Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2015.

Interview

Was referred by an employee, got a call a week later to set up an interview. The questions were simple, all behavioral. They asked me whether or not I had any experience with managing telephones. I assume that they were referring to cold calling, which I had not. It was a quick interview, about 15-20 minutes. Not much focus on the technical. Got an offer 3-4 weeks later.

    Very relaxed interview process, mostly fit and behavioral questions. The interviewer was the head financial advisor of his group and he had one other member of his team with him as well. There were no technical questions involved with the interview process. I waited about 3 weeks later and got a phone call about an internship offer for the academic year.
