    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Application online, tests, phone call or Skype call (2) and then Assessment center (4 interviews and group project). Two interviews were behavioural, the assessment center was more technical. Overall I found that I was much more comfortable with the people interviewing me here and that is how I knew I wanted to work in BlackRock compared to other firms.

    Easy Interview

    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
