Director Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY).

Interview

This was a long drawn out process and frankly a waste of time. I was called to a casual meeting which led to multiple onsite interviews and then nothing. They kept saying that they wanted change yet no one I met was ready to change.
Advice: One day you will realize that you are treating applicants poorly and that your practices are turning people off. In a service industry, I imagine that you would want to have your applicants to be treated the same as clients. In my case, I was both and now I am neither!

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Applied on-line and was contacted by the company recruiter to arrange an interview with the hiring manager. Had a phone interview with the hiring manager lasting about 30-45 mins. At the end of the interview, the hiring manager said that they want to bring me in for face-to-face interviews with several stakeholders.

    I didn't hear anything for about 3 weeks and so I contacted the recruiter. Finally got an e-mail saying that they made an offer to another candidate who had accepted. Were they ever going to let me know ? What a waste of time and effort. Very unsatisfactory experience.
