    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Fairly standard, had phone interviews first, and then got invited for the final round. The Hong Kong team flew over and all the applicants had the interviews in the New York office. Had 3 interviews consecutively with one or multiple interviewers. No technical questions. More about how hungry you are and how informed you are about MS/IBD

    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!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    I had applied through my college careers services. I got a first round face-to-face interview for Investment Banking. The interviewers came down to campus to interview. Interviewers looked generally disinterested right from the word go. Asked only one technical question. Got back to me after almost a month.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in January 2015.

    Interview

    Non-core student, networked my way in. Senior managers asked mostly fit questions (tell me about yourself, why banking, tell me about your previous internship), I had one associate ask me "Value your university and sell it to me" that was the most difficult question, other than that interview was great

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a basic phone interview (in lieu of the traditional on-campus interview) that focused on my background and a few simple technical questions. After that, I had a super day in the office where I met with around 7 people, ranging from Associates to Managing Directors. More junior employees tended to focus on technical questions, and senior employees focused on fit and behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you walk me through a DCF? What are the primary value drivers of an LBO? Can you describe some different valuation techniques?   Answer Question

    Interview

    The interview process was 100% through my universities on-campus recruiting. The first round was on campus and the second round was in their NYC office. The first round was primarily fit based. The second round took 4 hours or so and involved meeting people from all different levels. The interviews with the more junior people were technical in nature
