I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Bangalore) in Apr 2020

Interview

Its very long process. I have given 6 tech round they also asked me about package and notice period details in the last round. It seems like i have got the offer. But i haven't got any reply from them. I I am expecting feedback but no one replying to my call and mails. After spending this much time they should have given at least some feedback. This is very bad. HR will never attend your call. Only when they need you, will call you. No reply to mails. Please give feedback if some one has cleared all the round and you are enquiry about package and notice period.

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Bangalore) in Apr 2019

Interview

I was called by an HR from Naukri. I went through 2 rounds of face to face discussion. Both rounds involved basic core java questions and problem solving skills. 2nd interviewer was very rude and unexperienced to take the interview.

Interview Questions
  • In 1st round he asked me 1) what is serialization and how we achieve it 2) There is an array (unsorted) of elements ranging from 0-100 and there was one missing element in the array, had to find the missing element and the index of missing element. Then another part of this question was to find the duplicate element in the array if no element is missing and elements ranging from 0-100 3) There is a huge file of about 1 gb and contains some important data that needs to be extracted and a normal program is taking ~30 minutes to parse the file, what stelps can be taken to reduce the time. 4) write a method which takes procedure name as parameter and arguments of the stored procedures in the parameter and method executes the procedure. 2nd interviewer asked me questions like one major difference between abstract class and interface after java 9, then he asked me try with resources, how is it different from finally block, ACID property of database and a question on sql. He was very rude, whatever I was answering which I read from geeksforgeeks, he was not convinced and unnecessarily digging deep into internals. At the end he asked me if I have any questions then I told him that why I was not asked any question on DS and Algo and the stupid person says where do we use DS and Algo! I think he was expecting a candidate not logically fit but who can rote the concepts and come for interview.
