    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Separately met with two managers and one partner. Each interview lasted for about 20-30 minutes. It was easy going and was mostly behavioral. As it was my first time applying for the job, I was nervous, however, overall the interview wasn't very challenging.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of behavioral and general questions. Like "who is your role model", "why do you want this job", and "how did you get into accounting" but minimum or none technical questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    There were 3 sessions in a day. Started off with a group presentation, followed by essay writing and finally group interview session with partner. The interview session was pretty laid back, sort of a chit chat type of interview. It's more about them getting to know you.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    1. an interview with an HR from South Africa
    2. a brief call with an HR in NYC
    3. A phone interview with a data scientist in NYC
    4, A phone interview with a data scientist in CA

    I am anxiously waiting for the result, which seems that I didn't win it. But the whole applying and interviewing process is pretty smooth. HRs are very responsible and they reply your emails very quick.

    Hope for the best

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn for a role within KPMG's cognitive automation lab as a Senior Associate. Sounded like an amazing opportunity. See below for the interviews I had:

    Round 1: 30 minute chat with Recruiter
    Round 2: 1 hour chat with KPMG Manager
    Round 3: 5 30 minute interviews on site in NYC
    Round 4: 30 minute chat with Senior Manager
    Round 5: 30 minute chat with another Manager

    After this it took KPMG 3 weeks to get back to me with a grammatically incorrect rejection note via email stating that my skill set was not a fit
