Applications Developer Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details

Was asked to apply through a friend. Had an hour long phone interview with technical lead. They asked me to write a sample fully functional application using Ruby on Rails. A little background on me I have coded in Ruby for less than a year and have never coded in Rails. I successfully completed the assignment in a couple of days. The team reviewed my code and brought me in for a face to face group setting interview with over 10 people. Each person then asked technical and personal details related to the application they were working on. During the interview several people cursed and one playfully threw a notebook at another team member (not me). After the interview the team lead pressured me very hard to give him my current salary which I did not do. The entire process never spoke to an HR person or the hiring manager. In the end they said my skills in Ruby were not up to par.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Referred by a friend, received phone interview two days letter, and then interviewed at JP Morgan for 3 and half hours with 4 people one week later. At first, I thought the interview to be a OO focused one, so I prepared a lot for OO design question since the team used SmallTalk as the programming tool. It turned out the question is more focused on what I have learnt in maths and finance, not too much OO.

    Interview Questions

    The process started with a written test. It was conducted by a third party "merittrack".
    The paper consists of 3 sections.
    1.verbal english
    2.numerical ability test
    3.analytical test
    the paper was easy but time is not sufficient.
    verbal english consists of reading comprehension,articles,prepositions etc.
    they will give papers one after the other.
    they collect each paper after completion of specified time then next paper will be given.
    verbel english -15Q -----20mins
    numerical -20Q-----20mins
    analytical -25Q------20mins.

    the next day company people came , almost 15 members came to take the interviews.
    initially there was PPt, later they announced the results of written test.

    Interview consists of 2 rounds:
    1.Technical
    2.Hr & Technical

    IN 1st round of interview they mainly concentrated on your project mentioned in CV and some oops and dbms concepts.

    2nd round was teken by 3 members :1-hr and directors of the branch
    started with the question "tell me about yourself" and why JPMorgan etc...
    again they asked me about my projects.
    They asked me questions like "situations like where i worked as a team player" etc.
    the overall process went quite well

    Interview Details

    I was brought in to interview after attending their information sessions on campus. Built a good network with the recruiters. The interview panel consisted of one of the guys from the session and another HR guy. Questions were mostly behavioral, they asked about my internship experience and campus involvement. Were very professional and nice. Got an email a week later saying they could not continue the interview process because of my visa requirements.
