No. HR emailed directly to schedule first round. Just received that status update email today, so probably everyone gets it today?

For me it was mainly behavioral, some questions around the 5 principles and also a couple of direct technical questions directly related to the role/team. I did mine a week ago and still waiting for feedback and next steps. Best of luck for yours!

I resonate with what @randomdudeinfinance said, I had pretty much the exact experience. I also took it last week and am currently waiting. Hopefully we are colleagues in the future.

Behavioral mostly. How do you work in teams with examples? How do you handle pressure ? They asked me to explain how I analyzed some data in my resume. Know everything in your resume. How is the market condition ? Have you used any data analysis tools? How ? They literally asked me to mention Blackrock principles too.

Yeah mate, cheers to that. How many people do you reckon get invited to a first round interview? I'm just curious to understand how selective the HireVue is.

Also, I'll let you all know whenever I get an update/feedback from the team.

Thanks for the feedback my internet friend, always valuable information. Really appreciate that.

May I ask if you could give some info of how the superday was for you? like how many interviews, tecnhical or behavioral, etc?

Also, if I didn't hear anything after 1 week from my 1st round, do you think I got canned or just a matter of time?

It's my pleasure to share, we're in this together. This is my first time applying for a job in financial services so I don't know much but most guys who have made it in my school told me they usually decide within a week or two after the first round.

For the super day interviews, I had three rounds with three VP's. Mostly behavioral but a little bit deeper. I remember a question like: explain how you sent a complex written report and people didn't understand it, what did you do ? How do you respond to criticisms? What will people say about your strengths and weaknesses? Pitch me Chevron stock (I mentioned I analyzed chevron in my resume). Why did you choose this location? Explain to me this project you did ? Tell me the predictive algorithms you used in this project? (Mentioned in resume). But overall they were very friendly and it was conversational. I asked them a couple of questions tailored to their profiles too and they seemed to like it. Hoping for the best but Im told it's really competitive and I feel lucky to have even made it to the interviews given my unusual background. I wish you best in your final round. Hopefully they'll respond to you next week.

I have for the same role and position. Had my super day on Friday. Waiting for the call. Hope we both get it. I have heard that it takes around 2 weeks for them to get back to you. How was your experience btw?

I know of a classmate that got the 1st round for an Alternatives team in the UK. Haven't heard since though. It's been about 3 weeks for him too. Seems in line with everyone else waiting period. Not sure what is taking this long and if in the meantime they keep on having 1st round interviews with other candidates. For what team did you interview and where if I may ask?

Received an interesting email saying that "BlackRock is still in the process of making hiring decisions and we appreciate your patience. You will be updated on the status of your application shortly."Sounds like I'm being waitlisted or the hiring freeze is in effect… thoughts? FI group in NY/NJ
