    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first round was a 30-min phone interview with HR people, which is really nice and pleasant. Easy questions. The second round was a 30-min phone interview with the manager from the team you're applying for, which is tougher. A few challenging behavioral questions were asked.

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview as initial screening and was asked to go into office for in person interview. The interview in the office started with 2 Team Leaders, then interviewed with Product Manager, and finally interviewed with Department Manager. Questions varied widely in each interview and (as I later when through Bloomberg's interview training classes) are based solely on each individual's preferred questions as there are no "standard" questions. Most Bloomberg managers already believe that the interviewing candidate has the basic qualifications for the job, they are simply looking to assess your personality, potential, and ability to fit into Bloomberg's fast paced culture.

    • If your job was to oversee a vending machine, what steps would you take to ensure proper inventory, quality, and sales?   View Answer
    • Why do you want to leave your current employer?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate salary/bonus, vacation time, etc. The only request I made was that Bloomberg help to finance my relocation expenses, which they did not do. If the position is more senior, the interviewing candidate would have more negotiating power, but Bloomberg has set salary/bonus and vacation time benefits for entry-level positions.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied Online, heard back a couple months later. Received an initial call to see if I was the right person and if i was interested in the position. WOULD HAVE TAKEN SKILLS TEST but couldn't make it on testing day because of finals. Went to the office for a 3:1 interview. Interviewers were very candid asked a lot of questions. This was followed by another 1:1 interview. They analyze every part of your resume so know it and be able to elaborate on it. Whole process took about an hour. The building is nice, high security, a lot of people moving around.
