    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Easier interview process than I expected, mostly personality, etc questions. A few slightly weird questions asking about what I thought they did and thought I would be doing as an intern but overall a straightforward process that went well.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Recruiter from MS had called me for the opening and schedule telephonic discussion. It was onsite interview someone from HK had called me for discussion. Answered all the questions correctly and most of the questions were not standard technical based , it was very basic looks like interviewer dont have much potential in that skill. After the interview i got immediate rejection mail.so what i understood is some lazy people they don't want the people who has much potential technical knowledge because they have to retain their seat in MS and never allow new talents or techie.Its totally waste of my time. Its all depends upon the interviewer choice to select or reject irrespective of your knowledge.if right interviewer then hopefully things will be move correct direction.
