    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Risk -IT advisory
    The interview was with a Director and manager. The people were very nice and the team was excited to make me a part of the team. The HR manager had no idea how to handle an H1B visa and goofed up the process. It's good things dud not go further though I was desperate to get a job with them. The IT audit area can get boring.

    Global Advantage Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Overall the process felt very casual and natural. It started off with an on campus interview with a manager. All questions were behavioral and common for a second year student. They notified me that day I was invited to the local leadership conference. About a month or two later they invited me to do an office tour and interview for the Global advantage program. That was at the office where they did an office tour and two different Partners interviewed me. Once again, behavioral questions nothing too hard.

    Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1. screener with hr team member from South Africa 2. hiring manager phone call 3. phone call with director of department. No opportunity to interview in person.
    Everyone I spoke to was fairly unfriendly and not conversational by any means. It was a bit uncomfortable at times as the interviewers seemed unprepared and not interested in learning anything about me outside of what was already on my resume. One hiring manager was yawning quite continuously, another did not have questions ready nor responded to anything I said so there were long pauses. I spent a lot of time preparing for the interview, felt I was on my game and very qualified for the role so it was a disappointing process. Waited about a month to hear back and was only given feedback that they were not continuing with me once I had reached out.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    2 rounds of interviewing, on campus then office visit. Interview was mostly conversational. You have 2 30 minute interviews with different higher up people. Both were senior directors but a partner may take interviews. Second round interviews are very relaxed. If you make it to the second round, they obviously recognize your talent, so be relaxed.
