    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    Hiring process went very long and interviews were technical questions based on purely resume and educational background. First round and second round seemed similar, just that in second round there were two interviewrs in video call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied to the position through my campus portal and got invited to an online code screen within the week. There was no time limit on the screen, just 4 java questions which were not too difficult. The most time consuming part was breaking down the raw input.

    Two months later I was invited for a super day/in-person interview. There were 4 interviews, 2 technical and 2 behavioral. I had 2 very personable interviewers and i thought my interviews went well. However, the interviewer for one of the behavioral interviews seemed disinterested in the interview from the moment he stepped in. He was on his phone all the time and barely paid attention to my responses. He did not seem to have interest in getting to know me and just went through a disconnected laundry list of online interview questions. The only response he paid slight attention to, was a technical question.

    I had competing offers to respond to so I tried reaching out to the recruiter on multiple occassions but never got a response. I heard back via an automated email, three weeks after the interview.

    Overall, I had a great time interviewing with most of the interviewers and the screen was fun. However, I found the process slow, had no point of contact, and had the most unprofessional interview experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone screen with two interviewers. The first guy was pretty cool and nice. The second interviewer was less than tactful. His first question was why I was applying to this position even though I live in another state and I should apply to another company. His demeanor suggested that he already rejected me before any questions started. This experience ruined the entire interview for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It starts with a digital cover letter where you have to record yourself. They ask two basic questions (why blackrock? etc2). After that, there was a video interview with the usual behavioral questions. After that I got invited to a superday where I spoke with 4 different people. Overall, everyone's really nice and it was a pleasant experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock in February 2018.

    Interview

    I initially applied for a Wealth Advisory National Accounts position, however, after a 2 virtual interviews (1 with a VP and 1 with a Director) and a super day (All VPs) I was told I didn’t make the cut. Despite that, they asked me if I would like to be considered for a Wealth Advisory Sales position, to which I immediately said yes. I completed the super day interviews (All VPs) and was offered the position the next day. It was a long, exhausting but very rewarding process. All recruiters and POC individuals were very professional and apologetic for the delays.
