    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Long process, have not finished yet. They do not follow up, you need to write them and see what is happening. They hire people only if there are projects available.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and one in-person interview where I met with 3 interviewers back-to-back. The entire process still managed to span three months, where I eventually learned that I was the top candidate but that they decided to hire from within. They said if there were two positions, I would have the other....to reach out to the recruiter should I find another position of interest.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for the position and was called in a few days later for an on campus interview. There was a dinner the night before and everyone was very friendly and outgoing. The next morning I had the interview and got the chance to talk with an EVS manager. I was mainly asked some general behavioral questions and a technical question about a company valuation I have done in the past since I brought it up and how I approached my valuation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter who came to my campus at the time to advertise an Accounting role. I was a Finance major, and I networked with the recruiter to see if Finance positions were available. Luckily, there was something for me. I interviewed with the recruiter, then 2 other people on separate days. Very conversational interviews. Nothing too technical. Mainly behavioral questions that were easy to discuss - just to get a feel of my personality.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through campus site, got the first interview. Was strictly behavioral, really more like a conversation. In a week or so got a call from the interviewer asking me to go for a super day. It was great--a meal at Trump Tower, and awesome hotel accommodations. Got a tour of the place, got to network, etc. 2 Interviews the next day. Both also behavioral, they didn't expect much knowledge of TP. Ended up with me asking more questions than them. Got the internship offer 2 weeks later.
