FAA Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Houston, TX).

Interview

It was pretty simple. There were a couple of meetings with management, and it's nothing too terrible. That being said, I am comparing this to other intense careers and the interviews that come with those. I wore a dark suit and designer shoes, so potential employees should dress the same.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in July 2014.

    Interview

    The fifteen minute phone screen was scheduled almost immediately after I submitted to the IQ test. The test was pretty simple, straight forwards in nature. The interviewer was very nice and said she would push forward my application to a more in depth interview. The process was pretty reasonable, and I recommend it to most people.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    I was referred to the branch manager by a friend of my fathers. I already had a series 7 so they had me take a personality test which I had passed. A week later I made a business plan in detail with an overview of how I will bring assets and manage my time efficiently. Two weeks later I met with the complex director and branch manager and was offered a position. I received the formal offer a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult, Just my prior experience as a registered representative. The director and branch manager were very friendly and happy to interview me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was shocked on how high the salary was. I was happy to have the opportunity and didn not care much about the salary considering you make a majority of your income from commissions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Canton, OH) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. I was contacted by a recruiter and had phone interview. I then completed online assessment. Met with Branch Manager and then another meeting with the regional director.
    After recieving no offer I was informed that I was qualified and they wanted me but there was only 3 spots available. 1 was taken by a guy the branch manager recruited and the other two were filled by other branches. The candidates already had a book of business they were bringing to the table. I was told that in the next round I will be considered if I was still interested.

    Everybody was very professional and nice. Good experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Dallas, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The process was fine. You go thru an online application, and a few online assessment tests. You then have in person interviews, typically 3-4. It takes around 2-3 weeks. Make sure you have a business plan mapped out in your mind, as you will work on one for the interview.
