    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and received first round interview with the team. I am supposed to interview with two team members at different times. The first one was 40 minutes late but the interview was very smooth and easy. There were some standard behavior questions with a brain teaser. The other one skipped the first scheduled time and asked me provide other available times. The same thing happened four times. He or she skipped every scheduled interview, then emailed me and set up a new one for all four times. I am not sure why this happened but I am deeply disappointed.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Nicely designed, 4 back-to-back interviews, mixed behavior and technical questions. You should prepare a lot for Java concept questions such as the difference between Concurrent HashMap and synchronized HashMap and perhaps low-level knowledge.
    Asked about your background related to finance, why BlackRock? What do you want to get from BlackRock? Things like these.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through the university career entry. After the application, I immediately got the email saying I have to finish a 'virtual cover letter' in three days. And the digital interview is recorded and about 5 mins long. Only two questions were asked about why the company and why your major. I got the reply the day after saying the positions have already filled out and no more interviews for that job. That's kinda disappointing and confusing.

    Interview

    Applied online (in October). Have to submit a digital cover letter. Two months later, I got an invite to have a HireVue video interview with a VP on the team. After this, I was flow out for a Superday and interviewed for a position with three other candidates. Interviews were all behavioral and fit; however, there were a few general market questions with our opinions. Felt like a strong candidate but didn't receive an offer based on affirmative actions initiatives (feedback I got).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock in January 2017.

    Interview

    interviewed by 5 different people and each for about 30 minutes. No finance questions just general/behavioral questions and some brain teasers. Having general knowledge of the financial industry and Black Rock as a company certainly helps. Be able to talk about yourself and your resume in detail. Four business days later, still don't know whether get an offer.
