    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview in early January which mainly asked about resume and some reasonable technical questions. The interview started with my past experiences and then asked about proofs in one of the courses I took. He seemed very busy and wanted to end conversation quickly. The overall experience is neutral, but the fact it ended hastily made me feel not good.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in October 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out the application online and received an email from the recruiter the next day wanting to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was pleasant and brief just asking about myself and asking if I had any questions about the company. I was then immediately scheduled for a face-to-face interview two days later. That interview was also very brief they asked me what I like to do for fun and asked if I had any more questions about the company. It seemed to go okay I was told that I would hear back within 2 days and I'm currently waiting.
