    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I got an employee referral, so the process is kind of quick for my situation. The first round is a phone interview. Vary simple questions. Tell my one of your projects which is most interesting. Why BlackRock? One example of teamwork. Two days after the phone interview, I am invited to the Friday SuperDay interview at Seattle. The interviews lasted for 3 hours with five 1:1 interviewer. Majority of the questions are very easy and interviewers are vary nice as well. I don't think there is any technical questions at all. You want to make sure that you prepared every single projects on your resume. The group I am interviewing for is APG, the IT group. My coding background is not very strong while all other candidates are from CS. They have two opening intern positions at APG, software developers and data scientists. They are looking for people with both analytical skills and computer skills such as SQL, Python or Java.

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from the recruiter about a week later. The internship position was to be part time in the local office and we scheduled a phone interview in the next couple days. Phone interview was pretty easy and the interviewer was very nice. Just talked about qualifications and what the job would entail. I followed up with the phone interview a week later and she told me that I didn't get the position. Though the later steps of the interview process I remember would be two more interviews with one with an actual graduate of my university and another with a manager. Pay was going to be a little low though.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter was very helpful and assisted me with finding the appropriate internship position. BlackRock interviews are normally impersonal and to get through it you really need to know your stuff. Know everything on your resume, and definitely prepare all the interview questions you can find online. Research BlackRock to understand what their company culture and philosophy is all about. Also, I thought I had no chance of getting it based on how the person reacted but apparently end shouldn't read too much into that.
