    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in December 2010.

    Interview

    Was contacted by phone. After initial phone screening having standard riddles and algo questions, I was invited to an on-site interview. There were many interviewers asking a lot of questions and didn't let you finish, constantly switching from one question to the other. Took about 7 hours. Overall it doesn't seem as a good place to work at.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    After screen test was invited for an interview. Really impressive building, very fancy environment, 1 tour of questions was easy, it's the 2 where i screwed up. They asked me some questions related to TCP Ip protocol, I can't even remember what exact quetions were but I coudn't answer. I didn't expect much from that interview. In a week of time I got a phone call from them that I am not a person they were lookign for...

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2009.

    Interview

    We went through all kinds of data structures, i.e., linkedlist, array, binary tree, binary search tree, hash tables... In particular, he asked me whether there is a place that binary search tree could beat hash tables. And then I was asked a lot of detailed questions on various aspects of C/C++. In the end, I was thrown a prime number algorithm question, which I didn't figure out.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in September 2007.

    Interview

    Questions on C pointers, data structures, algorithms, Java, university final year project, a few maths puzzles. Was made to feel quite uncomfortable, I guess to handle how I coped with pressure. Felt a little unfair as I feel it was an unrealistic sort of pressure compared with what you would get on the job, i.e., less personal.
