    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morningstar (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied online, got sent a link for to record answers to questions on some website, and then to set up a skype interview with a person. Person was late, seemed very disinterested and just appeared to be randomly choosing random questions off a screen instead of ever making it feel like a conversation. Did not even ask anything about my experience or questions relating to my resume. She kept looking around the room and mouthing things to people which was VERY distracting. Just overall rude and the worst interview experience I have ever had. Really shows a lot about the culture of the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Morningstar.

    Interview

    Very similar experience compared to what other people wrote, it was a long, dragged out process that never felt like it was moving anywhere. My process was the written assignment, an hour phone interview, then two interviews followed by the pitch, The pitch was unprofessional with you sitting at a circle table with people who seem like they couldn't care less - one person called in and never said a word beyond introducing themself and another left early to catch a train. I prepared about 50 hours for my pitch and was cut off early. I'm not sure what type of candidate they are looking for, but I had ~2.5 years of professional experience, one professional certification, am a level two candidate for another, and had a pitch that I was proud of and did not get it. The only feedback that I received was that they wanted someone with more experience. My advice to people applying would be to familiarize yourself with how Morningstar rates fund managers (gold, silver, bronze) and model your pitch around that.

    Senior Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morningstar (Chicago, IL) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a mail for a technical interview without any recruiter screen, no information at all with no way to ask questions.

    Had an online technical round with one of the senior developers all question were good and basic right out of the Interview Handbook Git Repos and a Leetcode easy question, they were not looking for the perfect solution to the coding question but instead for a different (non text book) approach/solution.

    Next had an onsite for 3.5 hours at the Chicago Downtown office they gave me half an hour to ask questions regarding a coding challenge. Then and hour to work on the challenge. The challenge was to design a portfolio tracking application by writing pseudo code, they left it to me to decide what part of the design and coding process i wanted to focus on.
    Next round two people came to cross question about the app i designed. They had a difference of opinion and kept having a war the whole time which made me the victim and the whole hour they kept arguing and i couldn't understand how to answer their questions. Plus they kept asking me why did you not do this in the app and i was like i followed the instructions and did the all the tasks in one hour how do you expect me to innovate in the same amount of time.
    Then had a round with an HR person pretty standard.
    Next round one person gave me a two pages of code and asked me to find errors in that code when i looked at him and asked "seriously?" he responded "i know it's one of the worse ways to test a candidate but this what i have been told to do, I am sorry for such a round but this is what they want me to do". I pointed out syntax errors, general mistakes and lines that didn't make any sense and that was it.

    Received a call that i was not selected after 2 weeks.

    Note to Morningstar: You might be one of the top firms i wanted to work at but this kind of interview experience is the worst i have encountered in a long time.
