It all happened in one day, it was all on campus. I applied through the campus website. Overall a very easy interview. Everyone was laid back. After two technical interviews I met with hr and a senior engineer

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in November 2017.

    Interview

    2 on-campus interview + Onsite Interview. Took about 3 weeks. On-campus interviews were straightforward, but they seem to vary by interviewer significantly. Some of my friends got harder questions or easier questions depending on the interviewer. So definitely be ready to solve harder problems as well.

    Interview

    I first had a coding challenge, then I got called in for an interview. The interviewers seemed a little impatient and only asked to explain one element from my resume then dove right into technical questions.

    Interview

    2 On-campus interviews, both technical as well as behavioral, then an HR interview on-site. Both technical questions were pretty standard problems you would find in CTCI or Leetcode. HR was questions about projects. HR is mainly to ask why you would be a good fit.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview recently with Bloomberg. I have nothing against people that aren't native English speakers or are from different countries, but my interviewer's accent was too strong for me to be able to understand him over the phone. I had to ask him to repeat himself several times for almost everything he said, and after asking him to do so several times I was usually still not able to tell what he wanted to say. I felt bad for him and I think Bloomberg HR needs to prevent this situation from happening in the future. I wasn't selected to move on to the next round, but I wonder how much of that was due to me not being able to understand the feedback my interviewer was giving me along the way. Overall it was a very negative experience - again, not necessarily the interviewer's fault - and terribly embarrassing, probably for both of us.

    Interview

    I had an interview on campus. The interviewer was friendly. It started with questions about my resume and then moved on to two technical questions. One was about trees and other was a design question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Serious engineers should STAY AWAY!

    You are judged on interviewing skills not technical skills. if you code correctly, but you do not pick up their hints thats a negative point.

    Phone interviewers were good, but onsite interviewers did not seem to have respect for the fact that people think differently. Some people may take more time to come to a point than others, ( which might be reverse for different problem).

    Process spanned over 3 Months !

    2 phone interviews
    Then onsite

    Pathetic experience.
    2 interviewers sitting next to me in small room, constantly talking and “trying to help”. They were polite, but very interruptive.
    Next was design interview. Was let go after that.

    No questions on my project or technologies that I use were asked. ( Least you can expect as an engineer)

    The expectation is that they want to see you how you tackle a problem in your day to day. Fair enough! But their approach is terrible.

    Its really terrible that one engineer has so much power to completely eliminate you after going through so many rounds. I was walked out immediately after the interview there was no discussion between Engineers!

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    this is first round technical interview. At first, talk about resume, most challenging project and then do the technical question. Afterward, she lets me to ask questions. I think the question she asks is at will, most of the times, I don't know what she want me to do.
