    Summer Intern - Systems Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a few weeks afterward I was contacted by a JPMC representative to set up a phone interview. The initial date they offered would not work for me, but they were more than ok with rescheduling to fit my schedule. The phone interview was the only one I had and it was really just a bunch of behavioral questions: why do you want to work here; tell me about a difficult project you had to work on. I was nervous since it was my first interview ever, but the manager I spoke with was really cool and it was a two sided conversation instead of him just grilling me.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Two telephone interviews - second one had 'scheduling error' where they called 1 hr 20 mins early and then called back again 20 mins late.

    Onsite interview - one tech focused, one behavioral focused, and two more people who had never seen my resume before and told me they weren't very prepared.

    Around 7 hours total of interviewing totaling in zero feedback to myself and even to my agent.

    Extremely unprofessional. Very rigid HR process as well.

    Interview Questions
    • Not too difficult: write singleton class on the whiteboard, big O of searching some data structures, etc.   Answer Question

    Systems Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    One screening interview, followed by a loop interview consisting of a) technical, b) behavioral, c) light technical + company culture fit in-person interviews. Expect to do some light white-board coding and/or design articulation if this is a technical role.

    Interview Questions
    • Sometimes you will be asked questions that have nothing to do with your target role, e.g. a series of network design questions when you are interviewing for an application support position. This approach is by design - as much to see how you deal with the curve ball as to gauge the boundaries of your current knowledge.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is unbelievably long. Attended Quiz. Then I heard, it is going to be one interview and I will be done. Interview lasted for about exact 30 mins. Then they said, another interview, which supposed to last for 30mins, but took around55 mins. Back and forth, he asked questions. Then received an email saying they were impressed with 2 interviews. Got info that they want to do another 2 more interviews. I wanted the job. So, I said ok. I attended the 3rd interview. He was also drilling me like with lots of questions. He said, in another 30mins another person will be calling. He called and it was also the technical round. He was drilling me like anything. Told me to take a paper and pen and told me write down the commands. Whatever i answered, he argued for everything. Finally he got into my nerves, made me frustrated. Yelled at him finally saying a person with 10 years of real experience cannot even write this in a matter of 2 mins. Finally i did not get the job because of his feedback. You had to convince all the developers, i guess. I am a certified persons. Maybe they did not appreciate my certification. They would have thought that I am going to take up his job.

    Interview Questions
    • Refer to above. They should not go by one person's feedback. That person might not appreciate me on the current job.   Answer Question
