    Interview

    Good - questions about my background, past work experiences, etc. I started with a phone screen and then had two onsite interviews. When on site I met with 3-4 people each time and had lunch with two junior employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, then phone interview with Manager. In person interview with Manager. Then called back for another interview with a manager from another department who told me he wasn't part of the hiring process. Knew I wasn't getting the position at that time!! But all in all, not bad process. Just wished they didn't waste my time with the last interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Almost 12 interviews because there was no job opening at the time. The questions, and questioners were indicative of something I would later learn about the culture: people here are aggressive and like to see how you respond to being pushed around.

    Many of the questions were general conversational questions about what I had done before. But many of them were clearly attempts to test the thickness of my skin. Almost none of the questions were technical.

    Application

    I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Washington, DC) in October 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process lasted a long time, which seemed to indicate not a great internal process. There were numerous people to meet, but because of scheduling it was impossible to see more than one person at a time.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Got a call at 9:10 in the morning - they dont want their people sleeping in, I guess. The interviewer was pretty courteous, very nice. First she asked me to run through my resume. I started with my most recent experience, since it was most apropos. She asked what I knew about the division I was applying for (renewable energies) and I did have a chance to look back over the job posting as well as study up on the "Bloomberg Philosophy" before the phone interview so I was able to fill in some details. She didn't seem too demanding on in-depth knowledge here, so that's fair. However, seemed glad that I knew something.

    Most of the questions afterwards were generally about my finance and marketing experience and clarification questions running through my history to see how my career developed. Also,

    After the interview she asked for a writing sample - the more quantitative the better. Unfortunately, I didn't have anything terribly quantitative on file so sent her something with both quant and qual, um, qualities.
    She also mentioned that I might have to resubmit my application since something went wrong with their system the first time around and it had automatically asked me the wrong questions.
