Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview

The interviewee is Upenn's alumni, also a very nice guy. First we both did some introduction, and then he asked me why my major was different from my undergraduate major(I am a master now). After some questions about past experience, we started coding.

    Within one week after I applied, I got an email from a recruiter regarding scheduling phone interview. Process was clear and fast. Because their process is moving quickly, I had interview with not the recruiter but directly with an associate on the strategy team.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had one brief phone interview with HR then was invited to super day two weeks later. On-site interviews consisted of four 1-on-1's with HR, a senior manager, and two VPs. They ask about Morgan Stanley's core values. Make sure you are able to provide examples of how you align with their core values. It took them forever to make a decision. HR was often unresponsive.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website in early Fall and was invited to a Super Day in December. MS already had another Super Day for this program in October. The Super Day consisted of 4 20 minute interviews with one break. The first interviewer was extremely picky, persistent, and serious. He asked tough math questions and brainteasers that could be prepared for using Vault Guides/online resources. The other 3 were more pleasant; mostly asking behavioral and resume questions about my experiences, with a few general market and technical questions. Those that were accepted heard back right after the weekend. Got the rejection call a month later.
