    Client Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I got the onsite interview after a phone call saying I was recommended by someone. The process took 30 mins. 3 managers interviewed me. They let me go through my resume and asked me some client service questions. What's more, one manager told me that this position only needs high school diploma, while I have a master's degree, so he doubted that I would go away after several weeks of work. Over all, the process is good.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview took approximately 3 hours. All 1-1 interviews. Interviewed with my regional manager, regional risk officer, and sales manager. Additional phone call required multi state divisional director. There didn't seem to be very scripted questions. Mostly wanted to see if there was a personality fit. No aptitude test, but a lot of questions about pervious skills and what qualities I would bring to the role.

    I applied early March, after several phone screening, I had 3 hour long interview within 1 week. Compliance did take about 3 weeks to clear before I had a start date.

    Interview Questions

    • strengths/weaknesses...what would my last boss say about me...time I didn't get along with another coworker. Pretty basic questions, but they were really looking for, can this guy work alone, and lead ppl.   Answer Question
