Operations Analyst Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Morgan Stanley in February 2015.
First round was one 30 minute interview. Second round was two 30 minute interviews and a group activity. All behavioral questions, nothing technical. For the group activity we were divided into two groups to work on a problem. Then, they combined the groups and we had to work together to present our solution. For the interview, know what operations does.

The first round was a phone interview. For the most part, they asked behavioral and situational questions. The second round was an all day superday interview. It had several behavioral interviews and a group activity. Overall they were all pretty straightforward types of questions. You should have a good understanding of Morgan Stanley and operations' role in the firm.
- The most unexpected part was the group activity. Answer Question

Campus interview first one on one then call you for a second/ final interview at main office of where your applying. At the office you get 2 one on one interviews mainly behavioral and then one group interview but it could be switched. The group interview could have about 5 to 10 people.

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in October 2014.
Pretty standard campus recruiting procedure: online application, on-campus interview, on-site interview. I was asked the same questions in the on-campus interview as I was in the on-site interviews (I had 2 in one day). I'm not sure if this was a mistake or not, but it made it much easier for me. The on-site interview also included a (very awkward) group assignment during which we had to come up with a new budget for a fictional client. Other than that, interview questions were very standard (describe one time you went above and beyond; describe your biggest flaw; why are you interested in this position, etc.)

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.
