Summer Analyst Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock.

Interview

About two weeks after submitting my application, I was invited to San Francisco for a 2-day superday to interview for 3 teams. This was odd, because I had applied for only 2 positions, both in New York, but the change was not a big deal. First day consisted of a 30 minute interview for each team. Was notified that I had made it to the next round later that evening. The next day, I had 4 30-minute interviews for each team I advanced with. Interviews ranged from behavioral to technical. Most involved a walk-through of something on my resume.

    It happened across Hirevue, and asked two questions about Blackrock with 5 minutes to prepare in between. The whole process was pretty fast but I'm still waiting for the result to come out for about one month.

    Interview

    Applied online. Online interview. On-site interviews in SF 2 weeks later that included one round (mostly behavioral) on Thurs with 2 interviewers and got a call for the final round on Friday with 4 interviewers. I really liked the team and the innovation-oriented culture. Final round was definitely way more technical. Afterwards, I waited for a week before getting the offer through HR's phone call on the following Monday.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through CFN.
    6 employees from the Aladdin Service team interviewed me. I applied to the Tokyo office, so the interview was conducted in both English and Japanese ( it was a Eng - Jpn - Eng - Jpn ... kind of order so in the end it was hard for me to speak logically in either language).
    The questions were mainly behavioral, but there were also some brain teasers. The brain teaser itself wasn't that difficult but they gave no time to think, so it was stressful.
    Despite the intensity, everyone was super nice.

    Interview Questions

    • Why BlackRock, Why Aladdin, your knowledge about BlackRock, etc.   Answer Question
