Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)).

Interview

Very great people who interviewed me for the role. All of them have been gone and the interviewer this time is really tough. Also lots of agencies are complaining about it. And very robust.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BlackRock (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    1st Interview - very informal , VP lead the chat through resume and asked some competency based questions. Analyst took notes - both very pleasant.

    2 weeks later - HR offered me a different job - I said I would rather wait to hear back from the 1st.

    The following day I was invited to 2nd interview with Director and VP. They told me it would last 30 minutes, it lasted 20. Very informal , chatted over CV - said I would hear in couple days.

    I chased recruiter on a weekly basis for an update and they gave ever excuse you could think of. 3 weeks later I got the response that they went with someone else. They blamed the delay on holiday season.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process went well. BlackRock interviews are different and less structured than other financial services companies. It made it easy to tell my story and control the direction of the interview. I would give myself an A rating for the interview. Unfortunately, when I heard back about a second round, BlackRock informed me that rather than not being selected for a second round, they were not looking to fill the position any more.
