    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I used a staffing agency, Ladders for Leaders. They provided me with a recommendation a GIANT foot in the door. As for the actual interview process, all I had to do was go through a phone interview. The SVP of Talent Development asked me questions about my resume and what leadership roles I possessed in college and before. The interview was very short and I received confirmation about a week later.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I sent in my application and within a few days I got an email to come in for an interview. The second I stepped into the interview, I was handed a paper test of programming questions to write out. There were four questions:
    1) I had to make my own version of Integer.parseInt(string) that would be able to work on any base
    2) I had to do 4 queries on a set of tables and then explain what made these tables good and what made them bad.
    3) I had to make a function with time complexity O(n) that determines what elements are in one array and not in the other
    4) I had to make an XML parser
    I was given 30 minutes to complete these questions. After the test, I spoke with two individuals and they analyzed each piece of my resume asking very detailed questions about things I have done many months to years ago.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was not any different from any other intern-like interview. Discuss your skills, why Blackstone, discussion of what a typical day-to-day at the firm looks like, etc. Also, they were interested in what questions I had about the firm and this particular department.

    Interview

    I was sat down in a room and had six different people interview me. Each one had technical questions to ask me, mainly on DCF. Had to go in depth with each element of the DCF from FCF to WACC and APV etc. Pretty rough.
