I dont know if job status updating means anything - i've applied to other roles at ms (still going through the process) and sometimes they keep the status updated and other times they dont.

I heard the questions are the same as the equities one. These are the questions

What's the best team you worked on, how did you contribute to your business, most difficult professional experience

Hopefully this week something comes. I think I acquitted myself decently in the Hirevue. Some of the practice takes felt stronger than the finished product, but I did sound like I knew my financial stuff, so hope it leads to something this week.

Anyone receive an email requesting to schedule their IED superday, following the initial invitation received last Thursday 4/14? I haven't heard anything yet.

Apr 22, 2021 - 6:33pm

I received mine and I thought it was a super day but it says "1st round interview" in the email. For interview tips, just going to look up IED interview questions. I wonder if they will ask us the normal questions since the program is targeted around people without financial backgrounds.

I completed my super day yesterday for IED. it was 3 interviews back to back. Sent thank you notes and 2/3 responded to them. Don't know if that's a good sign or if there is another round. Any insight?

Yeah the IED Experienced Professionals Program - so technically it can be anything in that, but they all asked what I wanted to do and I said sales. Thought it went as well as it could have. Good luck, hopefully we hear this week

Has anyone been stuck in In Review for a while on the portal? I have some other things lined up outside of this, but nevertheless seeing I haven't been hit with the "no longer being considered" gut punch, I figure there's still a chance?

From what I heard, MS doesn't always update the recruitment portal in a timely manner. If you had a superday last week you're definitely in the running. Best of luck

I received the email stating that I advanced to the next round yesterday late afternoon.

I too was surprised that there will be another round next week.

May 14, 2021 - 4:26pm

It has to be the final round. But I haven't heard anything official. I think we'll hear back on Friday 5/21. Any later would be too late for a June start, especially with the Memorial Day holiday coming up.

This is a very interesting situation. Looks like some people had a 3rd round yesterday, for which they were notified in the morning and asked to complete it later in the day.

Many were not invited to another round of interviews. I'm thinking that those not invited to a 3rd round are either 1) automatically denied or 2) A decision has been made on the basis of the first 2 rounds (sufficient evaluative basis)

Looks like the 3rd interview will probably be used as a tiebreaker or placement interview, or a truly "final" round in which everyone not invited to a 3rd round is denied.

What do you guys think? Do you agree?

I interviewed with more senior people yesterday. Every single interview has been with people from different teams so I don't know if it's for placement purposes as much as it is for fit within the division. I think this wasn't a tie breaker because for the second round, it clearly said second round, not final. I have a friend who worked there years ago and he also went through 3 rounds total of 7-8 interviews so I think this is standard procedure for a FT offer.
