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

Interview Details

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

    interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and got first phone interview from HongKong 20 days later. Basically just some behavior questions and how much do you know Bloomberg and its culture, products and competitors. 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 – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview Details

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview that was very quick, it lasted maybe 10 minutes. They flew us all in, about 50 of us, to DC. We had a tour of the DC office and then had an hour interview scheduled for an hour. I interviewed with 2 managers, 1 one for sales and 1 for analytic. They were very nice and did not ask any trick questions.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had 1 initial phone interview that lasted about 15-20 minutes. I was then called in for a super-day in the New York office, which consisted of 2, 30-minute interviews (1 with someone in sales, 1 with someone in analytics). They gave us a tour of the building and a demo of the terminal. No prior knowledge of the terminal is required. I got the internship and eventually got a full-time offer!

    Phone Interview Questions:
    Tell me about yourself. Tell me about a piece of financial news you have been following. What do you know about Bloomberg? Why sales and analytics?

    In-Person Interview Questions:
    Similar to phone interview, but with a little more in depth. Went through my resume and asked me specific questions about each bullet point (know your resume in depth). Sell me this pencil. How many gas stations are in the United States? Why Bloomberg over an investment bank? What are 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses? Tell us about a time when you took a leadership role working in a group. What are the qualities of a good salesperson?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting an online application, I had a 30 min initial phone screen with a recruiter and was quickly invited for an in person interview at the San Francisco office.

    Interview began with 20 minutes of shadowing a current employee to learn job responsibilities, terminal structure, etc. I was then taken to interview with a current Sales employee. The interview was about 40 minutes and structured mostly around fit questions- why Bloomberg, why Sales & Analytics, etc. The woman interviewing wasn't very pleasant; almost seemed as though she had a retort for all of my responses. The interview also had nothing to do with the actual job responsibilities, which essentially amount to a glorified call center.
