    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    My university had an initial online resume drop. After a week or so I was notified of 2 back to back on campus interviews. The back to back interviews were surprisingly technical; the first started with a brain teaser/case on how the company should choose between using first class or third class mail for the Chase branch. The second interview was more behavioral; however the hardest question was "If you had $1 million, how would you allocate/invest it in today's market?

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    After applying through my university recruiting platform, I was contacted for an on campus interview. The initial interview was very basic, all behavioral and fit questions. I was contacted after by 3 separate employees for successive phone interviews. Each of these was similar to the first, no technical and all behavioral.

    Interview

    Accelerated process for minority. Great firm. Great people who are sincere and down to earth. Everyone is willing to help and very intelligent. Super day in early November. Interview questions mostly market-based, as I am interviewing for Sales and Trading. there are a few brain teasers, but not that hard.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    One on campus interview--one or two fit questions followed by 3-4 brainteasers/probability questions. I was nervous and thought I wouldn't move on, but I did. Superday was 4 back-to-back one-on-one interviews (Executive Directors and Managing Directors). I only got fit questions that day, but I also come from a non-quantitative background and I think other interviewees got more technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I roll a die. If I roll a 1, I give you $1. If I roll a 2, I give you $2, and so on. Make me a market on this game, and explain why.   1 Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Got the interview through OCR. Typical behavioral questions and one technical question. Ultimately, given the answers the interviewers provided to my questions, it didn't seem like a place in which I'd like to work.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    Interview

    30 minutes interview that drilled on specific stats ranging from what the s&p was at for the day to libor rates for o/n, 30 day etc. Not as much behavioral for a first round, but definitely tested the amount of articles you have read about what was going on in the markets. The amount of knowledge required takes a few days to learn not just a few hours because of the scope that they test you on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Two mid-managers from Chicago office interviewed me. It is an overall very behavioral-question based interview. Most of them about past internship and academic experiences. One brain teaser (fairly easy). Several questions about market (interest rate etc). It's a relatively relaxed and easy interview. The hiring process involves two-round interviews, first round and a superday.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in September 2009.

    Interview

    The S&T Analyst interviews start as an informal dinner the night before interviews. This is a great opportunity to meet your potential interviewer and get to know more about the firm and culture. The first round interview is highly dependent on your interviewer, but it's safe to say you'll be asked a lot about your resume/work experience & interests along with your motivation for applying to the job. There will be some market related questions and some simple math or brainteasers to judge your quantitative ability. The second round superday was similar, in that it was 4 30 mins interviews that were fairly similar. Everyone asks you about you, your past experience, your interests, your knowledge of markets and what you expect to learn/do. Everyone I came across was very positive and nice, but not easy or complacent.
