Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Baltimore, MD) in October 2014.

Interview

over the phone, coding on my computer that was being monitored by my interviewer remotely. did the entire call from my college dorm room. The person on the phone had a thick accent so it was difficult to understand the questions he was asking. the interview tends to be about 5 to 6 coding questions and lasts a full hour.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    really smooth—talked to recruiter at university career fair, got a phone interview (hackerrank) afterwards with two questions. got an onsite offer a few weeks later, they fly you out and pay for hotel etc. onsite involves two 2-on-1 technical interviews with engineers. mine switched off asking questions, we probably got through 2-3 questions each time. then was a shorter interview with a group manager, who gave a more open ended design question, then a brief "why Bloomberg" type thing with HR.

    Two technical interviews on my campus, and a behavioral and manager interview on-site. Technical interviews were heavily focused on data-structures. Behavioral and manager interviews were pretty relaxed and felt like conversations.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by on-site interview with developers, manager and HR. The questions were mostly brainteasers, no financial knowledge were required. HR asked general behavioral questions and desired salary, starting date, etc. Was told that they contact me within 2 weeks, but haven't heard back for a while, so I followed up with the internal recruiter and he replied that they were not moving forward with me.
