    Excellent process, started all interview calls on the day the deadline was due. HR was lovely and supportive.
    2 rounds of interviews, with a mix of behaviourial and technical questions. Quite a few valuation questions, what's going on in the marketplace etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty formal. Went through 4 rounds of interview. Due to restructuring, the process took much longer than anticipated. Questions were relatively straightforward. The most important thing is to get along with the hiring manager. If he/she has a good impression, you may at least get to the final round.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview Details

    Set up initially in conference room, brought through the building to 3 different interviews. All generally were fit questions, concluded with a group project working on a case study. Overall pretty simple interview, just read up on the company and have your story down beforehand. I did not receive an offer, but I am not sure if that was because I did not have any background experience in the finance industry beforehand and the competition did or what.

    • I was asked about when I was put in an uncomfortable position in the work place, just be sure to consider these beforehand.   Answer Question

    The interview was really clean. They allowed you time to answer the questions and they were friendly.The process is long and tedious, I suggest one goes to Harvard or Yale in order to really get a good chance to work at this bank.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was they wanted me to build an LBO in 10 seconds, not sure if that is possible.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty technical. That was unexpected. The interviewer mostly asked about one project and dug every detail out of it. He did not ask abt any behavioral question. Be prepared with your coursework. It can be very tough.

    Interview Details

    Standard - online application consisted on CV and manually entering in data. Then online psychometric tests, there was one numerical but I think this depends on your division. Then interview in person at MS office with two members of the team. They ask you standard competency questions and also can ask some technical depending on the division.
