    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Miami, FL) in March 2017.

    For the second round I was flown out to the Miami Office. I was interviewed by three managers, each lasting about half an hour. Two were very friendly and casual, but one asked many technical questions and was uptight.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter by circumstance, gave her my resume, and next thing I knew, I had in house interviews with the managers, senior manager, and partner. Overall, it was a very relaxing interview in house. It wasn't nerve wracking in the least. They made feel more so like a conversation. Granted, I was coming straight out of grad school so I couldn't really answer any technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a lot like a conversation. Why this particular position? What you like about this city? etc   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at KPMG in October 2016.

    Interview

    My interviewer spent 7 minutes talking about himself and then asked me to introduce myself.
    After that, he asked 4 random questions from a question list.
    All the questions were irrelevant to one another.
    In the final Q&A part, my interviewer was excited again, because he finally got a chance to talk about himself again.

    Interview

    Great interview process. They did all the interviews on campus and we were invited for "Inside Look". Very smooth in terms on handling and communicating with all the candidates. I believe some process vary between the type of candidate you are and the position you are applying for . But overall the process couldn't be any smoother .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Had an on campus interview. When I walked into the career center, there were two KPMG employees who were greeting and talking with interviewees before they were called in. The interview itself was pretty standard. I met with a tax manager, who asked questions about my resume and a then a few behaviorals. The interview started and ended on time, and I was told to wait about two weeks. I followed up after the interview, but didn't hear anything within the two week period. I sent a message asking when I would hear back and was told it would be shortly. I got a message back the next day from the automated email with the rejection statement.

    Overall it was a pretty easy and normal interview process. The only negative thing I could say would be that they didn't get back to me within the time period they said they would.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions about challenges you faced, how you work in a team, etc.

      Pretty standard questions.
