    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at KPMG in March 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a partner that was in charge of recruiting. The interview was around 30 mins. He mostly asked me questions about myself and how I got to where I am today. Much more relaxed than I thought. My best advice would be to be yourself and ask questions only if you genuinely want to talk about it. I got a call 5 days later saying I got the offer.

    Interview

    Very conversational interview, which I enjoyed. The interviewer was very easy to talk with and kept everything relaxed. They basically want to get to know you, and see if you can hold a conversation with them. Since they ask you to lead the second half of the interview, come prepared with questions to ask.

    Interview

    I was unexpected that there were around five KPMG professionals outside the interview room. I guess they were there to test if candidates were outgoing and can fit in their working environment. The interview process were went on well, the on campus recruiter and the audit manager were there to interview candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • Since it was an on campus interview, there was no unexpected question.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (Kansas City, MO) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I went through my schools online data base and came across this opportunity with KPMG. It's a 1.5 day leadership workshop where you learn more about the company and have the chance to network and establish solid contacts in the accounting and audit industry. Typically it's directed for uprising seniors, but I got accepted as an incoming junior.

    I submitted my resume through my school's online data base and heard about 1-2 days after the deadline that I got the interview. It was a 1:1 interview that consisted mainly of behavioral questions, nothing too serious. After talking to one of the Tax associates, I was contacted a couple days later that I got to final interviews. In my final interview I talked to the recruiting director herself and it was a very casual conversation. She asked me a couple more behavior questions, but it seemed like for the most part if you show enthuasiam and interest in getting into the industry, you'll get the position

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to deal with conflict between an employee or manager.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I would definitely take it! I wasn't that all interested in audit or tax but it was a great way to practice interviewing and networking with a large company.
