Associate Developer Interview

Associate Developer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in September 2007.

Interview Details – Very technical interview with several developers from different teams. Be prepared for an interview to last from 3-4 hours. If you make it to an inverview with managers, you have high chance to get an offer. When answering technical questions, be precise and concise. Keep in mind that people who interview you, take their time from work, so it does not help if you stretching your answers. At the same time it is important not to rush and take you time to clarify questions that you think you do not fully understand. No one expects you to answer everything, so even if you don't know the answer, you could explain what would be you approach, which will give extra points. If asked to analyze or write the code on a pice of paper, make sure your answers are clear and easy to understand. When going to an interview, dress cleanly and professionaly. A tie is perhaps optional, but depends on a position you are interviewing for.
