Application

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

Interview

Had a more general on-site interview. Very casual just asking why Bloomberg, why financial journalism, what do you think will be the biggest story of the year. This followed by a skills test two weeks later.

    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.

    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

    Straightforward interview that is sent in as a recording so I did not talk to anyone from Bloomberg directly, simple questions based on skillsets and abilities as well as past experience, bilingual positions have harder screening because thy require you to switch between languages right away.
