    Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Montreal, QC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had visited their office in Montreal, gave my CV to the HR and a few weeks later they contact me via email to schedule an interview in their office with an engineer. Very friendly. As a French-speaker, I ask them if they prefer anglophone, they told me No. But when I gave my CVs both in French and in English, they took the English one and said "It's better for us".

    It's understandable, it's an American company and the superior are all anglophone. But I did not expect they respond me as they don't care much about language but finally they do...

    There is 2-3 interviews: the first one is about technical skills, the second and the last are more about your personal skills.

    Interview Questions
    • As a student in electrical engineering, I didn't expect they ask me very detail questions about programming, but they did. They want to know how you wil resolve problem. Will focus on the language you know and ask you to resolve specific problem in front of the interviewer.   Answer Question
