    Had three consecutive Zoom interviews. Two longer and more technical interviews with a greater focus on finance and one HR interview with more generic interview questions. Interviewers were very forthcoming and it wasn't as awkward as many interviews are.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at S&P Global Ratings (Charlottesville, VA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    It was a video interview. There were two interviewers. One of them is the direct supervisor of the internship project, not sure about the role of the other person. The direct supervisor was fine and nice. He gave a detailed explanation of the intern's responsibilities and the example works they have done. The other person was responsible for asking me questions,, in the way that I feel that he didn't care about the answers I gave at all. He didn't make any eye contacts and I am very sure that he was looking at other things while giving me the interview.

    Associate, Structured Finance-ABS Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at S&P Global Ratings (New York, NY) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Round 1 with recruiter; Basic screening
    Round 2 with two senior managers (age around 50-60)
    Round 3 with three analysts (age around late 30s and two in their mid 40s)
    The worst thing about this was the two senior managers had really liked me. The other three analysts had no idea about what they were looking for exactly. So it was a bit confusing and hard to understand their expectations/requirements. And therefore, the questions were all one dimensional -so I basically had to repeat myself to every person.

    Interview Questions

    • Round 3 woman asked me "What happens if prepayments are high?" for someone who has worked in the credit industry for two years and has built cash flow models and investor waterfalls. She even demeaned me by saying "oh so you just make assumptions based on nothing and then you wing it!!!" I could not believe a place like S&P Global with that level of senior analysts berating an interviewee like that. If anything, have the decency to hear me out on my processes for modeling and then ask. Instead, this poor woman who had been there since Bear Sterns and Lehman times-must have been frustrated to no extent as an analyst since the 90s to ask me "what happens if prepays are high". Gah! Very disappointed.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Global Ratings (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Basically nonexistent process with multiple gaps and poorly trained staff. One day that I was scheduled to go to the downtown office, I waited for 45 minutes only to be informed of a "miscommunication" on the schedule day. No apologies were provided. Although I was turned off at the lack of professionalism, I decided to continue with the interview process so that I could decline the offer.
