Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details

It wasn't easy, but it was good. Some interviewers were intense, others were very laid back. It was about 60/40 behavioral to technical. Be careful with your answers because the interviewers may use it against you in future questions. I prepared for it and it really helped.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school career center. Response was prompt and the interview was easier than expected. Two JPMorgan workers interviewed me both from the commercial banking sector. This may be just me, but they only asked me one true behavioral interview question (when have you been a leader). I assume others may get more depending on who you are being interviewed by. If you are able to hold a conversation and stay interested in what the interviewers have to say, you should be fine.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Met with some recruiters at a NABA National Convention, where I interviewed on the spot. The interviews with two MDs were pretty relaxed and didn't consist of any technical questions, just picked my brain to see where my interests lied. However, the position offered I was not too interested in so they returned with a new opportunity. This time I had two back to back phone interviews about 30min each where it was pretty conversation based. There was one algebraic question about the ball and bat.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication came from a recruiter who reviewed my online application. An email with potential interview times was given to choose from and an appointment was set. Interview in Downtown Dallas (Plaza of the Americas) with the Hiring Manager. It seemed very disorganized as the floor and room were not reserved; pretty unprofessional for the potential career.

    The interview questions were very standard which included situational and behavioral questions along with a little back and forth between myself and the manager. Make sure your ideas and examples are well thought out and aggressive as she had a tendency to over-speak everything I said. She also informed of the School that she went to and noted that almost every person on her team was from the same school. There were many trick questions thrown in about the company structure; my personal favorite was "What is the first and last name of our CEO?" -- hit or miss. The competition for this position was also very stiff with a noted "8 other applicants" I would be compared against.

    The position requirements were 1-2 years of banking experience with a degree in business, prefferably Finance or Accounting. The posting also informed that only "recent college graduates" would be asked to provide their transcripts for review. However, this was plainly not true as I have several years of experience and they still requested the transcripts.

    Several weeks went by before any word, then another email from the recruiter came through asking if I would be interested in another interview. We scheduled a time for what I understood was the initial position not knowing that she indeed filled the position and brought me in as a runner up. It was clear that she had no intention on pursuing my candidacy as she raced through the questions and cut me off multiple times; the manager even brought a 250 page 10K to the interview and asked me to explain to her what certain parts of it meant. After about 10 minutes of very awkward interviewing, she brought me to another room where I was administered a test and was given 30 minutes to calculate debt service coverage (dsc) ratios for a given company. Once that was finally over, she went through the test marking everything that was right or wrong and escorted me out of the building.

    I was not offered the position, and frankly am delighted as I can see it would have been a very difficult place to deal with. The atmosphere was not welcoming in the least; I strongly encourage all potential applicants to really consider the benefits of the position to the stresses that you may endure.
