    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DBRS Morningstar (Toronto, ON) in May 2018.

    I came in and sat with the HR Recruitment team located in Toronto. The individuals I met with were professional and very easy to speak with. They reinforced my overall positive impression of the company.

Company Updates

  • DBRS team members participated in a global townhall earlier this month, alongside their Morningstar Inc. (Nasdaq: MORN) colleagues, to hear Detlef Scholz and other senior management's strategic plans. Detlef was named president of the combined DBRS and Morningstar Credit Rating team effective August 1. The leadership announcement came as Morningstar, a leading provider of independent investment research, recently completed its acquisition of DBRS, the world's fourth largest credit ratings agency, for a purchase price of US$669 million. Employees wore T-shirts that symbolized the unity of the teams.

  • In December, DBRS staff in Canada got into the holiday spirit. A friendly competition between a number of teams across the three floors collected toys for the annual Toronto Fire Fighters Toy Drive. In total, 280 toys were donated.
