    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in August 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Portfolio Compliance Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I had one phone interview with the hiring manager that lasted about an hour. It was very low key, and simply consisted of questions about my background and interest in the company, as well as an explanation of the company and the role. The next day I was contacted and told that I was to be flown to Wilmington for a day of interviews a few weeks later. That day consisted of meeting the hiring manager and touring the office, then four or five ~40 minute interviews, each with 2-3 people of varying levels of experience. In between, I was taken to lunch with some of the younger analysts. The interviews consisted of mostly personality and fit questions, but in each one there were a few brain teasers, similar to the ones listed below. It was important to talk through these problems so your interviewers could get a sense for how you solved problems, and it didn't matter if you figured out every single one (I know I missed a few).

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about yourself.
      How many basketballs would fit in this room?
      How would you describe the difference between a stock and a bond to a 7 year old?
      If you were stuck in a country with no phone and didn't speak the language, how would you get out?
       
      Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The role didn't seem like a good fit for me. I wasn't particularly interested in the duties involved, although the people were friendly, the office environment seemed nice, and salary was very good for a recent college graduate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE).

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in March 2013.

    Interview

    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.
