I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in September 2012.
Interview Details – 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.

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.
