    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fortress Investment Group (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter from this company after applying online through a job site. A few days after that initial call, I had an almost 2 hour, in depth interview in February 2017. I met with three different people with varying positions in the company. First, I met with a recruiter, then a mid-level Operations employee and finally, the Director of Operations. They all asked me similar questions about my experience so I'm not sure what the point of me meeting with all of them was. I felt like I was repeating myself over and over.

    This interview was almost 2 hours long. I sent a thank you note a few days after it took place and then a follow-up email a week later and heard absolutely nothing. I thought it was incredibly rude to take 2 hours of my time and then not even be able to send a rejection email my way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fortress Investment Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Friendly and engaging interviews with staff I would be working with, but HR seemed to be really disorganized and unnecessarily aggressive. I would have to say it was the worst HR experience ever. This is a very poor representation of the firm and thought about future interactions with HR during my potential employment. Fortunately, I turned down the offer. I believe the interviewee deserves mutual respect as much as their potential employer.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Fortress Investment Group (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through the Fortress website and was contacted by a recruiter. We spoke on the phone and then arranged a series of 4 video interviews via Google Hangout for the following week. On the day of the video interviews, I waited 20 minutes for the recruiter to connect. She did not have a camera (only one of the interviewers did), so I just looked at my own face on the screen for most of the time. The process was incredibly disorganized. Having worked under recruiters since graduating college, I was pretty appalled by how messy their pipeline and process are. It took weeks for them to follow up with me, by which point I had already taken another offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fortress Investment Group (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    First interviewed with HR and she was not very professional... looked down her head and started playing her hair while I was still talking. Not sure what went wrong during the conversation but the interview with the hiring manager was very brief and could tell that he was not interested in me. However, despite all these, I was asked to take the excel exam. Thank you letter was sent and never heard back from them at all which was exactly what I expected.
