    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2018.

    Interview

    There were basically three parts to the interview process. A phone interview, a pre-Interview for the superday , and then the next day was the super day, where we had four rotational rounds of interview with different people. Each person in the first 3 rounds focused on different types of questions, behavioral, situational and the common question of about the company. In the last round of the super day, we (all the interviewees) had to work as a team to basically sell an investment idea to the interviewers.

    Mostly behavioral and fit question
    There were 3 people involved in an interview
    2people from one team and 1 from the other. The hiring manager told me that they are looking to fill the position quickly so they will be reaching out within a week. However, after a week there was no comment what so ever so I guess I am not chosen.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The entire interview process took 1 week. MS held a Pre-interview Q&A panel on Monday where you got to meet the people who you will be interviewing with. The actual interview was on Wednesday and all of the questions asked required specific examples from past experiences. Superday was on Thursday and consisted of 2 one on one interviews and one group presentation. All questions were behavioral/fit. The group presentation consists of working in a team to create something and presenting the results. General format of the presentation: Two competing teams working on a single assignment, halfway through, you are given a massive restriction/change in the assignment to see how you think on your feet.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Round 1: Brief phone interview. They only asked basic personality questions just to test if you are able to hold a conversation.
    Round 2: Super Day at NYC office - Group exercise, 2 one-on-one interviews.
    The group exercise is a project that starts as a competition between several small groups but then becomes a large group that must mesh their ideas together. At the end of the project candidates are expected to present their ideas and all candidates are expected to contribute their input.
    The two individual interviews are with two different recruiters that both ask similar questions. Questions are based on the knowledge you have about the company, the function of Operations, Excel as well as questions based on your resume, experience and strengths and weaknesses.
