    Freshmen and Sophomore Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    As a freshman from a non-core undergrad b school, I made it to the second round interview for JP Morgan's Fresh/Soph IBD Summer Analyst Program in New York. For the first round, I was interviewed by an analyst and was asked the standard "Run me through your resume" question. Standard IB technical questions, "how would you build a DCF model?" Nothing out of the blue (no M&A/LBO questions). For the second round, I interviewed with an associate. For a nervous freshman, I thought I did quite well, but found out 4-5 weeks later that I didn't make it to the third round.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    They have preferred placement vendors; who will test you over and above, what is required for the role. (eg) They pay for couple online exams for DBA, etc.,
    Then the manager and few team members invited for telephone interview, in which they went over my resume and asked technical questions based on the skills: RDBMS, Unix, Windows, Shell scripting, Business Objects, etc.,
    Then the vendor arranged for an in person interview.

    Interview Questions
    • ** In person interview gave me the surprise, that the job was for application support and not really DBA. :) Same manager and team members, explained the job role.
      Two more managers from different teams, interviewed me individually, pretty much intended to check the attitude, to fit the company culture.
      Overall my interview was not tough.

    Associate Corporate & Investment Bank Technology Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews followed by an in-person (Half day, 4 people)

    Location was in Brooklyn--they recently moved a lot of people to MetroTech Center. I didn't like the area surrounding the office, but the office itself was pretty nice. Pretty quiet, low-key atmosphere. There is no business presence in Brooklyn as far as I can tell, so no trading floors etc.

    People were nice and relaxed.

    Interview Questions
    • 2 eggs and a building problem. A building has height n and you have 2 eggs. At a certain floor N, an egg dropped from this floor will break. Find a strategy to find the floor N at which eggs will start breaking, while minimizing the number of drops. Note that the key is that you have 2 eggs.   View Answer
    • Given a list and bucket size, write an algorithm which returns a list of lists each of which contains [bucket size] number of items. It's not guaranteed that the bucket size will evenly divide into the length of the list. How can you unit test this? What are the base/edge cases?   View Answer
    • Given an unsorted list of size n-1 that contains all but one number between 1 and n, write an algorithm that will detect the missing number. Can you do this in constant time? What about if there were k numbers?   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for 3-4 positions on their website. I received two interview calls. First was a telephone screening interview with a manager (VP) and two developers. They had not read through my resume and asked theoretical questions straight out of college textbook. I had 9+ years of experience, and felt that the questions were not really applicable for the position. I did not get a call for a follow-up interview.

    First part of the second interview was 1:1. The interview was technical. The manager (VP) and developers asked questions about programming in Java, multi-threading, etc. I was asked to look at a piece of code and identify the error in it. Rest of the interview was typical. The manager explained the work done by his group and the functionality of the software. They went through my resume and asked questions about previous work experience. Second part was a phone interview with a ED from NY. It was non-technical in nature and focused on conflict resolution, managing priorities etc. Overall, both interviews for the second position went well.

    Interview Questions
    • Multi-threading, Java, Spring, Hibernate, HTML5, Flex, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The HR made a firm offer and refused to negotiate. No sign-on bonus. No offer of guaranteed annual bonus (to be performance based). The offer was good, so I accepted.
