Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

I've had two phone interviews with two people followed by in-person interview with two people - all within 30 days period. Sr. Manager was also on the in-person interview schedule but had to go to a meeting on a short notice. Overall, my experience was good. Very pleasant people and very relaxed atmosphere during the interview. Questions were asked related to the position I was considered for, i.e. my experience with various aspects of the job. I felt that one person was very prepared for the interview - asked all the right questions. The other person was sort of shooting in all directions without having a specific set of questions in mind.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I was given a behaviorial interview for the beginning stages of the position. I was never again contacted to be notified of whether or not I was declined or accepted for an on-site interview. Needless to say, I was rather disappointed with the moral of the company to not even have the decency to send an e-mail to aware me of the situation, even after I had reached out more than once.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was referred by someone in a different department whom I'd spoken to about a position that had been filled. He liked me enough to refer me on to another group despite the lack of openings in his own group. I then had in-person interviews with three people; a lower-level staffer who would have been my direct manager, the head of the group, and the head of the department.
