    Audit Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at KPMG (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very fair and I was asked questions relating to my CV, expectations of the role and previous experience. The interviewer was friendly and more interested in how I would fit into the role and organisation. It lasted around 35-40 minutes and I had time to ask questions at the end about the interviewers experience of the firm and his challenges.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions revolved around my previous work experience and why I was suited to the role. There were not really any technical questions, although my understanding of the audit was probed.   Answer Question

    Audit Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kiev (Ukraine)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Kiev (Ukraine)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There were 4 stages: 1st- online verbal and numerical tests(time limit, 20min for each)
    2nd - accounting and English knowledge tests in their office together with the audit case (you are writing an e-mail to your manager about some problems that you covered during your visit to the company you are going to audit)
    3rd- interview with HR (just simple questions: why audit? Why kpmg? Why are you a prime candidate? About your previous employment? Strengths and weaknesses).
    4th - interview with Audit manager (lots of questions concerning accounting transactions and excel formulas. Also I was asked about the process of audit: how to do, how can I find errors in reporting of the company, etc.)
    As for me the last stage was the most difficult, I was too nervous and the manager wasn't nice to me.
