    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I was first referred to a contact at the company and sent my resume/cover letter directly to him via email. A few days later, my contact's assistant called me to schedule an in-person interview. The interview took place primarily with one Financial Advisor, while another briefly stepped in to explain unique aspects of the role. The interview went well and the interviewer was very responsive to my questions.

    Negotiation

    I did research before I went in on what others in my role were being paid, on average. I was asked during the interview what I was looking for in terms of pay, and I gave a number. The interviewer agreed that the amount was about average and fair.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Chicago, IL) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Started with a brief phone interview and conversation, about 15 minutes total. Went in for what I thought was going to be the final interview but was not. I was told this was another "pre-screening" that was pretty much an entire interview w/ 2 people and lasting about an hour. Went on to interview AGAIN for a job that is essentially a receptionist job consisting of answering phones and data entry and pays about minimum wage. Was also told that after the "internship," if I wanted full time employment there, I would have to wait for an opening and apply for it like anyone else.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Grand Rapids, MI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Was just a simple phone interview, got hired on the phone and told me to show up. They only used interns for administrative type stuff so the expectations were fairly low.

    Negotiation

    simple $6 an hour, I think some interns weren't even paid at all.
