Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at BlackRock in June 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process was thorough but fair. It included three rounds of interviews, the last of which was long and included 7 interviews. The people were very nice, and while they asked a lot of questions, they did not try to make me uncomfortable or stressed.

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at BlackRock in June 2010.

Interview Details – Received phone call - went through screening rounds with HR and some mid-level people. Interviews were both personality based and ask some concept type questions to understand technical skills. Asked back for interviews with more high level people - the questions were even more about fit and personality, although high level concept questions were asked again. Final round was with Sr level people and followed the same basic principles.
