Vista Equity Partners' Recruitment Process

Vista Equity Partners' recruitment process consists of five steps consisting of telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and psychometric and personality tests. The overall procedures may differ amongst the different companies belonging to Vista Equity Partners.

Stage 1: Online Application

The online application can be done directly on the Vista Equity Partners site, on global recruitment sites or on the site of the company searching for new employees. Once you have submitted your application and if your profile matches, you will be contacted by the company which subsequently will send you a link to complete the online psychometrical and personality tests.

Step 2: CCAT + EPP Online Tests

Vista Equity Partners applies the same recruitment tests to all candidates looking forward to being recruited in one of their companies. These tests are Criteria's cognitive test, the CCAT (see dedicated page), and Criteria's personality test, the EPP. Both tests are conducted online and in order to avoid fraud some companies may decide to observe you through webcam while you are taking the CCAT, or to make you pass it directly at their offices. Your score on these tests will determine the next step in your recruitment process. For more information on the CCAT and complete preparation, please visit the following page.

Step 3: Phone call

The next step consists of a first telephone interview dedicated to introduce you to the position for which you are applying, where also both counterparts will verify the adequacy of the demands of the employer and the candidate concerning different aspects of the position. You may be asked certain questions about your profile or knowledge.

Step 4: Second CCAT observed (optional)

If the company for which you are applying does not require recording of the first CCAT conducted, you may be required to retake the test under the company's premises in your next interview. This step is optional and depends on the company you are applying for.

Step 5: Interview

The next step is a face-to-face interview. We recommend you to practice answering some of the most well-known questions utilized questions in this type of interviews, for example:
