    Interview

    It was a very basic interview, behvior style questions with three interviewers to in person and one via phone. There was not out of the normal for the interview. They have a lot young people in director poristions at Morgan Stanley. That was definitely different. I cannot remember the last time I was older than the person interviewing me. Everyone was professional. It appeared to be a decent working enviroment. That is only things that is difficult to gage when interviewing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Received the interview through a recruiter. This company was very organized and responsive in terms of scheduling the interview and responding within 2 to 3 days about whether I made it to the next round.
