    I applied through an employee referral – 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.

    Interview

    Got an first interview at the Carrier forum, and went through 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th round. All interviews asked about motivation, behavioral questions, not the technical one. I am now expecting to have the final round- 6th round. First they said 5th was the final but changed it somehow.
