    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview with a VP in the group. Asked me to walk through my resume and explain how my experience with my current firm prepared me for that role. Later that afternoon HR contacted me to set up onsite interviews. I met with analysts and associates on the team as well as the VP. Questions were mostly fit, but they did ask if I followed financial news and what stories I found interesting. You need to truly understand what you are talking about, not simply repeat words from the articles. They will test your knowledge. Also, know why you want to work at Blackrock particularly the group you're interviewing with. I was then brought back in for another interview with the Director and Managing Director. Both were pleasant, explained their expectations, but mostly wanted know if I had any questions about the role.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    These interviews are pretty standard on-campus interviews. Roughly three rounds with a super day in their New York City headquarters. Interviews tend to be pretty general and HR based; with very few financial-analyses related questions. Tend to hire candidates from finance and tech educational backgrounds. Final round interview will be with roughly 5 people.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackRock in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the university, and they made me answer questions via email. After that, they set up a phone interview for the position. It was not too difficult, mostly behavioral questions. Then they brought me into their new york office for an interview. It was fairly difficult, and more technical than the other interviews.
