    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Morningstar (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR to set up a 30 minute phone interview a day or two after submitting my application. The phone interview consisted mostly of questions pertaining to past experiences and why I wanted to work at Morningstar. Exactly a week later I was asked to come in for an interview. On the day of the interview (only four days after I was asked to come in), there were maybe 20 other interviewees there. We all met with four people in one-on-one interviews that lasted a half an hour each. Everybody I spoke with was extremely friendly, laid-back, and intelligent. I came very well prepared, felt that everything went as well as it possibly could have, received positive feedback from everybody I interviewed with and was confident an offer would be extended to me. I was surprised when I received an email about a week and a half later saying I had not been chosen.

    Interview

    I was asked to complete a Skype interview. The connection was poor and the call cut out after about five minutes. The phone call also had extremely poor reception. I could barely hear anything the recruiter was saying and I doubt she heard anything I said at all (she repeatedly asked me to repeat myself). I don't know what was wrong, but I emailed immediately after and offered to clarify things via email or to recall from a different line. I'm email was ignored.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Morningstar (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews, both entirely behavioral. The interview questions were very standard and unimaginative: - Tell us about a time you worked in a team - When was a time you failed, and what did you do about it? - Do you prefer to work in teams or alone? The final round is arranged as a super day with around 20-30 applicants. You each have three one on one behavioral interviews and then given a group presentation on an assigned topic relating to Morningstar products.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Morningstar (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    First interview was on campus with a recruiter, strictly behavioral. About three weeks later, I was invited to the Morningstar office in Chicago for final rounds. Super day consisted of a group case presentation in the morning and one-on-one interviews with managers in the afternoon. The managers were all friendly and highly intelligent. Mostly behavioral questions, such as "what business would you start with 10000 dollars?" One of the interviews was a business strategy discussion as well.

    Interview

    Applied through my college. The interview was very straight forward, and comprised entirely of behavioral questions. The interviewer was friendly, and the entire interview ended up being quite conversational. There was a large emphasis on teamwork, experience as a leader, and dealing with difficult team members. Thought that the interview went well, but didn't get a call-back.
