Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

Phone interview with HR followed by an in-house interview which consisted of two half hour interviews both of which were 2 interviewers and me. They are really friendly at Bloomberg. No drug test at any point.

Interview Questions

  • Mostly behavioral questions. I think I was only asked one question related to the markets.   Answer Question

Negotiation

No negotiation. Don't even try because they would probably revoke your offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    A HR rep contacted me with times that work for me. She called me in the beginning of the time window that worked for me. The interviewer had little personality and took no time to actually get to know me beyond the few questions she had to ask.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process took 1 week. Apply online, got a phone interview two days later. I was expecting a lot more data analysis questions, but the interviewer did not ask any. No tough questions. Basically all behavioral questions. Also, you will be expected to answer if you have read any econ or finance related magazines such as the economist or wsj.

    Interview

    They ask why you're interested, who is your ideal boss. Work culture is flat gender-wise, professional and passionate about stocks and media.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    First interview with a recruiter on campus. Asked regular behavioral questions (What do you know about Bloomberg, Why hire you, Walk me through your resume, A time you showed leadership/worked on a team, How would you apply your background/skills here, Tell me about an event in the market, etc). Took them about 2 months to respond and invited me to Skillman, NJ for a second round interview. (I had about a week to prepare). 2 rounds of interviews, each with two managers at a time. Also asked behavioral questions (except a little more intense) and then got some lunch and a tour of the office. Very nice, but not nearly like the one in NYC. A week later I got a call for an offer to intern in NJ.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should we hire you? (And if you say a buzzword or cliches, you're cut off)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not what I expected. Great experience but company is all news and data. Different aspect from banking world.
