The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in December 2011.
I applied by sending my resume and agreeing online to show up to their "open house" so to speak. It was a group of 7 applicants in one room, the hiring manager explained what the company does and the what the position includes. Each applicant met with two interviewers for a quick 10 min interview and then were sent home, we were to fill out the application online and complete the assessment if not already done. The hiring manager never called me back and when I was able to finally get in contact with him he said he never received my application in his email and they had already made their decision.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Chicago, IL) in April 2011.
Applied for the position that was posted online. Shortly after sending the email, a recruiter based in NY replied and asked for copy of the resume posted on Morgan Stanley's career website and scheduled for a phone interview the same day. The recruiter is very nice yet professional and scheduled a one-on-one interview the following week with a Regional Director. The Regional Director basically laid out the cards on the table on how the position entails so you will know what to expect if the position is offered. All in all, it was a productive interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Chicago, IL) in September 2010.
This interview consisted of a surprise group interview of which there were basic interview questions such as: "tell me a stressful situation and how did you deal with it" "what is your favorite non-business class" "tell me about a time you set goals for yourself and the steps you took to achieve them" Then, it was a phone interview which consisted of just the interviewee asking questions, you had to have good questions to ask. Lastly, the third interview consisted of a big surprise, the group had left Morgan-Stanley and formed a business themselves and were looking for interns for their new Wealth management company the whole time.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Chicago, IL) in August 2010.
I applied through my school's career website. They called me a few days later, scheduled an interview. The interviewer asked about my past leadership and intensively explained the niche of their firm and nature of the internship. He was prepping me for a lot of cold calling and told me that its a "necessary evil" of the industry, and that it would be worth it to have their name on my resume for future employers.
