    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview

    Phone interview with in house recruiter, phone interview with a manager at KPMG, then in person interview with 4 individuals. One interview was a technical interview with an MIT graduate that was very intense.

    Interview Questions

    • The technical interview was very hard. The interviewer had me walk him through several recent cases and the damage analysis that I performed. He continually cut me off when trying to elaborate and seemed very dismissive.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Timing wasn't right - they offered me the job 6 months after the interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview

    I interviewed with five people on two separate occasions. They were mainly interested in my background and most questions focused on my experience. There was very little discussion of specific clients and work tasks or who I might be working for. While the interviews were not perfunctory, neither did it seem as if they were very concerned, as if they were going through the motions.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviews did not contain any difficult questions. They were very poultice, short conversations.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview

    Most interviews I've ever gone through in my life. Some fairly technical questions that were project specific. They were very interested in my customer service skills almost as much at my experience in my field of expertise.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary. I was well prepared as it was right in my current line of work but in many ways easier that what I was already doing. The biggest surprise was the number of people in the group interview, quite a few.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Their initial offer was low so I didn't accept. They came back with a counter but it wasn't enough either. I was in negotiations with another company that in retrospect I should have went with but didn't at the time as it was more travel than I wanted. I told them to match that offer and I'd accept. They matched the offer and I was brought on board.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Submitted application on line. A week later, a KPMG recruiter contacted me. Here are the interviews and time line.

    1. phone call with recruiter
    2. phone call with director
    3. on-site with two associate directors
    4. phone call with another director
    5. phone call with principal
    6. phone call with partner

    Whole process took a bit longer than expected due to finding the right time to talk to the partner. The recruiter was very attentive. Though there was a bit of miscommunication between the partner and the recruiter. Eventually that was sorted out and I was offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiated with a different start date and higher compensation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at KPMG US in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process has consisted of the following: First a call with an experienced hire recruiter. I was then scheduled for a phone interview with a director. After that, I had a phone interview with a Practice Partner. I was then flown in to their offices for face to face interviews with the same Practice Partner and two other directors. I contacted the experienced hire recruiter a week after the interviews for a status. The company likes my skills and experience but have not yet made an offer. A week later the experience hire recruiter emailed and said they are waiting for a new client to sign before they can hire me... This process has been ongoing for over three months. I am excited to start but the time is starting to take a toll on me.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were straight forward about the industry and my experiences. Some of the questions were blunt... "so tell me what you can do for me" was the first one from one of the interviewers.   Answer Question
