    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for the position, and about a week or so later I received a request for a telephone interview. The telephone interview consisted of the usual questions. What do you know about Bloomberg? A few days after the telephone interview, I was contacted to arrange a in house interview. The in house interview was carried out by two young guys. They asked mostly basic questions and went through my resume. The key part was they asked you to carry out a typing speed test while answering technical questions. This kind of threw me off, as the test is using the bloomberg keyboard, which i had never used before. I know my typing speed is better than the result i achieved and also did not see the point of this. I was promised that i would hear something the following week. I still haven't heard anything. I think they should at least bother to contact you to let you know you have been unsuccessful, considering the effort you have put in to attend.

    Global Technical Support Represntative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in December 2010.

    Interview

    The phone interview and the in-house interview consisited of 2 basic questions -- 1) walkthrough of my resume and 2) "Why Bloomberg?" The in-house was not difficult, per se, but it was a gauntlet of different Team Leads asking similar questions as I noted above. I was interviewed with 2 people first...then sat in for 10 minutes on one of the technician's calls...then interviewed with 2 different people...then lastly 1 person. Whole process took 2 hours, approximately, from start to finish. I would've preferred hearing from the hiring manager or recruiter personally as opposed to the generic HR "declined" email. Especially as I'd like to believe they don't have every candidate shadow one of the technician's calls. Also contact information for the hiring managers on the gauntlet of interviews went through.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two members of the team. Very straight forward. How fast can I type. Can I multitask, "yes, they did ask these two questions." Why Bloomberg? Talk about some of my experiences. Shift possibilities. What it boiled down to is that I wasn't their fit. Most likely over qualified, for the position and maybe intimidating. Nothing technical, nothing challenging.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in December 2009.

    Interview

    It was a two-hour interview. I met with a first set of two mangers, went through my resume, and was given more detail about the company and the position. Then I was placed with an employee and shadowed for about 15 minutes. It was very interesting and the employee was very helpful in explaining different situations and what each component is for. I then interviewed with another set of three people, going over the same information as before and then shadowed with another employee afterwards. This employee was very helpful in even informing one of the techs that I would be listening in and gaining his permission for such use. He would then explain certain terms that was commonplace in GTEC but not familiar to myself. I then interviewed with three more people and even had a small, brief Japanese conversation to show my proficiency. Advice I would give is to be as calm as possible. If you plan to show off any language ability, if you are not fluent, definitely brush up and try to speak as calmly as possible. The interview went very well and the deciding process was only a few days. A very pleasant process!

    Negotiation

    I informed I would take a 40k minimum due to my experience and what not, I was able to secure 8k more.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applying through an agent, I have gone through phone interview and group assessment. Phone interview was a general one, asking questions to look at your background, interest and motivation, and importantly, your linguistic ability. Group assessment was 2-hour long, consisting of greeting session, discussion and presentation. Basically throughout the recruitment process Bloomberg is looking for someone who has passion for technology, has good mannerism, has linguistic ability.
