    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Shortly after I applied, I was contacted by a person in HR. I was then given a phone interview with 2 members of the team. After the phone interview, they invited me in for an in-person. I then met with 4 members of the team: 2 associates, a VP, and a director. The questions were your standard, "Tell us about a time you overcame a problem." "What do you feel most proud of accomplishing in your life and why?" Open-ended, tell us about yourself questions. No surprises and the team kept it pretty conversational.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    8 hour interview meeting with 5 different people, which they don't tell you it's going to be that long, but you have to suck it up if you want the job. Each person gave a detailed description about what they do, what the company is about. benefits, etc. You meet with the big boss at the end and although it's tough, it's not unbearable. Try not to lose your patience.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, DE
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, DE
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    My first interview was a phone interview, very straightforward about my resume. My second interview consisted in 7 1:1 interviews of 30 mins each with 7 different departments. It felt long because I did not have a break. They started by giving an overview of their department and then they asked me about my resume. They also asked me questions like what was the most difficult obstacle you overcome and where do you see yourself in 5 years. After that interview, I was asked to go back to interview with two of the departments. The format was basically the same except they asked me specific questions about Excel.
