    a lot of technical questions, went really in details, obviously if you choke on one question they will try to eff you up even more.

    even though i didn't get the job, it helped a lot experience wise, i realised what i needed to work on and how they would actually conduct an interview of the kind.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    There was online testing, competency questions and then a first round interview at their offices in London. Also I had to submit my CV. I had previously undertaken an insight visit at JPM, but this didn't help at interview, although I think it was important in me being able to get to interview in the first place
    The first round interview consisted of two 45 minute competency based interviews.

    Applied online and had an assessment centre day in their London office. It went almost perfectly but because they're the best you have to be perfect. I was let down by my performance in the Group Discussion despite the other areas scoring very highly.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 interviews, 1 with hiring manager, 6 with their colleagues including MDs, PMs, VPs, Head of Research. Most questions were nice chats about investment style, strategy, holding period in current job, approaches, how stock selection is done and on what criteria. Interviews too approximately 5 hours. The last round was a presentation which I didn't get to do reason being my weak analytical skills (which was rather a misunderstanding I think as I believe for most part they are fine and performance is there to prove it) and investment style (always thought the style is taken over as you join the firm but I think they are looking for a very specific person there).

After 2 hours of written test, there were first Project Lead round and Project Manager Round. Even after all these interview rounds, interview process does not end here.

    Interview Details

    I had to pass a series of Brain Bench tests to be considered for an interview. Then I had a technical phone interview which was quite challenging. Next, I was called in for a panel interview, where I was quizzed both verbally and by written test. Finally, I had one last interview with the hiring manager and project lead. All in all, it was quite an interview process!
