Average Interview

Application

The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Durham, NC).

Interview

It's about 30 mins on the phone. Just regular questions with a focus in past experience related to data analytics, going over resume and stuff like that. Also, interviewer is different from the person arranging the interview.

    The Worst Interview I have ever had!!!
    First time (2016 May), I applied for data analyst position and interviewer told me "Our company is not doing Data Analysis, I wonder why you applied even you don't understand the job role." So I said, "But job description says data analyst." The interviewer said, "Customer will analyze the data and you won't understand!?" I asked, "So do you give raw data to your customer? csv file??"
    The interviewer said, "YES!"

    The second time(2017 Jan), they call me at 4 am. I understand you work 24/7 but please let me know in advance if you are calling me at 4 am.

    Interview

    went through a staffing agency. The agent was very nice but late by 20 minutes. He asked me questions about my resume. We talked about various topics. He really wanted to know were I wanted to go in terms of my career. I told him i want be a commodity analyst. He asked me what I have been doing while looking for job. I told him I mostly read books about economics and philosophy. The worse part of process filling out the paper work which took longer than interview

    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.

    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.
