    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Dallas, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There were recruiting events at my university throughout the semester where you got a chance to get to know people from the Dallas audit practice. There was a round of on-campus interviews, then office visits which included another round of interviews. The people are all so nice and really care about getting to know you.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    1. screener with hr team member from South Africa 2. hiring manager phone call 3. phone call with director of department. No opportunity to interview in person.
    Everyone I spoke to was fairly unfriendly and not conversational by any means. It was a bit uncomfortable at times as the interviewers seemed unprepared and not interested in learning anything about me outside of what was already on my resume. One hiring manager was yawning quite continuously, another did not have questions ready nor responded to anything I said so there were long pauses. I spent a lot of time preparing for the interview, felt I was on my game and very qualified for the role so it was a disappointing process. Waited about a month to hear back and was only given feedback that they were not continuing with me once I had reached out.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA).

    Interview

    Horrible experience. The recruiters are extremely unprofessional- they do not call you back after the interview so they can call you again for another round in the future if need be only to put a steady flow of people in front of management. Do not deal with senior associate recruiters or below.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG in April 2017.

    It was a phone screening interview, and the worst thing is when i email the recruiter asking about my application status, no one replies. I mean at least a company should let the candidate know whether he or she gets the job.
