    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?

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in December 2014.

    Interview

    First round is phone interview with two VPs, about 20 mins each. First is behavioral, questions like introduce yourself, go through resume, why JPM, why finance, like sales or trading, why trading. Second is more a little more technical (maybe because the interviewer is from quant team), gave me questions to explain what i learned about GMM and ARCH in Econometrics, what QE is, and its impact to bond and equity market. AC is about one month later. Still waiting for it. JPMorgan guys are really nice and helpful.

    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.

    Trade Support Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Newark, DE) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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.
