I did the video interview a few days ago. Theres 40 questions, however no time limit, and absolutely zero numericals. There are two writing tasks, you have to write a report summarising the weaknesses of a firm from a report you are given. Also, you have to write an email advising a co-worker who accidentally sent out an email containing audit details of a firm to another firm on what to do. You have a 2,000 character limit.

There are 4 video interview questions, none of them are about yourself, all are linked to a context (you are working as an auditor). One of the video interview questions the company you are working for are saying they are worried because KPMG mostly helps big firms, and the firm is a small one so they ask you how KPMG can specifically help them
Thank you soooo much for your help, you're very kind!

Would you say that the writing tasks were fairly straightforward with the information you were provided, or were they quite complex?

Also, if there were only 4 videos, 2 written and 0 numerical, what sort of format were the rest of the questions?

Thanks so much again!

I varies from division to division. So you cannot really anticipate them. 2 of my questions were fit and 2 were related to the particular case study I had. Just do the assessment and get it over. There is nothing much you can do to prepare

For sure the writing tasks were extremely easy, theres no time limit so you really can't go wrong. In the report you have to make you are given all the info you need, its literally just having to summarise it and making it sound good.

The rest were just SJT's, so rank in order what you would do in this context, or move the slider bar to what how you react under pressure etc. I was surprised at the fact there was no numericals

I managed to find time to do mine today. The written questions were straightforward but the video responses went as bad as I could have expected. I'm just not a fan of that format - feels completely unnatural. The one with the 'new colleague' especially - probably sounded like I was making some awkward pass at her :banghead:

Not feeling good about this

omg the new colleague one had me killed.. I started saying we should go for a coffee I flopped it completely was talking pure crap.

I hate the ones where they put you in a context, I'm so used to talking about and selling myself in these video interviews so this one really caught me by surprise :/

Thank you so much for your response, it has made me feel much better! So strange that there are no numerical, though.

Has anyone progressed to the next stage yet (delivering outcomes online assessment)? My current application status still is "Transforming Small Businesses online assessment - Complete" and I completed it 6 weeks ago when they first opened and haven't heard anything yet... x
Me too! I did mine about 8 weeks ago and still nothing, maybe by the end of the week

I think I had that message coming up despite me being able to see myself clearly. I might have just ignored it and carried on regardless. It is finicky - numerous messages saying my head was not framed correctly, voice dropping out etc.

Would you mind telling us what the ‘new colleague’ question was?

I’ve seen a few people being caught out by this so any help would be appreciated!

You meet with a senior partner and the question is to introduce yourself in a way to ensure you maintain a strong working relationship

Thank you, very appreciated! Is there a time limit to the video questions and do you get time to prepare for them?

Yes, all the videos are timed. You have 2-3 minuets to prepare, and about the same time to respond. You can press 'stop recording' at any point when you are giving your answer, if you feel you have done enough.
