    Training Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager was really nice but didn't seen to have many questions to ask, it was a 15 minute interview if I didn't have my own questions. After going through some basic interview questions I was told that u would hear back shortly about a follow up interview next week, they even said they will be happy to work with my current job's schedule to make it happen. Over a month goes by hearing nothing to the receive an automated message that the position was filled. Found it highly unprofessional since I sent a thank you note, and an email asking for an update as I didn't her back when they said I should. Overall seemed like dull environment, so things worked in my favor.

    Real Estate Review Appraiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Westmont, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westmont, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied via JP Morgan website and was initially contacted a week later for a brief phone interview. Five questions later I was scheduling a personal interview. When I arrived staff and management appeared very disorganized. Reception was not expecting me and had no idea who I was supposed to meet with. I ended up discussing the position with four different people (separately) and most were disorganized with little or no direction to each interview. I was offered the position over the phone a day later, but I had decided after my interview it was not the place for me.

    Interview Questions
    • One interviewer said, "I don't know who you'll be working for, but do you want to talk with anyone else?"   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    The disorganization convinced me JP Morgan was not the place for me.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was directly going to the on site round. The director is very nice and he kind of help me to ease my nervous down, and I am able to express myself freely and fully. He talked some about the firm and department responsibility and what they are looking for. I shared some of my past experience and the skills matched with this positions. It was very like the casual conversation and did not have any tense feeling around. I think the director really did a good job in interviewing people.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through school online. Contacted about three weeks later for a basic phone interview. Emailed a week or so later inviting me to come up to Chicago for a four-ish hour morning interview block. There were three or four 15 minute conversations (not especially difficult -- they were pretty nice people, actually), and then a six or seven person group activity. They called with an offer about 10 days later.

    Interview Questions
    • The group activity was the most difficult part. It really isn't about the answer. It's about showing a little leadership and being open to other's ideas.   Answer Question

    Wasn't the area I wanted to be in.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard process with multiple rounds of interviews. It takes a little longer than most companies because of the size of the company and the decision-ing process requires multiple levels of approval. Overall it was not too painful and I got to speak to a wide range of people with which I ended up interacting.

    CIB-Core Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    This is the first interview I got from them, which was kind of a surprise since as I researched it, the position normally hires people with more experience than me. I was informed later by the behavioral interviewer that they are also hiring people who are looking for entry level jobs but with a wider range of past educational experience with multiple technologies.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical question were quite basic now that I think of it. One question asking me to use one single SQL query to retrieve information from two related tables given only one key information was something I did not prepared for since I only have very basic knowledge of it and have not used it for a while. The technical interviewer kindly informed me that I could use join table technique.   Answer Question
