    FAA Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I honestly don’t know how you can lie and waste the time of people applying like you have with me.

    I spoke with a recruiter on the phone and was passed on to a local complex manager. There was a two month lag between when the complex manager and I could actually meet because she was new.

    After finally meeting, she talked me out of the FAA position because “no one can accomplish it” and into the WAA position which sounded more like portfolio management and something I do have a background in. She tells me that the role doesn’t have a training class for two more months.

    So I wait the two months and she brings me in again ( around the fourth time I called off work for this) to tell me that the position is no longer available but has a different position in mind with another office because they liked me so much.

    So I meet AGAIN for the other position and everything seems to go fine. They tell me they will call me in two weeks regardless, after showing me their internal systems.

    That is the last time I have heard from anyone at Morgan Stanley. I have called and emailed with no response from anyone.

    I feel absolutely disrespected and can’t believe a company of this caliber would treat people this way

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    This is essentially some of the interview process for undergraduate students. First, you have to make an account with Morgan Stanley. Then you submit some personal info and they’ll send you a HireVue link which you will follow up on. Sometimes, they’ll send “mind challenges” which you complete. Then they’ll let you know if you’ve passed on to the next round.

    I submitted my application during the summer, then I got a HireVue to complete the next day. I was contacted to do a phone interview in early September, then I found out in early October that I was selected for a Super Day. The Super Day was at their NYC office with around 10-15 candidates, and it consisted of a team activity and 3 back to back interviews.

    First interview went well with the Branch Manager. He then told that there will be two other interviews with senior team members. They were not able to maintain their professionalism.

    Positive - just a slow moving process. Things moved quickly once it got past onsite stage. Overall positive experience with the firm. Would recommend more open and continuous feedback process in the future.
