    Got invitation to interview on campus
    I applied for multi assets and alternative investments based on my background but was assigned to interview for quant based equity +fixed income and trading/ Liquidites team. This mismatch truly deprived me of the opportunity to impress them with my background as they were specifically looking for candidates with quants and IT background.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    this interview was on hirevue. It was a recorded interview in which I was asked two questions (one at a time) and given about 2 minutes to prepare an answer for each one. you could not rerecord your answers, once they 90 seconds or was up the answer was submitted and it advanced to the next one. they gave two sample questions for you to practice with and you could advance to the real questions whenever you wanted. I received a follow up email about a month later asking me to do the next step- two more questions on hirevue. Awaiting an answer from that.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First did the online cover letter. This is a recorded video cover letter. A week and a half later, I was called into their New York Office. The Campus Recruiting team is very good about making the process as efficient and short as possible. Went for an interview in their new York office. Very conversational and more behavioral. The first day was more so conversational. The second Day was a normal super day. They were very great. Some technical questions but overall a great experience.

    1st round was a video recording where a question will pop up and it gives you 30 seconds to prepare and 2 minutes to answer. Before that, they give you the opportunity to practice recording your answers with unlimited tries, but only give you 1 attempt at answering the official questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Process was three steps with a couple weeks in between each step. First round is a self-recorded response to a couple questions. Second round is a video interview with someone in the division you're applying for (but not necessarily the location). Last round is an on-site superday with four back to back interviews. Overall, I loved my experience with the process. I highly recommend applying for multiple positions, seeing as you can proceed through the pipeline in multiple roles until the final round. People were very nice and genuine, but they would challenge you on certain responses to see how deep your answers go. My advice would be to go above and beyond to prepare for each round and just be honest and genuine during interviews. Don't strive to impress them, strive to be yourself and let your personality and resume speak for themselves.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First round campus interview with a PAG director. The interview questions were mostly behavioral and random. Some market related and some specifically about company/PAG. The interviewer emphasized the importance of tech skills and previous internship experience. Used lots of business lingo. He had too high expectations from a college student with no experience. I felt intimidated.
