    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online and completed the tests. Received an email from HR telling me they would be giving me a call a week later. An HR girl phoned up but was rather rude and clearly not interested in speaking with me, gave me quick overview of the logistics of the programme and then asked me why I wanted to work for Morgan Stanley, followed by a question about what it is operations do. She obviously didn't like my answer (said I was being too vague) and when I tried to clarify what I meant she cut me off mid-sentence saying she would get back to me within five working days and hung up.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)).

    Interview

    Phone Interview first, then 3 interviews in person. However, the 3rd interview never happened. Seeing how I've never heard back from the people who interviewed me, or from the recruiter, I guess they were just not interested and they made up their mind at that point.

    I'm not disappointed about not being selected, that's life, but after taking a day off to go meet them I would think the least they could do is have the professional courtesy to at least send an email saying "You are not a match, thanks for coming".

    Interview Questions

    • Generic questions about Linux, Git, programming concepts, Jenkins, configuration management, continuous integration...   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Filled in the forms, did the tests, phone interview. Told I couldn't apply as I had a 2:2 bachelor's in Biology and my master's degree distinction with finance modules didn't change that. The interviewer suggested it was dumb but that's the rules. Obviously disappointed but this was on the first form I filled for them two months ago and they could have saved me a lot of time

    Operations Analyst Industrial Placement Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The first stage is to submit an application answering a few motivation questions. Then as soon as that is submitted I was invited to take online tests. Two days afterwards I was called and was invited to a strength based telephone interview, which lasted for around 50 minutes. I was called the following day and was invited to an Assessment Centre. The Assessment Centre was really nice and relaxed. I had two 45 minute, strength based interviews with a tour of the building in between. Then followed a group work assignment for roughly 50 minutes. The day also had a 15 minute networking break with other students on their Assessment Centre. Overall the process was quite enjoyable and the staff there were exceptionally friendly.
