It was on plymetrics and it was pretty good. The games seem to be a good way to gage different qualities in people I would say. The video interview was also good.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group in May 2022

Interview

Over the course of about 3 hours, I was interviewed individually by three men who worked in FP&A. You should look up private equity deals ahead of time in case they ask you. All I could think of were spanx and ancestry and I didn’t have much to say about them. One of the interviewers did cancel during the interview I was in with his coworker which was kind of rude. His interview was the worst. He said I’ve only been here a few months (I was wondering why he was interviewing me, then?) and as an interview tactic, he told me that everyone here works until 10 or 11 PM on a good day, and he also misstated the hybrid policy as 4 days in office when it is in fact three according to his colleagues. He did also take time to look down on people who like to work 9-5 and insinuated that I would not be successful at Blackrock if I wanted to stick to 8 hours per day, and if that was the case, I should apply at Citi. But he did have bags under his eyes, so maybe he really was working until 10 or 11 each day. Who knows? I was glad I wouldn’t have to work with him when they rejected me for being unprepared for the interview. I will say the other two employees, VP and AVP were lovely and actually asked me questions about my experience in FP&A, although they did seem hung up on the fact that I did not have direct reports at my last role, so be ready to offer some alternative experience managing people if that applies to you.

Interview Questions
  • Do you have direct reports? Are you willing to come into the office 4 days per week? Are you willing to work in office four days per week? What did you do at your old role?

Few rounds of interviews, mix of behavioral and technical; smart, nice people. Judged based on merit of application and interviews, not based on obsequious and shallow networking like investment banking.
