    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Lansing, MI) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Had to interview for 4 rounds and still waiting for the last round. Low efficiency, months of waiting (first on-campus interview happened around december and it's been 3 months and I'm still waiting for the last round). But it's truly a great company. Apply for sure if you can wait long.

    Interview

    Please note this was my first real interview: I was given a 15 minute screener and was not exactly explained fully what the position entailed. Didn't feel like anything I was saying was received well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone interview with basic screening questions followed by in-house interview with managers from sales and analytics departments and another group work exercise measuring teamwork skills. Questions were easy and basic; the main point to remember is that this is a position oriented toward sales of the Terminal after the training program and the experience working as a help desk operator for the Terminal users. Be ready to show your enthusiasm toward sales and knowledge of the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    This was a horrible interview process. They were very slow and getting back at me and the HR representative who contacted me did not even half of the times available as she originally offered. Finally I figured out a time to interview and when the interview started they asked my GPA. When I did not meet their GPA requirement they said there must have been a mistake and that I could not continue. The interview that was supposed to be an hour lasted 3 min.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    First Round- Phone interview with HR, just know your resume and how your experience can relate to the job description. Know about Bloomberg's history and their competitors, as well as their products. Nothing too difficult, just type out some notes to have in front of you while on the phone, just try not to sound rehearsed. Second Round- they emailed me and gave me 3 options to fly out to NYC and attend a super-day interview. I went on the last day, and there were only 3 other people attending. Shadowed a current employee for 20 minutes, be sure to seem interested in the job. Next, a tour of the building and then a 2 on 1 interview with someone from sales and someone from analytics. Again, just basic questions, know your resume and be prepared to give examples of how you are a good fit for this role. There was also a group exercise where they pair you with another candidate and watch how you work in a team. Personally, I think I was less than enthusiastic about the job, and I think it showed in the interview. If you do well, they have you interview with higher up executives, but I did not make it to the next round. All in all, a good practice experience and great chance to see the famed Bloomberg Office, but be aware that this job is basically just customer service and sales, with opportunities to branch out after the first year. not for everybody, but a good fit for some.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Submitted Resume. They took a while to get back to me. About 3 weeks. Had an initial phone screening interview which was basic questions and interest in Bloomberg. Went to the office for Round 2. Was interviewed by 2 individuals. They ask about your interest in Sales and Bloomberg and what the terminal, products, and competitors are. You have to show that you are interested in economics, sales, business (i.e. took courses in college, follow business news and stats). Have to be enthusiastic about Bloomberg as well. Interview was over at 12pm so i knew i didn't make the next round. Also got to briefly shadow workers. You to engage with them and seem interested.
