    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings.

    Interview

    The first interview lasted about 2 hours. I met with 4 people for 30 min each. It was a very casual setting. No fancy questions, just pretty much going over my resume so the interviewers could learn a little more about who I am. I met with 3 people that worked in the group I was applying for and one person from HR.

I emailed to remind him, the next day he called me and it was awkward because the connection was bad, and he said he would call back in 15 mins, but he never did.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I got a phone interview for an analyst position in NYC. I was contacted by a recruiter. The interview only lasted for a few minutes. I'm an international student and my OPT lasts for one year. The recruiter said that he's impressed by my resume, but he needed to ask their immigration attorney before we talked about anything else and he would get back to me. However, he didn't get back to me. I sent an email to him later and asked about the visa issue. He didn't reply to me. The recruiter was very irresponsible in my eyes.
