Do you know what team it's for and did you get invited to the networking day as well? I'm west coast so I wonder if it was only for east coast schools

OP from the interview topic, it was basically this hirevue type thing I had to finish through pymetrics though I never got an invite to their networking event (which were sent out like the morning after the interview) so I don't know what's going on

Jul 28, 2021 - 7:40pm

I got the pre-recorded interview invite on Monday for Infra. and an email from HR about it. Never got an invite to the networking event tho.

Just got the PE hirevue for FT AN 2022 (48hrs to complete). Anyone have a sense of what to expect? Saw above that someone who did the HireVue for Infra just got generic behaviorals. Should I expect the same thing or technicals as well?

Aug 5, 2021 - 1:14am

I also applied to PE and just got an invite for this Pymetrics interview. The email said to prepare some deal knowledge so assuming it's not just behavior. What kind of questions did you get?

So are they sending out Hirevues now for FT? What about first round phone calls? Are they doing multiple rounds or are you already dinged if you haven't heard by now?

Yes I just got a HireVue today for FT but I didn't get the networking event invite. HireVues could roll out depending on when you applied

0 networking and did not get an invite to the networking event, got the hirevue. I heard it used to be networking based but it looks like no longer

Curious about the update - OP what's your source that SD's will be done by August 9th? Does it go from the HireVue straight to SD?

  • Intern in IB - CB
Aug 1, 2021 - 3:22pm

When did you get the HireVue? Like after completing the Pymetrics?

Aug 1, 2021 - 4:14pm

I got two hirevues (by hirevue I mean Pymetrics one way interview) for different sections of PE the day after the networking event. Has anyone gotten the first-round zoom?

Guys so everyone got a pymetrics one way right? not a literal hirevue? I got a NAMER interview like a week ago but I have no clue what application it's for...

This is what I got as well - haven't heard anything back yet

  • Intern in PE - LBOs

just got another namer pymetrics/hirevue 1 way interview, no clue what div for though...

  • Intern in PE - LBOs
Aug 3, 2021 - 10:28am

Nah I got another namer, so basically a second 1st round. You only need to do namer once like the pymetric games 

  • Intern in IB - Gen
Aug 2, 2021 - 10:02pm

What is the NAMER interview, is there a way to find out for what division it is? Or does it not matter anyway for the pymetrics interview

  • Incoming Analyst in IB-M&A
Aug 3, 2021 - 2:02am

Basically like a hirevue - it was 4-5 behaviorals, pretty straightforward. Mine just said PE, no specific group or anything. Others may have been different

  • Intern in PE - LBOs
Aug 3, 2021 - 12:33pm

I've gotten two seperate namers but neither mentioned which team it was for

  • Intern in PE - LBOs
Aug 3, 2021 - 4:44pm

do y'all think it's a good idea to email HR if we got a namer but no group specification? Wanna know which app I should prepare further for...

Does anyone know how many first rounds are usually given out? What's the conversion % between first round and SD and SD and offer?

From what I was told they are still reviewing application and you should hear something either today or tomorrow if you get a first round interview.

Aug 7, 2021 - 9:32am

Is the process basically wrapping up now? I'm not on the east coast and couldn't get a flight to get back in time after the networking event. I emailed them about the situation but they didn't reply

i havent heard people getting anything besides from PE/RE, also networked sith a senior person in a non-PE/RE group saying they're still in the process of recruiting

  • Prospect in IB-M&A
Aug 8, 2021 - 2:16pm

Any update on the Infra process? No hirevue means you're probably dinged im guessing?

  • Prospect in IB-M&A

Lol anyone know what the realistic gpa cutoff is at BX? Have a 3.6 with strong internships but not sure if thats good enough to be considered so it even worth trying for BX/networking

Aug 11, 2021 - 9:31am

I had to reschedule a direct conflict with my 1st round Zoom time for Thursday, (hopefully a time on the same day), have not received a response yet. It seems like there is a lot of logistics and a long turnaround for any communications.

Have heard there might be a second-round before superdays. Can anyone confirm?

  • Intern in IB - Gen

Nothing after first round. Hoping to hear back tomorrow or Monday
