    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.
