    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a conference with regards to the technology analyst position. I was told that I was applying for a developer position. Landed a 'technical interview'. To me, this means data structures and algorithms. The interviewer called 45 minutes late and the interview was completely scenario based. The questions also did not seem development based (I later found out that I was being interviewed for a tester position to which I had no knowledge I had applied for or was being interviewed for). No communication was given on that front.

    Interview

    It's a 30 min first round interview. Just some basic concepts questions then I was asked three coding questions. First, to inverse a linked list. Then, it's a filling color question. In the end, the interviewer ask me to give a solution to improve the performance of search books in a large database.

    Interview Questions

    • Each question is not difficult. But it is a challenge to solve three of them in 20 min. And my interview is more difficult than another student who is selected to the second round. So I think the difficulty is quite depends on the interviewer and your luck.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley (Montreal, QC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted the resume in career fair and take the onsite first-round-interview a week later. That is pretty simple, just some concept questions and basic programming questions are asked.

    A week later, I went to the onsite final-round-interview.
    Firstly we have lunch there and can ask new employees questions to know more about the company.
    Then we are divided into group of 4 to build the bridge with tapes and newspapers. It is not hard to build such a bridge, but you need to show your teamwork abilities I think.
    Then there are 4 technical interviews. Concept questions, programming questions, behaviour questions and brain teasers are asked. The questions are not hard.
