Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (India, TX).

Interview

There was 8 round of interview.

- First of three rounds were telephonic and technical in nature which were taken by Associate,Senior Associate and Leads. Be ready to answer technical questions related to your work environment and day to day job. Each of these interview lasted for about an hour each. These interviews are scheduled over a period of 3 weeks.

I was given with the results after a month and they asked me to comedown to MS office for a super day.

- 4th to 8th interviews were covered in MS office in a super day. Which accounted for 4 hours in total.

- Fourth and Fifth round of interviews was with Onshore manager and Regional manager. This was more of situation based and managerial kind of interviews.

- Sixth round was with VP who grinded me with lot of technical questions.

- Seventh round was with GM of respective department who was more keen to check my background.

- Last round was with the HR who will check your professional fitment,current salary details and expected salary details. Question like why do you want to move? Why MS? How do you manage conflict? Etc...

Recruitment team keeps very busy and the result was announced after about three weeks. I wasn't selected, but a memorable experience with all interviewers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the corporate website. I received an email a few weeks later to schedule an interview. I met with 2 directors and a VP for each interview. I had a total of 4 different interviews. Of the four interviews, I never received a rejection letter/email. The recruiters are horrible at responding to phone calls or emails for a status update, even when they give you their phone numbers to contact them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I went to an on-site interview. I was interviewed by 5 people, each of whom took about 40 minutes. They were very kind and tried their best to make the environments as comfortable as possible. They did not expect me to answer all the questions. They gave me reasonable hints along the way. The difficulty level gradually increases.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    Interview was standard...a phone screen and a couple in house interviews to meet with different members of the team. Everyone was very friendly - but the process itself took very long. Biggest complaint was that my contact in recruiting was not very knowledgeable on the role and couldn't really answer many of my questions. The interviews made up for that but it took a while.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about my experience and path and assessed my fit for what was on the job spec... standard questions that made sense...nothing too tricky.   Answer Question

    On-site interview for a full day with six people one-on-one, about one hour each. For the first five to ten minutes, I was asked some general questions about my resume, after that mostly brain teasers, some finance/options questions and coding questions.
