    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Very straightforward interview process, mostly about behavioral skills rather than technical. Intro skills test online, phone interview, three hour interview with the team and writing exam. Process took a few months which was stressful. Never heard back which is why the negative review.

    Interview

    The HR just went through the resumes and asked some questions about the previous internship experience. Then you will be asked about the future plans and short-term goal. There is no behavioral questions and case analysis. The interview ended with your questions towards Fitch Ratings.

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email setting up a phone interview with HR a week later. Two weeks later did two phone interviews with associate directors. After another week went in for a full day of interviews and excel/writing assessments, then a phone interview with senior management later that week. Interviews were almost 100% behavioral and situational/scenario based questions, almost no technical questions. Received offer the week after and had to wait three weeks to start. From first interview to start date took 2+ months.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The whole interview process took about 3 hours. The first hour was a timed writing exercise. You were given a description of a fictitious company and had to write a one-page opinion about the company using key facts. Next was a series of one-on-one interviews, about 30 minutes each. Slightly different angle to each interview but no unreasonable questions.
