Trade Support Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2014.
Interview Details – I applied through an agency. I had 3 interviews, each one lasting about 2 hours, interviewing with 3 different managers each time. All of them were asking very similar questions. At certain point you start omitting details thinking that you already give that information. Most of the managers were very friendly, others were just in a hurry to finish the interview and not very pleasant. Overall, I think the hiring process of this organization, which business I really admire, is very inefficient. They would call you for several interviews and never give you any feedback. After the first interview, they should know if you are a fit for the company or not. Not making you comeback wasting your time and theirs.
Interview Question – Excel questions. Mostly questions about my resume, give examples of the skills I claim to have.
The most difficult question was: If you are selected for this position, you would have to train with an employee that has been working with the company for several years and is going to loose his job and be replaced by you. How would you handle this situation in case this person is not very cooperative? Answer Question

Sales & Trading Summer Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2012.
Interview Details – 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.
Sales and Trading Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2012.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Name some reasons JP Morgan been in the news recently. Answer Question
Summer Sales&Trading Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2010.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – What did you do in your xxx internship? Answer Question
Trading Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2009.
Interview Details – Campus recruitment begins with a single thirty minute interview, then they let you know if you've made the cut or not for juniors. For freshmen and sophomores, you're invited to NY for a series of individuals with different backgrounds. One of the best things about JPM is the speed of the interview process.
Interview Question – Why do you want to do trading? Answer Question

Sales & Trading Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in September 2009.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – I have $1 million dollar to invest; what should I buy or sell? Answer Question
