    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Professional, very corporate, a weird interview with a lot of unusual questions, not related to business or my 12 years in accounting. Other than that, they wanted to ask about where I lived, family, just general stuff to see what kind of person I was and how I would relate to other people. The interview was really difficult it was just very odd and unusual.
