    Hiring was straightforward and through a temp agency. Only was asked basic questions and went through a background check. The temp agency reached out to me via a job board and after meeting with them and having a phone interview with my team leader at Bloomberg I had one more face to face at Bloomberg and started the following week.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Intense process with many rounds. You were not told how many people you'd meet ahead of time so you were waiting to hear at the end of each round whether you were done or moving on. HR was very responsive in terms of scheduling the interview and following up.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Skillman, NJ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The interview is largely about cultural fit. They will not ask you much about financial markets or knowledge, rather they will focus on your experience working in teams and your achievements at past jobs/internships. They are all friendly and unintimidating. You should have knowledge of Bloomberg's product and its competitors. The interview was not particularly difficult, the in person interviews are very similar to the phone interview.

    Interview

    Interesting process. Focused solely on behavorial. Interviewers very impartial and one was even angry from the get go. Think it was very different from other positions like Thomson Reuters and other companies in industries. Seemed less professional and extensive. Would prep hard for culture and focus on why you chose them for this job and not the other companies.
