Anyone who got accepted in the accelerated process know when/how offer letters are sent out? Doesn't seem to be through the MS portal but also haven't seen an email.

Jun 6, 2018

my recruiter told me I'd receive it in June, haven't gotten anything yet.

Application is very quick. I applied yesterday, there is no immediate "test" or hirevu attached

Jun 6, 2018

Any rising sophomores applying? I know they have a specific sophomore 2019 app but that may just be for diversity (I applied anyway). Not sure if it would be a good idea to apply to this when I already applied to all the sophomore 2019 apps including S&T, IBD, cap markets?

What are the rising sophomores putting on their resumes? Assuming you haven't touched finance/economics related classes yet

Jun 6, 2018

Just got a hirevue for 2019 SA IBD in New York. Any one know the type of questions they ask?

Jun 6, 2018

Got one for the 2019 SA for Capital Markets as well.

Jun 6, 2018

When did you apply?

Jun 9, 2018

Did you do the hirevue? What were the questions? Were they the same for IBD and GCM?

Hey, could you let me know which questions you got for the Hirevue! It would be much appreciated!!

Jul 27, 2018

Can you give some insight into the GCM questions?

Jun 6, 2018

Is there a time limit to complete the Hirevue by?

Jun 6, 2018

July 28th which is the deadline for Early Action

Jun 6, 2018

Just got one as well and wondering the same thing.

is this for real? at a target for ms and I don't think anyone at our school has gotten offers yet.

Jun 6, 2018

I'm only seeing an application for sophomores graduating december 2020-spring 2021

Edit: I was looking directly at the application but somehow missed it

Jun 6, 2018

has anyone done the Hirevue yet?

Jun 7, 2018

are early application (7.25 ddl) roiling or they won't start reviewing until the ddl?

Jun 7, 2018

Can you apply to more than one program? I'm thinking of applying to the sophomore programs for equity research and investment banking but just want to make sure you can apply to both

Jun 7, 2018

For the sophmore 2019 I did in fact I'm pretty sure I applied to all of them like IB, ER, S&T, GCM

Jun 8, 2018

You can apply up to three programs.

Jun 12, 2018

I applied to three programs (the max). Diversify = Better Chances for Success. Don't put all your eggs in one basket and that includes BBs too.

Jun 12, 2018

Ok good. Also I'm applying for the sophomore programs so BBs are really all I could find

Jul 8, 2018

Does anyone know when apps close? asking because I'm in the middle of applying to a target business school and won't find out for a week or so

Jun 12, 2018

Due date for the hirevues are around the end of July, so I'm guessing by then as well

Jun 9, 2018

Anyone do Hirevue? What were the questions? Does everyone get the Hirevue? Are hirevue questions the same across divisions?

Jun 9, 2018

Just got the hirevue. I guess no one is gonna do it until someone post what the questions are?

Hm... I'll do mine in a few days and post the questions afterwards (if someone doesn't beat me to it first).

Bump for MS Hirevue

    • 1
Jun 11, 2018

A friend did the hirevue and he said there were 2 questions. A question regarding a current transaction in the market and a behavioral regarding ethics.

    • 4
Jun 12, 2018

Were they single or multiple attempt?

Jun 12, 2018

Single I'm sure

Jul 16, 2018

Which division did he do the HireVue for?

Jul 16, 2018

This is for IBD

Jun 12, 2018

I got an email from MS NY recruiting saying that I have been "referred to Morgan Stanley". Anyone know anything about the MS's referral system? (i.e auto first round or?).

PS: I'm from a west coast school (think Stanford, UCB, etc.), so non-core.

    • 1
Jun 12, 2018

I also got this in late April- does anyone else know what exactly this means?

Jun 12, 2018

lol how is Stanford/Berkeley non-core? they're the two best on the west coast

Jun 13, 2018

Anyone do capital markets hirevue? Are the questions the same as ib?

Jun 14, 2018

Interested in this as well

Jun 14, 2018

do you know the Qs for ib?

Jun 13, 2018

Does anyone know if you go directly to a super day after the hirevue like GS does?

Jun 14, 2018

interested as well

Jun 14, 2018

what were the questions for the HireVue?

Jun 14, 2018

No one's gonna answer.

    • 1
Jun 14, 2018

I did the hirevue - my two questions were something like this:
1. What about Morgan Stanley makes you want to work at our firm?
2. What do you expect to gain from the summer analyst role?

    • 8
Jun 14, 2018

Was this for IB??

Jun 14, 2018

How much time did you have to talk for and how much prep time did you get?

