    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Human Resources Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Prolonged and misleading.
    I applied through LinkedIn, after approximately 2 weeks got callback from recruiter. After the first phone interview, I was interviewed by two current employees/directors from the team I'll be working with. This 2 to 1 interview was partially affected by signal problem. The two directors were apparently experienced but reluctant to answer my questions about the position and refused to give me contact to stay in touch.
    Later I've reached out to the recruiter a few more times, after making me waited for A MONTH this recruiter told me the job will be based in a different location and they'll be looking for candidates from inside.
    Not getting a job was normal and I understand company has different demands. What pissed me off was how slow the whole process went, plus they completely wasted my time. If you want to hire from inside, why not interview internal candidates first and then go outside?

    AVP-Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process consisted of a phone screen with a recruiter and later, an on-site interview with six employees. The process initially moved quickly, but after the final round of interviews took nearly two months to receive an answer. Recruiters are outsourced and very disorganized. It took constant following up with them to get a definitive answer as to my candidacy, thus left a very sour taste (I'd only be told they aren't ready to give an offer but they aren't ready to close the door either). I got the impression the recruiters are too timid/reactionary to ask hiring managers for input/feedback or next steps therefore the process can stall.

    Interview Questions
