Application

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

Interview

BX was my dream job. The process took 2 weeks. First round on campus, superday in NY office. Couple of fit, but mostly technical questions. It's really hard to get if you're not one of the top students at UPenn or Harvard. They only gave 3 offers to BREDS team and I didn't get it.

    Elections results on global real estate markets etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The overall process was very technical, I started woth three phone interviews then three video conference, and a math test.
    Basically every interview involves with at least one case study, either LBO or DCF. Then I was asked a lot of questions regarding my cv. Then some general questions like "what are the common valuation methods" "what are the pros and cons in each method" etc. Then some fit questions like why blackstone, why real estate, why London

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at The Blackstone Group (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Not very bureaucratic; both first- and final-round seemed very fit-oriented. That being said, there were certainly some technical elements and brainteasers thrown in, sometimes unexpectedly. Great group of people all around, really enjoyed getting to know all of them. Very fast turnaround from first-round to final-round (found out I got second-round same night of first interview, flown into NYC the next afternoon).

    Interview

    Anecdotal, more about getting to know you and assessing company "fit," but a very thorough vetting process. First round is at school, second round is in NYC offices, and then if they want additional info they just arrange a video chat or Skype call. Some technical questions, but mostly about fit.
