Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in January 2011.

Interview Details

4 interviews at 30 mins each. Sorta a waste of time only to be outshined by an ivey leaguer - questions were mostly personality based with very little technical knowledge questioned or sales skills needed - simply pitching yourself

Have read a recent book that you can talk about, know some basic economics and youre good

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first Interview was a phone interview, relatively short (30-40 minutes).
    Why Morgan Stanley, Why Sales, Sell yourself...Why the specific location?...simple, clean questions that you're supposed to prepare.
    The second interview was a panel interview, 3 individuals (1 hr, 2 associates)
    Around 45mins-1hour
    Basically the same questions as the first phone interview, but with added stock pitch and other behavioral questions. Should be relatively smooth. Questions about other pending offers, be honest.
