    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    First interview was on-campus. Questions included "why blackrock" and "walk me through a dcf." Second round was at their San Francisco office, consisting of four rounds. Questions were varied. There were brainteasers, strict technical questions (what is convexity? why is it important?), questions on market currents (what is QE? what is it supposed to be doing to the bond market/economy? what is actually occurring?) , theoretical questions on economics, current events (interview took place during Tunisia/Egypt uprisings) , and very specific questions about where certain indices were at (Dow Jones/S&P/etc).

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    I applied online, no online tests. The division was FMA.
    1st step: HireVue video interview. Three basic competency questions.
    2nd step: online live video interview. The interviewers were an analyst and a VP. Very detailed questions on past job experiences, general competency, news about BlackRock. Very specific technical questions. The case study is a math problem.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    4 interviews, all competency based. Took place on the same day along side a written question about the motivation to work at the firm. There was also a presentation about the firm from a current graduate in which some candidates let themselves down with unnecessary questions which stood out to the manager.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    1st round - phone call from HR
    2nd round - VC interview

    Was quite rigorous but not many technical questions were asked. mainly background checks and knowing your personality.

    Phone call was with the HR manager based in India. She asked basic questions and was rather straightforward.

    Second round was a VC interview with a senior associate and a line manager. took about 1 hr for the interview.
