    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BlackRock in September 2016.

    Interview

    Having submitted my application, I was immediately asked to complete a "virtual cover letter." You were asked two questions, and had 90 seconds to prep each and then 90 seconds to record each. I would recommend using the prep time to practice reading out your answer, as opposed to what I did which way just sit there in silence! Also prep answers, but only a rough plan, you don't want it to sound to pre-prepared!

    Interview Questions

    • "Why BlackRock and why this division?" and "Why your chosen academic are?"   1 Answer

    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
