American Industrial Partners

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI

Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Industrial Partners (Detroit, MI) in Nov 2016


You don't actually interview for AIP, instead you interview for one of their Portfolio Companies. They had two interviews on campus, after which they would decide whether or not to bring you to Detroit to interview you again. After that, if some of the companies liked you they would reach out to you again. As such the process is very long and without guarantee of employment. And you won't even know which Portfolio companies you are interviewing for until you get to Detroit.

Average Interview

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at American Industrial Partners (Detroit, MI)


I interviewed with American Industrial Partners in Fall of 2015 The interview consisted of 3 stages: First stage is a 1on1 interview with some human resource representatives from AIP. The questions they ask are your general get to know you questions and a bit about your background and why you're interested. *Important note* When you are applying for AIP, you are not applying to work for AIP, you are applying to work for the portfolio companies that partner with AIP. Second Stage is a more in depth interview with representatives from AIP and representatives from the companies partnered with AIP. This interview is to get to know more in depth about how your experiences fit with the companies, so be prepared to get a lot of questions regarding your experiences and why it led you to choose AIP. Third Stage is where they fly you out to a hosting location where all the companies partnered with AIP come together to interview applicants. AIP hands your resume and information to their partnered companies so upon arrival you get a schedule of the companies that are interested in meeting with you for an interview. The whole interview process was very well put together but everything else is pretty horrible. Communication is probably the biggest problem they have. It takes weeks before they get back to you. In addition, there is a lot of miscommunication that goes on, so don't be surprised if they say one thing and then go back on their word.

Interview Tips

Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


Got booted from my former position about 4 years ago, which I LOVED. I have the impression I was "kept" in sympathy. Now that I have my feet beneath me, I feel like I'm running in place. Over the past 2 years, I've probably applied for about 100 positions in other departments. True, a few were unlikely moonshots, but for the most part I didn't misrepresent myself. Am I the world's worst interviewer? Otherwise.. shouldn't I have been accepted elsewhere, by choice?


Administrative Assistant

I haven't worked since Jan. 2020 when my job as administrative assistant for the Hospitalist group was eliminated. I can't begin to count the number of applications submitted, interviews I've had, jobs that I was told were mine then they weren't, etc. Several jobs have fallen through or not panned out. I am not a job hopper and want to stay where I go. I have a zoom interview tomorrow for a front desk receptionist position at an oral surgeon's office. Any interview tips are appreciated.



Hey all, I’m looking for advice on program manager hypothetical interviews such as: “what would you do if X happened?” Is there a particular thing or core value that Bloomberg looks for? Thanks!
