    interviewed at Morgan Stanley in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    First written test, then onsite with 3 analysts from Morgan Stanley. Very nice people and place to work. Basic stochastic questions, probabilities, and some brain teasers.
    toss a fair coin until you get two heads in a row and find the
    probability of tossing 5 times. (My answer is 3/32 which did not appear in
    the available four numbers, getting a little frustrated)

    Applied to the Operations summer analyst program as a rising junior, even though rising seniors are preferred. Had an initial phone interview which was straightforward questions about interest in operations, team work I had done, general fit, etc etc. Got called for a superday interview in New York, which included 2 interviews with similar questions to the phone interview and a group exercise.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through both my school system and online. It took about six weeks to hear back and then I was contacted for a phone interview. The interview questions were fairly straightforward (resume questions, brainteasers, and a few firm specific questions). I heard back about two days later and was invited to super day the next week. I had four interviews, but the vibe of each was completely different. One interviewer focused purely on why I was interested in finance, one entirely on fit, and two on more technical aspects of the position.

    Submitted resume online earlier this year. Was called on my cell phone for a first round interview, which was pretty standard. Nothing out of the ordinary, just what you would expect from an interview at MS. Then, participated in a Super Day with multiple interviews back to back. Heard the next week.
