    Interview

    Phone screen , f2f
    Overall The quality of the questions were ok
    The hands on test was not well planned, kind of time wasted there because of their unpreparedness.
    I hope they didnt think I was slow
    During the interview I kind of felt the interviewers' doubts about my experience , maybe because of the too many job changes in my resume

    They didn't get back

    I first talked to HR, who told me about the internship position, asked me if I had any questions, and set up a time for my interview the next day. I had a phone call interview and we went over the position description and requirements, asked questions about my experience and what I am looking for in the internship. We then went over my resume, and she asked details about my teamwork experience. At the end of the interview, she asked if I had any questions and answered them. Phone interview ended, and a couple hours later I got a call from HR to follow up on the interview.

    Product Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Moody's Analytics (South San Francisco, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I didn't apply for the role; a recruiter found me via LinkedIn and sent me a message. From there we had a phone call after a week and later after 2 weeks, I had a call with hiring manager.
    The process was very slow as the recruiter was not from Moody's and an external to Moody's. Then after few weeks suddenly I got an email inviting on-site for an interview.
    The on-site interview was with 5 rounds with some rounds being 1:1 and some in being a panel of two. Questions were ok and the overall interview was fine. But the part that I would constructively criticize is the process speed. It was too slow, the process went from early April until early June. And recruiter was not so responsive. I suppose it was because it was not a direct Moody's HR!

    The selection process in Moody's will go in two rounds. The first will be a telephonic interview where in the questions will most probably work around the resume and they basically assess how committed we are to the position that we applied. This will last no more than 20-30 minutes.

    The second is an in person interview, I was interviewed by 3 panel team for a time of about 45-55 minutes. The questions mostly dealt with my previous work experiences and technical stuff. They were more interested the roles I dealt with so far, my academic projects, and my insights on questions on the position.
