Audit Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG.

Interview

Submitted resume through school for on-campus interview. Interviewer attempted to meddle in my personal life and essentially told me that all the hard work I had done to accomplish my goal of graduating college debt-free was pointless, not useful to the company, and not sustainable. Received rejection letter via email the same day as the interview.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career center website. Got a on-campus interview. They do a pre-night event to get to know some of the employees. The actual interview was very comfortable, some behavioral questions and time at the end to ask some questions myself. I did not move on to the second round but was happy for the experience.

    Interview

    On campus interview. Partner was easy going and easy to talk too. Lasted 30 minutes. Feel as though the limited experience I did possess actually hurt me. I had more experience than other graduates but not enough to be considered "experienced hire".

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I started by applying online through my school. The campus interview was with a partner. The interview was very conversational. Got an email for the second interview later that day. Second interview was a two day event. Progressive dinner the first night, lots of repetitive conversations, but still a good night. The second day was a breakfast, two interviews, and going out for coffee with an associate. Both interviews were split between 15 minutes of behavioral and 15 minutes of conversational. After the whole event, I got a call two hours later with an offer.
