Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in May 2013.

Interview

It was pretty fast and in my opinion fair as well. Though the HR is very aggressive. The interviewer is not educated and since he is in the system for so long he gets to conduct the interviews. All they use is google before interviewing a candidate which in my opinion is very lame. They judge you on the basis of your book knowledge and not practical experience.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock in November 2011.

    Interview

    I was studying abroad and applied online to BlackRock because the deadline was coming to a close. I applied for the Graduate Program for BlackRock, and was accepted for a first round interview. Questions were harder than most of the other interviews I have had, because you would actually need current information in order to stay on top of the interview questions. Interviewer was nice, and the interview lasted for about 45 minutes.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Received phone call - went through screening rounds with HR and some mid-level people. Interviews were both personality based and ask some concept type questions to understand technical skills. Asked back for interviews with more high level people - the questions were even more about fit and personality, although high level concept questions were asked again. Final round was with Sr level people and followed the same basic principles.
