    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was fast tracked to the assessment centre after not getting the role that I originally applied for. It consisted of 2 back to back 30 minute interviews each with two interviewers.
    The interviews were relaxed with motivational and competency based questions. There was also a technical "pop quiz" at the end of one of them which weren't too difficult, I did get a couple out of 6 questions wrong though.

    Interview Questions

    • CV specific questions, what is going on in the markets that blackrock should be aware of? What is the current BoE base rate? What is the ftse100 trading at? Name two other indexes. What is a basis point? Difference between fund and etf? What is a db and dc pension fund?   Answer Question

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Standard telephone interview were i was asked about my motivation for the FIG Business Manager Associate role and generally about my background.
    The interview was a week later with the global head of the Financial institutions Group, who asked very unusual questions about my background. All questions were fairly intrusive and related to my personal life, and intimate parts of my personal relationship with my family and parents. It's not possible to prepare for this interview since there was not a single competency or knowledge based interview.
    I never received any feedback from the interview from HR, neither in form of a phone call, personal email or even automated email. I tired contacting them myself but was unsuccessful.
