    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    It was very technical but fairly easy once you are prepared. It started off with a Panel discussion where you get to clear any doubts about the role being applied for. Next is a group challenge which evaluates teamwork. Lastly is three (one on one) interviews back to back which could last anything between 45 mins to One hour.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very intense, super day was 3 back to back half hour interviews and 1 group case assignment. The people were friendly but they are extremely selective. The entire process was very interesting and you get to meet a lot of people because prior to the interviews they have a networking reception where you get to meet other Morgan Stanley employees and find out about their jobs.

    Nothing special in the beginning. He asked me about my interest in trading briefly - what product and why trading at a bank. Then he gave me a probability question and a brainteaser. Surprisingly there was no question about markets.

    Interview

    Applied for the Fixed Income S&T Summer Analyst internship. First round interview was behavioral. Superday was meeting with 5 individuals for 20-30 minutes each. Some asked strictly behavioral questions, some asked mostly markets based questions. Because I was interviewing with the fixed income group, one interviewer asked me all math questions and brain teasers (I come from a liberal arts background so he wanted to "test my quant skills"). As a female, I noticed that there was hardly a female interviewer on the floor (out of at least 20).
