I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in October 2010.
Interview Details – After submitting my resume, I was scheduled for a phone interview. The interviewer asked general market questions including who the current US Secretary of Treasury was, which companies failed during 2008, and what VAR stood for. The next day I was asked to come in for a half day of interviews. I met one-on-one with 5 different employees. The interviews ranged from traditional questions to technical questions. They were all extremely friendly.
