4 interviews, all competency based. Took place on the same day along side a written question about the motivation to work at the firm. There was also a presentation about the firm from a current graduate in which some candidates let themselves down with unnecessary questions which stood out to the manager.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at BlackRock in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I had a video interview over a skype-like service. They asked me behavioral questions. It was very based on my resume and past experience. I was interviewed by a second-year analyst. I felt like I was under pressure the entire time and she was waiting for me to make a mistake. To be fair, it was one of my first interview experiences so it may have been more difficult for me than others.

    Mostly competency based. Be prepared for standard 'fit' questions as well, and be ready to walk them through your resume. The technicals were relatively straightforward.

    Consisted of two 30 minute interviews.

    Interview Details

    Interview on campus for the tech internship. The interviewer was friendly, but didn't ask really anything about me, just explained the position and BlackRock. Then we worked through a problem of how I would approach organizing a set of data. Overall, was a good experience, took them a week to offer a second round

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BlackRock in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st round - phone call from HR
    2nd round - VC interview

    Was quite rigorous but not many technical questions were asked. mainly background checks and knowing your personality.

    Phone call was with the HR manager based in India. She asked basic questions and was rather straightforward.

    Second round was a VC interview with a senior associate and a line manager. took about 1 hr for the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at BlackRock.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by my campus recruiter to set up an on campus interview. Interview went fairly well. Questions involved some basic OOP concepts and the use of data structures. Three weeks later, I was called into the San Francisco office for a second round of interviews which went well. Second round consisted of around four interviews and questions were all mostly related to JAVA concepts and general system design.
