Credit Risk Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview Details – OCI interview with the VP of the lending team. Asked behavioral questions, mostly stemmed from the resume. Nothing surprising, easy to prepare. The interviewer was nice. He asked accounting questions, such as describe the relationship between the three statements; how can accounting be used in credit risk analysis. Business school students should be fine.

Interview Question – Describe a terrible decision   Answer Question

Credit Risk Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview Details – First round on campus w/ 2 VPs, very qualitative with one basic accounting question since I don't have a finance background.

Final round was a pre-interview networking reception the night before where you get to speak to your interviewers (very important to make a good/sociable impression) and a superday of one group activity + 3 one-on-one interviews. No technicals but I heard it really depends on the interviewers you get/your background since other candidates were asked some difficult accounting/finance questions.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you felt like you were "slipping through the cracks" and what you did about it.   Answer Question

Credit Risk Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in February 2012.

Interview Details – First round interview with two people on-site. Only about 30 minutes. Mostly behavioral with one or two basic technical questions. They are friendly and not out to trick you or make you feel uncomfortable.

Second round is also on site. There is a networking session the night before and then the actual second round the next day. It is set up as 3 much quicker one-on-one interviews. They are about 10-15 minutes each. Only one person asked a non-behavioral question and it was literally: "if MS was working with an individual, not a company, what would we look at to determine their level of credit risk." Not a hard question. Everything else was: introduce your self, talk about your resume/ pitch your story, and then questions, but really fewer questions and more of a flowing conversation. At this point they just want to know if they like you.

Interview Question – An airline company is replacing their entire fleet of planes. The old planes have zero salvage value and there is no depreciation to deal with. Explain the effect on the the company's financial statements.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate since the terms were on-par with the industry average.
