Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in March 2010.

Interview

Two initial phone calls with HR, then two separate phone interviews first with one person, then two in succession. Then there was one in person interview with the hiring manager and other managers taking turns, with a coding exercise, and finally a second in person personality type interview with HR to figure out if you would be a good fit in the organization, how much you want the job and try to figure out your salary requirements.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in June 2010.

    Interview

    It was a long process. I had 3 rounds of interviews. In the first round I met one person, then in the 2nd round 6 and finally in the 3rd round I met 3 people. That makes it 10 individuals individually for 30 min each. I am yet to receive a final response.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Long interview process emcompassing 14 different interviews so far, starting with phone screening, 11 face-to-face interviews, 1 phone interview with manager in London, and 1 final interview with Human Resources. Interviews tended to be technical, with many skills tests including programming exercises, financial questions, and multiple "brain-teasers" testing problem-solving skills. Interviews were mostly with the group in which I'd be working as well as with a few individuals in related groups. There was also some personality screening. Tough interviews in general.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in September 2009.

    Interview

    Took about a week to arrange the phone interview. The interviewer cancelled it 30 minutes before the interview. I made an effort to reschedule the interview. Interview itself was very short, only like 10-15 minutes. No questions beyond "take me through your resume." From that it was about a week and a half until I received feedback. Feedback was especially rude, condescending, and inappropriate. Did not seem to cover the few points made during the interview.

    Interview

    Several rounds of interviews. Not direct on whether there is or is not a position available. They like when you do the talking rather then them talking the entire time.
