    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was 100% through my universities on-campus recruiting. The first round was on campus and the second round was in their NYC office. The first round was primarily fit based. The second round took 4 hours or so and involved meeting people from all different levels. The interviews with the more junior people were technical in nature

    OCR recruiting, mostly fit questions. Couple market questions about housing, interest rates. Couple probability questions involving game theory as they want people who can think on their feet. Superday included 4 back to back interviews with people from different product groups. Some stress testing involved but depends on your interviewer.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the website and addressed the Cover Letter directly to my campus recruiter.

    Received an email for a phone interview one week later with a VP in M&A and a Senior Analyst in FIG.

    Both interviews were standard behavioural questions with some easy technical questions (What are the methods for valuing a company, what's a stock you've been following)

    The HR representative was unprofessional an unorganized. I expected something different from Morgan Stanley. The mid office representatives were friendly. The interview questions were very basic. It seems like they are looking for younger people.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the company's career page. After one week, I received an email asking my availability for an interview. There was little scheduling hiccup. The HR department doesn't seem very organized. I ended up calling a recruiting specialist from NY office because according to her my phone can't be contacted. She asked usual interview questions - "Why did you leave your last job?", "Why Morgan Stanley?". I didn't know I was scheduled for an in person interview until the day before the scheduled interview. I came in and was interviewed for 2 hours by 4 different people - one after the other.
