Basically they'll ask if you can do a mind numbing repetitive task all day for every day you work there. Ops is not a great place to be.

I interviewed for ops role at MM fund in southeast and thought the process was much easier than interviewing for consulting roles

like

Interviewed with a portfolio ops team at a PE firm. The role was pitched as the PE firm’s in-house consultant who would help portfolio companies cut costs by improving operational efficiencies. Couple of phone interviews with behavioral and case questions followed by a super day with more behavioral and case questions along with an excel test. Light on the finance-specific questions.

That being said, every shop does it differently. WSO publishes some very thorough guides that encompasses all the types of questions they could ask.

Thanks!
