    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (Princeton, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process I felt was drawn out. There was a lot of time between interviews, with little communication. I applied online before the October deadline, heard back 3 weeks later, had a virtual interview, 6 weeks later was invited into the office for super-day interviews. I enjoyed the interview process throughout, although there might be some bias as I really want to work at BlackRock.

      What are some market conditions that interest you?
      How do you stay on top of the markets?

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Up to the super day, the process was very fast. short hirevue interview to ask why black rock why your major why acs. Super day had a group case study which was quite pointless, and 4 back to back interviews that questioned some finance knowledge and a lot of behavioural questions.
    Interview is not necessarily difficult but they really look for a good "fit" it seems like.
    Been more than a month since I had the final round super day and they still have not told me I have been rejected.
