Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's in March 2017.

Interview

Moody's outsources the HR team. The recruiter was very nice and patient. They needs candidates with strong quantitative and programming skills. Finance knowledge is not mandatory.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Honestly? This company should be completely embarrassed by how their HR is run. This isn't my first time applying at Moody's but it will certainly be my last; this is my third time to have such a negative experience that I felt obligated to write a post on glass door and forewarn people.

    They outsource their HR; who are so disorganized and vague it's amazing. A few years ago I spent half a day interviewing at Moody's and the HR rep couldn't be bothered to answer any of my followup emails are calls. Similar experience the second time. This time around, I was invited to an onsite interview, only to promptly be told via email two days later that they went with another candidate.

    Company should def be aware the poor treatment but their recruitment people is a solid strategy to lose solid candidates - I will not be applying again, and honestly, I think that's Moody's loss.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's in December 2016.

    Interview

    My experience was typical from what I've read here. I initially applied to a lower level position but the recruiter called me and said I'd be a better fit for the AA role. Phone screen with a lead analyst and then was called in for a superday at their office in NYC. People were late, the order of interviewers was not true to schedule, people dropped off and were replaced, and I also had a 2:1 screen. Interviewers ranged from engaged and personable to disinterested and standoffish. The company outsources its HR group, and everything is overall disorganized and felt chaotic. Overall, I'm impressed with the quality of personnel that met with me, though an offer never came.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Moody's (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    1 hour, 2 interviewers, in campus interview. I was having nice conversation with 2 VPs in Moody's. This position is allocated to the financial and planning group, which is mainly focus on financial statement for Moody's itself. And my major doesn't fit this position so well. Anyway, two interviewers are aboth nice.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Combination of phone interviews and in person interviews with multiple people across multiple days. Questions were not overly technical nor were they overly simplistic. A large portion of questions were dedicated to discussing prior background and experience as well as some situational questions. Process in total took about three weeks. HR was helpful in facilitating the process.

    Interview

    Very rapid fire. Questions not at all related to what the job winded up to be. The interviewers seemed desperate to fill the role, so didn't ask a lot of challenging questions.
