    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was a very long process that included: HR screening; interviews by Directors from Chicago office; interviews with NYC office; writing sample; special project; 2nd rounds with the NYC office.

    Overall, felt like there was no leadership throughout the process and the scope of the role was not well defined. The interview team also took very long time between each interviews and follow up.

    Application

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

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very Long process interviewing with people who should have asked better questions and understood the role. I found that the questions were perfunctory and the interviewers seemed to be going thru the motions. They didn't seem excited about working there themselves. Very curious about what I saw in the company. These people all seem to have a complex about being at the company. I detected that in all of the interviews.
