    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Walnut Creek, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Started with a brief phone screening; then first in person interview- standard interview, asked about experience, past performance, why I was looking to leave current job etc. At the end of that interview, I was told he wanted to have me meet with his boss, and that the admin would be in touch to schedule it. Didn't hear from her until I reached out again, but then was scheduled for round 2 a week or so later. That interview was more of the same, although I also had to role play a few sales scenarios. Knew it went well, and a few days later got a call discussing an offer with terms, etc, pending my background check clearing and my drug test being clear. Both of those were fine (surprisely no credit check), but I decided the pay was too low for me and declined the offer

    Interview Questions

    • Can you role play how you would call a client who just made a large deposit to try and uncover an investment opportunity?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay too low, didn't care for the manager I'd report to (unprofessional and seemed unintelligent)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Ann Arbor, MI) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I initially had a phone interview with the hiring manager and was then brought in to do a face to face with him. Since I am securities licensed they did a pre-background check on my licenses and contacted my previous employer. After that I was asked to attend an open house on the opportunity where prior to I did a presentation to 2 investment managers and then met with two other managers informally and the senior investment manager for the region along with a district manager for the bank branches. I then met with the district manager and branch manager of the branch I was slated to take the position in.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to present a non product specific investment solution as if it was being done to a client, the purpose was to assess my selling ability along with overcoming objections.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really isn't a whole lot of negotiation involved since it is a commission job, although they do pay a base salary it is charged against your commissions to essentially you are straight comm.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was very ordinary and what you would expect from a Bank. The sales manager was new to his position and it was obvious that he had not conducted many interviews in the past. I could tell he was new and didn't have a lot of the answers to the questions I had asked of him.
