Please describe the interview / hiring process.

Interviewed with the Default & Ratings Analytics team. The position is about validating the performance of Moody's credit rating. First screening interview by outsourced recruiter, then by a team member, then onsite interview with 4 30-min interviews. Was declined as I failed to answer the programming questions and I did not come from a programming background. I was also caught off-guard by statistics questions as I did not think the job was overly technical and therefore did not prepare extensively for it. One of the interviewer drilled me on unnecessary questions, such as asking for the valuation multiples of an industry I covered in an internship 2 years ago. Overall, the interview felt impersonal but I still liked some of the interviewers nonetheless.
