    Associate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    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.

    Associate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • How would you approach a credit rating / what are some ratios you know?   1 Answer

    Associate Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview after applying online first. Historically, I have had very little success in getting responses from an online application. Moody's was the exception. The HR recruiter called me and left a message to call back. Once we setup a time to talk the phone screen was very simple.
