Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BlackRock.

Interview

Interview was fairly straight-forward. Applied through college job posting, interviewed with HR, then a phone interview with manager and director, then came in for in-person interview with the team. Questions were mostly behavioral and about my background and previous experiences.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and received first round interview with the team. I am supposed to interview with two team members at different times. The first one was 40 minutes late but the interview was very smooth and easy. There were some standard behavior questions with a brain teaser. The other one skipped the first scheduled time and asked me provide other available times. The same thing happened four times. He or she skipped every scheduled interview, then emailed me and set up a new one for all four times. I am not sure why this happened but I am deeply disappointed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview happened in december 2016. Two In-Person interviews. Both went really well. Interviewers were very happy to find a person with exactly the same experience they are looking for. Both Interviewers said they will extending the offer, but one reason they didn't hired me is because my work experience is not USA. They finally went with an In-experienced local candidate than hiring a experience professional. Although i never worked in US, but all my career i directly worked with USA Clients and people. i'm not sure if black rock provides equal employer opportunities but it didn't happened with me. This is pure racism. Disgusting people with racist attitude

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    First round interview followed by final rounds. Required virtual cover letter in the form of a video after online application submission. Process was very fast, first round and final round was in the same few days. Met with two people during the first round and four during the final rounds. Only the final rounds took place at the firm. Everyone was very nice. Not very technical. All technicals about investments/market/investing.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Longest part of the process was between sending in application online and hearing back for the interview. I had 3 back-to-back in-person interviews, 30 min ea, at office; suspect it was a shorter process than most other reviews here because they were hiring off-cycle instead of in a cohort.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (Newark, DE) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 4 interviewers, including 2 analysts, one associate, and one vice president. The whole interview process took about 2 hours, and each for 30 minutes. They all firstly let me do a self-introduction. Then, they asked several finance-related questions, such as durations, bonds, and interest rates. The position I applied is about the green package, and one of the interviewer told me that the candidate for this position had to be very hardworking and quick-learning.

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Very pleasant. Everyone was really friendly and they made me feel comfortable. Most of the questions were on the current industry trends. It felt more like a conversation and not really an interview.
