Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Conshohocken, PA) in April 2015.

Interview

First Round interview very casual over the phone with a team manager that lasts about 30 minutes. The team manager described the role mostly and asked some behavioral questions. Second Round was another phone interview with a Portfolio Management Associate in the branch. Similar to the first round in describing the role, a run through the resume, some fit questions. Third Round was 4 in person interviews with various employees for about 30 minutes each. Asked about Morgan Stanley and more fit questions, more resume questions. Fourth and last round was an interview with the 2 principals which I did not receive.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Lots of focus on personality. What did you do as extra curriculars, what do you enjoy, what do you dislike.
    Have good reasons for why sales and not trading, why you don't want to work in IB etc. Questions were more about getting you to think on your feet, less IB style 'memorize this equation and recite it'. Lots of questions about current events, would make sense to read up on some bloomberg stuff ahead of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I spoke with an executive director who was a mutual connection and they brought me in their offices for an interview a week later. Spoke with 3 separate executive directors and were asked behavioral questions about me, my past and then questions about my thoughts on the market. Each interview was a one on one experience. No question was overly difficult, they were concerned about your people skills and if you were genuinely interested in private wealth management
