Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

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.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR. Phone chat with hiring manager. Flew out to job location office for interviews with several team members over the course of 3 hours.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock in February 2011.

    Interview

    First interview was with HR recruiter, consisting of usual questions on career history, expectations, etc. Next step interview was with the direct reporting manager and one of the colleague with technical questions. Third interview was with mid-level management, discussing more on the high-level perspective, as well as introduction on the company's background. And final interview was with the HR recruiter again to wrap up with the package, starting date, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • So long as we have the technical expertise, all the technical questions should not be an issue. However, the question regarding the strategy might be tricky, as it is heavily related to the current situation of the firm or the team themselves.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Internal recruiters call for screening. This is followed by interview with team and then with direct manager and their leadership team. The entire process is less than a month long.

    Negotiation

    Not much room. This is made clear.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview screening with HR is literally to see if you want to be submitted to the team. Once the team approves, they setup the in office interview. You have to meet with pretty much half the team at the very least as well as a few people from related teams. I interviewed with 12-13 people total for 20 mins each over a span of 3 days. They seem to ask the same questions and then at the end of the process they decide if you are going to be easy to work with yet know your stuff and get stuff done.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was short because they have a set salary for how many years experience for your title level. Was not able to get even a small increase.
