    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Call from HR representative, brief phone interview, then brought into offices for their Super Day final round interviews which consisted of four separate 1/2 hour interviews with members of various departments. Interview questions were surprisingly all very situational/personality based rather than finance-based. Overall, the process was not difficult, but it was definitely intimidating. Interviewed on a Thursday, received offer the following Tuesday. Quick turn around rate.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    Each round of interviews was preceded with a Pre-Night, where you networked with employees in that group.
    First round on-campus interviews, standard questions mostly about resume and why MS.
    Second round was the super day, met with 4 different interviewers all asking standard interview questions, checking resume and financial literacy as well as knowledge about MS and the role. Had a group assignment that day, teamwork related exercise that was heavily monitored.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Very lengthy and slow. The hiring manager was great, but HR was very slow in the process. Ultimately, I received an offer, which I accepted. The interview itself lasted a number of rounds with different people within the group. Most of the interview was via phone with the last interview in person.
