    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at BlackRock in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got a referral for BlackRock.
    Then i received a call from the HR. I had an offer in hand,so the HR wanted to discuss the salary before even having a telephonic technical discussion/screening.

    Telephonic Interviewer again started discussing salary first. I do not know why they are fearing screening people. See whether you need him/her first.

    I always used to think a product base firm like BlackRock pays higher than others. But its a myth.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview with a VP in the group. Asked me to walk through my resume and explain how my experience with my current firm prepared me for that role. Later that afternoon HR contacted me to set up onsite interviews. I met with analysts and associates on the team as well as the VP. Questions were mostly fit, but they did ask if I followed financial news and what stories I found interesting. You need to truly understand what you are talking about, not simply repeat words from the articles. They will test your knowledge. Also, know why you want to work at Blackrock particularly the group you're interviewing with. I was then brought back in for another interview with the Director and Managing Director. Both were pleasant, explained their expectations, but mostly wanted know if I had any questions about the role.
