Morgan Stanley 2020 SA HireVue Questions

Asked for HireVue immediately after submitting application. Given 48 hours to do it. 2 questions, each with 1 retry attempt. Each question gave 30 second prep time, then 90 seconds to answer the question. Same questions as last year.

What's a recent transaction that you're interested in?
What's a time you saw something wrong in a team/project/activity you were doing? How did you react? What did you do?

What's a recent transaction that you're interested in?

Any suggested resources to cultivate a response to this?

Read the WSJ, keep up to date with business news. Find a deal that not everyone knows about. Know the price, how the transaction is being financed, why the company decided to buy the other, expected synergies, etc.

Were they the same as IBD?

May 16, 2019

I did the Hirevue last Friday for IB and got an e-mail today to do an assessment online, which includes; situation judgement question, numerical questions , and logical reasoning. Anyone else get this? Have not heard of anyone receiving this.

May 16, 2019

I also got this today. Haven't done it yet though.

May 16, 2019

Have you been able to open it? I have been having problems with macOS on Chrome, Safari, and FF. I tried on Windows and that didn't seem to help.

I didn't see anyone get this assessment test in last years post. It was hirevue->phone interview->super day.

May 17, 2019

I got a similar test from Credit Suisse a few days ago. It's essentially a tightly time limited logic and reasoning test. The numerical is a bunch of charts and graphs and they ask you questions about the data on them, you have to say, true, false, or cannot tell. The logical reasoning is similar but with passages instead of numbers.

Just got MS HireVue today as well.

I checked the application center today, and found it said thank you for submitting the online assessment. It made me so confused because I never did an online assessment. Anyone knows what's going on??? I guess there is a problem in the system side that we have received the online assessments sent to the European peers?

May 17, 2019

same, no idea

May 17, 2019

then it's a system error I believe

May 17, 2019

I thought the assessment were for only UK students?

May 20, 2019

yeah I think so, and none of us could do it as it said online assessments were already completed

I completed mine on Saturday afternoon and submitted. I'll see what happens.

I'm a US student, took the online assessment within ~48 hours; you only had two days to do the assessments, so if you waited that might be why you're not able to anymore.

I got to round 27 on the switchChallenge and don't think of myself as strong in quant at all. I have friends that could probably score 40+ with ease.

Why would you even take the test? You said you already signed with a BB. If you were to receive a superday interview, that would effectively be one less interview for someone else - most likely someone without an offer.

Is there an assessment for SA 2020 positions? Has anyone heard back after the hirevues?

Jul 1, 2019

For their Equity Research positions, the questions were
"why are you interested in Equity Research"
"what is a company that you really admire? Why"

Jul 1, 2019

Prime brokerage is quite similar -
1) Why are you interested in prime brokerage
2) Describe which skills you have developed through your professional, educational, or personal experiences that will make you successful in a client service role

I received an email from MS on Friday that the deadline has passed and that they are going to start reviewing the Hirevue and the application on a rolling basis. Also, the majority of the interviews will take place from August - October. I applied to WM NY.

Jul 22, 2019

Could anyone please elaborate what questions are asked in Morgan Stanley IBD (Houston) hirevue interview?

Sep 9, 2019

for Sales and Trading I've got the following (not exact but you get it):

  • importance of a diverse environment
  • how unconventional fiscal and monetary policy changes the way people evaluate investment decisions?
  • if you have 100b how will you invest?
  • Think of something you know that is complicated and explain to me

After the question is revealed to you, you have 30s to prep and 90s to record. After that you get to review your video and it will pause and you decide whether you want to re-record. That's a good time to find out some stuff if you have no clue what the question is about.

hope that helps.
