The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in June 2008.

Interview Details After submitting my online application, I got a phone call from the HR department. We agreed on an interview the next week. The interview mainly consisted of small talk, there was no such thing as a case study or elaborate questions on my professional background. I got the offer for an internship right after the interview.

Dallas, TX (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at KPMG US in April 2014.

Interview Details Met recruiters at career fair and applied online at KPMG's site. Received an on-campus interview and was invited to a pre-interview dinner the night before. Met very outgoing, personable KPMG professionals. On-campus interview was for 30 minutes with a partner of the Dallas office. Felt more like a conversation and less like an interview. Head back within a week or so with an offer to visit the office. Between the interview and the office visit, there were several social outings with the company where I met more professionals from the Dallas office and some current interns.

Moscow (Russia)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at KPMG US in August 2011.

Interview Details Interview process for Intern position in audit department is quite simple and straightforward. You need to be prepared for standard fit questions in the first round interview with HR and simple accounting questions in the second (with department representative). There is a huge need in additional hands during busy season and general requirements are not strong enough thus you have to be hired if you really want to.

Interview Question – Tell the name of some accounts in Russian Accounting Standards   Answer Question
