Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (San Francisco, CA) in February 2014.

Interview

First round was phone call that was primarily behavioral with a few easy technical questions. Second round was at the office and there were 6 back to back interview. There were more technical questions this round and they might ask you to actually do something on Excel. However, prepare for behavioral as well. They will also ask some hypothetical scenario questions.

    On campus interview, 30 minutes, one on one, still waiting to hear back. Submitted my resume through university's career website. The night before interview, networking session was organized at their headquarters where they told us more about the positions and we were free to ask questions. Very nice and friendly people.

    I applied in mid december and got a phone interview request in early January. Pretty standard interview that was with two people on the phone. They asked basic fit and some technical questions (how to value a company). I did not get invited to a second round interview or superday.

    Interview

    The first round interview was held on campus with two interviewers. It consisted of three in depth technical questions based around understanding of the balance sheet, income statement, and CF statement. The was super day held in the MS NYC office with 3 separate interviews. Each one had a different focus (fit, technical, and general knowledge). The technical questions in this round focused primarily on the CAPM model and running a DCF with WACC.

    Interview Questions

    • Walked in and was handed a piece of paper and told to fill in the blanks on the three statements to make them balance. Was not difficult, but then had to analyze the company and walk through various scenarios as to how the current situation was possible.   Answer Question

    Interview with one senior GILT trader and one cross-asset derivatives sales guy. They were both nice. First asked about me in general. What was the most challenging job I ever had and why.
