    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for summer analyst - software engineer intern in San Francisco. Firstly, there is a online coding interview with 6 questions. The questions are related to string operations and Object-oriented programming. Then 3 weeks later, I was told to take the final onsite interviews. Onsite interviews consists of 4 rounds. Two are behavioral, and two are technical. After the onsite interview, I have waited for a month, and haven't received any reply. That's very frustrating.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions: The projects in the resume was went through. Project experience with leadership, trouble shooting, communication skills,e.t.c. Very basic.
      Technical questions: design classes with the interviewer. "get the height of a binary tree". Network related concepts like DNS. Java Web.

    Application

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

    Interview

    A prerecorded video screening. Haven't been notified for a second round yet. This process seems rather slow because it has been almost two months since I applied. The screening does make people fell a bit uncomfortable though, especially when you have to look up to the camera and try to make eye contact with it.

    Interview Questions

    • why BLK/this group; favorite class; why this major; nothing too unexpected but be sure to pay attention to the timing, which could be a challenge.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock in January 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Financial Markets Advisory Group, applied through college career website and then on campus interview with alumni. Asked a lot of market based questions and one question would lead to another and then deep down to test your macroeconomics/finance knowledge. Pretty hard to connect with the interviewer as there was just no behaviorals
