Interview Details – Applied online and didn't have to do a first round phone interview.

They said that afterwards, they would be in contact within 2 weeks and I got a call one week later with notification.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in May 2012.

Interview Details – Applied through my school website, got contacted about 2 weeks later. Came into the office and had a very informal interview and was basically asked if I was energetic/outgoing. Fairly easy but caught me off-guard. Very short interview process too--just showed me the office and asked if I had any questions. Overall, very happy company.

Interview Question – Are you energetic?   Answer Question
