    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Princeton, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was on-campus and was a brief 10-minute discussion with a current employee. Very informal, talked about a typical analyst's day at Bloomberg. After hearing back around 3 days later, it was followed by an on-site interview which started out with an orientation for Bloomberg. The main interview was 3 30-minute conversations with current analysts. Again very informal and just talked about past internships/projects. Everyone was very friendly the entire way.

    Phone interview with HR followed by an in-house interview which consisted of two half hour interviews both of which were 2 interviewers and me. They are really friendly at Bloomberg. No drug test at any point.

    • Mostly behavioral questions. I think I was only asked one question related to the markets.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    A HR rep contacted me with times that work for me. She called me in the beginning of the time window that worked for me. The interviewer had little personality and took no time to actually get to know me beyond the few questions she had to ask.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process took 1 week. Apply online, got a phone interview two days later. I was expecting a lot more data analysis questions, but the interviewer did not ask any. No tough questions. Basically all behavioral questions. Also, you will be expected to answer if you have read any econ or finance related magazines such as the economist or wsj.
