Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in September 2011.

Interview Details – Expect a lot of interviews, one with each functional area you will work with (Business, QA, Architecture, App Dev, UAT, a few peers, hiring manager, and 2 levels up.) keep in touch with the recruiter, Approval and offer can take time.

Interview Question – A few logic problems asked to solve them during interview. Handed printed out mock email string and asked to read thru and asked how would you handle this situation. Expect to be grilled over SDLC, Agile methodology, sharing experience and examples of problem solving using analytical, communication, and leadership skills.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Had a good idea of the range thanks to GlassDoor, prior experience and prior discussions with external headhunters, asked for a number recruiter came back with only $3k less than what I had asked for, along with the caveat that the avg bonus was around 6k. My 1st yr bonus ended up being more than double that.

Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2013.

Interview Details – One 30- minute phone interview with a senior manager who asked basic interview questions about your résumé and experience. 2nd round interview was at JP Morgan in Chicago with about 7-10 other interviewees. This consisted of two 30-minute interviews and a 10-15 minute presentation in which you present on any technology-based project that you have worked on. Interview process and questions was rather basic.

Interview Question – They asked a lot about coding experience and what servers I have worked on. Most of them I have never even heard of, but it was fine because they still gave me an offer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not even try to negotiate because the compensation package was a lot better then my other offers.

Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst
Syracuse, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2011.

Interview Details – i applied through my school's website and received a phone call for interview. The interviewer in Syracuse was very knowledgeable and open minded. He would hire students from various majors and place them in a positions that have little or no resemblance.

I had a 1 on 1 interview in Lyman Hall. Based on my experience, it was an average level interview. Primarily he asked me questions related to my resume and relevant coursework. He would also ask what I know about JPMC.

Some advices is to research about the position you're applying for and try to know as much as you can regarding the business lines JPMC owns. Know a little bit about the history of the company as well. JPMC likes candidates who are proactive, professional, and constantly wanting to learn.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – You should not negotiate unless you are applying for management positions. Compensation are based on average taken from websites like monsterlot.com. Although the compensation in the corporate sector is already pretty good.

Interview Questions

  • You have 3 gallon container and 5 gallon container, how do you get exactly 4 gallons.   View Answer
  • Monkey climbing a slippery pole problem. Also describe a typical SDLC project you were involved in end to end.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They ask what you are expecting (know what you are worth use glassdoor and other resources) their offer was in line with what market dictates and I got a little extra (probably because of my experiece and MBA). The offer process(after I knew that they were going to be making me an offer) took weeks, needed CIO approval but they came back with only 2000 less than what I had asked for but offered another additional 7000 in bonus based on performance.

Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied under the university programs at JPMorgan Chase career page for 2012 Technology Analyst Development Program on November 21, 2011. The campus recruiter will receive your application. If the recruiter is interested in you they will send a email asking you to fill out this spreadsheet application and to send your most current resume. I received this email on December 1, 2011. A week later on December 8, 2011, I received an email from the recruiter asking my location preference. Then the recruiter will select who gets phone interview by hiring managers. I received an email about scheduling a phone interview on December 13, 2011. I received another email from the recruiter confirming the date and time of the phone interview. My phone interview was on December 21, 2011. It was very technical with some behavioral based questions. On January 4, 2012, I received an email that I was selected for the Super final (2nd) round interview which was on January 11, 2012 from 1pm - 4:30pm. After your phone interview if selected for 2nd round interviews you will go to Super Day on campus (JPM worksite) for the final (2nd) round interviews which consists of two interviews and one 10-15 minute presentation on a technical project of your choice. Final rounds were more behavioral based than technical. The final round interviews and presentation was a lot more relaxed than I had anticipated. I was notified on the same day by the recruiter that I had received a offer. But they say it can take up to one week to be notify whether you got a offer or rejection. I say normally it takes one to two days for notification of offer. But the hiring managers and recruiter will make decisions on the same day as the interviews who will get a offer or rejection. It took about a week to receive actually offer letter. Throughout whole interview process you will interview with hiring managers usually in your choice of position if that role is available.

Business Systems Analyst Interview

Business Systems Analyst
Columbus, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2011.

Interview Details – My communication with the company from start to finish was very professional. They came to my school through the career services, and met many candidates, of which they only took two to work in Columbus. It was a very rigorous interview, but the two recruiters were very amiable. Columbus is the area of their tech hub, and is a very great place to work.
