I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 months - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2014.

Operations Analyst Interview

Operations Analyst
New York, NY

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

Compliance Officer

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

Private Client Banker

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

Vice President - Operations Interview

Vice President - Operations

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
