Please describe the interview / hiring process.

I reached out to a fellow alumni who is a VP at Morgan Stanley, who put me in contact with the Branch Manager for his location. Started by an informal informational phone call with the B.M., which led to a later phone interview and in-person interview. The people that I spoke to were all very nice and went out of their way to help me. They stressed that it's a very entrepreneurial position, and that many people are unable to make it as a financial advisor.
