    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TPG (Fort Worth, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Three phone interviews: one with a Senior Manager in Treasury, one with a Director in Accounting, one with a Director in HR. After three they flew me. Next day was was interviews between 10am and 3pm. One on One with lots of managers, sr managers, directors, and managing directors. Very conversational aside from a few pointed questions about technical skills. Then had quick excel test which involved joining two days of bank account data and making pivot tables. Day closed with a 2 v 1 interview with an associate and a manager at Starbucks. Overall, it was a good process. Very intelligent people at a great company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TPG.

    Interview

    Meeting with too much people is so unnecessary to determine if I am right for the job. Skills should speak for it self. I thought it was just tedious to meet with 10 people to make a decision. It should have been a conference then.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't really ask anything...more conversational about my past experiences.   Answer Question

    Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at TPG in January 2017.

    Interview

    Unecessarily long and cumbersome. It started with a 2 hour phone interview, then they invite you for an in person to meet with the hiring manager which took another 2.5 hours. They give you a case study that gets completed in 4 hours followed by another round of interview that lasts 5 hours. As far as I'm concerned, they have a terrible culture which shows in their terrible hiring process. There is no way you can gauge if an employee would be great or not till they begin doing the job.

    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.

    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.

    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.
