    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a pleasant interview process. It started on-time where around 9-10 people take turns to be called into a room for the 1-1 interview. The lady who interviewed me is very nice and friendly. If feels like a casual conversation instead of interview. I was nervous at first but the lady told me not to and I do feel more comfortable after that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Generally the interview process was quite standard compared to the other interview I had attended. Firstly, I have received a phone call from the HR, some standard questions had been asked. Then, I was asked to complete an online assessment which comprised some problem solving question and maths questions. Basically, they are testing on the accuracy so i have not finished all the questions given. Anyway I have passed the assessment and being invited for an interview on the HQ office. The interview was handled by one manager and one assistant manager. Generally it was relaxing. They did not tested on the technical skills at all, it was like a simple chit chatting. I would say it was fun and relax.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After the basic online assessment, i was called for a group interview. In the group interview session(5 in a group), we were given a case study to be presented to the interviewer. It then carried on with individual interview and simple essay writting.

    It is best not to be too ambitious and proud of your achievements. Show them you are very keen to learn. Seems like they do not value creative candidates but a plain piece of paper to print whatever they want on it
