Credit Risk Summer Analyst Interview
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).
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.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.
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.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2012.
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.
