    Intern Interview

    Interview Details

    very helpful although at times was hard to understand what was asked since the interviewer wasn t speaking very good english. Excessive questioning about financial markets as well as questions based on scenarios to see how the interviewee would respond. Finally, question regarding a specific company and how it would utilize the services of the firm.

    Financial Software Developer Interview

    Interview Details

    Applied online and the process took 3 days. The phone interview was relatively easy. The questions were mainly about C++. Asked what are overloading and overriding, pass by value and pass by reference, what are the default generated methods for a class etc. Some behaviour questions and Java questions. Two days later got the onsite interview invitation.

    Interview Questions
    • the unexpected question was "is the vector consecutive". I thought it wasn't as if it were consecutive then we would be able to use pointer arithmetic to iterate through the vector but i haven't seen that. I then was told it was actually consecutive. Just think about how vector is implemented and you won't miss it. The phone interview is easier than I expected. Nothing too difficult and the interviewer is quite nice.   Answer Question

    Phone interview asking basic C++ questions and some HR ones (why do you want to work for Bloomberg) followed by an on-site interview at their London office. On-site interview consisted of 2 technical interviews where they asked some simple algorithmic problems and asked to write some code on paper, plus a few questions on C++.
