    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.
