Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

Interview

I interviewed at the New York office. Interviewers were pretty nice and asked a combination of behavioral and technical questions. Make sure you can talk about the market and have some basic understanding about statistics. Having some computer science background would be a plus for the researcher role, so just be aware.

    I did the application in October 2015 and I have received the first response in the middle of December, where I was invited to do a Pre-recorded video interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    You first go through the recorded interview online, which is easier than you would think. I thought I did horribly but I just talked about my hedge fund class and ETFs we were trading. There is a video interview with one of the employees, which is very relaxed as well. If you pass that, they fly you to them for a 4-5 hour interview. You first eat lunch with the analysts and the other interns. After, you have separate interviews with Managing Directors, which were former Lehman Brothers employees.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a video interview over a skype-like service. They asked me behavioral questions. It was very based on my resume and past experience. I was interviewed by a second-year analyst. I felt like I was under pressure the entire time and she was waiting for me to make a mistake. To be fair, it was one of my first interview experiences so it may have been more difficult for me than others.

    Interview

    Interview on campus for the tech internship. The interviewer was friendly, but didn't ask really anything about me, just explained the position and BlackRock. Then we worked through a problem of how I would approach organizing a set of data. Overall, was a good experience, took them a week to offer a second round

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from the recruiter about a week later. The internship position was to be part time in the local office and we scheduled a phone interview in the next couple days.

    Phone interview was pretty easy and the interviewer was very nice. Just talked about qualifications and what the job would entail.

    I followed up with the phone interview a week later and she told me that I didn't get the position. Though the later steps of the interview process I remember would be two more interviews with one with an actual graduate of my university and another with a manager. Pay was going to be a little low though.
