Aladdin & Technology Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in February 2013.
Got the initial interview from on campus recruitment and got the superday offer the day after. superday was a week after, and contains 4 rounds, even one was with VP. Mostly the questions are based on Java concept like what's garbage collection? what does "volatile" keyword do?what's the difference between C++ and Java? what's the difference between Java abstract class and interface? Also contains question regarding design pattern, I get several question about singleton pattern. Just a few programming work given Java. No brain teasers, but the interview question are creative. Generally not very hard, interviewers are very nice. A very good experience.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2009.
Blackrock were on campus and held an initial interview. This was a basic behavioral interview with some programming questions. After this, I was selected to go on-site for the next round. I had 3 interviews here and they were all very different. One was about programming, one about problem-solving and the third was conversational. I did not get the offer.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in November 2012.
I sent a CV through by email to their recruiting HR address. I was then invited for a first session of 2x30 minute interviews. The first one was a technical interview which focused mostly on my CV and asking about the kind of software projects i have been involved with in the past. Following this discussion i was asked how i would apply my background to solve some problems within the business. The second interview was a combination of HR and ability. I was asked a couple of basic Financial Questions. We then talked about the teamwork and other basic HR things.
