    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DBRS.

    Interview Details

    Applied through university and the overall interview was very bad. Interviewer asked questions about what you know about us, when you found out about us and expects you to know how they do their work. If you're not too familiar then you're in big trouble. Atmosphere was horrible and they seem to care about you at all. No regular interview questions just accounting specific or industry specific questions.

    Junior Financial Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    It was an internship position and the interview process was really suffering. There were two interviewers and apparently they showed no interest on me. During the time they were asking me question, they kept silence and skipped some important points on my resume. It was a very embarrased atmosphere when I talked to them because they didn't show any response at all.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DBRS in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was not difficult. They need qualified analysts because of high turnover and co-ops and interns crunching the numbers. Previous credit experience will ensure you the job. They asked some easy questions that they thought were difficult. Told me how big they were and that I could move to London or NY if I wanted.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DBRS in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was short and relaxed. They just wanted to know if I had done any research on the company and seemed pleased that I had. Turns out a lot of people when asked :What do you know about the company? respond with "Not much." That pretty much kills your chances dead.

    Interview Questions
    • How much do you know about (insert name of obscuring financing vehicle here)? I lied a little and said I had written about it before, which was not strictly true (I had written about something very similar), but sometimes white lies are a necessity to get you to that next step. They also had me meet with the obscure financing team, who seemed too find the process amusing.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The offer was in the range I was seeking and the benefits were excellent so I accepted.
