Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

Interview

30-minute phone interview. Asked typical questions like, "Why Morgan Stanley?" "Why Investment Banking" and "Walk me through your resume". Interviewer was monotone and emotionless, so it was hard to pick up on his vibe to see if I was doing well or not. Also created awkward pauses to see how i'd respond to them. Very much behavioral based.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of one phone interview and one onsite interview. The phone interview was technical and based on the projects I had mentioned on my resume. The onsite interview consisted of 3 events. First there was a one hour panel, where we spoke with Morgan Stanley (MS) employees who were previously interns. We asked them questions regarding their experience and work at MS. The next event was a group activity where we were divided into teams of 3/4 people and given a task to perform (build a bridge). There were 3 judges who were questioning each team about their decisions, etc. Final event was one-on-one interviews. 4 interviews, 30 mins each, very technical.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    Invited to an on-campus interview. Two 30-minute back-to-back interviews, each with two employees at the division I applied for. Questions were largely unexpected and varied. Seem to have a list of brainteaser-like questions (not necessarily technical but related to finance) that require fast and improvised response.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They were very quick in responding and maintained communication really well. I was stunned to see that the entire process right from phone interview to offer took only 2 weeks. It was one phone interview and then a superday where there is a panel presentation, group activity and then 4 1:1 interviews.

    Interview Questions
