Global Data Analyst Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Skillman, NJ) in April 2015.

Interview

The entire process from the time that my resume was submitted until the time I received an offer was approximately 4-5 months. The majority of that time was the gap between submission and the initial point of contact for a phone screening. Once I had that first contact, the rest took about a month and a half in total. - Phone Screen - In Person (meet with 3 people separately) - Offer 1.5 weeks later

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    First there was a 30 min phone interview. Then I got invited to interview on-site. I had 3 one-on-one interviews that lasted 30 minutes each. Pretty typical questions, nothing that really caught me off guard. Walk me through your resume, what do you know about Bloomberg, why do you want to work for Bloomberg, would be able to live in the Northeast, give me one last pitch at why we should hire you?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Skillman, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Process took about 3 weeks. Interviewed on campus first. Basic behavioral questions, asked about what you knew about the position, markets. Got invited to their skillman office. Office was really cool and had a great atmosphere. Had 3 interviews there with HR and senior people. This was more about fit and asking questions about my resume. Easy process with nice, personable people. The fact that I was bloomberg certified helped a lot.

    Interview

    Initial contact set up through the school. Two rounds of phone interviews followed, and an all expenses paid trip to Princeton, NJ. Two in person interviews, two on one. The interviews were not bad, but you compete against at least eight other candidates if you make it to the in-person round. The recruiter was nice and we exchanged follow up emails, but after Bloomberg decides you are not the right candidate, it is impossible to get back in touch with them.

    Applied online and received email to schedule phone interview. Basic all behavior questions: Go through resume; What's your career goal/path? Any specific area interested? Why bloomberg?
