Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview

I first submitted my resume online and i also went to the career fair on campus. Most of my friends got a in person interview but i only got a phone interview. Since I am only a sophomore, the interviewer only asked basic stuff like linked list and stack. The interviewer was pretty nice.

Interview Questions

  • the first question is to write a factorial function, both iteratively and recursively. the second was to implement a linked list from scratch and then use that linked list to implement a stack. Then i was asked to reverse my linked list.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First round was phone through Hackerrank: got a simple starting question (1 number missing from 1 - n, find that number), then 2 numbers missing, then a hard leetcode (not too difficult). Got through that, and then got invited to onsite. Typical onsite questions, two technical rounds (first was related to intersection of linked lists and a design question, second round was LRU cache + design question). I was moved on to a HR round (which presumably means that I passed technical rounds -- they kick you out after technical rounds if you don't pass apparently) and I thought the HR round went well. I had to leave early since I had my flight in an hour, but apparently there's a manager round right after. I thought I did well in my interview -- I answered the technical questions correctly for sure, so maybe there was room for improvement in my design question for round 2. Ended up getting a typical rejection email a week later, which kinda sucked since I got absolutely no feedback for what I could've improved on/what I could've done. I contacted my recruiter but I got no response, which seems cold. Any sort of help would've been nice; I understand that giving back feedback might put the company at risk but some sort of communication would've been better than a cold HR email with "No replies will be reached to the HR department." Sucks, wish the recruiter was much better. I had a good experience talking to the engineers during the on-site for sure, and the logistics were great. I just wish the feedback would've been better and the post-interview follow up was there.

    Was pretty straightforward. Was asked a question to remove duplicate elements in an array. Phone interview followed by an onsite interview. Lasted for around 45 minutes and they expect to write efficient code with lower time complexity

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview then invited to onsite. Onsite consisted of 2 technical rounds, a round with a manager focused more on code architecture and design, then a HR round.

    The technical rounds are pretty standard, mostly data structures and algorithms questions. In the manager round, he showed me a program from the Bloomberg Terminal and asked me questions related to how I would go about implementing it.
