    Global Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview Details

    4 stages: phone interview, 2 in house interview and then one conference call with the NYC office.
    The questions are always the same during the interviews: why bloomberg/why this role/what are the competitors of Bloomberg/ what is the difference between Bloomberg and Reuters.
    Also some questions that you have to answer quickly: do you prefer daily or long term tasks?/ would you rather give a figure not accurate or not give it at all?/do you prefer precise instructions or no instructions at all?
    Finally, I had the feeling that most of the questions were motivational. Also prepare questions about the Bloomberg culture and the career path you would like to have in the company.

    Global Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Basic application process consisting of a phone interview and two other interviews at their office.
    The online application was very simple, you do not need to write long essays as in other places. Then the phone interview is simple as well, you are asked why Bloomberg, why this position and some other competency questions about teamwork, leadership etc.
    The second interview was with a member of the team, it was easy and did not require lots of preparation.... Just stay calm and enjoy the interview.
    Third the same as the second interview.
