    Interview

    In-depth, relevant and friendly. I had 2 screening phone interviews and then two behavioral phone interviews. I had my first screen in December 2016 and instead of in person interviews, I had 30 min. phone interviews, because of a schedule conflict.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne (Australia)

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Melbourne (Australia)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Incredibly intimidating and cold.

    Both the interviewers were robots. They show no emotion and almost look like they're incapable of smiling.

    It was a very chilling experience that lasted an immeasurable amount of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I firstly applied through online application and then was required to do online tests.
    After a day or so you receive an video interview e-mail. There are 3 questions, and I remember there are 2 minutes to prepare and a minute to answer (the time differed by questions but these are averages).
    If you pass this stage, you are required to come along to the Assessment Centre to do a interview. Good luck guys!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1. Online Application
    2. Numerical, Verbal and SJT - quite straightforward, nothing to catch you out on
    3. LaunchPad Day
    Started off with a group exercise, then went on to lunch, then had the individual written exercise (asked to write a report on a company - was quite time constricted so make sure you only write down what is necessary), then went to have a Q&A with graduate trainees (all were very helpful and from different departments). Lastly had the interview. Interviewer was lovely and made me feel extremely comfortable. Only lasts 20 minutes, have a sign coming round to signal when there are 5 mins remaining

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty nice interview setting. I first had to talk to the HR one on one and she informed me about the general structure of the graduate program and what I should expect. Then i went to the real interview, with 2 people in the panel. It was a friendly conversational interview, lasted one hour. It was mostly behavioral and I got pretty good feedback about the company from the business manager interviewing me.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG in October 2016.

    Online assessment - verbal and numerical reasoning and SJT.
    Then 90 second voice recording to be uploaded.
    Then "launchpad" assessment day. - long day. Fair bit of hanging about with other applicants and networking. Day consisted of 30 min partner interview which was very straight forward, an observed group assessment and a personal timed report writing scenario.

    KPMG's new Launch Pad event, including a group case study, written test, and a partner interview. There are also many KPMG staff on the day, so you can also talk to them more about their experience with the firm. The result came out quickly, just 2 days after I attended the event.
