    The interview process had two rounds. First round consisted of two 30-minute interviews (mix of behavioral and technical) and the second round consisted of four 45-minute interviews: behavioral, two technical and case. In every interview, the last ~10 minute were allocated to ask questions so make sure you have them prepared (PE guides give a good range of questions you can ask).

    On the behavioral side, the questions seemed straightforward, with the interviewer stressing to use the word “I” rather than “we” to showcase your individual contributions. Questions included:
    Tell me about a time when you had to implement a new procedure or processes.
    Tell me about a time when you worked in a team to complete a goal.
    Tell me about a time when you mediated a conflict.
    Tell me about a time when you performed over and beyond what was required.

    On the technical side, first round interviews required you to value either a restaurant or a stand-alone branch of a popular coffee chain in a popular location. You had to estimate the P&L, then state how much you would pay for this, how much debt would you put on the company and then what would be your IRR. I would recommend being aware of both EBITDA / Net income % in key industries as well as multiples paid to answer these types of questions well.

    In addition, first round asked basic PE questions: why PE companies use EV / EBITDA, why some companies with the same EBITDA and Revenues in the same industry trade at different multiples.

    Second round, was much harder and the interviewers appeared less friendly and significantly less enthusiastic about interviewing you. Questions included:
    Why investing?
    What do you do in your free time that showcases your interest in PE?
    What would you recommend we invest in?
    Tell me about [name of a nascent industry / product]. What do you think about it?
    Imagine we got an offer from a banker to invest in a specialty retailer. What data would you look at? What questions would you ask your consultant / banker on the deal?

    The case was sent via e-mail and you had 48 hours to create a presentation and the model. The times when you were sent the case were not flexible.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I Applied online after publication of job opportunity on my university site. At the third appointement they managed to call me at the time they set. The interviewer was however very kind. The questions were very standard, basically on motivations and on the activity of their company. The overall recruiting process was very fast that is positive after all.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied through my graduate school's career website and had two interviews with senior portfolio managers in the External Portfolio Management group. Both were positive and not too technical. However, in the last interview there arose an issue regarding visa: as I was not a UK national and did not have a UK working visa, they said they could not sponsor one for a non-Canadian. After that, I was informed that my application had been declined (about a week or two after that interview).

    First round interview was pretty informal review of resume and experiences. Second round interview was a case study, followed by an interview with HR and another senior manager from the Division. I found the interview process pretty standard, with one behavioral interview.

    Interview process consisted of a case review with investment professionals from CPPIB. Upon completing the case study, the Portfolio Manager of the team was extremely unprofessional. Spent the entire interview looking at his phone and not paying attention, while making some inappropriate comments. Second individual of the team was much more courteous and engaged. Final decision was not given in a timely manner.

    Professional, thorough but not hostile. They ask a lot of questions to determine if you have experience with what they consider necessary for the role, but they don't come across as interogative.
