Financial Analyst Interview

Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2010.

Interview Details

Got an interview for a temporary position and was eventually hired full-time after being placed by a temporary staffing agency. The interview first began as a first round phone interview, then a face-to-face second round interview on site, followed by a third round face-to-face interview again on site. I was then called and given a start date for a week later. I was a temporary employee for 3 months before being put on a full-time salary.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview were held at my campus recruiting center and was half behavioral/fit and half math. I come from a history background so they didn't ask anything too technical. They were really looking for the way you think and approach problems so don't worry if you don't come from a finance or business background.

    The second round was at one of JPM's NY offices and consisted of two back-to-back half-hour interviews. Again, these were mostly behavioral with some math problems thrown in. In the second interview my interviewer gave me a kind of mini-case (like what you would get in a consulting interview) but it was very straightforward (you own a small coffee shop on a college campus, business is going bad: why is that and how can you fix it). They said I'd hear back from them in two weeks but I actually got an email asking to meet for a "follow up" a day later.

    I think this follow up was actually a kind of secret third round, just judging by what the people I spoke with (who had been hired into this position two years before) said. I just meet three JPM employees for coffee at one of their NY offices. This "round" was entirely fit questions (Why finance? Why JP Morgan Chase?) and was really just a good chance for the candidate to build rapport with the "interviewers" and ask questions. A little nerve-racking but the people I spoke with were very nice so that helped.

    Interview Questions
    • Probably "Why finance" seeing as I am a history major, but I have genuine interest in finance so I think that showed. Don't try to fake on this one, have an honest answer or else you might as well just say "I want a nice salary."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Basically no room for negotiation as I am coming an undergraduate entering into a program so the salary/benefits are basically set.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    JPMorgan was recruiting at my University for a commercial banking analyst position. It started off by applying through my University's system. They required a minimum GPA or 3.5 a finance degree, and they preferred extra hours of accounting, which I had. I was invited to meet with two bankers at my University. It was mostly a screening process. I was then told a couple of days later that I was invited to the final round in Houston. The interview started at 9 and lasted until 2. It was several rounds of interviews with different groups of bankers (each had a different market). There was one stress interview where I was asked this question.

    First the set up: There was a man and woman interviewing me. The man was wearing a black tie.

    Woman: My colleagu here is wearing a pink tie, but he swears to me that he is wearing a black tie. Would you please convince him that he is wearing a pink tie.

    That was one of the oddest questions I've ever had, and I froze. It took me a while to come up with something, and it was just awkward. I think it is the main reason why I wasn't given an offer. So heads up on some weird questions. They are just looking for you to keep your cool and keep talking calmly.

    Interview Details

    First phone screening. Then one-on-one campus interview. Then a Superday at JP Morgan's headquarters. Mostly fit questions, there are a few brain teasers and technicals here and there. Interviews aren't too hard but some of the interviewers have very unpleasant personalities.

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process lasted 1 day but was lengthy. I interviewed with the entire team which consisted of 5 people. The interviews last 30 minutes each. They all ask similar questions about your education, strengths, weaknesses, job experience, and skills. They stress honesty. They will likely go with the most experience candidate from what I have seen in this climate.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview was average difficulty, but they did want me to know certain financial concepts to be able to have a discussion about my future duties. People at the company are quite pleasant and easy to talk to. The interviews went well, but another candidate got selected for the position due to her higher qualifications. JPM did not contact me after the 2nd interview to update me on the status - had to follow up myself eventually.
