked to explain in the simplest language so that a kid could understand. Some other technical questions and puzzles were asked too. In the HR round, a few general questions were asked, some practical application of my engineering knowledge etc.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KPMG (London, England (UK)) in December 2009.

    Interview

    My interview process was split up into 2 days - group work and skills test on one day, and the partner presentation the following day. Group interview was not too difficult, we had to analyse the case and provide our solution. Basically, the company wanted to see that we can work in group, how we organise the discussion etc.. Skills test was on the computer - and given a limited time to complete the task I felt under a lot of time pressure. Partner interview felt relatively comfortable, the partner was quite laid-back and friendly. I got a rejection in the end - and according to the feedback I haven't performed well on the computer-based test.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at KPMG (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    It was a 2 tier process. manager round and partner round. Manager round was good. Partner round experience was awful. He was least interested in taking the interview and seemed like he had made up his mind already not to select. He finished the interview in just 7.50 mins and asked only 2 technical questions. I don't understand what was the point of wasting his and my time if had already pre decided the things ! Candidates should be given a fair chance i believe.

    Zuerst gab es ein Kennenlernen beider Seiten. Anschließend wurden Fragen zum Lebenslauf gestellt. Man musste Begründungen geben für Entscheidungen, die man getroffen hat. Es wurden fragen zur Entscheidung für die ausgeschriebene Stelle gestellt. Warum hat man sich für die KPMG entschieden. Motivation für den Arbeitsbereich. Fachspezifische Fragen. Sehr freundliche Atmosphäre.
