    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.
    During the interview I had 30 seconds for reading the question and think before the video recording started.
    For each question I had 1 minute and half to respond the question.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    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.
