    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward. I applied online and then was contacted in about a week to schedule a HireVue interview. Once that was completed, I was asked to to a Skype videoconference call interview with a current analyst. Then, I was invited to the onsite Super Day interview in NYC where I had three interviews.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    After initial applications, there's an immediate 'virtual cover letter' (video interview) with competency questions. The next stage is a video interview 2x 30 mins with current analysts in the division. Finally, there is an AC based in Blackrock offices. This consists of 3/4 interviews followed by a group exercise. Mainly experiences and competency based, but it can get very technical depending on your interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you faced a difficult situation and how you dealt with it   Answer Question
    • Explain as you would to a 5-year-old, what is a spreadsheet?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Step 1: Online Application & Hirevue Cover Letter
    Step 2: 1st Round Interview - 2x 30 min - 2 different interviewers

    Did the online application + cover letter (they give you 5 days to complete it if i remember correctly) in November, and didn't hear about a first round interview till March. Got an AC invitation two days after my interview.

    Really kind interviewers, unexpectedly chill but definitely felt the need to deliver for each question.
