    The process took a dayinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in September 2011.

    Interview was held with a panel (3 people) and in addition to myself, my competitor for the position as well. We were interviewed together being asked the same questions ranging from personal to info about the company. Did not get the offer due to several reasons (completely my fault) however they were extremely respectful, and it was a good unique experience.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I saw the job posting on school's career website. To prepare for the interview, I read over their website and searched online about the company and the job position and used Vault as a guide. Its an one on one interview. The office is very nice and pretty. There is no team work. People work by themselves, pretty much like a sales person.
