    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    An agent forwarded my resume and set up an interview date. There was about a 2 week wait for the interview which was telephonic.
    2 interviewers in a conference call, grilled theoretical ABAP questions. If your underlying theory is good, you can get through. But that means you have to brush up all the basics. Not much emphasis on practical knowledge.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Never Spoke to Bloomberg recruiter(Kristin Mornan). Only Communicated through email. I was advised that Bob Louro and Kieren Erol will conduct the phone screens. These guys asked questions and interview went well. Got another email from Bloomberg recruiter(Kristin Mornan) for a face to face interview with several members of their team, which I accepted. Then panel included Adion Brewster, Julian Rossiter, Bob Louro, Kieren Erol. They guys interviewed me for almost 2-3 hours, all interviews went well as I was able to answer all of their questions and was very hopeful that I stand a chance. All the interviewers were nice and friendly and asked relatively simple questions. I left with good feeling. Next week got an email from H.R that they will NOT be extending the offer and I was like what exactly is the reason for declining, since everything went right. Kristin Mornan replied that its their policy NOT to share the reason(s). And I still see this job being posted over and over again as their intention is NOT to hire anyone but person of their interest

    Conclusion:
    -They have fixed interviews
    - H.R need to stay busy so they post bogus requirements
    - They have someone or want someone on this specific postion

    Advice:
    - Make sure you talk to Bloomberg recruiters over the phone and fill in an application before you actually go there for a face to face interview (even that might NOT help if intention is NOT to hire)
    - Stay away from this Company
