    • The interviewer was very patient and helpful. He guided me through the though process but was very fastidious and kept asking till he heard what he wanted to hear. Asked me to write the code for the hash function when the key is a string of 2 characters between a and z.   View Answer

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online, although I was initially rejected due to an error, they got back in contact. They arranged a phone interview. It lasted 45 minutes. He talked a bit about the company, then moved onto some technical questions. Before the interview they send you a range of topics that questions may be pulled from. I did not get any further in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • It turns out Bloomberg use a lot of C++, I said many times to the interviewer I had no experience with it, but he still asked me questions about it.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website and I had a 30min phone interview.
    The interviewer was really nice and helpful. I did horribly in the interview though.
    I had listed C++ as one of my strengths on the basis that I can do number crunching with it.
    They want CS people not scientists converted into naive programmers.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me to estimate the algorithmic complexity of finding a value in a binary tree. This is an easy question, but only if you have ever encountered a binary tree. Doing it on the spot during the interview is probably not reccommendable.   Answer Question
