There was a pre-night where everyone sat at a large conference table and asked questions. Everything was behavioral. The employees were very friendly and willing to answer any questions. The pre-night was a laid back setting. The in person interview was 30-minutes and one on one. The interviewer was helpful in answering any questions.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Met with senior, hiring manager and VP in Baltimore. Interview questions mainly focused on resume. Hiring manager was very nice and made a detailed self introduction at the beginning of the interview which helped me to become less nervous during the interview and it went out well. The hiring manager required me to go back for another round of interviews right after our interview. The senior was a lady who just came back to the financial industry after being a full time housewife for 20 years. She kept talking about her personal working and life experience and asked easy questions about my internship and school academic work. The VP interview was a tough one and you can see VP was not interested in the interview from the beginning. The VP dug deeply into resume stated work.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in February 2016.

    Interview

    This was done through a staffing agency. Morning interviews with 3 people (managers), roughly 20 mins long. Standard questions with a few postion specific thrown in. Mostly a general fit type interview, being able to elaborate answers without "bragging" will be a big plus. Morgan Stanley likes to hear buzzwords like "streamline" "teamwork" "synergy" try to throw them into your answer, but not in a forced way.

    • A customer or client in your current/previous job had a problem, what did you do fix it? Who did you ask for help?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    As a temp/consultant I didn't have much room to negotiate. Start date is flexible within 2 weeks, but pay is pretty set in stone

    Interview

    I applied through college career site. First phone interview basically screening. If you pass phone interview you go to first round and second round later. Doesn't seem very hard to do but because it is Morgan Stanley, their HR team looking for the best people. I wasn't very prepared, so articulate every single detail when you have a chance to interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through my schools career website and was contacted by a recruiter within a few days. I had the phone interview with a manager for the basic questions. (What is Operations? Why Operations? Tell me about yourself.). Then I got to the super day for the final rounds of interviews (about a week and a half later). It was supposed to take 3 hours but we got out early (9am-11am) was supposed to go to 12pm. There were about 10 of us and we met with a few employees in a conference room and got a itinerary of the day. You will meet with 2 people back to back (30 minutes each) and then you will have the group project with 4 other people. The project was dealing with a power issue in their Brooklyn office and you had to work as a team to figure out the best way to get through and possibly fix the situation. Make sure you work as a team and encourage others to share their ideas. You will then present it to the group of managers and explain the reasoning to your conclusion.

    I met some great candidates and unfortunately I did not receive an offer. It was the best experience I had with an interview and I wish I got the position because it is a dream of mine to work for MS. If you get the opportunity for the super day, make sure you are on point, this is a great opportunity to work for an amazing company.

    (They say it will take 2 weeks to hear back, but some of my classmates got a call that day and the day after the interview), I was contacted later the week via email with the decline.
