Apollo Global Management – Why Work With Us?


The Apollo Experience

Challenging You to Achieve

Work at Apollo and you’ll be pushed to achieve more than you ever thought possible. We are known for taking on the most complex challenges, and for growing our own success stories. You will thrive—if you have the courage and the capacity to take on the level of assignment that at other firms you would never see.

Expecting You to Share

At Apollo we rely on each other to succeed—and wherever you sit at the firm, that means you. We are a fully integrated business, so we talk to each other. When you share information and ideas at Apollo, you help us find the uncommon opportunities we’re known for.

Inviting You to Speak Up

From Day One at Apollo, you’re invited to join in—to bring your own point of view to discussions. We have a flat organization where the heat of discussion inspires us to find value for our investors. You’ll be working in an apprenticeship culture that builds your skills every day.

Making You One of Us

Even after 27 years, Apollo still feels like a small firm. Our people love to connect. In October, we transform every floor of our New York offices for our legendary Halloween event; in April we pull out all the stops for Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Because we believe in volunteerism, you’ll be invited and encouraged to join in our philanthropic partnerships. In 2015–2016, Apollo people volunteered over 12,000 hours for Change for Kids and other strategic charitable partners around the world. We focus on expanding educational opportunity and supporting the arts in the communities where we live and work.

Growing With Our Global Perspective

You’ll find that we partner across regions, as well as businesses, and we all share a global perspective. From any Apollo office you’re connected to six American offices, four in Europe and five in Asia. Apollo is a relatively small organization, but we can provide uncommon opportunities to our investors, thanks to our people around the world.

Explore Career Opportunities

Apollo offers talented people a variety of career opportunities in our different businesses and regions. You can search all our current openings by position, type of business, or location.

 

At Apollo we recognize veterans as an inspiration, and an opportunity. Veterans have shown us what strength and resilience can mean in service to our country. And they have skills, motivation and experience that add immeasurable value to an organization. Private equity funds managed by our affiliates invest in many companies that sign on to hire and retain veterans, Guard and Reserve, and military spouses and partners. The Apollo Veterans Initiative gives these companies, employing over 325,000 people, the encouragement and the tools to do so. In our own offices, the Apollo Veterans Affinity Network, chaired by our CFO of Private Equity and Marine Corps veteran Jim Crossen, helps drive our efforts. Apollo has been designated by GI Jobs as a Military Friendly® Employer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Apollo Global Management.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interviews with key stakeholders: lawyers in the legal department, the CFO of the REIT, the IR person, and HR. The wait time between rounds was a little longer than I expected.
