    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Extremely unprofessional and inconsiderate. Takes weeks and weeks to get any response from HR. The worst experience I ever had interviewing for finance jobs (I've interviewed with dozens of firms including prestigious bulge bracket and middle market banks). Absolutely terrible

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Sent out an online application, recruiter contacted me an hour later via email for a phone screen. A week later, received a call to set up Super Day times at their office in NYC. Met with 3 different groups, two representing one group and the other two groups having just one interviewer. Questions depended on the group in question; Credit Policy mainly asked about past experience while Structured Finance went with technical questions via examples. Given about 35 minutes per group, so not much time to ask questions afterward.

    Did not receive any email or phone call with rejection asides from the usual 'thank you' from their automated email.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the school career center. I've only gone through the first round on campus interview and it was mainly behavioral questions. I had two interviews for corporate and structured finance. Both interviewers were very friendly and approachable - it was more like a discussion than an interview. I got a really good vibe from them, they seem to truly care about their employees.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Moody's.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a career fair, who then referred to me another recruiter who happened to be looking to fill the role. After explaining what I was looking for he decided I would be a fit for the role. He then passed my resume along to the hiring manager, an SVP. I then had a phone interview with the SVP a few days later. After a few days, I was invited to an on-site interview where I was interviewed by 4 members on the team I would be working with.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews each with people from a different sector. It was mainly behavioral and just going through my resume. They were nice, but really want you to know when coming in what sector you want to work for at Moody's. Coming from a liberal arts college, they asked a lot about my writing capabilities, so be prepared to have example of some written work.

    Interview process was extremely easy. Applied through on campus recruiting. Had a first round interview where they mostly wanted to know your background and if you were smart enough to do the job, not necessarily if you already had the skill set. The interview was not technical.

    Interview

    First round interview on campus with 2 VPs. Got a call back 2 days later. Next round is super day at their beautiful offices in which I had 5 interviews with 6 people (mostly VPs and above). They called the next day with an offer. The people were not only really nice, but really intelligent as well. The culture seemed to be great and all of the senior management have MBAs or CFAs.
