Quick Bloomberg Q for Anyone with experience of Interviews

Bloomberg
#1

Had an interview yesterday - was wondering the time period for getting back to people/whether the longer it is the lower the chances - ie - the way law firms operate.

#2

Was it a final interview?

Generally offers are given within 48 hours of a final interview - things do depend on how busy people are at the company though, and how many other people are being interviewed/how many jobs there are.

#3

It was a final interview. Think they might be interviewing others the last two days seeing as I specifically asked to be interviewed early in the week and they seemed reluctant.

Was only the one job. Will have to wait and see.

Hi arincdam,

Can you please tell me how many days did it take for Bloomberg to evaluate your results of the online test. I just gave my online test in C.

Thanks,
Aatish

Hi AAAtish,for me it took about a week ( but i had interpreted it rightly before they got back to me) . It all depends upon location/number of people applied/number of evaluators available with BBG for looking at your script. BTW where r u located? if u have a snapshot of the result u can send it across to me + the post applied for , i can pretty safely tell u whether u qualify for it or not? PM for mail id .

Hi Aatish and Arindam,
I have to take the Bloomberg online assessment skill test in C in a few days. Can you just tell me what kind of questions will be generally posed in this test and what should I be prepared in?

#9

I have done Bloomberg tele interview/1st round interview and shadowing and the 2nd round interview.

Usually they will get back to you within 1-2days time. They are pretty fast in that respect.

#10

Hi NERVA10 , Did you give any online test before that telephonic round? What kind of questions did they ask…i have chosen C as my language.

#12

Hmm i didn’t do any online tests. At the time I was referred to by a bloomberg employee after they met me in the career fair for the financial sales and analytics role. I did remember them testing our language by paper form. Other than that it was pure interviews/shadowing for me.

#13

Hi Navatha, How was your C interview at Bloomberg? what kind of questions were you asked? how was the experience? It would be great if you could list the questions they asked. Thanks.

#14

#15

Hi Paul,
I have given an online C test in December and cleared it. Am waiting for them to call me to schedule a phone interview. It was more on syntaxes and basics. You need to be thorough with the basic syntaxes and concepts… Good luck!
