    Tax Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    They have asked several questions like a quiz. I was unable to answer it before I need to write the questions down to figure the number, i was not prepared and obviously I didn't get an offer. But interview experience is more important to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter by circumstance, gave her my resume, and next thing I knew, I had in house interviews with the managers, senior manager, and partner. Overall, it was a very relaxing interview in house. It wasn't nerve wracking in the least. They made feel more so like a conversation. Granted, I was coming straight out of grad school so I couldn't really answer any technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a lot like a conversation. Why this particular position? What you like about this city? etc   1 Answer
