I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at S&P Ratings in April 2013.

Interview Details – First a phone call with HR, then an interview with my manager and then an interview with 2 members of the team I worked with.
It was a good experience. Everyone I spoke with was nice and there were no shocking questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you had to make a very difficult decision.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at S&P Ratings in March 2012.

Interview Details – There was a brief phone interview with an HR representative and then an interview with a managing director and director (at the same time). The second interview had little technical questions but was pretty general: why do you want to work here? Who is the president of S&P?

Interview Question – Can you explain to me how to securitize a product?   Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at S&P Ratings in April 2011.

Interview Details – Initial communications just through a connection with a recruiter. They use Kelly Services to hire all their temporary employees like interns. I was only to have a phone interview and a 1:1 interview in person, but ended up getting the offer without the 1:1 but everyone else had to. I'm not sure why.
