    Sales and Analytics Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very long, badly organised. The team leaders do not know anything about you and they just show up there with questions to make you fail the interview. Not pleasant. Bad treatment. Such a shame that big companies hire these kind of people to carry out the interviews. They called me three times to male sure that the languages I spoke were in accordance with their database.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of several rounds: 1 online test, 1 phone interview, 2 interviews on-site. Most questions were difficult to say the least. The online test measured your C/C++ skills. The phone interview was OK. The onsite interviews were difficult, especially the final one with the head of R&D and HR.

    Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (London, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a Russian with a very heavy accent. I had a hard time understanding the recruiter. I think she was lost once I got into talking about my last job specifications.

    Reasons for Declining

    During the entire interview process and every time I was in contact with Bloomberg LP, I talked to people with heavy foreign accents that I could not understand. If I want to work in Russia then I move there and will do my best to learn the language better then my recruiters spoke English.
