    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Skillman, NJ) in January 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    The company building is very modern and sophisticated. Very nice greeters, but the interviewers may make you a bit uncomfortable. Be prepared to talk about your past experiences, current market, and knowledge/understanding of the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Skillman, NJ) in June 2010.

    Interview

    They had 1st round phone interview to do the screening about your backgound and to make sure you are the person they want to bring into 2nd round interview. I was invited to 2nd round and was told they would be 2 interviews for one hour each. (2 persons for each interviews) Those 2 persons on the first gounp were basically trying to introduce Bloomberg terminal and to discuss your interest/background. It took 50 minutes. Then I was expecting for the 2nd group of interview. However, one person came back to tell me the persons of the 2nd group just "happened to" be in the meeting. Then they would like me to go back to re-schedule next interview for 2nd group. HOWEVER, NEVER contact me any more. I tried to call the first HR. NO response. I was lucky to remember one of the interviewers full name. I called Bloomberg operator to ask for this person. I got his voicemail and email. I tried to be polite to confirm the timing of interview (which should have been on the 2nd hour of original interview) by leaving voicemail and sending and email. UNFORTUNATELY, the response was SUCK. He said "SORRY FOR THE MISUNDERSTANDING, HR is currently reviewing my resume and will contact me if they want to move further) This was absurb!! If they don't like me, they can just tell me there is no 2nd group. Why lied to me that they were in the meeting and would contact me to reschedule? Insulting experience!!! One month later, got an email from HR saying they regret they would not extend an offer.......... Very insulting interview experience....