Jun 15, 2018

^^

Jun 14, 2018

How soon after submitting the application have you guys been receiving the HireVue? I go to a target school and submitted on Monday, but I haven't received anything yet so I'm getting a bit worried...

    • 2
Jun 18, 2018

3-4 days after submission for me

Jun 14, 2018

Does it matter how soon after receiving the HireVue you respond to the video? Does responding later put your application at a disadvantage?

Jun 19, 2018

I think so, because offers are given out on a rolling basis, so the later you do it, the lower the amount of spaces available. Thats what I think though, correct me if im wrong

Jun 15, 2018

MS HireVue:

I just recently recorded the HireVues for MS and from what I've read in here and what I just saw, there are no set questions. I received one questions asking "Talk about a time when you thought something wasn't right and how you approached the problem and found a solution," and one asking "Talk about a recent transaction that has interested you."

Aside from that, you have two attempts at each question, and more than 2 minutes in between your first and second attempt to think about your answer.

Jun 18, 2018

thanks!! how long did u have to talk/respond?

Jun 18, 2018

1.5 minutes for each

Jun 18, 2018

Yeah I can confirm I took mine yesterday

Jun 19, 2018

Yhup. I did my hirevue today and these were the questions I got asked too.
Prepare guys! Goodluck!

Jun 18, 2018

does anyone know if the hirevue questions are the same across divisions?

Jun 18, 2018

Talked to an MS Vice Chair from my town yea bish i got that fat CV push - they're gonna start phone screens at the end of this month, superdays in august and july

Jun 18, 2018

Is this for core or non-core candidates?

Jun 18, 2018

Where do you go to apply? Morgan Stanely's website? Is there a way to sign up for HIRE VUE?

Has anyone done the Global Capital Markets Hirevue yet? Are the questions the same as IBD?

Jun 19, 2018

bump

Jun 21, 2018

Questions aren't the same for GCM. Structure is. 1.5 mins per question, you get 1 redo.

  1. Why do you want to pursue a career in capital markets?
  2. How do you stay up to date on financial news?

Jun 24, 2018

Did GCM and got different questions

Oct 27, 2018

Hi, could you please PM me the whole list of questions, thanks!

Jun 19, 2018

Is there any reason not to apply for the Early Action as opposed to waiting for the July period?

Jun 20, 2018

Has anyone gotten a hirevue for the sophomore internship?

Jun 20, 2018

Yes

Jun 20, 2018

I just submitted. How long did it take for you?

Jun 21, 2018

Anyone else get an invite to a Super Day yet? I'm a girl and don't own the slightest bit of Wall Street attire. If it were my decision I'd wear some ripped jeans and birks lol....lmk if anyone has any tips.

Jun 21, 2018

Did you have a phone screen or just HireVue --> Super Day?
Also, ripped jeans + birks is the plan, lmk how it goes

Jun 21, 2018

lol they'd probably tell me to leave if i showed up like that. and i did the hirevue a couple days ago and then got the inv, was not expecting it at all

Jun 21, 2018

Is this for IB?

Jun 21, 2018

hell no

Jul 17, 2018

Wear either a skirtsuit or pantsuit. For shoe neutral color heels/flats

Jun 21, 2018

Anyone have any idea on Hirevue questions for Institutional Equity?

Jun 27, 2018

bump!

Jul 9, 2018

well?

Oct 25, 2018

great

Jul 25, 2018

Any luck on the questions?

Jun 22, 2018

Anyone got a phone interview after completing the hirevue yet? I'm from a nontarget.

Jun 22, 2018

Does this mean you got one? If so, do you get the phone interview scheduled or is it spontaneous?

"It is not our circumstance that controls us, but our thoughts that control our circumstance." -James Allen

Jun 23, 2018

No I didn't get a phone screen yet. I was just wondering!

Jun 22, 2018

Curious as well. Was it for IB or Capital Markets?

Jun 22, 2018

How "potential" of a candidate are you if you receive the hirvue. Just gauging what to expect because i'm from a non target

Jun 22, 2018

I think the majority of people seem to be getting them, but it does look like they do go and actually comb through the apps, so probably some basic attrition.

Jun 22, 2018

Hirevues seem to be given to everyone. However, we should update each other when MS starts to give out first round phone screens after submitting Hirevues for IB!

Jun 22, 2018

Had a call with an Analyst who literally interviewed on over the networking call after I told him I've applied.

Jun 26, 2018

What kind of stuff did he ask? Also for what office? I've heard the same happen for CS

Jun 26, 2018

Walk me through a dcf, how do the financial statements connect, basic LBO questions - I did have prior IB and PE internship experience tho

Jun 22, 2018

for some schools they go straight from Hirevues-> superdays. happened at my school for JPM, GS. seems pretty much anyone got a hirevue so not too much emphasis on it

    • 1
Jun 23, 2018

how long after applying did you guys receive the hirevue?

