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?

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Skillman, NJ) in December 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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.
