    Hi!

    I have a first interview coming up with KPMG this week, and I wondered if they re-imburse any travel costs? Normally if it is £5 or less I don't bother, but since this is for a regional office, it's going to be like £18 if it is calculated at 15p/mile (I am going to drive).

    Thanks for any help

    ...and get a VAT receipt, just in case.

    Incidentally, why 15p per mile? 40p is the standard (governement-approved) rate>

    Because last week I was at the PwC RISC course, and they were re-imbursing at 15p/mile:o:

    So I have to fill up with petrol before I start my journey, and then come back and fill up again and send them the receipt... lol... bit weird to be honest:mad:

    Ooh dear, you got a raw deal there. They pay 40p per mile for interns/staff. Maybe it's different for non-staff?

    Little harsh, trains aren't always cheap. But yes, that's how I avoided having to even worry about what they reimburse per mile.

    No it wouldn't. It would cost more. Probably the same as the petrol if not more. Petrol was approx £15?

    "Tight" bugger....? I don't always claim back. Like Deloitte was about £5 travelling. The person said even though it is £5, claim it, but I still didn't claim.

    For your information, it would cost £5.40 [off peak travel card- cheaper than single tickets] for me to get into Central London, and then on top I would have to take the train!

    Anyway, I got an email saying they want more days to make a decision Gotta wait I guess.....

    and you cant invest £5-10 in going for an interview at one of the biggest accountancy firms.

    deloitte was £5 and you didnt claim back clearly something must have been wrong there !!! have you ever had a girlfriend before ? wat are you gonna do when you want a nice meal together go to tesco and get a microwave buy 1 get 1 free

    and i bet that was because you couldnt claim it back

    put your hand in your pocket and stop moaning about your £5 lost expenses, if money was that tight you wouldnt be driving around in a car

    You got some problem, or are a son of some rich person!

    £5-10 PER interview for EVERY firm you interview for? I applied for 7 companies, and I should pay around £50 from what you are saying?

    No I could have claimed back at Deloitte- I was asked 2-3 times by my interviewer if I wanted to claim, she said even it is a small amount, claim it, but I declined.

    The way I see it, I should have actually claimed back the £5. I mean, technically it is "free money"- yes I paid for it, but if I don't claim it then I would lose it, hence the notion "free money".

    By your attitude, it seems you an investment banker/trader. You should definately know about "arbitrage" then. But I bet you wouldn't say anything like this to one of them.

    Anyway, I don't want to talk about this matter any more, since it isn't worth it. You can continue your insults all you want.

    edit: I forgot to add, I was rejected by KPMG- if you want to throw more insults regarding that then be my guest.

    Free money basically. Buying from X for £1, and selling to Y for £1.10 IMMEDIATELY due to the differences in the rates of the companies/currencies etc:o:

    I was rejected after the first interview, but I don't agree with the feedback given. Oh well, doesn't matter now.

    1. Online form
    2. Online tests
    3. First interview
    4. [not sure] But E-tray and Partner interview I imagine.

    If you have got to the e-tray, that means you are clearly very clever for passing those INSANE online tests, and you have passed the first interview which must be VERY hard to pass- speaking from my experience. So you are a VERY good candidate. I would advise you to practise the e-tray, but since I have never done one, I don't know exactly how it goes:o:

    I am in my third/final year, and got an offer from PwC for Audit on Friday (21/11) which I am going to accept.

    Thanks. I have no idea about KPMG internship apps. I applied for it last year, and couldn't pass the online tests looool.

    P.S. I meant (21/11), not (21/10):p:

    nope not a trader,
    yep tired of hearing you winge about £5
    how have you come to that conclusion anyway i bet its less than £5 breakdown please
    maybe it was a trap - if you claim your £5 expenses your obviously a boring ****
