    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

    Interview

    1st round - interviewed on campus, applied through career website for a different job but got interview for this role. 30 minutes technical interview. Rude interviewers.
    2nd round - brought in for super-day. Had a panel, group activity, then brought into a room with 50 interviewers lined up at tables. Completed three 45 minute interviews. The first one went really well, second was okay, and the third went badly. Some of the interviewers were really rude and didn't understand the type of role I was looking for. None of the employees seemed very happy to work there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (San Francisco, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. Digital interview was something new for me and questions are mainly behavioral. I'm not sure that requiring young financial advisors to have a current network or you fail is the best way to go about things.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    Mostly behavioral and fit question
    There were 3 people involved in an interview
    2people from one team and 1 from the other. The hiring manager told me that they are looking to fill the position quickly so they will be reaching out within a week. However, after a week there was no comment what so ever so I guess I am not chosen.

    Applied through an agency. Took 2 weeks to confirm their interest in me. Had my first round, face to face on a Wednesday. Next was a phone call from a senior manager in England on a monday and a second face to face round interview the very same day.
