    Business Process Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had 2 successful interview rounds in 2 months for New York location for IBM business process management. Too slow. In first interview, they didn't showed up and I waited for 20 minutes and then hung up the call. Later they called me and said they were busy and will schedule later. After two weeks, they came back again and rushed the interview by 2 people. Second interview was on phone too and the person who took it was again in too rush that he just asked one question and went away.

    The third interview - was supposed to be on WebEx. They even confirmed the video is ok on the morning, the actual interview was in the afternoon. At the time of interview, no one showed up. I called them and they said they have an issue connecting video. After 10 mins, interviewer called and told me that they will talk on phone as they are not able to connect to video conference. Anyways, the discussion last for over 30 mins.

    After that, 2 weeks passed, no update. I called my vendor and he said he never got any feedback yet. After a month, vendor called and told me that they have not made any decision yet. Until then, nothing yet. No communication from Morgan Stanley whether it's a pass or fail.

    This was one of my bad experience interviewing with such a company. Not returning back there or applying for any position in future.