Jun 24, 2018

2 and a half days after

Jun 26, 2018

Still haven't heard back after I submitted my hirevue. is this a ding?

Jun 26, 2018

I haven't heard after a week either, but had a referral. Assuming they are sending them out in waves.

Jun 26, 2018

Does anyone know if multiple referrals count the same as one referral or no?

Jun 26, 2018

Could you explain what you mean?

Jun 28, 2018

I got the 2 referral emails from MS recruiting at different times (I would say within a span of 2 weeks) through networking.

Jun 27, 2018

Have other people heard after HireVue for IB or S&T?

Jun 27, 2018

I have not heard back from them either. I sent my application Thursday last week, and have not gotten a HireVue yet. Are the hirevues going out in waves as mentioned above or what is the deal? I applied to Fixed Income and Research

Jun 28, 2018

One of the questions for Fixed Income:
1. Why do you want to pursue a career in Fixed Income Sales and Trading?

and I believe the other one was "what is something that you noticed was wrong and how did you approach the situation?" or something like that.

I did three Hirevues back to back, so I am a little shaky on the second question for Fixed Income.

    • 2
Jun 28, 2018

Thank you! It has officially been 5 business days since I applied so I am worried that I didnt go through the first screening. Someone mentioned HireVues are coming out in waves so hopefully I will get a HireVue with the next wave.

Aug 2, 2018

If you could share with me the fixed income questions I can share BAML or JP with you!

Jun 27, 2018

Yeah, not sure what's going on. I applied to IB and Risk last week and have great referrals.

Jun 28, 2018

I applied to IB and got the hirevue a few days after. Did the hirevue a week ago. Recently applied for Capital Markets and received hirevues 2 days later as well. Wondering what the questions are for Capital Markets?

Jun 28, 2018
  1. Why do you want to pursue a career in GCM?
  2. How do you keep up with financial news?

Did anyone find out if Hirevues are being sent in waves?

Jul 1, 2018

Has anybody done the hirevue for emerging markets or Global sales yet? I got the email about the hirevue for emerging makets but am still waiting for the ones for global sales and fixed income. I applied to those 2 today though so I should get them in the next couple of days hopefully.

Aug 2, 2018

If you could share with me the fixed income questions I can share BAML or JP with you!

Aug 2, 2018

I did 3 hirevues, FI, Emerging Markets, and institutional sales and got the same questions for all of them. They were just "why do you want a career in xxxxx field" and some variation of when you solved a problem in a group. the 2 variations I got were "A time you had to convince a group to do something" and "a time where you solved a problem". Pretty simple questions in my opinion/

Jul 2, 2018

Has anyone done the hirevue for Public Finance or know anything about how PB recruits?

Jul 4, 2018

did the Hirevue for ny a few weeks ago. Gonna do the one for sf this weekend.

Jul 4, 2018

what do you mean sf?

Jul 5, 2018

How were the questions for the PB hirevue?

Aug 2, 2018

If you could share with me the fixed income questions I can share BAML or JP with you!

Jul 2, 2018

Submitted my HireVue today, has anyone heard anything since their HireVue?

Jul 2, 2018

how long did you wait for the HireVue to be sent to you?

Jul 2, 2018

I got it 4-5 days after submitting the application.

Jul 5, 2018

Just submitted my HireVue today, have you heard anything back yet or have a timeline on when we will get a superday invite? Hope yours went well and you get a spot!

Jul 5, 2018

Thanks man, hope yours went well too. I applied to the sophomore program as a non diversity student so definitely limited chances haha. Have not heard anything back yet, doesn't seem like anyone else has either. No idea what the timeline/recruiting process moving forward will be like.

hirevue to superday

Jul 5, 2018

Seems unlikely considering most people got the HireVue. What are your sources?

Jul 7, 2018

Any Canadians hear back from Morgan Stanley Toronto concerning the summer reception?

Jul 7, 2018

Got an acceptance email yesterday afternoon highlighting the details of the event.

Jul 8, 2018

Is there a time limit to complete the Hirevue by? I mean between the invite to Hirevue and the deadline of Hirevue? Thanks

Jul 8, 2018

It should say on the Hirevue email. I am applying for the sophomore program and it was Sept. 9. It might be different for you.

Jul 8, 2018

I've heard rumors about superdays' being held either this upcoming week or the week after. Any insights?

Jul 8, 2018

did those people have a phone screen in between hirevues and superdays? and do those people have exploding offers?
