    Interview

    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).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in June 2016.

    Interview

    Mainly fit questions, some technical. Interviewer was clearly very concerned with gauging interest in the Morgan Stanley experience, as opposed to other Bulge brackets, middle markets, boutiques, or other classes of firms within the financial services industry.

    Interview

    I applied through my career services website; for the MS Wealth Management; they gave me two first round interviews for different rolls; both were phone interviews; they didn't ask any complicated questions; it was my first interview in awhile and I was nervous that's all; My advice to everyone else know about the markets, have a few stories in the back of your mine and REMEMBER that you won't know everything; the interviewer wants to see if they would like to have you on their team, so try to be honest with them; do not be boring with them
