    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for an analyst position and received an unscheduled phone call the next week asking if I had some time to discuss my application, which I didn't so rescheduled for the next Monday morning.
    This 'phone interview' was pretty easy going and only lasted 15 minutes with basic questions being asked like:
    (1) Why Bloomberg?
    (2) Why this role?
    Seemed to really just want to hear that I had a good understanding of the company. Easy going conversation with a friendly voice on the other end.

    A few days later I was invited to interview - this was carried out by video conference in one of their local offices as I was not based in London.
    Interviewed by two young, friendly people. Questions were slightly more varied, but again they really just wanted to hear that I was passionate about my chosen area, that I understood Bloomberg well and was eager to work for them over any investment bank, that I understood the role and that I had experience working with data sets before - a few more questions here but nothing overly complicated.

    If you can convey that you're well motivated and passionate about the area I think interviewees will tend to do well in any interview.

    Invited to second round interview which was also carried out via video conference, and then finally invited to an in-house interview for the final round - again the majority of the questions were similar to those already mentioned.

    Experience was very good throughout to be honest, all my interviewers were very friendly - read up what others have said on Glassdoor and you won't be caught out.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The position I applied was a temporary position, therefore two round of interview in total.

    The first one was a phone interview with HR manager. She called me someday randomly and talked with me around half an hour in total. Just go through my resume once.

    The second one was in Bloomberg office, with the team manager. Resume stuffs and some questions about your personality. Also told me more about the job details.

    Nice conversation but end up with no offer.
