Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Rolling Meadows, IL) in August 2010.

Interview

I was contacted by a recruiter. She invited me to apply to one of her openings. After applying, she followed up to schedule the interview. She told me that it was about 1 1/2 hour long process, it ended up taking over 3 hours. I was interviewed by two different DMs, then the market manager. Besides the long wait with no reading materials, it was a very pleasant experience. Mostly behavior based questions and role plays.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Chicago, IL) in June 2010.

    Interview

    First contact will be via email, asking you to call a specific recruiter to set up a phone screen. The phone screen is pretty basic, no real interview questions- just a review of your experience. In person interview is with 3-4 different people in a round robin format. You'll meet with several DM's and their boss.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work for chase?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    One of the DM's and the Market Mgr were complete morons. Both of them were extremely process and number oriented. Anytime I spoke about managing "people", they were at a loss. It was very obvious they didn't have a clue and were used to managing as opposed to leading. The scary thing is that both of them were chase lifers and had been in leadership positions for a long time. Its no wonder that Chase has high turn over, low job satisfaction, and terrible moral. I was extremely turned off by my interaction with their chicago leadership, it felt more like I was interviewing at a manufacturing plant or something.

    When they ask your previous salary, that is going to be the offer. So make sure you say what you want not what you last received.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2009.

    Interview

    Spoke with recuiter on the phone first. Met with her in person, she asked clarifying questions regading my overall management experiance. I guess I passed because I was then introduced to 3 district managers who asked questions "rapid fire" style! Finally I was introduced to the Market Manager

    Negotiation

    I tried but it seemed they were bound by some time of metrics system

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    I thought that the interview process was very laid back and effortless. Was a little disappointed that they left out that the branch was located within a Kroger/ Wal-mart until after the interview was over.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview

    3 interview system starting with a District manager, followed by a Market manager. If you pass all the interviews you receive a job offer which can be flexible in negotiation to a degree. Push for what you are worth and you will get further.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you can be successful leading a team in the financial market and what unique vision do you bring to the table.   1 Answer
