    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!

    Associate Analyst III Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Moody's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview followed by a call in for a superday. Super day consisted of several 2 on 1 interviews, mostly fit questions. Some technical questions, some basic math skills. Seemed like for the most part they wanted to discern whether you were of average intelligence, and whether you would be a good fit. From what I've heard from others, if you have a technical/quant background, they will ask more tech/quant questions. Otherwise they just want to see whether you would be able to pick that stuff up on the job. Few weeks later I heard back and accepted.

    Senior Level Role In Human Resources 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 May 2014.

    Interview Details

    PROS = Moved quickly - initial phone screening from hiring manager within 2-3 weeks of resume submittal; followed up a few days later with request to interview with 3-4 executives.

    CONS = One month later, follow up emails ignored and zero feedback provided - clearly no longer being considered but how about sharing that minor detail with the candidate who carved out time to meet at company's convenience, dress the part and risk current employer suspicion by doing so.

    ADVICE = Follow up with candidates in a timely fashion post interview - at least respond to their emails with something.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly generic text book questions until the industry expertise question - "You do not have experience specific to Credit Analyst's - how would you go about gaining such experience?"   Answer Question

    Assistant Vice President - Process Management  Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Moody's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by an HR representative and told I would be interviewed by a VP by phone. After several attempts to meet (the VP had outlook appt issues), this interview went well. I was then asked to come in the Moody's HQ in the financial district and interviewed by 4 VPs and one HR professional, one person at a time. Each one on one interview lasted 1/2 hr. The last interview was with the HR professional. She would not disclose when they might be making a decision on the position.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked for several examples of how I accomplished an activity listed on my resume. The interviewer also went back pretty far in my work history.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard from HR very quickly. After their initial phone screening, I had a phone interview with the hiring manger followed by an in-person interview. Then, radio silence. HR didn't respond to a follow-up email and never closed the loop, which I thought showed a lack of professional courtesy.

    HR : Here is the weak point, Dragged the full process for 1.5 months. No proper co-ordination between Team & HR. After giving an Verbal offer of $x trying to again negotiate for $2k, which is really unacceptable.
