    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    Applied via College Career Center. Heard back and was asked to submit responses through Montage Video Center. General fit questions like "Why BlackRock," etc. Be sure to know why you are applying to your specific division/group. So far, communications with the recruiters have been very friendly. Still waiting to hear back about this round.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Received an on campus interview after the resume screening. Two senior team members interviewed candidates for one opening. They seemed to focus the interview on 1) if you know the basics in investment; 2) if you are a good fit for the team. Each interview was 30 minutes. Questions were not too tough but would be difficult to come up with a good answer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    These guys impressed me. Lots of how you think questions and less how you remember questions. Going through the resume and listening to me belt out rehearsed answers is, in the end, a waste of everyone's time. Maybe its that they are not interested in being in the same trades as everyone else. Lots of tough ex-lehman employees

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    The phone interview was directly with management, very thorough CV questions. SuperDay was rough, first a panel (nice team) asking mostly CV and fit questions, then a 1:1 (aggressive), up to now not sure if it was a meant to be a stress interview or the guy was just annoyed by me being there. That being said, know a lot of detail about the company. Felt like interview skills were being tested more than actual technical skills. Questions on conflict and lying.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock in October 2009.

    Interview

    I applied online through a college recruiting website and got an interview for a financial analyst position. The interviewer seemed uninterested in the interview process and was not engaging at all. I don't know why a company would send someone who doesn't like to talk to people to conduct on campus interviews. Anyway, the interview went ok, basic questions about my interests and team experiences then I got a chance to ask about BlackRock but it doesn't seem like a place I'd like to work.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Pretty much straight forward finance interview. A lot of behavioral and fit questions considering it was a firmwide analyst hire. Got the interview through a resume drop to the college career center. one-to-one interviews. Though I thought the interview was very conversational, the interviewer wasn't very interested in what I have to say about my resume, which kind of set me off a bit. Other than that, I have heard that the firm is very horizontal in structure and diverse in academic sense.
