Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (New York, NY (US)) in November 2019.

Interview

I attended the information session one day and got group interview after one day. During the group interview, it was business case test. At the beginning, 15 minutes to read and prepare for the case; then 12 mins to ask the questions about the case; finally the supervisor showed up and listened to our recommendations in the last 15 mins. The test is looking for the solution to reduce the time between extracting data and publishing data. The dataset was given that in each country, what file types are used, languages, the number of data points to be captured in each file type, accuracy in each file type, and the time to market.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. (Princeton, NJ (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was on-campus and was a brief 10-minute discussion with a current employee. Very informal, talked about a typical analyst's day at Bloomberg. After hearing back around 3 days later, it was followed by an on-site interview which started out with an orientation for Bloomberg. The main interview was 3 30-minute conversations with current analysts. Again very informal and just talked about past internships/projects. Everyone was very friendly the entire way.

    • Mostly behavioral questions. I think I was only asked one question related to the markets.   Answer Question
