    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY).

    Interview

    KPMG has a professional organized interview process. The internal recruiter outlined the entire interview process to me over the phone and confirmed everything with me before to my phone and onsite interviews. My phone interview was a 30 minute discussion with the hiring manager. My onsite interview was with the hiring manager and another manager in the IT organization.

    Regulatory Enforcement & Compliance Advisory Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by an employee and was invited for an office visit right away. Interviewed with 2 Directors and interacted with several other associates and senior associates. Interviews were behavioral and they really just wanted to know about me. Fit is big for them. The practice took us out to lunch afterwards and it was an overall very positive experience. Only reason I declined the offer was because I got another offer that was better for me personally. But I would recommend KPMG to anyone.
