Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in September 2018.

Thorough online tests before being invited for a telephone interview. Upon passing this I was then invited to the assessment centre. After this it was around 6 weeks before I heard if I was successful or not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Morgan Stanley had the best interview process I've experienced. The period of time between submitting my application and getting my offer was no longer than 6 weeks. Great feedback was given at every stage, with guidelines on when I'd hear back always adhered to. The assessment centre was really enjoyable, due in part to the strength based interviews but also due to the hands on nature of the group activity.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    1. Online Application

    Standard online application form with motivation questions about why you are interested in finance and ops.

    2. Online Tests

    Numerical Test, Comprehension Test and speed test thing where you have to read numbers. I'd advise you practice these beforehand.

    3. Phone Interview

    Competency based questions, very standard. Also ask about your interest in Morgan Stanley and why you have applied to this role. About 30 mins, quite relaxed

    4. Assessment Centre Day

    2 Interviews throughout the day, both competency based again, 15/20 mins each with 2 interviewers from ops. All the interviewers were nice. Group task follows the interviews, standard again with 4 people in the room observing. Mainly focussed on how well you incorporate the core MS values and how well you interact with each other. Half way through the task they always change the scenario slightly so be prepared to adapt.

    Also have the opportunity to chat with current interns and grads which is nice. Everyone was very friendly, quite relaxed setting.
