    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    The overall atmosphere was very pleasant. I was interviewed by two Partners, first in German and then in English as they wanted to evaluate my language level. They asked me a few brain teaser questions and the usual ones: why this job, why this company and so on. I got the job offer 30 minutes after the interview was over.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at KPMG (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    HR was completely unprofessional. Was booked for a super day where the interviewers never showed up. Eventually had three generic interviews from consultants outside of my subject matter expertise.

    Eventually got an offer, but salary package was not in line. Waste of time. What is the point of HR?

    Felt like I took a time machine 15 years ago.....

    Interview Questions

    • No case study questions. Just general questions on past work experience. One fluffy question on improving revenue.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Interview time is usually later in the day around 5 or 6pm after work. You are put into a waiting room full of other applicants and there are reps from KPMG to welcome you and help you answer any questions beforehand. You are called in groups and put into a private room for 3 rounds of one on one interviews 30 minutes each. If you are not selected they will only offer you 2 interviews and cut it short.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    Unorganized, last minute interview process. Even though I made through the final interview, their business demand has been so slow that there has been a hold on the hiring decision. The reimbursement for the interview expense has been a pain since they utilize the third party vendor. The SSN and DOB were wrong, somehow, and I haven't still been able to activate the reimbursement debit card..

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was smooth. A recruiter contacted me on LinkedIn and did initial screening for a Specialist role in Cyber Security Transformation team. It was followed by 2 phone interviews and an onsite interview of 30 minutes with two directors. HR emailed me same day about the feedback from onsite interviews and called me next day to discuss offer.
