Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in June 2016.

Interview

I applied through LinkedIn and received an email from Manager after one month. First round was hacker rank test. This test many topics like JavaScript, Java, HTML, CSS, Threads in Java and UML Class diagrams. We also have to upload our any previous written code for any assignment or project. After some days, got the positive feedback from the Manager and asked to schedule 5 video interviews. 4 out of these 5 interviews were technical. They covered topics from core java, design questions, Dynamic programming, threads, Algorithms, Spring and technologies mentioned in my resume. Last video interview was with HR and we discussed about the BlackRock business model and the position roles and responsibilities.
After this I called onsite for another two rounds. First round was technical and second round was both technical and HR type questions.
After this I was called to set up one more video interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    1st round is the HireVue Coding test. 7 Java based questions and 2 Video recorded questions. the solution of the next question depends on how you answered the first. So do not skip any and runn all the test cases perfectly

    Interview Questions

    • Questions start with implementation of basic split function in Java. Remember all questions are somewhat linked and you are asked to copy your code in a local editor as you might use them later. The difficulty increases with every question. There is no time limit for writing this test and you can finish it in multiple sittings. The questions weren't intended to test your data structure skills but your Java skills.   4 Answers

    Interview

    1 short on-campus technical interview lasted about 30 minutes (interviewer came late). Called back for superday about a week later. Super day consisted of 4 back-to-back interviews 45 minutes each, 2 were technical and 2 were behavioral. However, I know different people got different combinations of technical/behavioral interviews too.

    I had an email with a recruiter to set up a phone call with a senior engineer. After that initial phone screen I heard nothing back from the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online, and I was invited for the first round telephone interview after about a week. The phone interview was entirely behavioral and I think it went alright. I am waiting for the results for that, which should take about a week. The next round should involve an in-person technical interview. Since I am still waiting for the results, I have indicated that I did not get an offer.
