    Interview Details

    My telephone interview was delayed for a week. When I was finally interviewed, it lasted for 13 minutes and the questions I was asked were mainly motivation (Why Bloomberg? Why this division? What is the competitive advantage of our company) and conventional competency-based questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Group Interview, with a group of 5 people in the main office in Hong Kong. Was interviewed by a recruiter in a chillax atmosphere. The recruiter was funky and friendly, trying to loosen up the morning tiring mood, and asking us to tell him more about ourselves, including an interesting fact. Then we were to finish off two tasks, one is to advise the recruiter on how to invest 10m dollars, and the second is to rank our preference towards the characters in the little mermaid tale, and to come into a consensus. Lastly, to take a stance in supporting the ranking and to make a short persuasive speech.

    Interview Details

    Fairly straight forward. The motivation for the job and the company are most important. They try to make you go beyond the standard stuff such as “I like the offices and free food; the flat hierarchy is great”. They were really stressing on the motivational part. They did not bother on any standard stuff like going through your CV. They asked about the different products Bloomberg sells.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.
