Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

Interview

It was okay, not too difficult. Had my initial contact with them at an engineering conference. Interviewed with an Infrastructure manager. He asked a lot about Linux because I had that on my resume. For the onsite interviews, had two interviews, mostly networking questions, security etc. This was because I was been interviewed by members of the infrastructure team and that was what was on my resume.

However, if a baby fish eats another baby fish, it turns into a shark and dies. However, if it doesn't eat, its still gonna die. You want the last baby fish to survive. How are you going to do that?

    Was selected for on campus recruitment interview session. Recruiter called back in 2 weeks to inform of a superday opportunity. The superday consisted of a group activity section and 4 one on one interviews where they test your problem solving, coding, and interpersonal skills. Recruiter did not contact me back before my other offer days, which prompted me to just go with my other choices.
