Investment Banking Associate Interview

Investment Banking Associate

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details – Process involves a lot of networking, both with your school's alumni base and with people in the group you're interested in. It is almost impossible to get into the bank if you don't come from a target school or don't find alumni who will push you through.

Interview Question – Variety of technical questions - Walk me through a DCF, Qualities of a good LBO, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Coming through the MBA recruiting process there is very little negotiation. You come in with a class of 60-80 other MBAs all at the same salary/signing bonus/start date

Part Time Teller Interview

Part Time Teller
Vallejo, CA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in May 2014.

Interview Details – Online test, then video interview. The online test was basically common sense, and personality test type questions, to make sure you aren't the kind of person that will have a meltdown if asked to make change or deal with a cranky customer. The video interview was basically to save everyone time.

Interview Question – Can't remember. It's a bit unnerving, though I can understand the need for the video interview.   Answer Question

Systems Architect Interview

Systems Architect
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in February 2010.

Interview Details – Pretty standard process with multiple rounds of interviews. It takes a little longer than most companies because of the size of the company and the decision-ing process requires multiple levels of approval. Overall it was not too painful and I got to speak to a wide range of people with which I ended up interacting.

Interview Question – Please describe a complex system that you have designed?   Answer Question
