    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KPMG (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The first day consisting of a few speakers from the office and a panel of associates (all three or less years), and ending the day with a diner with partners at all levels and senior managers. Day two consisted of two half hour 'meet and greet's with recent hires that had similarities of schools or hometowns, alternated with two half hour interviews with senior managers.

    Regulatory Risk Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online through KPMG's website and through my University's career site. They asked me to interview and there was a meet and greet the night before hand. The employees were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I was interviewed by an employee that actually worked in regulator risk and the environment was very relaxed. All the questions were behavioral and if you know your resume you should do fine. I am still waiting to hear if I will be invited to the second round of interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG in September 2013.

    Interview

    Met through Meet The Firms Night at school. Instantly liked them the best of the Big 4 as they are extremely friendly and easy to get along with. They seem like really good people. Further met them again at an on-campus presentation they gave. Was selected for an on-campus interview a few weeks later with a pre-interview dinner event. Everything in their recruiting process was extremely smooth and well-organized in nature. Enjoyed my time mingling with all of their representatives. Interview went very well but as a Sophomore, was told to do Leadership Program instead. Will interview again next Fall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Typical campus interview process. Applied through our campus career website and scheduled for an interview. The whole process was as expected. Questions weren't too difficult, I advise everyone to check different career-related websites. Some of the questions I can remember are: "Tell me about yourself" "Why KPMG?" "Why this office?" "Why this service line?"
