Associate - Technology Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview Details

Pretty straightforward interview process. Two phone interviews followed by 3 on site interviews.
Was kept waiting for more than a week after the first phone screen. But once they got back, things moved pretty quickly from second phone screen to the onsite and to the offer. It was all within a week.
The interviews are all fairly technical. Knowing some of the core CS concepts will be necessary such as time complexity of certain data structures. Some preparation on CS fundamentals will be helpful.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus recruiting board and then was asked for attending on-campus interview. The interviewer was very nice and was an alum. Two coding questions about finding prime numbers and permutations. He was impressed by my combinational background since I didn't study anything related to CS before. The Superday happened 10 days after the on-campus interview in NYC. There were group activities and two rounds of interviews. The first one is an indian female who wasn't concentrated at all when I was answering those behavioral questions she asked. I was a little bit offended. Then my another originally assigned interviewer didn't show up due to bad traffic, and the recruiter assigned me another interviewer on the spot. Just an easy math question and asked for coding on paper. However, I didn't realize what he really asked until it was finished.

    If you didn't receive the follow up less than one week. Often times you got rejected.

    Spoke with four guys. Everybody sounded very positive about their position and development potential within the firm. Position was for a .NET programmer. Questions were all very basic conceptual questions about the language features, either you know it or you don't, nothing tricky. There was one guy that focused on problem solving and algorithm questions.
