    Application

    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 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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed through on-campus recruiting, so there was a behavioral two-on-one interview on campus (30 min), and final rounds were held in-office, with 2 back-to-back thirty minute interviews. The first round was very behavioral - just a get-to-know you type of interview with a couple of questions about what the company does and what the role of the specific position is. Final rounds were a little more difficult - I was constantly drilled on how I am a good fit for this specific position and how my skills were quantitative.

    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.
