    Interview

    Very friendly and professional interviewers. Had a good overall experience, although process was quite lengthy with multiple interviews and tests. Generally interview was for a large part bases on basic behavioral questions, but also accounting and credit skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Moody's Corporation (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a phone screen with HR which consisted solely on accounting questions. They let you know pretty quickly if you get the super-day. I then met with a couple of managers who asked accounting based questions as well as behavioral questions. The people i interviewed with overall were very nice. I guess the best thing to do is try to relate with them since not only is the interview testing your knowledge, it is also testing whether you are someone they want to sit next to for 50+ hrs. The accounting question tend to be repetitive for obvious reasons.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Moody's Corporation (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online and received invitation for phone interview 1 week later. The phone interview was with a director asking me tougher questions than I thought, mostly technical, and not friendly at all. He seemed like he was in a rush to move on to next task on his calender. A week later I received email for final round. I asked the recruiter for interview info, it took her a while to get back to me. But the final in person interview was great and they were friendly. I met 6 people in the team and the HR was very friendly and agreed to send me emails of all 6 interviewers. But I've never received HR's email. They never got back to me even after I followed up 2-3 times. The way they treat the interviees tells how they treat their employees and I have no interest in working at this firm regardless of the firm reputation.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Moody's Corporation (New York, NY) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward interview. Was contacted by an internal recruiter and had two rounds of interviews, each including two half-hour sessions with different members of the team. After MD told me "we are looking to move quick, are you around in the next few days" - I didn't hear back for weeks. The recruiter finally got back in touch with me and told me she received good feedback but they were still making their decision. Another few weeks pass - no word or response to my emails. Finally get a response, they went a different direction (no problem), but asked if I would be interested in applying for another role on the same team. I said sure, the recruiter told me she would get back to me in a few days. Never got a response and I've since been completely ghosted. Overall a very frustrating and non-transparent process. I am not upset about not getting an offer, but being strung along with minimal information for literally months is extremely frustrating and unprofessional.

    Interview

    I had a regular 30-min behavioral interview with an associate after applying through the university career portal. The interview went over basic questions like "walk me through your resume," "what do you consider a strength/weakness of yours." The one question I did not prepare well was on which service sector I would be most interested in joining.
