Average Interview

Application

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.

    Interview

    Phone interview then got flown out to their office in New York where I had 2 on-site interviews. The phone interview was on HackerRank where I was asked a question about LinkedLists.

    Application

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was intimidating and challenging. I enjoyed meeting with the recruiters and they asked numerous challenging questions. I appreciated the chance to interview for them. It was a technical interview. With several rounds of technical questions. They followed up by asking if I had any questions and concluded with a time a date I should look forward to hearing from them.

    Interview

    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 through college or university. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in September 2015.

    Interview

    I gave the Bloomberg associate my resume at a career fair and got an interview offer. However, the person they sent to do the interview not only was late for the call by 15 minutes, but had an obnoxiously thick Indian accent to the point where I could not understand entire sentences.. I had to repeatedly ask for clarification on what was said.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone interview after applying online. They asked pretty easy questions and I messed up a few of the later questions. Introductory algorithms experience is probably sufficient to do well. Interviewer seemed knowledgeable and fair. Didn't touch too much on anything other than programming experience and skills. The interviewer gave time to ask questions at the end about Bloomberg.

    Interview Questions
