Financial Data Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Moody's Corporation (New York, NY (US)).

Interview

The interview consisted of a phone screen with HR which consisted solely on accounting questions. They let you know pretty quickly if you get the super-day. I then met with a couple of managers who asked accounting based questions as well as behavioral questions. The people i interviewed with overall were very nice. I guess the best thing to do is try to relate with them since not only is the interview testing your knowledge, it is also testing whether you are someone they want to sit next to for 50+ hrs. The accounting question tend to be repetitive for obvious reasons.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Moody's Corporation (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online and received invitation for phone interview 1 week later. The phone interview was with a director asking me tougher questions than I thought, mostly technical, and not friendly at all. He seemed like he was in a rush to move on to next task on his calender. A week later I received email for final round. I asked the recruiter for interview info, it took her a while to get back to me. But the final in person interview was great and they were friendly. I met 6 people in the team and the HR was very friendly and agreed to send me emails of all 6 interviewers. But I've never received HR's email. They never got back to me even after I followed up 2-3 times. The way they treat the interviees tells how they treat their employees and I have no interest in working at this firm regardless of the firm reputation.

    Very friendly and professional interviewers. Had a good overall experience, although process was quite lengthy with multiple interviews and tests. Generally interview was for a large part bases on basic behavioral questions, but also accounting and credit skills.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Moody's Corporation (New York, NY (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The whole process started when I got an email on August 5th, 2019. I had an easy phone interview the next day. The interview was mostly technical with basic questions based on financial statements. I've scheduled an in-person interview for August 14th. The in-person interview was with three people from Moody's half an hour each. It included technical as well as behavioral questions. Be ready for questions like "Tell me about the time you've .......". I answered technicals with ease, but I did poorly on behavioral questions.

    Interview

    Two-round interview. First round, HR called me and ask some accounting/finance questions. Suggestion: review CFA level I accounting/equity/corporate finance/fixed income + some municipal bond knowledge. 2nd round is the in-person interview/super day. Half technical half behavioural. They like candidates who have strong accounting knowledge.
