Global Data Analyst Interview

Global Data Analyst
Skillman, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in December 2013.

Interview Details – Met at a career fair. They reached out to me shortly after and asked for me to apply online then followed up with a 30 minute phone interview with basic questions:
What do you know about Bloomberg?
Who are our competitors?
What are your career goals?
When have you used data analysis in a project or at work to solve a problem?

They like answers that incorporate a data analysis component or show sometime of added efficiency or cost savings.

Other than that, just normal behavioral interview questions such as your biggest weakness, your greatest strengths, time you displayed leadership, time you dealt with conflict, time you worked in a group, etc.

Then had interview at the company a few days later that were set up round robin style (took several hours total). They start with an informal lunch in their cafeteria and everyone introduces themselves and meets the recruiters. Next, each recruiter takes one candidate into a private room for a 30 minute interview. My first interview round had 2 analysts interview me and ask some technical questions about basic financial industry knowledge then behavioral questions like I described above. Next round I interviewed with a low level manager for 30 minutes who asked more interviews. Final round was with an upper-level manager who wanted to meet me and asked questions like why do you want to work for Bloomberg? Do you see this as a job or as a career? What do you like the most and least about the company? What did you think of the interviews you had so far and how have your experiences been here? What do you think about the office environment from what you've observed today?

Interview Question – Why would you want to accept an offer from Bloomberg instead of another firm? And would you accept our offer if we offered less money than another firm?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Entry-level position. No negotiation. emailed me the day after my interview to let me know I got the job and contacted me a few days later with a formal offer.

Global Data Analyst Interview

Global Data Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in October 2010.

Interview Details – Submitted my resume with the career development center at my university. Got an email to set up an interview a few days later. The interview was 1 hour long. It was mostly questions about the industry and my knowledge of the markets in general. I was not asked any behavioral questions. I dressed appropriately, for the interview, a business suit, but the interview was in a skirt that came above her knees, a long sleeve plain shirt, and flats. She did not look as if she had taken much time into trying to make a good impression on the students interviewing.
