    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    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.

    Average 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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university as well as online through Morgan Stanley's website. I was soon after invited to an on campus information session as well as an on campus first round interview. The first round was a simple, what do you know about us / what can you bring to us setup. The recruiter emailed me the next morning letting me know that I was invited to a final round interview the day after that. The final round included a group activity as well as two interviews with different managers. The questions were very similar to the first round.
