Sales and Analytics Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in November 2016.

Interview

The first step was a video interview with 5 questions: why bloomberg, why analytics, what are you following in the market, have you ever sold a product or an idea, where do you see yourself in 3-5 years.
The second one was an on-office interview. It took 4 hours and it included: company's presentation, Terminal shadowing session, office tour, and one-hour interview with Sales TL and Analytics TL. They mostly asked behavioral questions about dealing with a client.
On the 25th of January I will do my last interview. Fingers crossed!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First stage was a phone interview. It might just have been in my case but I found this one the most difficult.
    The second stage was a face2face round one with one representative from analytics and one from sales, then there were two more interview rounds before the offer. They are very quick in letting you know if you moved on to the next step in the process, usually within 24h

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I took the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT), a finance aptitude test, nearly a year and half before I was contacted about this position. I had indicated when I would be finished with my masters, so they emailed me about this job. I had 5 rounds of interviews: 3 phone interviews, 1 video conference from the Paris office to the London office, and 1 in-house interview in London (final interview). I started the application process in June and finished the interviewing process in September. I believe it took unusually long and normally happens much quicker.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process wasn't too bad. The person I interviewed with was pretty bland, not too interesting. You have to display a passion for finance as well as an interest in the financial market. You really have to know a lot about the position as well as what it is that Bloomberg does. I received more questions about the company than my skills overall.
