Financial Sales and Analytics Interview

No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in May 2015.

Interview

Self introduction followed by 2 group activities; 1 involving how you as a team would invest 10 million dollars and another on ranking characters in a mermaid story. The hiring manager seemed completely disinterested and eager to just get over the interview and move on with his day. Poor listener and it told me everything I needed to know about Bloomberg in HK.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2015.

    Interview

    applied online, 30min phone interview, 60 min video call interview at a local office. Very nice people who seemed to like there job and the work environment. Instead of 3 days, I received a automatic/no-reply rejection email after 2/3 weeks. Recruiter didn't answer my feedback request - even though they send out feedback forms themselves (not totally fair in my opinion).

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in February 2012.

    3 rounds. Applied online and heard back the day after. Set up a phone interview for 20-30 minutes (standard behavioral questions, why Bloomberg, why this role, what's going on in the news, how do you show our interest in financial news/companies). Second round was an in-person interview with one manager from analytics and one from sales. Same sorts of questions (how would you sell a Bloomberg terminal, why do you want to move to Bloomberg, why leave your current role, what are you bringing with you). Last round was with head of analytics department 1:1 (who are our clients, what is happening in various economies, do you want to be in analytics or sales, examples where you spoke to clients, etc.) Heard back the day after my last interview with an offer (they were looking to hire asap).
