    Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Blackrock in May 2017. They think they are google and thus they take 7-8 interviews. First, they took 3 rounds ( 1 coding, 2 phone technical interviews) and then said that the position has been filled via internal reference. Then they told me to that they will interview me for a different team. Video technical interviews for the whole day with 8 people one on one based in NY and Wilmington. Then they told that still Hiring manager is remaining and he will be available day after tomorrow. Then one more round with the hiring manager for 50 mins. Then they emailed me that reviews were very positive and then vanished. I emailed them to at least give a rejection email but still no reply from them. It sucks as I wasted like 5 days with them. At least I deserve a general automatic email confirming rejection. Very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR via email about 2 weeks after submitting application. The email asked to provide a range of times/dates for setting up a first round virtual interview. The interviewer was a leader in the organization and was able to provide a lot of detail about the role (which turned out to be very data focused/report heavy) before asking me to walk through my resume. HR followed up a few days later regarding a second round. Declined second round interview offer, which would have been in person. Process was very professional and timely.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BlackRock (Wilmington, DE) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview happened in december 2016. Two In-Person interviews. Both went really well. Interviewers were very happy to find a person with exactly the same experience they are looking for. Both Interviewers said they will extending the offer, but one reason they didn't hired me is because my work experience is not USA. They finally went with an In-experienced local candidate than hiring a experience professional. Although i never worked in US, but all my career i directly worked with USA Clients and people. i'm not sure if black rock provides equal employer opportunities but it didn't happened with me. This is pure racism. Disgusting people with racist attitude
