    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Did the process through my universities career center. First part was a phone interview followed up by a Super Day at the NYC offices. Group interview followed by individual one on one interviews. for the group interview we were given Legos and had to design a new MS logo in 30 mins. After a few mins they cut the time in half (to see how you work under pressure) and after another few mins they tell you you can't use a certain color in the design. At the end we had to present the new design as a team, explain why we chose it, and answer any questions they had about it.

    Applied via on campus interview. They got back to us within a week after their expiration date. On campus they have a small room with two chairs a desk and the interviewer had paper for writing interview questions. The interievew was scheduled for 30 minutes. They asked to tell me about yourself and then proceeded to ask Data Structure questions. The questions were rather general asking about topics that were simply gone over in a data structures course.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    A phone interview and a super day.The people were nice and the entire process was very enjoyable. I applied for the sophomore program at Institutional Equity. The super day involved three rounds of interviews. A variety of questions were covered, including quick calculations of stock prices, technical questions like what is EV/EBITDA, and some brainteasers. The interviews in general were more focused on fit questions though. Communication was managed very well throughout the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Overall fine experience. Interviewers and recruiters were nice and communicative. First interview was entirely behavioral, probably because of my liberal arts background. Was contacted after I submitted an online application (not through college) about a phone interview, and set it up within the following day. The interview was 2 on 1 and over the phone. Afterwards, it took about a week or two to get the rejection email.

    Interview

    Friendly. He generally talks about the interview process, and how the processes will go. Then he started asking questions about my resume. Then he asked questions about Greeks. At last, he began to ask about current market, and this topic goes like half an hour. I didn't think questions about markets would count that much thus didn't prepare well, and got rejected in the end.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Networking events the entire first month of school. It is definitely important to meet as many people as you can and have one person going to bat for you. I got the first round interview on campus. Overall thought the interview went well. About 50/50 technical and fit, but did not make it to the superday.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. I was contacted for a 1st round interview after submitting an application through Morgan Stanley's online recruiting portal, which was conducted by two analysts within the division I had applied to. I did not immediately hear back following my initial interview, but after a little over a week I received a phone call to attend a Superday in the following days. My Superday consisted of three half-hour, back-to-back interviews. I heard back with a decision within three days following my interview.
