    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Warburg Pincus (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process was simple and straightforward. I had two interviews, one with the recruiter and one with a senior manager of the accounting department. They went over my resume and asked some basic behavioral questions. Be prepared to ask them questions about what you are interviewing for. Make sure you go over the typical interview questions and you should be fine. However, I don't know why I did not get the offer and they don't tend to say much.

    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Warburg Pincus.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very disengaged and had a predetermined decision in her mind prior to the interview. It was not a very comfortable interview and I think our personalities did not mesh well. I think the manager knew what she wanted in advance of the interview and did not really want to partake in the interview.
