Interviewed at Bloomberg L.P.
Interview Details – Application, followed by test, followed by phone interview, 1st round, and 2nd round. Final round if successful
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in April 2009.
Interview Details – it was very simple and casual, i met with my (potential) manager -- interview lasted about an hour and the next week I got an offer. This was several years ago and seems to have changed significantly. I was also recommended by a current employee. This is the fastest way to get a job here, find someone you know who works there and have them submit your resume.
Interview Question – The most difficult question is about the Bloomberg culture. Be upbeat, talk about doing whatever it takes and show that you want to be a part of a team. The culture and values are the #1 reason they hire people. If the interviewer doesn't think you will be a good fit then you wont get the job. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was pretty simple. I told them what I wanted and what I was currently making and they increased my base by about 10% but highlighted all the "free benefits" (that has changed as you now pay a nominal fee for healthcare costs).
The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in September 2011.
Interview Details – Multiple interviews.
Negotiation Details – Rough

Interview Details – I applied to bloomberg twice online. No matter they give the offer or not, the hiring process is fast and efficient. I always receive feedback within 2-3 days. I like the process in the sense that the clear cut way of doing things fits better in the fast changing business world.

Interview Details – Very simple behavioral questions that you would find on any other interview (i.e. teamwork, previous internships/jobs, classes, organizations, etc). Threw a curveball with "Tell me what's going on in the news right now," but I was prepared to answer since I read the Wall Street Journal everyday (recommend the same for everyone).
Interview Question – Tell me about what's going on in the news right now Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2011.
Interview Details – Interview with HR was great, very nice lady really interested in learning about my personality. When i went in person to meet 2 people from the salesteam - a manager and a sales person, I was in shock.
They asked questions such as "what are the 2 carachteristics you will bring to bloomberg that are going to 'wow' us?". No questions about my performance, my sales skills, etc. It is as if they had a silly script. Hated every second of it, and felt really stupid, being a experienced professional with 10 years experience and an MBA, being asked so many stupid questions.
