Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview

Phone interview - paper test - Group interview - Manager interview
Group interview was a task. You have a discussion on some topic and each person gets to present for 30 seconds at the end. It was pretty intense.
Manager interview asks a lot of questions that had been asked in the phone interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and then on-site. The analysts and associates focus more on technical questions, many of which come from interview books. The managers basically went through my resume and asked more about my personal research project and some other soft questions.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of brain teasers I remember. Also probability, statistics, and programming questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First round and then superday that consisted of 6 interviews....the first round was fairly easy, second round was much more technical but I think they also really cared about fit. Of the six interview it was probably half managing directors and half executive directors. My first round interviews consisted of interviewing with analysts and associates

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied On-campus and online. Scheduled a first round interview through on campus recruiting. Mostly fit questions (Why IBD? Why MS?) , a few technicals (depreciation expense on all 3 accounting statements, what is WACC?) . Never heard back from HR rep or interviewer, so figured I didn't move to the next round as many peers had scheduled super days in New York.
