    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (Petaling Jaya (Malaysia)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    We were divided into groups and were given the opportunity to get to know each other before anything started. First, we were given a short presentation (3D printing). Then, each group is brought into a room where we discuss about what to talk about (had to do a group presentation), ie the pros, cons, ethical issues, operational issues of 3D printing. Given the case, we were like advisors, trying to convince or discourage the BOD, from investing or not investing in that particular technology.

    After presentation, comes the essay writing (no options given) and the face-to-face interview with three hiring managers/ interviewers. At the end of the day, names of those who will be offered the job will be announced.

    Interview Questions

    • The topic for presentation may not be the same. So it will be impossible to be prepared.   1 Answer

    So far so good. The entire hiring process went so slow, however it worths the experience you get going through. My advice is to be patient and do your home work preparing for each part of the interview doing as much research as you can.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Orange, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First round is really a screening process. If you've gotten the first round interview, they see you as qualified for the role. First round will include more behavioral questions than second round, simply because they want to evaluate your ability to formulate well-thought out responses on the spot. Second round is definitely more conversational. They want to make sure that you are capable of carrying conversations with their clients, and that you will be a phenomenal representation of KPMG.
