Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and 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.
Interview Question – Logical puzzles Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and 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when I was about to start I got a call from my recruiter saying that the interview is cancelled because the role was withdrawn.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.
