    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    Straightforward interview - all behavioral questions. Applied on campus portal and was able to schedule interview on campus within a few weeks. Networking is important to get them to notice you. Know what functions fall under EVS. I've heard of some people getting technical questions, but I didn't get any.

    Consultant Interview

    Interview

    It was a long process that took a while. I interviewed with the recruiter, manager, and another teammate. It was intimidating and not well structured. More like a random conversation with a few behavioral questions thrown in

    Interview

    They were very friendly and kind in the interview. Were not so concerned about perfect interview answers as much as really getting to know me. I felt valued as a person, rather than just a resume they were looking at.

    Interview

    Long. 2 months. Basic questions but slow process. Can take up to 6 months depending on the position. In person interviews are followed by more in person interviews, meeting different employees at each level of seniority. HR is last and gave a below average salary

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I was abroad in the fall, during all the big interviews for a summer internship. Believe me, that was a risk, although I used it to my advantage. You know when recruiters come to your school and you don't know what to say, but you still want to introduce yourself? In the spring recruitment events before the fall interview season, I made sure to tell the recruiter that I'm interested in the internship, but I'm hoping that my time abroad wouldn't negatively impact my ability to apply. Pretty much every time I asked (any of the big 4) they told me I could still apply, and they would either interview me abroad, even offered for me to come to the office on an individual tour and early interview in the summer because they didn't think going abroad should be a reason to disqualify me. They always gave me their email and instead of saying "feel free to keep in touch," I was told "shoot me an email and remind me about your internship. I'll make sure you can still interview, that shouldn't be a problem." And instantly, you have something for them to remember you by, and a problem to work on that will lead to multiple exchanges.

    I had two interviews via skype for business, and each was a half hour, but at 1:00 am where I was. Both of my interviewers were extremely relaxed, each began with a quick question about how my abroad session is going or what time it is for me, then they told me about the company and their own journey with the company, and then asked me two "real" questions, and if I had any questions for them.

    Of all the firms I interviewed with, I thought this was the most conversational, the most considerate in easing into the interview questions naturally, and I learned the most about my interviewers.
