    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Valor Equity Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Private Equity exposure. Some nice people and a few nice company events every year.

    Cons

    Long hours (mgt expects you to work and be available 24/7), it's a "work-hard, no play" environment. CEO has a habit of firing staff just before the Christmas holidays - you don't know if you're meeting him to get your annual bonus or a pink slip!

    Advice to Management

    Embrace all your employees - be more inclusive and treat people fairly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Valor Equity Partners (Chicago, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I applied on-line and got a call the next afternoon. I guess it was a brief phone interview, she asked me about my experience and told me more about the job. She asked if I could come in early the next morning for a group interview. I thought it was a little weird to give me so little time to prepare, but they didn't seem to have any other time available. I met with three people the next day (they had told me I would be meeting with two). The first thing she told me was that the position I had applied for was an Recruiting Assistant, but they had changed it so it was actually a Receptionist and the only recruiting work I would be doing was data entry. However, they assured me that once the data entry was done and had put in some time, there was absolutely potential to move into recruiting. I thought had a good rapport with everyone and a good chance at the job, but a week later when I followed up with them, they told me they decided to offer it to someone else.

    Interview Questions

    • No really difficult questions. However, she did ask me a LOT about the circumstances of my previous jobs - how exactly I came into them, people's names, who do I keep in touch with, etc. I thought it was a little unusual.   Answer Question
