If you make it past these tests they then have you do a Digital Interview where you record a video answering a set of interview question.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was coding problem tackling phone interview, which makes sense a lot. The interviewer was very helpful and intuitive. Then the second round, the questions were more on knowledge base on some of the jquery functions... I personally think this doesn't really tell my Software experience and ability since these are specific knowledge that you can look up on google. You need to test on how Software Engineer should tackle obstacles and how to proceed the thoughts and things NOT on specific knowledge.

    • Do you know ____? type of questions were nonsense. Give me a question to tackle down not pure knowledge you can find on Google.   Answer Question

    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.
