    Credit Analyst, Retail Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fitch Ratings.

    Interview Details

    Sent resume in through an internal contact. Was called in for one on one meetings with HR, the hiring manager and research heads of other departments. The hiring manager appeared to be overworked and tired, however all interviewers were pleasant and personable. The physical working environment was lackluster. Received positive feedback, but no offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Fitch Ratings in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview at first- which was constantly rescheduled and reshuffled around. Seemed hurried and rushed, HR all over the place with several different recruiters calling me. Ended up turning down in-person interview due to better offer elsewhere. I would recommend they use a more generalized process and follow it from now on, but their recruiters (all of the ones i spoke to) were very friendly at least

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Fitch Ratings in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter,had a phone interview with the PM and a Senior Partner.
    They asked all that was written on my resume very basic BA questions. At the end of the conversation I was asked if I can come for a F2F.
    As per the recruiter I already have the job its just a formality...
    Went for a F2F met with the PM,she had questions again on my profile,then she explained everything in detail and how and what I would be doing,introduced to the team members , I was 100% sure I got this job.

    Next Morning I got a call that they had changed their mind on the position.It was really disappointing
    felt like they were just wasting time to see whats out in the market.

    The interview process can be tedious depending on the group you are applying for. In one case you may have no more than one interview, in another case you can have as many as three rounds with different people before a decision is made.

    The HR just went through the resumes and asked some questions about the previous internship experience. Then you will be asked about the future plans and short-term goal. There is no behavioral questions and case analysis. The interview ended with your questions towards Fitch Ratings.
