    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Bloomberg Television.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview took about 10 minutes. The woman on the other end was very nice and friendly. She asked me first to tell me about myself, and asked me why I was interested in working at Bloomberg. She asked about my availability and then asked what I would be looking for as far as an hourly compensation rate. She then told me a little more about the company and what I could expect by working in this environment. After asking her a few questions myself, she told me that she would pass along her notes to her hiring manager and for me to expect to hear back from her in a few days.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about what I expected to earn on an hourly rate. I'm used to job or day - based rates, so wasn't exactly sure what to say. I just replied that I am flexible.   Answer Question

    TV Producer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Bloomberg Television.

    Interview Details

    Bloomberg approached me to ask if would be interested in applying for a position. After a couple of initial phone interviews, I had to sit a test to gauge my writing and editing ability and knowledge of financial markets. Several phone interviews followed with more senior people and HR. I understand most people in TV/media no longer have to take the test.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Prior to joining and in salary negotiations since, I have always found there's very little room to get more out of the company. They present you with an offer and you accept or decline it. I've only ever managed to extract concessions by having another job lined up elsewhere and telling them I'm about to leave.

    Interview Details

    Der Test fand in der Hauptniederlassung von Bloomberg in London statt - alles ist dort ziemlich protzig und "high-tech", einschließlich einer Cafeteria, in der richtig viel los ist. Einige von uns, die sich für Praktikumsplätze in London oder Frankfurt beworben hatten, wurden zu einem Rechnercluster gebracht, wo wir einen Test über grundlegendes Finanzwissen absolvieren mussten - Personlichkeiten, Organisationen etc. Dann gab es noch eine Reihe von Tests, um zu ermitteln, wie gut man Geschichten schriftlich wiedergeben kann.

    Test took place in the main Bloomberg office in London - very swanky and high tech, with a buzzing cafeteria area. A number of us applying for London and Frankfurt Internships were taken to a computer cluster where we completed a test comprising questions on basic financial knowledge - personalities, organizations etc. There were then a series of tests to see how good you were at rewriting stories.
