    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Lewisville, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I had a one on one interview with a member of the management team from the department I would be placed in. My interview lasted over an hour but I was told that was longer than usual. They asked standard questions that you may encounter during any interview such as, What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What previous experience do you have that relates to this position? How experienced are you in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint? Why would you be a good addition to Chase? What salary would you be satified with? etc.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Because I was referred by a current employee, I had an idea of what the salary range was and did my best to get a salary at the high end of that range. Considering I was interviewing for an entry level position, the salary range was quite low no matter what and there wasn't much room for negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Westerville, OH) in January 2010.

    Interview

    First things first. There is always this pent up excitement that hangs like a thick cloud in the air. It is wise to let your interviewer know that this interview means a lot. Come prepared. Bring pen, notepad, resume, CV, make eye contact, smile, and shake their hand. It would be a good idea to ask for a business card. (So you can find email and send a thank you letter). Be positive, follow up, and give evidence of your good fit. Aside from skillset, the employer is asking him or herself, "Can I work with this person?" Project a big ol' YES!!!!

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever been fired or misplaced from an employer?   Answer Question
    • Have you ever been charged or plead guilty to a misdemeanor? This can include something as simple as pleading guilty to an issued DUI.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary negotiation should be explored later in the interview. Feel it out. Some HR members/interviewers find the initial question a tad cheeky. Therefore, the question must be articulated tactfully. For example, "Is there a cap for the salary on this position?" Don't be afraid to ask the difficult questions. Show genuine interest, and be yourself.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Dallas, TX) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed at JP Morgan for 3 different positions. One was in Fee Billing. First interview was with two managers-one I would be working with, and one other manager. I had been referred by a friend who worked on the team, and contrary to her telling me 'he is so funny and nice'..my to-be manager was a tad uptight. I got the interview call really soon after my friend had referred my resume. The interview overall did not go well, and I was declined.

    Next interview was for a Business Analyst position- It was the most unusual one-because I met with the manager for 2 mins (very informal), and then had to meet with the other 5 team members who I would be working with. In the end, they told me they liked me, but wanted more VBA experience.

    3rd interview- Pricing Analyst position- I got called in by the recruiter from the first time-said it was because I had applied online. First round- manager, and then his boss separately. Second round- Interdepartmental interview with 2 managers who I wont be seeing again at all (Did not go well-in my opinion). Third round- Phone interview with a Manager in London. Finally got the offer, and I am so relieved alhum!!

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions- What are your strengths, weaknesses? What are your long term goals? Why do you want to work for JP?   Answer Question
    • Tons of behavioral questions encountered in the whole process- What would you do if there was a problem within your team etc..   2 Answers
    • One difficult one was- How do you take charge of your learning?   1 Answer
    • For Pricing Analyst position- I was asked about Excel Keyboard shortcuts   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not flexible. Was given a number-saying it was appropriate for my 0-1 years of experience. It was a higher figure than the average, and other similar jobs I have applied for, so I was happy.
