    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Washington, DC) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process wasn't overly strenuous but was not a walk in the park. The applicant field was quite large as you can imagine. Just be relaxed and prepared. Most of the interview questions already posted on here are accurate. If you know current market events, how basic financial instruments work, and information about Bloomberg you will be fine.

    Interview

    I applied online on my career services website. The process took a week or so for them to get back to me. They got back to me via email in regards to setting up a phone interview that would be approximately 15 minutes. During the interview they asked me about my resume and then asked me if I had any questions for them. After asking a couple of questions they let me know that I would hear from them soon and that the next interview would be in 2 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through Bloomberg's website on Friday midnight, and was so surprised that they got back to me by Monday afternoon. The HR arranged a phone call for Wednesday. My phone interview was with the HR and it was a pretty basic phone interview. She asked me to go over my resume, tell her what I have done in school etc and if I was really interested in Finance. Then she asked another question "What other companies other than Bloomberg did you apply to?". I counted a few banks, thinking that who applies to just one position at one firm in this economy? Then she went on to ask "Amongst the companies that you applied, which one would you prefer working for, excluding Bloomberg?" I was quite shocked by this question because it was definitely tricky. I never thought I would get asked this question during an interview because for all I know, why do they care what other companies that I applied to? It's none of their business but, I hesitated and asked if she wanted an answer excluding Bloomberg, and when she reiterated her answer, I gave her an honest answer. As soon as I gave myself up, I knew from her tone that she was no longer interested in me. I didn't get invited for another interview, and I got an automated email the following week that I wasn't selected. I understand that this was a bad answer, and no one wants to hear your true answers during an interview. It's all about giving answers that they want to hear.

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through my school's job website. Bloomberg called me within a week for a phone interview. Asked me about myself and why I wanted to work for Bloomberg.

    They flew me to a regional event. There were about 20 other kids invited to it.
    Most stressed question: Why do you want to work for Bloomberg instead of go into Banking.

    Know everything about the company. What are their products? Who do they sell to?

    Overall good experience - they put me in a nice hotel and did not make me wait long for the interview to start.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was a tour of the building by two tour guides, two separate 1:1 interviews and a presentation on the terminal. The interviewers told you a bit about themselves and expected a 15 minute pitch from you on why you're awesome and what your deal is. They had very few questions. One of my interviewers was rather rude and all she said was "I've worked here for 10 years, tell me about yourself."
