Engineer
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2008.

Interview Details – Applied through campus recruiting. I had two phone interviews with relatively easy C++ questions. The interviewers were friendly and helpful. After the second phone interview, I was invited to NYC for a day of in person interviews. I had 4-5 interviews, two of them were 1:1 the others were with at least two people and finally had an interview the Human Resources person. Interview was mostly basic C++ and math.

Engineer
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2010.

Interview Details – I had an initial phone interview with one senior developer. He asked me some of the public web sites I have worked on (I was interviewing for web developer position). The following week I was brought in for a 3-hour interview. Met with 4 different people. Asides from technical interviews they like to ask questions regarding your working style or how you work with a team.
I interviewed for only one afternoon. A few days later they gave me offer and I accepted.
The NY office is fancy and nice. Chic and stylish decor. Free snacks and drinks.

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in May 2009.

Interview Details – I did not like the interviewing as a doc. Quality of work if very low and calibre of people is on. Interviews were too easy and they asked stupid questions sometimes. He asked flow charts and some C++ code . Learn pointers and functions and how to create instance of a class in your head. They also try to trick you with pointer questions to catch you off guard but at the end the questions were below standard and did not have any juice in them
