    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (Chicago, IL (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    1 phone interview screening with HR regarding my resume, experiences, some STAR questions, and overall economic current events knowledge. Within a few days, I was offered the next step: 1 on-site in Chicago (2-interviewer case study + 1 casual interview with an analyst). The case study was short and required a presentation and synthesis of a proprietary article. And then got grilled on my knowledge of basic finance. The casual interview was great to just get to know someone from the firm.

    Talked with many senior directors got referrals. Took skills quiz and failed. Make sure you take the practice tests and take a solid break in-between tests so you don't ware yourself out. Overall don't be afraid to connect with the employees on LinkedIn they are very helpful.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fitch Ratings (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was a very long process that included: HR screening; interviews by Directors from Chicago office; interviews with NYC office; writing sample; special project; 2nd rounds with the NYC office.

    Overall, felt like there was no leadership throughout the process and the scope of the role was not well defined. The interview team also took very long time between each interviews and follow up.
