    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.

    Reconciliation Utility Control Specialist- Firmwide Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    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.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Morgan Stanley in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    First written test, then onsite with 3 analysts from Morgan Stanley. Very nice people and place to work. Basic stochastic questions, probabilities, and some brain teasers.
    toss a fair coin until you get two heads in a row and find the
    probability of tossing 5 times. (My answer is 3/32 which did not appear in
    the available four numbers, getting a little frustrated)

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interview were behavioral questions and the second interview too with managers. Question like "why morgan stanley?" "conflicts with a co worker? and how did I resolve the situation?" The process was pretty similar to any other financial service company. First interview is a piece of cake. Second interview was a bit more technical questions but nothing big. For operations, the interviews are pretty straight forward.
