Global Data Analyst Interview

Interview

I did a walk in interview at the Boston Career Forum. It was about 15-20 minutes. It was very informal and there weren’t any surprises. Two members of the company interviewed me, I think the first person was someone from a different department asking general questions and another person was from the department that worked with global data analysis.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in July 2017.

    Interview

    The first round is video interview. You can find the questions easily online and prepare for them. The second round is phone interview, the HR (from HK office) called me once but I missed the call. I called back immediately but no reply. I rescheduled the interview, but did not receive any phone call at the scheduled time. So I had to reschedule for a second time. The phone interview is not very difficult, but it is the first job interview I got. I spent so much time introduce myself, this left a bad impression to the interviewer.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2016.

    Interview

    The process took more than a month when it could have been done in a much shorter time. The HR is a bit slow. The phone interview was not hard.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Princeton, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Many rounds to this position. The first round that no one talks about actually getting your resume selected. So if you're reading this then you probably did, so congrats on that.

    Now for the second round, what they had me do was video record responses to some questions (What are our products, when you made a process efficient, what coding languages you know) I think there were three or four so definitely have answers ready for those questions. Research Bloomberg's products (its actually listed on their site, very easy to do). Kinda weird though talking to the camera and stuff but they expect you to be a little nervous so don't be too timid.

    After I did that round, I waited and waited for a response --anything. It wasn't until a MONTH later they contacted me to schedule a video conference with 2 team leaders. I was pleasant surprised as I thought I was dead in the water so if you don't be surprised if you don't hear back for weeks. Anyway, this round was tricky for me because the way the recruiter worded her email, it seemed it would be a question about fit and behavioural based scenarios. I was wrong. It was 90% technical, going over my projects and resume (not hard but I was thrown off a bit). Anyway, know your resume inside out can't stress that enough. I did pretty poorly in this section so I really think this is as far as I go in the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Depending on the format of the first screen (video or phone) you could get a different set of questions. If its video-recorded then the questions I provided above will suffice. If its phone it'll be questions about why Bloomberg, why this particular role, blah blah so have a value prop ready to go.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Princeton, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First was a video interview that was pretty straight forward - why you want the job, a project you were proud of, etc. Some curveball questions were how would you explain the Bloomberg Terminal to someone with no financial knowledge. After the video interview screening, you're invited to a superday interview, which was a mashup of a group case study, casual conversations over food, a one on one interview, and two case studies on your own.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I got first round phone interview and then a technical test, the next two rounds were video interviews with team leader and director. Bloomberg is very efficient to process the whole interview taking around 1 month for those four rounds and results.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    Took roughly two months between the first video interview, the analyst interview, super day and final interview. Easy process overall and doesn’t feel like traditional interview process. Stand out in the debate section and don’t mess up the logistics test or the process improvement section.

    Interview

    pre-recorded interview, 30min video conference, super day, final round interview. The steps listed are in chronological order and the difficulty increased throughout the process in a linear fashion. Beautiful campus with accommodations for candidates traveling 50 miles or more. included breakfast and lunch during the super day which was the only part that was on campus
