    Interview

    Applied via employee referral. Received an initial phone interview from HR. Questions were standard phone interview questions, overview of professional experience, why Morningstar, why Equity Analyst, etc. At the end of the conversation, was asked to schedule for in-person interview, which was conducted the following week. The in-person interview focused heavily on industry trend, companies and etc and wasn't at all about my professional experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Morningstar (Chicago, IL) in March 2011.

    Interview

    First spoke to HR Recruiter 1:1. Asked the usual fit questions, pored through my resume.

    Then spoke to two analyst (group interview). Also pored through my resume. Asked me about my stock portfolio. Extensive discussion about stock choices, the markets, equity questions related to growth, comparisons, etc. I found this very fun. If you are vying for an equity position and you don't own equity, you will be so screwed.
