    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Moody's.

    Interview Details

    About 3 interviews but met most of team during one of them (approx 7-8 people); disparate personalities in group, which bore out when I worked with them later; HR gave impression that promotions were quicker than they are. Moody's culture consists of mostly nice, smart people, but computer systems need updating.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was extremely easy. Applied through on campus recruiting. Had a first round interview where they mostly wanted to know your background and if you were smart enough to do the job, not necessarily if you already had the skill set. The interview was not technical.

    One First Round Interview. Very good and smooth process. Nothing unexpected. They really just wanted to make sure you were articulate and to assess that you are a good fit.

    Interview Details

    Everyone was very nice at Moody's and at the end of the day they just wanted to have a conversation with you. It was a 2 round interview process, and they always communicated exactly what the interview process would be like at every stage. All in all, it was a lot of fun and the culture of the company seems great.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Moody's.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume and was contacted by recruiter for an interview a couple of weeks later. Scheduled an interview with the Managing Director of the Sovereign group and an Associate Analyst. Interviewers did not call the number that I said I could be reached at, so it was a little uncoordinated. But after technical difficulties were sorted out, the interviewers were very professional and asked mostly about my resume and the my interest in international markets.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Moody's.

    Interview Details

    1- Tests and interview with a senior associatte. Just went over resume and was asked to explain a few ratios.
    2- Second round. MD + VP interviews, again just over resume. Asked why I would make a good fit. Then HHRR behavioural interview.

    The whole process was in english, so if you're not comfortable with it just don't go. Better candidates where thrown away just because they had a not completely fluent english.

    Interview Questions

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Moody's in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applying to the position wasn't difficult, the application process was pretty standard. The hiring manager reached out to me directly for the first phone screen. They were very straightforward and clear about what they were looking for and that is always exciting for a candidate. The in person interview was okay; although the interviewers were late. The interview schedule was not clear. After my interview, the hiring manager asked me to call them back and share my experience. I left them messages and emails but never heard back from anybody from the team. I am not sure where the disconnect was, given that the HR team seemed pretty professional, but I am yet to hear from them. Disappointing!
