I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in March 2010.

Interview Details – Hiring process for MS takes extremely long. For a full time position, you'll most likely meet with the business unit lead, as well as the business unit owner. After that interview, you'll meet with HR. If you get an offer, it might be as long as 2 months after your last interview.

Interview Question – Regular interview questions, nothing special.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in May 2010.

Interview Details – Campus interview was four 30 minute rounds with various managers over two days, followed by a presentation on an undisclosed problem that you must organize with other candidates in the time allotted. The questions are mostly qualitative in nature. Be sure to stress your ability to work with teams, attention to detail and ability to multitask. For the presentation component, it's important to demonstrate that you work well with others and are willing to listen to their ideas.

Interview Question – Tell us why you want to work in operations (ie, know what the department does)   View Answer
