    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got two technical phone interviews then one on-site interview. The question was not very difficult about linked-list. The second questsion was about implementing Merge Sort in C++ which I did not give a perfect answer. Overall, I thought I answered quite well for all the questions but few days later I got an email saying that I did not make it through.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of several rounds: 1 online test, 1 phone interview, 2 interviews on-site. Most questions were difficult to say the least. The online test measured your C/C++ skills. The phone interview was OK. The onsite interviews were difficult, especially the final one with the head of R&D and HR.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had an IKM online skills assessment test in C++ and I scored around 80% in that test.
    After that I was called for a telephone interview which lasted around 45 minutes. They touched C, C++, OOPS, Java (though I dont have any prior experience), .Net, Project planning etc. Overall it went very well and the interviewer was saying "excellent", "very good" even for some simple questions also. And then they have arranged for a face-to-face interview after 2 weeks. On the interview day when I was about to start I got a call from my recruiter saying that the interview is cancelled because the role was withdrawn. Well, I dont know why that happened, but I am very disappointed with the outcome.

    Interview Details

    On-line exam, thought it would mostly like be Java as thats what I selected in the application but the questions were mainly about C/C++. Extremely hard, coming out of university with a 1st class honours and I'd hardly heard of any of the concepts

    Interview Details

    Did an online skills test that consisted of STL, Polymorphism, constant, pointers and pointer to a constant, exception handling and namespaces, Usual standard C++ stuff. Anyone doing the test just needs to brush up on there C++, these kind of tests can be easy to pass and easy to fail.
