Audit Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in June 2016.

Interview

it was over the phone I was aboard and they wanted me to fly to us to get interviewed which sound unreasonable for me so I told them I went fly just to make an interview. they told me it's very competitive market it was for due diligence. the recruiter at first was very nice and charming but in the end, she disappointed me a lot because she closed me this opportunity. what can I say? maybe I did have the right culture for this because I am more of telling people what I think on their face and many Americans are not like this. I tried afterward to apply independently but I couldn't probably because they have records that I wasn't accepted in another channel.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    I applied online and was interviewed a few times. I met senior associates, managers, and partners. I have heard that round one of interviewing is the hardest, but I would recommend to not take the final round lightly. Every interviewer is different and some may have higher expectations than others. I enjoyed the people and was happy about the outcome.
