    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (Chicago, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    A friend of mine was already employed there and was asked to find suitable candidates for an intern position with one of the wealth management teams. He passed my resume on to his higher ups and I got a call shortly after. We arranged a time for me to come in for an interview. The interview itself was pretty relaxed. It included me and my two potential bosses. We just talked about what I did at my last internship and that turned in to a natural feeling conversation. It didn't take very long and they kept it very friendly, which I really enjoyed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (San Antonio, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The interview went very smoothly. It was a lot less structured than I had expected. The stockbroker had seemed more concerned about finding a perfect fit than someone intelligent enough for the position. With my finance background, it seemed more important to impress with my personality. Overall I was very satisfied, but it may differ from broker to broker.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a financial advisor, who I was referred to through family connections. He was very cordial and did not press too hard with questions. Most of the questions were about my previous experience at UBS during my internship spring semester, and asking me what I knew about the markets and certain questions about financial products.
