    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online having attended several on campus days. Received online tests and then proceeded to phone interview, which was strength based and quite relaxed, asking about CV stuff.
    Then proceeded to assessment day at Canary Wharf offices. Was a lot more relaxed than I expected, with a surprise case study, but I actually enjoyed that. Also a group exercise about company's values then a 1:2 interview.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online and completed the tests. Received an email from HR telling me they would be giving me a call a week later. An HR girl phoned up but was rather rude and clearly not interested in speaking with me, gave me quick overview of the logistics of the programme and then asked me why I wanted to work for Morgan Stanley, followed by a question about what it is operations do. She obviously didn't like my answer (said I was being too vague) and when I tried to clarify what I meant she cut me off mid-sentence saying she would get back to me within five working days and hung up.
