    Solution Center Analyst - Summer Interview

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

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    I had two rounds of interviews. The first round was in university career center. The interview was 1:1, and the manager was very nice. I think we had a pretty relaxed and nice conversation. Several weeks after the first round, I got an email to invite me to an on-site interview in New York. The solution team interviewed me one-by-one. Four officers interviewed me, and each interview lasted about 30 minutes. The interviewers are very friendly and nice. Their working environments look very comfortable and supporting.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    Attended an information session at my University. After the information session, I applied through the job board of the career services office at my University. It was a one on one interview. Most of the questions were about my resume and past experiences. No technical questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were not technical at all, which was surprising. My background was in originating debt and equity products for financial institutions, so I reviewed banking valuation and credit analysis. The job was to work with the team that provided advisory services to banks.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BlackRock in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by BlackRock recruitor out of NY office. Interview was scheduled with two other paralegals about 2 weeks after initial contact. Scheduled for lunch-hour. Very disorganized and nerve-racking. Admitted at meeting this was first time reviewing resume.

    Interview Questions
    • Silence. The interview felt as if they were going through the motions, that it was not real, and there was never any genuine intention of consideration. Very frustrating.   Answer Question

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

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    It was a on campus interview. The hiring team came to our university and spent whole day to interview students. The manager didn't ask me a lot of behavior questions. She focused on my education background. Why do you choose this course? What did you learn from this course? How can this course help you in this position?

    If you don't know how to answer the question, telling them you don't know is better than saying other things. This suggestion came from the recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • First question: do you know which position you applied for? in which department?   Answer Question
