Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at The Blackstone Group in January 2013.

Interview Details – Not very bureaucratic; both first- and final-round seemed very fit-oriented. That being said, there were certainly some technical elements and brainteasers thrown in, sometimes unexpectedly. Great group of people all around, really enjoyed getting to know all of them. Very fast turnaround from first-round to final-round (found out I got second-round same night of first interview, flown into NYC the next afternoon).

Interview Question – Asked about the cash-on-cash of an investment   Answer Question
