    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Keegan (Atlanta, GA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with three people in the investment banking division. Two were all behavioral and one was more technical. The technical questions were all regarding stuff on my resume, no predetermined ones. The guys were nice for the most part. I felt like they had a regimented system where two were meant to be easy and one was tough. Because of Morgan Keegan's pending sale, it was kind of awkward and I didnt ask them any questions about it. They never mentioned it either but did say they had their best year yet this year and dont forsee much changing in the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Keegan (New Orleans, LA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    One interview, very laid back, talked more about football than banking, only asked about my experience with Bloomberg and at my last job. Office is very casually, some short sleeve button down shirts, polos and khakis on Fridays. As intern interacted with managing directors on daily basis and addressed them by first name, very collegial, flat organization

    Banking Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Keegan (Boston, MA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    First Round interview consisted of eight 30 minute interviews with groups of two people each time. Questions ranged in difficulty by group since some asked merely background questions to understand personality and see how you responded, while others asked for how you would valuate specific companies (such as one that had no record of revenues) and pretty run-of-the-mill accounting questions. I received one market-sizing question, which was "how many people are flying in the United States at a given point in time?"

    Risk Management Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Keegan (Memphis, TN) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty basic. Questions to expect would be where do you want to be in five years? What are your goals? How long do you plan to stay with the company? The people seemed nice, and I felt the interview did go well, and I was extremely qualified for the position. However they did not bother to let me know one way or another as they promised, even after I sent a thank you note and a follow up email, to me it's rude when a company does that.
