Applied online. After applying, I had to do a virtual cover letter which is basically 2 behavioral questions. Then next round is online technical assessment. You can choose from Coding or Statistics. Both were reasonably challenging. Waiting for feedback

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock in September 2016.

    Interview

    Online interview through hirevue, which is a very modern way to do, saving lots of time for companies. But it is really awkward for me to talk with a camera while you have to pretend you have eye contact. And the timing is set at 90 secoonds, you video will be automatically cut, so should be really cautious abou this issue. Try several times before the real attempt.

    Interview Questions

    • Very simple and basic background question like why Blackrock and why this position.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (Princeton, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process I felt was drawn out. There was a lot of time between interviews, with little communication. I applied online before the October deadline, heard back 3 weeks later, had a virtual interview, 6 weeks later was invited into the office for super-day interviews. I enjoyed the interview process throughout, although there might be some bias as I really want to work at BlackRock.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview

    4 hour online interview for the first round. Basically making sure you know basic object-oriented concepts and how to parse strings, but FAR too long in length. Then they bring you to an onsite interview. The questions are incredibly basic. I'm pretty good at technical interviews and answered everything without flaw, but still got rejected. The recruiter I had was impersonal and took forever to answer any questions. After interviewing in person, I never got so much as a rejection email and had to call them to find out I was rejected. No idea why. Only one of the four developers I talked to seemed even remotely interested in their job or performing the interview. Offices are kinda bland on the inside, nothing like any other software company you could work for. Overall, I wouldn't recommend even applying unless you REALLY want to work there.

    Interview Questions

    • Super easy stuff. Implement fizz buzz, then do it without a modulus operator. What is the Unix Epoch. A couple other questions I forgot, but they weren't difficult. Basic data structure questions. You get to meet with one of the directors who will ask you a personality question or two. Every single interviewer will ask you "Why BlackRock?" so be prepared. If you're reading this, you're probably prepared enough already.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied by submitting my resume on their website. I was then contacted about a video interview. A couple days later I received an email about a SuperDay the following week. The SuperDay was 4.5 hours - 4 interviews and 1 case/presentation. The interviews were very relaxed. It almost feel more like a conversation. Everyone was really nice and interested in what I had to share.
