I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Montreal, QC) in Oct 2020

Interview

I had 4 interviews in total. The first round was a 30 minute technical interview on Zoom. The interviewer asked me questions about my experience and then followed up with some technical questions related to my experience. This was followed by an easy coding question. The second round had two 60 minute technical interviews. There were two interviewers per interview, one asking the main questions and a second "shadowing" the main one. I had to answer trivia questions about multiple subjects like concurrent programming, polymorphism, data structures and SQL. I had one coding question per interview. Both were common easy leetcode questions. The final interview was a phone discussion with the hiring manager to talk about the firm and check if you are a good fit.

Interview Questions
  • Explain the different types of joins in SQL.
  • What is polymorphism? Can polymorphism occur outside of OO programming?
  • What is a deadlock? How can you prevent deadlocks? Can a single thread/process be deadlocked with itself? How?
  • Explain what the GIL is in Python.
  • Can you have a memory leak in a language with garbage collection like Java? Give an example.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in Sep 2020

Interview

This is the worst interview I've EVER had. My interviewers showed up 10 minutes late, started asking me questions on topics that I explicitly stated I had no knowledge. Then they made me SCREENSHOT the coding problem and type it on my own IDE, instead of sending a collaborative coding environment where they could see them type. I wrote my code in 5 minutes, and then they literally didn't let me test my code they just jumped into questions about garbage collecting and behavioral questions. THEN, they proceeded to grill me questions about security encryption even though I told them I had just started taking a class in it this semester. Worst interview ever.
