Summer Leadership Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at KPMG (Houston, TX) in March 2017.

Interview

I applied online two months prior to the interview. I got an email a week before my interview to schedule my interview slot and invite me to the Pre-Interview Dinner, which was a day before the interview. The Pre-Interview Dinner was very casual, just getting to know professionals. I was seated with 4 other students and 2 professionals, which luckily were the campus recruiters. One of the campus recruiters I sat with was my interviewer. The interview was very conversational, mostly behavioral questions. Overall, very easy interview, just trying to get to know who you are.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview with 2 seniors at KPMG (1 partner, 1 senior manager). The interview was very casual, and you can tell that they were more focused on getting to know you better as a person. They went through my resume and asked me to elaborate on one or two things things that I was the most passionate about. No tricky questions, and they really encourage you to ask them questions in the end.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Irvine, CA) in May 2015.

    The interview process was fairly easy. My interviewer simply overlooked my resume and asked me questions pertaining to my resume. Additionally, regular behavioral questions were asked aiming to see how I would react in certain given situations. In addition we talked about various global topics such as travel and the economy.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I did a lot of on campus networking, or went to networking events through on campus organizations. First round interviews are done on campus. My interview was very relaxed because I happened to know the interviewer. For these particular interviews, it helps to know the interviewer or at least get a sense of their personality. That way you can try to connect and have a more casual conversation where they essentially forget to ask behavioral questions. You have to remember they are trying to get an honest perception of you to see if you fit the firm and if they would be able to work with someone like you for a whole day. You may or may not be invited to second rounds that are held in the actual office.

    Interview Questions

    • Just remember that anything on your resume is fair game. So try to have a story/experience for everything on there and a lesson you got from it. Do not try to "fluff" or exaggerate on your resume too much because you can potentially get called out for it!   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had to go back and forth between coasts to get to different summer leadership programs, so I had to be selective and choose only a few to attend. Also had an internship so I could not take so many days off if I attended all SLP's

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG in March 2014.

    Interview

    There was a dinner before which was nice and we were seated with a partner who had been helpful with our nerves. During my interview I was interviewed by a different partner. The entire time he was interviewing me he avoided conversation and instead of being interviewed I felt I was being integrated. The partner was not very nice and gave me an extremely bad perception of the firm. Instead of making me feel comfortable like every other firm I was nervous and couldn't be myself.
