    Digital Video Producer, Editor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    At the end of my video interview with the hiring manger he told me he would send me an email with his email address so we could talk further. Yipee! I made it to next round! Um, no. I didn't hear from him so after a couple of weeks checked with HR on the status of my candidacy. I was told they had chosen another candidate. WTF, why would you tell someone you're going to continue with their candidacy then pull the rug out from under them? Also, if you tell someone you're going to get back in touch with them, even if it's to tell them they're no longer being considered, you should follow through. Not doing so was on one level really unprofessional and on another incredibly rude and inconsiderate.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    HR in the company works really slow and doesn't care about any future employee. (A big no if you have other offers)

    Pretty Easy Hackerrank test. Level Easy
    Onsite rounds
    two rounds, during the first interview they asked pretty simple things initially. When I answered all the questions, it looked like they ran out of questions and started asking anything (which I didn't really understand, nor they were able to explain).

    During the second interview, the interviewer was asking anything but regarding job-related questions. It seems interviewer didn't have enough technical knowledge on the questions that they were asking.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Blackrock in Nov 2016. The process is extremely badly designed, they think they are google and thus they take 6-8 interviews, 1st 4 are some junior analyst level interviewers who are just there to get interview experience and thus waste our time, then come the hiring managers who have no idea how to select candidates in their team and in the end they let most of the candidates go with little or no reason. I would reccomend if you have other offers, make sure Blackrock is the last one.
