    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in November 2016.

    First round phone interview after applying online through university followed by super day where they fly you up to New York. Pretty quick process since the recruiting timeline has been shifted up earlier.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Began with 1 on 1 phone screen with analyst. Very basic/standard technical and behavioral questions, almost lifted directly from the guides.

    Progressed to another phone screen with an MD. Again, mostly standard stuff, although he followed up on questions to test my knowledge and understanding. Was progressed to superday, although I had already accepted another offer so I declined.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online at the end of July and had a first round phone interview in mid-August. Around late August I was notified that I was invited to Superday interviews. The Superday was four back-to-back interviews with one VP, two EDs, and one MD. One of the EDs was tasked with the technical portion of the interview, and the other three interviews were mainly behavioral/fit aside from some basic valuation questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    1 Phone interview (Analyst) + Superday (5 interviews, VP, VP, VP, Associate, Associate)

    Great communication throughout and very quick response after Superday. Basic technical preparation is Key to tick a box during the phone interview, but ultimately they focus on personality and fit so you better be interesting to talk to!
