Interview Question – no hard questions, just need to be honest. If you can not answer the question just state that, they will see through you if you make up answers due to pressure. Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US.
Interview Details First stage was an aptitude test which included algebra and verbal and logical reasoning. Second stage was a group interview. Third stage was one on one interview with a Senior Associate and the final stage was meeting a business partner.
Interview Question – My unexpected question was when I'm asked how much I expect from the position Answer Question
Tax Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in October 2013.
Interview Details 1st interview was behavioural based and quite generic. 2nd interview really depends on the partner and managers you get paired up with. Expect the typical questions such as why kpmg, why tax, why cpa, tell me about yourself. My interviewers went over my resume and asked questions here and there.
Interview Question – Why KPMG, why tax, why CPA. Answer Question
Staff Accountant Interview (Neutral Experience)

Senior Global Marketing Role Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in January 2013.
Interview Details Had a screening interview with a recruiter, then in-person with the same recruiter. Recruiter was slick, misleading and overly promising. Met two of the global marketing leads and had positive conversations with both. KPMG ended up promoting an internal person into the role.
Interview Question – None. Everything was straightforward. Answer Question
Marketing Specialist Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US.
Interview Details Had one of the worst experience in the history of phone interviews. Was initially considered for the same role and made it to the last round, however this time around had a bad experience with the HR contact. She told me a date and time to call and then didn't pick up. Responded an hour later and said she was having a busy morning and I should call back at another date. In the second attempt, she sounded extremely uninterested even before the first question. She was also typing so loudly that it was distracting to answer.
Interview Question – Basic questions - Walk through your resume, Why KPMG, Elaborate on your present position. Answer Question
Tax Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)

Interview Question – No unexpected questions, you just need to be able to carry the conversation and look interested. Answer Question
