    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was perhaps 40-45 minutes long and majority of the interview was resume based. The two interviewers were very nice and personable. It was held at World Trade Center 7 and their offices are quiet but beautiful.

    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, Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online(cannot remember what job board) and was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was basic about 15 mins long. Then a few days later i was contacted by another recruiter who wanted to schedule the in person interview,she mentioned it would be with 3 to 4 people of the company. I had previously interviewed at the company a couple years back so i already knew that.(The first time, it was literally the most draining experience ever...I was there for 2 1/2 hours-didnt get the job of course).

    Anyway, back to the current interview, this time the in person interview was with the following:
    VP of the service team-30 minutes
    AVP recruiter-30 mins
    2 service team associates-30 to 45 mins

    Overall this interview was not as draining, but still took a while(over 1.5 hour) and each interviewer wanted me to go over my resume/background and what I am looking for as my next job/career path and why I chose HR. The questions are very general/basic.

    The interview process is way too long, if they do this lenght of interviews daily, do they actually get any real work done?

    No offer, yet.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The firm first interviewed a number of candidates with one senior person after their in-house recruiter did an initial screening. Once the first interview was over a smaller number of candidates came back to meet more people after which a final offer will be made to one candidate.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Moody's (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Waited 40 minutes until someone was ready to interview me. Was directed to walk there by myself. Everyone was friendly and asked a lot of questions about my background and experience. No one had a copy of my resume but I brought copies. They didn't have a note pad to take notes but some of them wrote notes on my resume during it. I thought it went well but didn't hear back until I emailed the recruiter for an update. A different recruiter emailed me back that they were looking into other candidates.
