    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Budapest (Hungary)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, one personal and one technical before I was invited by the HR to go to Budapest to make three more interviews. They didn't offer to reimburse my travel expenses (flights and hotel as I'm not from Hungary). However I had a positive experience with the interviews until that point. For my last interviews I had to spend more than 2 hours with the HR, Manager and the tech guys. My second technical interview wasn't so well but I believe I gave good answers even if I needed a bit more time to think. My coding task worked well but the feedback left to the HR was completely negative. I felt my last interview as a personal insult and a bad joke for all the efforts.. after I heard my feedback on the phone I told the HR that I'm pretty sure that I gave good answers on some of the listed questions. She said she is just reading what the tech guys sent her and now that I know where their office is in Budapest, I can apply again next year.
    Well Thank You!
