Easy Interview

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.

    On campus interview followed by on site interview with four 30min interviews. Nothing too tricky, wanted to learn more about markets, what was on my resume, asked some fixed income questions and a brain teaser.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock in October 2015.

    Interview

    The first part of the interview is a video interview, the next round was a Skype call with two BlackRock members who were sitting in separate rooms. They were obviously instant messaging each other throughout the interview and rudely smirking at each other. They were enjoying their conversation more than paying attention to the interview. Disappointing and very distracting. Overall, would not have wanted to work with for the company after that experience.

    Interview

    Online video, weekend superday. Very nice people and there wasn't a lot of difficult quantitative questions. It was formal but doing back to back interviews can be very tiring. Make sure you know a lot about the firm and what it does. You may do a team execise.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. First had a one-way Skype interview to get through to the first round; had the first round interview about a week later. The day before the interview, I received an email that said the interviews were now EST and not PDT. The instructions for the video interview were very ambiguous, and the recruiter talked about how the previous interviewees also had trouble dialing in. Overall was a very unenjoyable process. Everything seemed very impersonal. By the time that I actually interviewed, I was fed up, and had zero interest in working for a company like BlackRock. For such a large and successful company, I was not impressed.
