Rather smooth and straightforward phone screening process that had not taken more than 15-20. Typical screening questions with a very detailed history of the company, the role you have applied for and its significance.

    Interview

    I got an interview with this firm though different recruiters. They asked me a lot about credit ratings and financial statements. This internship seemed to be geared very much towards an accounting major. They saw my background is equities more as a deterrent than an asset when it came to working with debt.

    Interview

    Applied through college career site, and heard back in 2 weeks. Had an on-campus interview that lasted 30 minutes. The interviewer was very nice, and we mainly talked about why I was interested in S&P and went into more detail about the rotational program. Also went over my resume, and how it related to the job position. Overall, it was a very relaxed interview, and I'm waiting to hear back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Global Ratings (Singapore (Singapore)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was quite straightforward, had to apply online - few basic questions and resume drop. This was followed by a screening call by the HR asking you questions on yourself, motivations for joining, and language proficiencies. Moved onto a face to face interview with two ratings directors from sovereign side and the insurance division. Will be interviewing with managing directors in the next round.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at S&P Global Ratings (London, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    applied for two roles in Europe. I received an email from HR in London willing to discuss my background and experience. One minute before the phone interview was going to take place, I received an e-mail that it was rescheduled for the following day.
    The call was a normal HR interview:I was talking about my education, professional experience, skills etc. The interviewer said that my profile matched their requirements and I will be considered for the next steps. He also mentioned to be leaving for holidays for two weeks but he told me that someone would contact me regarding the recruitment process. Obviously noone contacted me. When two weeks passed, I contacted the interviewer but he didn't reply. I e-mailed him again a week later, and he responded that there were no vacancies available at that time.
    Then, around 2 weeks later I received another call from him. He said that he would like to discuss my background and experience as my profile seemed interesting for them....he didn't even registered that we had talked before.
    I was waiting for their call for over a month but it seems that they already forgot me at the moment when the initial interview took place...
