    Operations Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via a headhunter. Wasn't initially told the name of the firm. Learned it after initial, positive interview with headhunter. Then went in for a one-on-one with the person who I'd be working for. This person and I had previously worked at the same firm but didn't know each other. He was new at TPG and the role he was hiring for was new and not well defined. We spoke for about an hour. I never heard back from him. A few weeks later contacted the headhunter who said he'd liked me but decided to hold off on hiring anyone for 3-6 months. I also recommended a (well-qualified) friend for the position. He also interviewed and also never heard back.

    Interview Questions
    • He did most of the talking, which in itself might have been a test. I probably should've been more proactive/aggressive in terms of jumping in with thoughts on how I would help him solve the issues he was facing.   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at TPG in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was setup by Robert Half.

    There was no phone interview but the actual day had 4 interviews with 4 different people and believe me for 4 different positions. Each of the 4 people were managers in their respective departments and the idea was to interview me for 4 different positions (2 staff accountant positions and 2 financial analyst positions) and then figure out which role I am suitable too.

    I was pretty surprised for not getting a positive response because 2 out of 4 interviews looked really pleased and another one even told me right there that her answer would be a yes.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at TPG in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at TPG is a long one. It generally consists of 3 rounds of interviews and about a dozen people. A majority of the questions consist of personality and work ethic type questions. They are trying to find out if you are going to be a good fit within the team. They are more clever than most on how they determine if you actually know what you are talking about.
