    The hiring process was thorough but fair. It included three rounds of interviews, the last of which was long and included 7 interviews. The people were very nice, and while they asked a lot of questions, they did not try to make me uncomfortable or stressed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BlackRock in November 2011.

    Interview

    I was studying abroad and applied online to BlackRock because the deadline was coming to a close. I applied for the Graduate Program for BlackRock, and was accepted for a first round interview. Questions were harder than most of the other interviews I have had, because you would actually need current information in order to stay on top of the interview questions. Interviewer was nice, and the interview lasted for about 45 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock (New York, NY (US)) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Received phone call - went through screening rounds with HR and some mid-level people. Interviews were both personality based and ask some concept type questions to understand technical skills. Asked back for interviews with more high level people - the questions were even more about fit and personality, although high level concept questions were asked again. Final round was with Sr level people and followed the same basic principles.
