Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in December 2014.

Interview Details

1st round:
(nothing about the position)
It was a group interview on campus. There was a case and the HR head asked for a group discussion. Since that was a random story, you have nothing to prepare. But make sure you show your best discussion skills and show your team work to the manager.

Then, 3 people from my group had been selected to see the manager right after.

2nd round: Meeting with the manager.
 He asked me about details from my work and volunteer experiences.
Why Bloomberg?
Which sector do I like the most? (I said Fixed income)
Why is it more risky to hold you asset to a longer time horizon?
Why Finance?
Competitors?

    Interview Details

    Singapore office - first round interview through internal referral - questions focused on a particular assignment in my CV rather than my strengths and weaknesses followed by role playing.
    Speak confidently, concisely and be relaxed. Ended on a positive note but didn't receive the offer.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bloomberg L.P..

    Interview Details

    First Round - Phone Interview
    Very standard and friendly. I was asked to walk the interviewer through my resume and then answer why I want to work for Bloomberg. A week later I received an email inviting me to the HQ for an interview.

    Second Round - In-house Interview
    The in-house interview consists of a demonstration of the terminal, 2, one on one interviews (30 mins each) and a tour of the headquarters. Again, the interview questions are pretty standard:

    Tell me about yourself.
    Why finance?
    Why sales?
    Tell me about a time when you were bold.
    Sell me your favorite sport
    How does the terminal benefit oil companies?

    Exactly one month later I got an email stating that I had one more interview in-house.

    Third Round - Inhouse Interview
    This round is the final and toughest round so you better bring your A game. It consists of shadowing a current employee for half hour. So ask a lot of questions about what he/she is doing. Then two rounds of interviews. The first with 2 team leaders and the last with a manager. The interviews with the team leaders and managers are a mixture of standard fit questions but they can get very technical.They'll ask you questions like:

    What's going in the markets?
    How do you think that affects Bloomberg?
    What would you do if you didn't have to worry about money?

    Interview Questions
    • What do you look for in a company that is about to IPO?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, standard offer which is competitive and the benefits are good.

    interviewed at Bloomberg L.P. in January 2015.

    I again received an email in about a month for their office visit. Office visit went well too. I had two, one - one interviews, one with someone from Analytics and other from Sales. Questions were all relevant.
