I applied online - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2013.

Interview Details – This process is a joke. The job ad went up on a Friday afternoon, and I applied on a Sunday night. So the ad had literally been up only 48 hours. I had precisely the experience they asked for. Every bullet point they had, I hit. Keep in mind, this particular role required some very obscure skills, which I had as well.

One day later "Sorry you were not chosen to interview". OK. So are you telling me that after 48 hours (on a weekend, no less) you somehow got all the applicants for the role that intended to apply, looked over all their resumes, got in touch with the hiring managers, and then made your choice, choosing from the best applicants? Right. I just don't see how that is possible, because it's not. How do you reject someone before other people have even applied? Who are you rejecting them against?

My guess, is that there is some not too bright person who is not able to grasp what the role really is all about, and how many people out there can actually do that job, and just pushes the "reject" button without knowing who or what they are rejecting. Or maybe some higher ups are not too bright either and don't want someone with more experience to make themselves look bad. Either way. Yuck.

Interview Question – None, because I am not convinced they even read your resume   Answer Question

I applied through other source - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2012.

Interview Details – I attended a conference and got this interview. A statistician interviewed with me and asked a lot of questions. One question was like this, why those chase branches that had strong windows got robbed more. The interviewer also asked about how to deal with missing data and variable selections.

Interview Question – I didn't give an instantaneous response to that robbery and window question.   View Answer

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details – I had 2 one on one interviews. I the first one did not go as well as I expected to because the interviewer did not seem to be that interested in my skill set. I had a better experience with the second, she was easy to talk to and had a lot of questions about my experience.

Interview Question – What do you need to work on?
Tell me about you problem solver skills?

I applied online and interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details – As a test, I sent my application at 5PM on a bank holiday. Thus, they were closed. At 6PM I got an email saying I was rejected. But they "thoroughly reviewed my qualifications." Right. How is that possible when you were closed that day? Why do you post job that do not exist?

Interview Question – None, because they did not even read my application.   Answer Question

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process is unbelievably long. Attended Quiz. Then I heard, it is going to be one interview and I will be done. Interview lasted for about exact 30 mins. Then they said, another interview, which supposed to last for 30mins, but took around55 mins. Back and forth, he asked questions. Then received an email saying they were impressed with 2 interviews. Got info that they want to do another 2 more interviews. I wanted the job. So, I said ok. I attended the 3rd interview. He was also drilling me like with lots of questions. He said, in another 30mins another person will be calling. He called and it was also the technical round. He was drilling me like anything. Told me to take a paper and pen and told me write down the commands. Whatever i answered, he argued for everything. Finally he got into my nerves, made me frustrated. Yelled at him finally saying a person with 10 years of real experience cannot even write this in a matter of 2 mins. Finally i did not get the job because of his feedback. You had to convince all the developers, i guess. I am a certified persons. Maybe they did not appreciate my certification. They would have thought that I am going to take up his job.

Interview Question – Refer to above. They should not go by one person's feedback. That person might not appreciate me on the current job.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in April 2010.

Interview Details – It was not as formal as I thought it should have been, most of the questions asked did not cover the job description as advertised on their website. I tried to talk about my current working experience, but it seem they were more concern with how I would handle employee flare ups, rather than how to subvert such flares from arising.

Interview Question – How would you deal with employee insubordination to an assigned task.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in June 2010.

Interview Details – First round was a 30 minute phone interview, was called in for a second interview a few days later. The second interview took place over 6.5 hours and was conducted by a dozen employees 1-2 at a time. Very repetitive, a lot of discussion of my interest in the field and the company in particular. A couple questions designed to test my analytical abilities that were not too hard.

Interview Question – Give an example of a time you were morally challenged.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2009.

Interview Details – started with why should I hire you, went through my resume, and then asked technical question like Java polymorphism, threading, deadlock and some database question like index, candidate key and normalization. I answered all the questions along with some examples, but it did get back to me after the interview.

The process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2009.

Interview Details – Interviewers were friendly. It was a first round interview for a new analyst position. Asked standard questions about resume. Most questions were fit questions. There were a few accounting questions thrown in there too. Overall not too bad but I think the deciding factor was the fit. I did not make it to the next round.

Interview Question – Walk me through your resume   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

Interview Details – 3 interviews, 1 with hiring manager, 6 with their colleagues including MDs, PMs, VPs, Head of Research. Most questions were nice chats about investment style, strategy, holding period in current job, approaches, how stock selection is done and on what criteria. Interviews too approximately 5 hours. The last round was a presentation which I didn't get to do reason being my weak analytical skills (which was rather a misunderstanding I think as I believe for most part they are fine and performance is there to prove it) and investment style (always thought the style is taken over as you join the firm but I think they are looking for a very specific person there).

Interview Question – Describe why you would set a specific cost of equity for a bank in specific region when using GGM / have absolutely full understanding of valuation process theory.   View Answer
