I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in November 2013.

The first round was an average online application form that also required cv and cover letter submission.

This stage was followed by an SHS online test. Numerical, logical and speed test.

The third stage was a telephone interview, which focused on motivation and skills.

6 weeks later we got the results.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

Interviewed at Morgan Stanley

Interview Details Applied to a recruiter and got a phone interview. Interview was on Deadlock, Asked about how to avoid deadlock and how to detect them. The interviewer was very friendly and the interview was fluent. Not too technical questions but I think Morgan Stanley asks a lot on multithreading and since i am not too much into it , I don't expect it to move forward.
