Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in January 2013.

Interview

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).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Blackstone Group in February 2013.

    Interview

    Anecdotal, more about getting to know you and assessing company "fit," but a very thorough vetting process. First round is at school, second round is in NYC offices, and then if they want additional info they just arrange a video chat or Skype call. Some technical questions, but mostly about fit.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Purely behavioral for the IRDB summer analyst position. A few logic questions at super day but that's all. Three rounds, three days. Speaking with more senior managers as the process moves forward.
