    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview and was asked to come in the same day for an in person interview. I was interviewed by several people ranging from former interns to Financial Planners. The employees and the office were both very professional. However, when I asked questions to each interviewer I was always given different responses. They were unable to give me an exact start date and there seemed to be some disorganization on the logistics of the position. I was told that I would hear back by the beginning of the next week and I did not hear back until 2-3 weeks later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Chicago, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through my school website, got contacted about 2 weeks later. Came into the office and had a very informal interview and was basically asked if I was energetic/outgoing. Fairly easy but caught me off-guard. Very short interview process too--just showed me the office and asked if I had any questions. Overall, very happy company.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I applied by sending my resume and agreeing online to show up to their "open house" so to speak. It was a group of 7 applicants in one room, the hiring manager explained what the company does and the what the position includes. Each applicant met with two interviewers for a quick 10 min interview and then were sent home, we were to fill out the application online and complete the assessment if not already done. The hiring manager never called me back and when I was able to finally get in contact with him he said he never received my application in his email and they had already made their decision.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Chicago, IL) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Applied for the position that was posted online. Shortly after sending the email, a recruiter based in NY replied and asked for copy of the resume posted on Morgan Stanley's career website and scheduled for a phone interview the same day. The recruiter is very nice yet professional and scheduled a one-on-one interview the following week with a Regional Director.

    The Regional Director basically laid out the cards on the table on how the position entails so you will know what to expect if the position is offered. All in all, it was a productive interview.
