I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2012.
Pretty easy questions... some simple brain teasers... a lot of questions on how much you know about the markets... nothing that reading Bloomberg for a few weeks couldn't teach you
- Nothing really... only technical questions were probability questions asked by some trader on the exotic interest rates desk Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in September 2008.
It took many months of cold calls, and informational "meet and greet" interviews just to land a real interview. Most questions related to market related information, thoughts on the economy, and personal background / experience. Additionally, a description of the position was provided. Mental math questions (square root of .1, square root of 400,), brainteasers, etc. Interviewed with 6 people, one on one back to back, then several two on ones. Basically, multiple rounds (phone, several one on ones lasting a few months, followed by a full afternoon of back to backs.) Difficult but not excruciating- if you THOUROUGHLY prepare.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (London, England (UK)) in February 2009.
After a few one to one interviews, we're invited to a day-long "assessment." It started with some math/verbal reasoning multiple choice tests, then some one on one interviews. Then there was a team exercise where they divided us into a team of about 8 and gave us various scenarios to deal with. The feedback I got afterwards was that they wanted to see people who were cooperative, and the "leaders" were ones who made sure everyone had a chance to contribute, not necessarily the ones that talked to most. We had some social activities where we mingled with current employees. It lasted a full day, and some interviewees were showing exhaustion. I think that was part of the goal, to see how we look like after a long day.
