    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Event Manager Interview

    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.

    I was contacted via email by a recruiter within maybe less than a week of applying for the position online.

    Strategy Consulting MBA Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied off-campus for a summer internship from a part-time MBA program, but during the same timeline as the standard MBA internship recruiting cycle. They have several former part-time MBAs as consultants and had a nice process for us to get access to the firm. Apps were due in mid December and we got Interview invites in early- to mid-January. First round was in their Chicago office (part-time students can't utilize on-campus intern recruiting--school rule) and consisted of 2 45-minute interviews. Each interview involved maybe 10-15 minutes of behavioral/fit, and then a case. It was fairly straightforward. The cases weren't too hard and the interviewers were both very nice, although one of them started off pretty stern/serious before warming up near the end. I felt I did well and was surprised not to be invited back for Round 2. I talked to a few others who had the same experience. I spent a good amount of time networking and meeting consultants in the firm in the months leading up to the interview--almost everyone I met was extremely nice, helpful, and down-to-earth. I'd highly recommend KPMG Strategy and I will definitely be applying for a full-time position in the fall.
