    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Moody's.

    Interview

    Very long, drawn-out process that was poorly managed. Multiple HR people were in touch with me, and it seemed like there was no communication between them as I was repeatedly asked the same questions. The interview process lasted over four months, I believe. I went through several rounds of interviews and HR didn't even have the decency to let me know I had been declined an offer. I found out the news after calling HR several times and finally speaking with someone.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    First round was a call with a current group director. Really nice, mostly just fit and past experiences. The second/final round was a superset in their NY office, pretty quick, did two interviews with two people at a time. Both were a combination of resume/past experience and technicals.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter the company employed had no idea which position they were interviewing me for. They asked me questions that are illegal and were very pushy and rude when I deferred. The recruiter mentioned several times that they were unlikely to remember me and my responses because they talk to so many people a day. I was not confident that they would be able to pass on appropriate notes to the hiring manager about my suitability for the role.

    FAIR WARNING TO FUTURE APPLICANTS.

    I applied to Moody’s for the position and got an email from HR to set up an initial phone interview. The next step is a phone call with one of the managers, then I got called down to the office for an in person interview. The initial process took roughly 2-3 weeks before an in person interview, and HR was up to date throughout the process.

    After the on site interview, you are completely ghosted from everyone you talk to from HR to the managers you interview with. The company doesn’t even have the decency to keep you updated throughout the process. I realize hiring may take long, but after following up numerous times, no one even has the initiative to reach back out to you.

    It is a shame that a company of this magnitude doesn’t even have the professionalism to reach back out to potential new hires. They don’t update your online applicant status, or reach back out via email or phone. They tell you they are looking to move “quick” and will have a decision “within 1-2 weeks.” Completely unprofessional on all accounts by ghosting candidates and make them wonder where they stand. It’s pathetic and hopefully they are able to improve on this considering the line of business the company does.
