Private Equity Summer Analyst Positions

hey guys, i was wondering if anyone had a list of the MF PE firms that summer analysts (junior summer). i've seen summers at blackstone, KKR, and bain capital and i'm wondering if other firms have similar programs. i would also love to hear the types of interview questions the firms ask and how their interview processes are different from banking processes. thanks!

1) PE firms that take summers:

  • As mentioned, KKR, BX, Bain Cap
  • Also, Silver Lake, Vista, Ares, GTCR, and Fransisco Partners
  • If interested in Growth Equity/more sourcing,Insight and General Atlantic 
  • For full-time, Warburg and KKR growth hires analyst
  • A few other firm that I've heard of taking summers / analysts: Roark, LLR, BDT (now BDT & MSD), Apax

2) PE interview process:

The difficulty is on-par with boutique banking interviews. On top of the normal EB questions (merger math, etc) expect lots of paper LBOs, understand what factors impact an LBO the most, know basic MOIC to IRR conversions (ie 2x MOIC over 5 years = 15% IRR), and be ready to talk about why you want to do PE over banking. The process won't be much harder than a highly competitive boutique bank. I've seen a decent amount of questions asked by Fransisco Partners, Vista, BX, and KKR on overlevered.com, which I'm sure you'd find helpful. Good luck
