Quantitative Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Princeton, NJ) in December 2016.

Interview

The interview process began with phone screening and video conference with two employees before interviewing on sight. Travel was paid to company offices. Everyone I interacted with including both the recruiter and travel services representative were all very positive, and there was a uniform sense of professionalism and adherence to quality that I have rarely seen with companies big and small.

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

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter was very rude, had me clear my schedule for 2 hours to be available for a phone call. Cancelled the first time, 5 MINUTES before the 2-hour window was up. Almost happened the second time, but I called HR and explained that this would be the second time this would happen and that my time wasn't being respected. Recruiter probably had me on speaker phone while cooking because she was spacey and nonresponsive.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (San Francisco, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applying for the position was an initially a pretty human-less process... lots of auto-replies, etc. After finally landing an initial phone interview, the people were actually very nice, intelligent, and seemingly interested in what you had to say. A few weeks after the initial phone interview, I was called into the SF location for an in person interview. While the content of the actual interview was certainly not light, the atmosphere was human enough to make you feel comfortable. They expect you to be 100% on top of what's going on in the financial and political world. Reading the last few editions of The Economist will certainly help you get through the day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in February 2010.

    Interview

    It is a 2:1 interview. Two interviewers and me. Based on my resume, they asked me a lot of C++ programming techs. And they improvise, extend to other not related at all techs, detailed to memory locating, etc. Then brain teaser. It is quite okay, but they want to show your whole thinking process. I ended up gave them not a standard answer, and explain to them step by step why this works. They pay great attention to my thinking process. Last, they gave me a problem to write the usdo code. And comment, ask why I did this on every step. It is a little bit difficult to concentrate, but I guess it is how the working environments are, you constantly dealing with people, and coworkers. It ended up badly with not remembering some library code, and not familiar with the hardware related coding.
