    Simple phone interview. Asked about interests and prior work experience. I received a call and went over my resume. They did a great job in answering my questions but I guess I wasn't the right fit.

    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 online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in May 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening by a data center HR consultant. She asked basic questions to see if I matched a general profile for the role. She passed me along to the HR contact in the main office.

    Second phone screening by the main office HR contact. Similar drill to the first call, but contact actually knew about the role and could answer specific questions. This contact organized the in office interview process.

    The in office interview was very hectic and seemed haphazardly put together. The night before the interview I was advised via email there would be a test, but was provided with no specifics. I had an hour of interviews with several members of the team asking general CV questions and specific questions about the analysis area. I then had a 90min test where I was given a large data set to comb through and write a 5 paragraph "Economist" article.

    After the interview I heard nothing for a week and then only after several emails did they say they were proceeding with another candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Washington, DC) in April 2011.

    Interview

    This was back when BNEF was just NEF. But I had one phone interview, and one in-person interview. The interviews were easy because I already knew the boss that was hiring me. So it may not apply, and the interview as in 2008, not 2011 as there was not an option for 2008.

    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.
