    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with three people in person, separately. I don't believe I had a phone interview, at least not like the ones I had with other banks where the HR person interviews you like a real interview over the phone. Hired within two months from the first interview. First interview was with the boss and then with the boss's peers. Friendly interviewers. They made you feel at ease. No hard questions. Just the standard: Why do you want to work here? Tell me about yourself. What do you know about the position. They never asked the type of compensation I was looking for. HR kept me in the loop, but I had to call a few times to see the status.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I completed the application online and was immediately contacted by a recruiter from Chase. She was extremely pleasant and completed an initial interview with me over the phone to assure that I was well qualified for the position. I was then scheduled to come in for a panel interview(3 Managers). I was very please with the interviewers and the process. All of the managers were very pleasant, down to earth and very informative. They made the interview feel very comfortable, yet they maintained their professionalism. I felt very confident interviewing for Chase. The environment was also very friendly. I was greeted by everyone who passed by and it seems like they really have a great group of people working for them. I am looking forward to working with Chase!

    Interview Questions
    • Majority of the questions were behavioral questions.For example, Name a time where a company policy made it easy for you to not follow the rules? This was a difficult one to answer.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

    Interview Details

    Applied online after talking to someone at an on campus event. First round was a phone interview about two weeks after I applied. Questions were a mix of behavioral and general finance questions. The next step was an on site interview about a few weeks later. This interview was a super day where 25 or so other people were all on site to interview for the internship. They split us into groups of 5 with 4 interviewers per group. We rotated to each of the interviewers for a 30 minute interview with each person and one 30 minute break. The actual interviews all varied. One was just a light behavior one and more of a chat about past work, hobbies and things like that. Another was a fast paced interview where questions were thrown at you about finance, the market, personal questions, and anything else. The other two interviews were a somewhere where in between. What annoyed me about this process was that 3 of the 4 people I interviewed with seemed to be intentionally mean to try and test you. The interviews seemed mostly not be about performing under pressure.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was particularly difficult or unexpected. It was all stuff you should have scene in any finance interview study guides. It was only difficult because the questions were rattled off so fast and if you didn't answer quickly and confidently you'd be pushed further down that line of questions.   Answer Question

    AML Compliance Analyst - Contractor to Permanent Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Newark, DE
    Anonymous Employee in Newark, DE
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    They like to bring on new hires through staffing agencies.

    When the contracting period ends---they will attempt to make you a permanent hire. They will offer you a substantially lower wage than what you were getting as a contractor. Be prepared negotiate your salary and to answer these following questions from the in-house recruiter:

    1. What did you make last year?
    2. What did you make the year before that?
    3. What is your AML experience? (excluding this experience)

    The amounts you give will dictate what you'll be offered.

    If you don't take the offer, you'll contract will not be renewed. It's a take it or get fired type of scenario. So, you'll be replaced with newer contract workers that make more $ than you, the person who has been there for a period of time. It doesn't make sense and instills a sense of disloyalty, but this is what they do.

    Private Equity Fund Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of about 6 people, for 30 minutes each. Not one break for three hours. The first interviewer asked me questions specifically about the role, then proceeded to ask me a technical question, with a scenario and to write out journal entries. The next interviewer used his entire interview to answer questions, he didn't ask one question, just simply told me to "Keep asking him more questions". Luckily, I was very curious about the position. The rest simply asked personal questions about my background, and what made me a good fit for the position. After the interview, I never heard back from JP Morgan or the recruiter. I followed up with the recruiter, as well as the hiring managers, and received no answer.

    Casual first interview then second interview at main headquarters in Phoenix. I was told that I just needed a month to ramp up then I would be making at least 70,000 and upwards from there. I made less in the 8 months I was employed here than I made on my paper route in high school. The role was embellished and no one was honest about the true job situation or pay.
