IT Advisory Interview

Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Columbus, OH) in April 2016.

Interview

The interview process overall was quick and painless. I had the opportunity to meet on-campus to interview with a recruiter. The interview was straightforward behavioral and consisted of a lot of discussion. I felt the main purpose of this interview was to understand how you hold a conversation and to understand your personality.

My next interview was at the office in Columbus, OH. I arrived at the office and was first taken out to a nice lunch with two associates. The lunch went well and the food was great! It consisted of talking about who I am, about what they each do at the company. Again, I felt this was a way for them to get a feel about my personality and who I am. Following the lunch I interviewed with the Managing Director and Advisory Manager. Both interviews were talking about what my interests are, what I know about the practice, and personality.

Overall I had a great experience interviewing at the company. I was able to learn a lot about the practice and how well KPMG takes care of their employees. The associates I had lunch with gave a good view of what it would be like and they truly enjoyed their work. I look forward to being able to work with them this summer.

My suggesting before coming into the interview would be to read up on the company and have a firm understanding of your practice. Then think of ways that your experience applies and try to them into the conversation as good points. The recruiter is trying to get to know you and if you would actually fit in, so go the extra mile to help them.

Negotiation

This is an internship, you really don't have any leverage for an offer. They already pay top-dollar anyways.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    This process has taken far too long. It has been 4 weeks since my 3rd phone interview and no one seems to care to email me back. I must have bombed the phone interview but I mean just tell a guy he isn't the right fit for the company. Not a fun process to be a part of.
