    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was referred by someone in a different department whom I'd spoken to about a position that had been filled. He liked me enough to refer me on to another group despite the lack of openings in his own group. I then had in-person interviews with three people; a lower-level staffer who would have been my direct manager, the head of the group, and the head of the department.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I've had two phone interviews with two people followed by in-person interview with two people - all within 30 days period. Sr. Manager was also on the in-person interview schedule but had to go to a meeting on a short notice. Overall, my experience was good. Very pleasant people and very relaxed atmosphere during the interview. Questions were asked related to the position I was considered for, i.e. my experience with various aspects of the job. I felt that one person was very prepared for the interview - asked all the right questions. The other person was sort of shooting in all directions without having a specific set of questions in mind.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Morgan Stanley in January 2009.

    Interview

    HR contacted me, it was a reasonably long process, spoke to several different analysts, associates and the human ressources department. the job offer was OK, the pay was not that great but it is a mainly bonus focused industry. would i do it again? probably, especially given there were few alternatives at the time.

    This was a standard one on one interview. I believe I interviewed one on one with three different people for about fifteen minutes each. No remarkable questions. Everything was tailored to get to know you better.
