    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    First interview on campus and was a one on one interview with basic "tell me about yourself" questions.

    2nd interview was in New York and consisted of 2 one on one interviews which were more behavioral style (tell me about a time you had to work with a difficult person on a project, how did you handle the situation" basically them looking for you to respond in STAR format.

    The 3rd part of the 2nd interview was a group activity. This changes every year but its basically trying to see how you work in a team. The instructor reads off the instructions to the team and after that you are completely left on your own to work through the assignment. After the approximate 30 mins you have to work on the assignment you then have to present it to the 8-10 ppl that have been in the room watching you work through the problem the entire time. During the time you working on the assignment none of those individuals are able to answer any of your questions they are strictly there to observe you interact in a team. This is great way to see how well you work in a team and collaborate, however it's also a great way to step out and be a leader without being too assertive and aggressive .

    Interview Questions
    • To be honest didn't have any really difficult or unexpected questions they were all your standard behavioral question. The question that stood out the most was in the group activity each person was asked of everyone on the team who would you work with again and why. It really put everyone on the spot.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They were accommodating to giving me time to decide. I took the offer and bonus and did not look to negotiate further.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Consisted of: 1:1 Phone Interview - broad - asked "What does an investment bank do?", relevant experience, basic stuff. Very easy going. Received an e-mail the same day asking to come in for the superday. Superday consisted of two 30 minute back-to-back interviewers with 'good cop'/'bad cop'. Then, getting into a group with 4 other interviewees and given a business problem - how to design a road map to relieve congestion in a crowded city. First they told us to separate into two groups, then halfway through told us we all had to merge together. Finally, present design to interviewees (who are all standing around the room watching us like lab rats), all must talk. Then, go around the room and say who was a leader and who you would want to work with.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a difficult situation you experienced
      Give me a time you showed leadership
      If you knew you wanted to go into Finance, why didn't you go to the business school (? this one threw me off..)
