Financial Product Sales and Analytics Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in January 2017.

Interview

I attended the Super Day for this internship, and was very impressed with the efficiency and enjoyment of my entire experience applying to Bloomberg. After about two weeks after submitting my application, I heard back from the HR team to submit a video screen. Then a week later I had my phone interview, and a week after that I had my Super Day. The Bloomberg office in New York is truly incredible, and my interviewers were friendly and encouraging. Although I didn't get this position, I am still highly considering Bloomberg for future career prospects.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Starts with a phone call that is very rudimentary and basic. It lasted about 10-15 minutes and they ask you simple behavioral questions. Told me during the phone call that I will be invited to the Super Day at their office. Did the Super Day the next week in San Francisco. Got an office tour, did a a couple mock scenarios with the Bloomberg Terminal product, then did two back to back 30 minute interviews with an Analytics manager and a Sales manager. These were more intensive. Now waiting to hear back for a third round interview that is with a high up manager in the Analytics Department.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through website, a recruiter contacted me and set up a 30-minute phone interview. The interview went smooth and she told me I would move to the second round by the end of the phone call. After a week, another recruiter contacted me to set up a video conference with two team leaders. One from sales team and one from analytics, they were on time and asked basic questions, i.e. why Bloomberg, how can you sell the terminal, etc. But I don't think I did well in the conference since I really can't sell a terminal without being trained to know all the aspect of it.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Bloomberg?
      Let's role play, I'm using a competitor's terminal, talk to me and let me change my mind.

    Interview

    1 phone call and followed by a super day with 2 30 minute interviews. Process was fairly straightforward and the interview questions we're almost all behavioral. No prior finance experience is necessary, but it is important to know what is happening in terms of finance-related current events. Also know the difference between the Analytics department and the sales department at the company.
