AML/KYC Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.
Interview Details – The recruiter contacted me based on a submitted profile. He was eager to get me in for an interview as the hiring managers were right in the middle of a huge hiring wave, and were in town for 2 weeks. He spoke to me on the phone for 20-25 minutes, said he was very excited to put me forward and thought I was a very strong candidate based on my resume, my background and my phone personality. He asked for a very easy writing sample (250-300 words and gave me a very easy topic). Once that was submitted he got me scheduled for an interview for the following week. He was there the day of the interview. It was 2 separate interview with 2 people per interview. One was the HR person and one was in the management/leadership chain. Both interviews lasted about 20-30 min, max. Both were different but asked some of the same questions. They asked about writing ability, ability to stand up for myself against senior level people, ability to analyze issues, do research, and some general leadership traits. I got a great sense that the interview was going very well. They explained the position and the structure of the bank in great detail and told me exactly where I would be working and the kind of work they expected me to do. The position was fairly new so they made it clear that things could be very different and that I should expect to be flexible. The recruiter met me after both interviews were over and told me that the first set of interviewers had already told him they were impressed. He reinforced the salary range that he quoted me when we had the phone interview. They said they planned to make a decision within the next 2 weeks. I received a call back about 4 days later making me the offer. They made an offer at the top end of the salary that he quoted me. Although it was a decrease in pay from my previous job (which they asked about) they ensured me that it was a bonus-eligible position which should help with the overall compensation.
Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. It was mostly personality based. All the skills necessary for the job were apparent from my background and resume. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I told them what I made at my previous job, and told them what I was expecting. I was given a salary range by the recruiter prior to the in person interview and when they made the offer it was the top end of the salary quote. The salary quoted was only base compensation and did not include bonus.
Operations Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.
Interview Details – I had someone give me his direct number & email after seeing the posting online. The secretary shot me down. Had a brief phone interview from a nice lady, and then scheduled a meeting in Fidi the same week. He rescheduled for meeting at the midtown office last minute. This is the very end of May, so things were quick. He had me brought in. Basically, he liked my grit. It was a 15 minute conversation over coffee with little meaningful dialogue. I told him the truth when he asked why I applied to his job opening; that it was the only summer internship posted(this was end of May). He didn't know why he received 100+ apps in a week. He promised to call me back in a week and said that whoever he interviews will be included in the 2 yr Ops Development program later on. He never followed up. Never answered/replied to calls/emails.
He tried to label me an 'adrenaline junkie'.
Interview Question – He asked me "Why Operations?" about 5 times. Have a good example for why you're a team player. What do you do for stress relief? Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview
Compliance Officer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in June 2013.
Interview Details – Very thorough and rigorous process. Five interviews later and received an offer. The multiple interviews were unnecessary to determine if an individual is a good fit. Manager's were knowledgeable and informative. HR was not very friendly, and the process was very lengthy. The salary is firm and nothing was left for negotiation.
Interview Question – Do you know what position you are applying for? Why should we hire you? Answer Question
Private Client Banker Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2013.
Interview Details – I was an internal hire for the company. I excelled as a relationship banker for 3 years prior to the opportunity. I had made it known to my superiors it was a position I was interested in. Once the position became available, I got the first shot. It only took 1 interview with the district manager. The interview is pretty standard. A lot of character questions and role play.
Interview Question – I honestly don't remember specifics, but be prepared to role play different scenarios. They will ask questions such as dealing with a difficult client or getting pushback Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not really much room for negotiations. They normally offer the max possible for a banker role which differs from different areas. Base pay is not really impressive but its expect you make up the majority of your pay through commisions
Trainer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in September 2010.

Vice President - Operations Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at J.P. Morgan
Interview Details – The interview process is comprised of a thorough round of an interactive round of question and answer. This includes providing a detailed overview of the position and addressing any questions that the candidate may have. Questions are then posed to the candidate to gauge interest and fit for the role.
Interview Question – The most difficult is, after hearing an in-depth overview of the position for which you're interviewing is to then quickly explain why you are a good fit for the role. While this seems easy, it can prove difficult to put your talents in the context of the job description that was provided a few minutes prior. Answer Question
