    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.

    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.

    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.
