Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview

Applied online. Recruiter was very rude, had me clear my schedule for 2 hours to be available for a phone call. Cancelled the first time, 5 MINUTES before the 2-hour window was up. Almost happened the second time, but I called HR and explained that this would be the second time this would happen and that my time wasn't being respected. Recruiter probably had me on speaker phone while cooking because she was spacey and nonresponsive.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2010.

    Interview

    It is a 2:1 interview. Two interviewers and me. Based on my resume, they asked me a lot of C++ programming techs. And they improvise, extend to other not related at all techs, detailed to memory locating, etc. Then brain teaser. It is quite okay, but they want to show your whole thinking process. I ended up gave them not a standard answer, and explain to them step by step why this works. They pay great attention to my thinking process. Last, they gave me a problem to write the usdo code. And comment, ask why I did this on every step. It is a little bit difficult to concentrate, but I guess it is how the working environments are, you constantly dealing with people, and coworkers. It ended up badly with not remembering some library code, and not familiar with the hardware related coding.
