This would be for a start as an intern/analyst/associate? When would you start?

For the GMAT you should expect logical, problem-solving and arithmetic question, for which you could train using online resource (tons of GMAT materials online).

I guess for the interview it would be previous M&A experience, deals you've worked on, LBO modeling questions, that sort of stuff (I recommend the WSO private equity guide, very helpful!)
