    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It's a competitive position so expect the environment to be cut-throat. You'll be one of hundreds or thousands wanting that position. The questions you get can vary from technical to situational.

    Interview Questions

    • Your department manager just left for a meeting that he said could last for three hours. A partnered department's analyst comes in just after your manager engaged in his meeting. The analyst hands you a document that your manager needs to check, and it needs to be submitted within the hour. You have a look at the document and can see that you are quite familiar with the material that needs to be checked, but you know it's best if your manager handles this, even though he is in a meeting. What do you do?   Answer Question
