    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview, with pretty simple questions about yourself and the Financial Markets. Know your resume very well and be able to talk about highlights that you've accomplished.

    I was emailed the next day after the phone interview to come in for their super day. On the super day I had two one on one interviews with employees in both the sales department and analytics department. In all honesty, I'm not quite sure how some of those people got a job there. The guy that was showing us the terminal literally told us that his interview was the first time he had heard the term "Bloomberg Terminal."

    Overall I really loved the environment there though. People were really friendly and everyone seemed passionate about what they were doing.

    Maybe it's just the immense amounts of food they have around the building that keep everyone motivated.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university career services website in January. Once the application process was over in February I received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was with a lady in HR, lasted about 15 minutes, and was almost entirely behavioral. The interviewer was a bit monotone, and seemed fairly uninterested in the conversation. A few days later I received an email saying that Bloomberg would not be continuing the process with me.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    I applied online for the internship position and heard back within a week to set up a phone interview. The woman called within her time frame but seemed very uninterested and I wondered how many she had had that day alone. Her first question/command was to "walk me through your resume and why you chose bloomberg" I was flustered at first and her only follow up question was why I chose finance.
    After approximately 10 minutes we ended the conversation and I felt very uneasy. Nonetheless 3 weeks later I received an email for a super day. The in office super day is next week and I'm doing my very best to prepare for it since Bloomberg is my top/target company

    Interview Questions

The second phone call focused on how much do I fit with this company, what is your leadership experience, strengths and weaknesses, etc.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Had to meet with a few people, asked questions about currently climate of the industry and why I would like to work at bloomberg. After this section I was told they would like me to stay for the remainder of the day to speak with their head of sales & analytics. I sat down with him and he asked me to sell him an app, I proceeded to sell him an app. After I proceeded to shadow a currently employee, this consisted of me watching her take chats one after the other. The following day I received a phone call asking if i could start within the next 3 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Why bloomberg?
      What is the currently climate of the finance industry?
      Why do I want to be in finance? In reality this isn't a real finance role despite what you may think.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    Got a phone interview after one week sending out resume. The interview questions were behavioral and hey valued the leadership and ability to group of the candidate slightly more than other qualities for this position. The interviewer were nice. But the response was quite slow, had to waited a few weeks for the notification. Overall, it was a moderate experience but Bloomberg was definitely a reputational company to work for.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone interview, just basic screening. Followed by an on-campus interview. Basic questions about experience and extra curricula's. Additional questions about sales experience and current fed policy.

    The final round was a mirror of the second round but with the managing directors of the Sales and Analytics team and in the New York headquarters. Interviewers seem disinterested and ask basic sales questions.
