Data Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Princeton, NJ) in March 2019.

Interview

Applied through employee referral. They got back to me in two days. First round was a video interview. 4 easy questions, but can be difficult in the sense that you want to make a point in a very succint manner because you only get 1 minute per each questions. Questions were on glassdoor, like Why are you interested in the Fintech Role (just talked about why I was interested in data analyst positione because I didn't know what they were talking about), Tell me about a time you had to make an informed decision using data, etc.

Got invited to second round like three days later. On-site "Super Day". Super Day had three "logical assessments". First was a group activity where you were divided into two different teams and had to debate supporting a side. Think they were trying to determine how you work in groups. Then, it was 11 multiple choice questions that consisted of Java, SQL, basic statistics, etc. A basic understanding of coding languages and statistics suffice. Finally, it was a 2 on 1 interview (although you really just interact with one interviewer) and you had to discuss/suggest ways to improve internal workflow/processes of the company with regards to particular projects. This assessment was probably the most challenging for most.
