    Technology Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school's career website. On-campus interview requested around a few weeks later. I selected the earliest interview slot because I would rather be first or last in the interview lineup. It was 30 minute interview with a mix of behavioral and technical questions. I received an email a few days later that decisions of moving on will be sent in a week. In a week, I received a notification that I was selected for their Super Day. Super Day was on a Friday from 1:30pm-3:30pm. Most of us got in at 1pm and were able to talk to current analysts. The interview was split into three 30 minute parts: two behavioral/technical interviews and a presentation about a project you completed in the past. The order is random, but I got a sit down talk, presentation, and another sit down. The sit down talks are both behavioral/technical. The presentation was me talking for 15 minutes and the other 15 for questions. Got an email 4 days later with the job offer.

    Summer Technology Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    There were two back to back 30 minute interviews, both of which were very similar. Most of the questions asked were behavioral questions, and a few questions on a programming language. The questions were pretty easy, they try to make you feel comfortable. They put more emphasis on behavioral questions, I would focus more on those than the programming questions. I received an offer around two weeks after the interviews. As long as you do research on the company, ask good questions, and answer most questions correctly, you should have a good experience.

    Technology Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    They reached out for an interview with me. They had one date open during which I had a conflict and they only gave me a two week notice before it. I was no able to make that interview. Took me calling their Technology Analyst Program HR members approximately 8 times to receive a call back for them notifying me that they were no longer seeking candidates for this position. They contacted me for an interview and basically dropped the ball and had the worst communication I have ever seen from a well established company. This was an absolutely horrendous job by their HR department.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career system and was able to schedule an on-campus interview with two VPs from the SD branch. They were very nice and the process was very smooth. The 1st interview was very basic/behavioral and pretty much just went over my resume. I highly encourage you to study on why commercial banking is a good fit for you and explicitly show your interests.

    Interview Details

    The gentleman was very polite, after a bit of chit chat he asked a few technical questions and a few behavioral questions. There is a second part to the interview with a different representative who was unable to make it and so there will be a phone interview, basically going over the same types of questions to avoid bias in the process.

    I applied online – interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty clear cut. A phone screening that covered fit/behavioral questions to see if there is a fit. Then, JPM flew me out to a superday. At the office, I went through a series of interviews that was mostly behavioral, but with technical intertwined within each question. For instance, if one of your answers talks about stocks, they will dive deeper to see if you actually know about stocks and bonds. Pretty clear cut.
