    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Chaotic! HR does not know what they are doing and are disorganized. Full of miscommunication and last minute cancellations & rescheduling. They even kept wavering with the interview decision communications. Very unprofessional on the scheduling and logistics part. Interviews are normal. Mostly leetcode medium and easy difficulty questions and some OOPS trivia questions.

    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.

    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.
