    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview process was very quick. Consisted of a 5 hour long interview where I met various members of the team I applied to and had two assessments related to the job. One of the assessments consisted of providing an opinion about a fictitious company and writing a one page report on it. The second assessment was specific to the group I was joining.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    There was a lengthy online assessment. After about 2 months after completing the assessment, I was selected for a phone interview which was pretty straightforward, a mix of both technical and personal questions. The next day I found out that I advanced to the super day. The super day included a writing sample, followed by two back-to-back 1 on 1 interviews and an excel test.

    Project Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I would say Fitch Ratings had one of the best interview process. Everybody was engaged from HR/Recruiter to interviewers. The HR representative was warm and accommodating. I had to expedite my interview process and she was extremely helpful and got me through the interview process seamlessly. The interviewers were professional and welcoming. They asked about my PM experience and also I think they are looking for the right fit for the company which I agree is very important. I interviewed with the managers for each group I will be working with: Project Management, Business Analyst, and Development managers.

    I was excited to receive the offer but regretfully had to decline due to personal reasons even. However I believe Fitch would have been a great place to advance in my career.

    It's really about your initiative, your interest in finance, your willingness to learn, and how excited you are. They don't expect you to know all about bonds and loans, just show a genuine interest in finance and the markets, show that you're someone they'd like to work with, and you'll be fine.
