    Client Solutions Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Three round of skype interviews, back to back. Very chill interviewers, just like casual chats. But cannot tell if they like you or not. Very open to talk and happy to answer your questions. But HR does not get back to you (It's been 3 weeks for me and I still have not heard back so I assume I am rejected)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Online interview. On-site interviews in SF 2 weeks later that included one round (mostly behavioral) on Thurs with 2 interviewers and got a call for the final round on Friday with 4 interviewers. I really liked the team and the innovation-oriented culture. Final round was definitely way more technical. Afterwards, I waited for a week before getting the offer through HR's phone call on the following Monday.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was selected to attend a Superday interview at Wilmington, DE office. The interview consisted of six 30-min one-on-one chats with managers from different teams. The interviewers were nice and helpful. However, there was no response from them in four weeks after the interview. When I followed up for the third time, they finally responded with a rejection. It was 32 days after the interview! The HR is poorly organized.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    Did the hirevue where I recorded a video clip by looking into the webcam. Just had to make sure to fix my eyesight around the camera to simulate contact. I am pretty sure someone told me there's algorithms built into hirevue to calculate how times you look down.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who set up two skype interviews for me. The first Interviewer was one hour late and very unprofessional during the interview. She was obviously very sleepy at the time. The second interviewer was even worse. He did not show up on the first day and they sent me an email one hour later for another interview at the same time on the next day. It turned out the interviewer decided not to show up again the second day as well. Then they sent an email saying they are really sorry but they are very interested in me and wanted to reschedule at the same time on the third day. The interviewer finally showed up 30 minutes past the scheduled time on the third day.
