    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group in February 2017.

    Interview

    Met at a college career fair, followed with an on-campus interview - half an hour coding, half an hour face-to-face.

    Interviewer didn't seem to engaged; they left the room as soon as the coding part started. I'm not sure why I had to take the test on paper at all. For the actual interview, they had no questions prepared for me.

    3 business days later, they let me know I didn't make the cut.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There were 4 interviews, each of half hour. The questions asked were straight forward and simple. One of the interview was a general talking interview, second was all about describing a project, and two others had technical questions.These are followed by a lunch round. All the interviews happen back to back with no break, and the process is over in roughly 2 and a half hour. I think they also look forward to you speaking a lot during the lunch round, probably that's what went wrong with me, this is despite the fact that they will tell you that the interview is over.

    Financial Reporting Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Quick and straight to the point. I was asked for my availability via email and brought in for an in person interview, no phone screen. The interviews were polite and brief with 2 members of the team. The interview was basic, as they were clearly looking for somebody with financial reporting experience and not so concerned with the fit questions, though they were asked. Afterwards, I got the feeling that an "intern" at BX is really somebody with full-time experience who is willing to briefly take a step backward in their career to sport the BX name on their resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic: story, strengths/weaknesses, resume walkthrough, previous financial reporting experience.   Answer Question
