    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Just had one of the worst interview experiences. Job posting was vague, and I thought, recruiter or phone screening with the hiring manager will clarify things about role/responsibilities. Recruiter was barely ever responsive, and did know nothing about the details about responsibilities etc. Finally, was scheduled for phone screening with 3 people and 1 didnt show up. One never said a word in the interview and the one who spoke the most asked very easy questions. Then I was shortlisted for in-person interview. The interview scheduling took 2 weeks, and again recruiter won't provide timely updates. During the interview, no one from the provided list of 4 showed up. Room had inadequate lighting, remote person could barely see anything from the whiteboard (actually glass,) and very easy questions were asked by the in-person people. They didnt even know who is the hiring manager, where will be the reporting site, and exact work responsibilities. It was a waste of all the time and efforts of 3-4 weeks.

    Interview

    Multiple levels of interview by several managers, employed more than 9-years by KPMG. Phone interview followed by personal interview, by some stupid managers, who nether master the art of development nor the management.

    Interview Questions

    • All technical to Microsoft.Net. This company is large and has solid customer base, by being blessed with big-4. The people and process has serious problem. The people take pride by paying Microsoft Consulting Services a hefty money, otherwise they are simply non-sense. All the best, if you succeed.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Strategy TMT division - 2 interviews - one with Partner (Samir Ajmera) and other with Director (David York). General overview questions, case study
    Both have NO experience in the TMT industry, dont know how they got there. Were very
    un-appreciative of industry experience I had and neither they had any Media nor Telco projects or even plans to grow.
    Worst division of KPMG and worst people to work with.
    Glad I didnt waste any more time with foolish folks

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Washington, DC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A KPMG recruiter found me on LinkedIn. I ended up going through 2 screening calls with recruiters, one 3-hour interview with multiple team members, and 2 final phone interviews before I received he offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Very straightforward questions. It was clear the team was looking for a cultural and personality fit. The fact that I made it past 2 phone screens meant I was obviously qualified to do the work.
      -Tell me about yourself.
      -What's your favorite part of your current job?
      -Talk to me more about XXXX [from my resume].   Answer Question

    Interview

    I was referred from a current employee and my resume was submitted to HR. I was contacted within the week to discuss my resume with an initial screener. We discussed where I wanted to take my career and what appealed to me, in terms of areas of interest and locations. She is forwarding my resume onto those areas of interest I am waiting to hear the next step.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Hoboken, NJ).

    Interview

    I had four interviews total, including the HR phone screen. Two were 2-3 hour panels that required me to travel on-site, about an hour away. In one, I couldn't get a word in, and the interviewer insulted someone else who was on the panel and who was also her direct report. After all that, no follow-up. Very unprofessional.

    Sorry about your negative experience during the interview process. Candidate care is very important to us and it is unacceptable that your recruiter did not follow up with you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Process was pretty basic in all. I interviewed once with a Managing Director and a Director but the job was put on hold for a few months. When the job was reopened I interviewed with a few Partners in the same day nothing too difficult just questions about my background and some behavioral questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I had 4 rounds - one with the business leader, then with the onshore leaders (pannel interview); then I met the business leader again and then finally HR (1 round face to face, 1 telephonic). Overall the interviews were engaging and I was asked questions regarding my subject. I also emailed few samples of past work to the business leader. I would recommend KPMG for anyone who wants a global exposure in career!
