    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied on their website. Within a week I was contacted and scheduled for a phone call with a recruiter. No call was made. Contacted them to reschedule, was given an available time slot. Confirmed the time and was told it's not an available slot. After pointing out it's a time they gave me, they magically reopened it. Got a call from recruiter and we spoke about the role and I was told there's a perfect spot for me. A week of radio silence I inquired about any interviews, and I was told I was emailed a rejection email. I checked my junk mail, trash, nothing. When I inquired for a copy of the email I was told their "system was stuck" and they apologized. They called to confirm that they don't want to move forward anymore.

    Interview Questions

    • None. They are so disorganized that they can't keep track of time slots they suggested themselves an hour earlier.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Discriminated against me because of my North African background, an utterly disgusting Hr practice and an utterly disgusting occurrence of rampant nepotism. Don't say you're hiring diverse and qualified candidates when people like us get rejection.
