    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    I got a code assessment to solve. I did well and then moved to next step which is an invitation to interview event. I was surprised that they offered no reimbursement for travel. They expected me to travel from DC to Seattle and pay for the expenses myself!!! Ridiculous right! Of course, I refused. What kind of company expects applicants to pay around $1000 to get interviewed?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    Interview process started with Hackerank. It has three problems to be solved, there was a time limit. Problems were neither easy not hard. I spent more time on first and second problems to make the solution efficient. So not too much time was available for the third one.
    Tip: watch the time. I cleared the test with some tests failing due to timeouts.

    On-site has three steps
    1. First round several junior folks ask typical design and software engineering questions.
    2. Round two, senior engineers/team leads
    3. Round three, hiring manger interviews.
