    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    25 minute interview. Asked typical IB questions. Know basics of 3 valuation techniques and you should be ok. HR was very bad in dealing with scheduling/follow up. Liked my interviewers and was told I did well then didn't hear anything for a few weeks, I asked them and they replied they were having HR difficulties so their process was delayed/messed up.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied early and got a phone screen with a University alum. Call was pretty easy and basic, mostly fit questions and thought it went fairly well. Thought I had been rejected because I didn't hear back from MS until recently that I am through to the next round -- definitely got moved from early track to regular track though

    Superday was four thirty minute interviews. Fairly behavioral in nature and not looking to scare you just normal conversations. Overall good experience, friendly employees and not something to over think. Just be yourself and you will be fine.

    First round interview was through the phone and an analyst or associate just tries to get to know you better and ask questions about your resume. If you pass, then you get a super day where you get interviewed by a few people with more detailed questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, there's a resume screen. I didn't have any contacts, but I suspect that most successful applicants have their resumes flagged by an employee. After that, I had a phone interview with an employee. She was very nice, and asked basic questions about my resume, about "why Morgan Stanley?" along with a "what's going on in the markets?" Then, I was invited to the superday in New York. They pay for your transportation etc., but keep the receipts! The superday consisted of a total of 5 interviews over the course of a few hours, with a couple of breaks. All of them were one-on-one. The interviewers were of mixed experience/fatigue. I could tell that some of them hadn't slept much recently. The interview questions were almost all "tell me about yourself"-type questions. Very easy. Be prepared with the usual "why MS" stuff as well. I heard back three weeks later that I hadn't been selected. Overall, fine experience, fun interview.
