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

    I applied for the investment banking summer analyst position in November 2013. They asked me lots of behavior questions instead of technical ones. Basically, they asked me questions such as "why IBD". "tell me any deals you are interested at / done by Morgan Stanley in the past few years"

    Phone interview for first round. The interviewer was nice but she drilled on every single details of my answers. She asked "How to solve the Euro crisis?" I gave her my view but she was skeptical about it. Be sure to know what you actually mean when you are claiming something or putting forward an opinion. The interviewer will ask follow up questions.

    First round phone interview. I was informed of the interview 2 days prior. The person on the phone was nice but the majority of the questions were technical. Only one fit question - 'Tell me about yourself' and all technical after that.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Morgan Stanley in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Great process, tough to get past first round, but once you do, it all comes down to personality and whether you are a good fit with the firm. Once they give you an offer, are aggressive in trying to get you to sign, as expected.
