    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    People from BlackRock came to our school for a special recruiting event.
    We had three rounds of interviews on the same day.
    I was told that it would be more cultural and behavioral interview, but it was just the opposite.
    They just asked my background and moved on with technical questions right away.
    each interview lasted 30 minutes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Abrupt, straight to the point, brief self intro then straight to technical questions, didnt even get to ask about the company. I was not warned about the experience I had so I was taken by surprise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    HR in the company works really slow and doesn't care about any future employee. (A big no if you have other offers)

    Pretty Easy Hackerrank test. Level Easy
    Onsite rounds
    two rounds, during the first interview they asked pretty simple things initially. When I answered all the questions, it looked like they ran out of questions and started asking anything (which I didn't really understand, nor they were able to explain).

    During the second interview, the interviewer was asking anything but regarding job-related questions. It seems interviewer didn't have enough technical knowledge on the questions that they were asking.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Blackrock in Nov 2016. The process is extremely badly designed, they think they are google and thus they take 6-8 interviews, 1st 4 are some junior analyst level interviewers who are just there to get interview experience and thus waste our time, then come the hiring managers who have no idea how to select candidates in their team and in the end they let most of the candidates go with little or no reason. I would reccomend if you have other offers, make sure Blackrock is the last one.
