Application

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

Interview

Applied in October 2016, got a phone interview which was supposed to take place at the end of December. I wanted to reschedule the interview because I was away for the days they suggested. I never heard back from them. Overall, a bad experience. I have sent them a few e-mails, but it was useless

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty lengthy, with 4 hours of Hackerrank coding + discussions of technical stuff (split into two 1-hour interviews and one 2-hour interview over the course of several weeks) and 4 hours of on-site interviews with the team, mostly about personal things like motivations, interests and best achievements at work.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with them. Normal phone screen interview. Some behavioral questions plus quite standard coding questions. Asked a question about hash table at the end. One thing is Bloomberg recruitment team keeps sending emails reminding that the application is not forgotten but under review.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter from Radley James contacted me and urged to arrange a technical phone interview. The interviewer was late, called me back several times because of connection problems at his side. Except for low sound quality the interview went smoothly, I solved the problem, achieved optimal computational complexity. However, I did not receive any feedback at all. 5 weeks have passed, I have contacted the recruiter twice, but nothing. It appears to me they don't value candidate's time and have no respect at all to the ones who might not suit their company, so they are not able to decline the candidate by email, I'm not even talking about a phone call. Totally negative experience, I haven't seen such unprofessional behaviour before.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about 6 month. it consisted of a phone interview followed by 2 video conferences.
    I was invited to do the onsite interview in London May 2016. During the day I made a technical interview followed by a short hr interview.
    My feedback: I was treated very badly by the recruiter, I almost awaited 2 weeks for every reply or confirmation to come, that explains why the process took about 6 months, but it's shockingly different during the onsite interview, The recruiters were helpful and cheerful and the office is really fascinating.

    Interview Questions

    • phone interview: asked about my past experiences and CV, when creating an object in C++ what is the functions that are defined by default?.

      first video conference: how would you design the history for a browser, all urls must be sorted by the time stamp of the last visit. e.g. when you visit a url for the second time it must go to the top of the list.

      second video conference: given an array of different values and a number n, count how many pairs of indices x,y such that arr[x] + arr[y] = n.

      I was asked about my motivation and why do I want to work for Bloomberg in all interviews.
      At the end of each interview you will be asked if you have any questions for the interviewer, make sure to prepare good ones.
