    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The Interview process was very informal however there were four interviews in all including the hiring manager, mortgage bankers regional manger, branch manager and banking regional manager. Each interview was fairly straight-forward with no real difficulties. They are all big on customer service and performance data.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was selected for phone technical interview for 30 mins in Nov. Interviewer asked pretty much about the technical skills I used and mentioned in my resume. Overall good interview experience.

    Got second round phone call for panel technical interview for 2 hours immediately in one week. It was for SOA services group, As my background matched with the technical skills. We proceeded. Some of the questions I recollected are about :
     - Asking for outer/inner join
    - challenges faced in creating xml schema, and webservices
    - Core java questions
    - And last person (Manager) asking for OOP question ( polymorphism, concrete class, abstract class etc). Overall 2 hrs interview was good experience.

    I did not hear anything for 2 months. In Jan 2012 HR called and mentioned, they would like to have one more round of technical interview with higher officials with architecture group. I agreed and proceeded for phone interview. Person who was suppose to take did not call, other colleague who joined group recently called. Well, all I was concerned to get the interview. after a while he said he had to go in 30 mins.. though he has lot of questions for me. As a interviewer I was thinking if the person who was suppose to take interview was not available, it could have been rescheduled, it was waste of everyone's time and preparation. Anyways, this architect took rigorous deep technical interview for 30 mins. and said HR would contact me.

    After a week Manager call me and ask me to come down to the chase office for causal talk and he did mention its just casual nothing technical. I agreed immediately and visited the facility, to my surprise, Architects from other place visited that location for that week. And they grilled me technically. I did not expect a casual meeting means technical grill. very unprofessional. I wish manager could have set the expectation and inform me that I would be meeting architects.

    After 4 rounds of interview and wait for 4 weeks I did not hear anything from JPMC. I spent so much time and effort, I was expecting a feedback. I did send email to HR for feedback, they never replied.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter arranged initial 1-on-1 interviews.
    Interviews with project lead, programmer, and manager. Phone screen from remote team member.
    Very open work environment. Was as much a sales pitch to me as it was an interview. Basic background questions followed by some deeply specific technical questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had to do IKM Java 6 tests online via agents, need to score as close to 100 to get past this point and in top 90% and above.

    The questions are of dubious value to a real programmer as if I had to deal with the code presented I would have ripped most of it out and rewrote it, honestly most of the questions broke some principle from Joshua Bloch's book Effective Java with horrible calls and casts to parent objects then you had to decipher what method would actually get called. The rest is rote learning on packages and flow structure.

    Interview Questions
    • I think they relegate strong people who have a wide range of skills not just java and low level knowledge of threads and poorly designed class hierarchy snafu's but thats their perogative and I'm sure you'll get plenty of people who can ace this part but can't really integrate or have other soft skills like human conversation... ;-)   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was invited to schedule a first round telephone interview. It lasted for forty five minutes. The questions were mainly technical: brainteasers, probability questions, stochastic calculus, numerical methods, integrals and programming.
    The probability questions were fairly simple, dice problems mainly. I found the integrals and programming questions a bit more challenging.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a question about a change of variable in a multiple integral. Don't forget about the Jacobian.   Answer Question

    Private Banking Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, did the online test and finally got the first round interview. The interview consists of 2 rounds, both with 2 interviewers. The 1st round was with the investment side of Private Banking. I was asked about my CV and my view on the markets. Standard stuff - Why JPMorgan Private Banking? Tell me more about yourself. Do yo have any views on the markets? If I met your professor, your previous boss and closest friends, what would each say to you? If you could have dinner with 1 person dead or alive, who would it be?

    Second interview was more of a casual chat. The interviewers were Private Bankers and stayed away from markets questions. It was more of a discussion on my CV. They also expected me to reciprocate a lot, like asking questions about themselves and taking an interest. I felt this interview round was more of a "how you interact with people" as a fit to the role more than competencies or technical questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bournemouth, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Logic reasoning and numerical tests first, then the first round interview. You ***MUST*** bring the email they sent you in the online application system (not even in your email). The security guard don't care about applicant if you don't know the name of your contact. And this is just ridiculous, i've got interview in other tech and consulting giants and none of then asked me for the bloody letter. The interview started late for half an hour. Technology interview was easy and very general, the guy was easy going, 15yrs+ exp. in JPM. The competence interview was humiliating, being assumed to be a liar in the very first question... The lady was absolutely offensive and in no way that I can work with her, if she is going to be my supervisor. In general, the interview was badly organised, and the process was different from the description stated online. All the applicants were confused on the day
