    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TPG (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Process was relatively straightforward. Met with several people in multiple groups to get a feel for office then after I narrowed down the group I wanted to work with, I spent more time with other employees there. Questions were thoughtful about macroeconomics and theory but also focused on personality.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TPG (Dallas, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Referred internally. Very conversational. A lot of fit questions. They were very interested in my excel skills. Most of the time was spent with them telling me about the different funds and structures, and how their team collaborated with the rest of the business. It was all very interesting and informative, but I ultimately decided to decline the offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TPG (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very nice people, a lot about background and interest and a "super day" of sorts. Definitely not structured like a management consulting interview but you definitely had to be on point with these guys--they're very sharp.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TPG (San Francisco, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a recruiter first, then took a test at TPG. Once I passed the test, I had an interview with the woman who would be my manager. I didn't find the test difficult, it all seemed like basic common sense. If you couldn't answer the questions you probably haven't been an EA. Overall experience was professional. They seem to hire exclusively through recruiters so you do have a liaison working for you.

    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    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
