    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    This was a phone interview for BVAL quantitative developer position. The questions were not difficult but the interviewer was in a great hurry and didn't wait for answers. I feel I wasn't agressive enough in my replies. It was like a stress test.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online and has to complete a series of C questions. Questions are tricky and you have to be careful. Within one day completing the test, I got an email from HR requesting for a phone interview. The phone interview is about 40 minutes with 2 person asking technical questions. After waiting more than few weeks after the phone interview and still no response, I follow up with the HR, and immediately I got a reply for an in-house invitation to Bloomberg. They paid for my flight + hotel + car transportation from airport to hotel. The on-site interview consists of a series of technical questions with 2 engineers, and behavioral questions with a recruiter, and finally got to chat with a more senior engineer and a lot of opportunity to ask questions. The on-site interview is about 2 hours. I got a $100 gift card for travel + meal expenses reimbursement after the interview. They told me to wait for couple weeks for the hiring decision.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in March 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had a phone interview which consisted of a brain teaser and kind of a technical programming question. Interviewer was very friendly and our interview sort of turned into a conversation after a bit, which was 45 minutes long total in length. Called up the next day for an onsite interview. They will fly me up to New York for what I assume will be an all day interview.
