    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I had a great experience with the on-site interview. It was three back-to-back 30-minute interview with a lunch at the end with KPMG associates and managers. It might sound overwhelming but if you actually make a good conversation out of the interview they wouldn't seem long at all. All behavioral questions and nothing you can't prepare for.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The recruitment team was very informative and the initial screening was rapid. I interviewed with 2 recruiters via phone, a team member via Skype and the hiring manager via phone and in-person. The process was a bit exhausting and time consuming for the number of interviews. I understand KPMG wants to ensure the candidate is the right fit.
