    30 minute interviews with other EAs and Bankers. General what if questions and hypothetical questions to see how you deal with problems, tasks, etc. You also meet with the HR manager.

    Applications Developer Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through online and got a call back a few days later from an I.T recruiter, she took my information and asked basic questions about my area of knowledge (java, unix, etc). She sent my info to another person who scheduled an interview the next week. I had two 30 mins interviews back to back (for a total of an hour). Not too difficult. Still waiting to hear back from them regarding a decision.

    Interview Questions

    • They began with easy/simple questions and went from there. I found that they can use your answer to generate their next question(s). For example: "name a few algorithms that you know" - sorting, searching... "name a few sorting algorithms" - quick-sort, merge, heap, bubble, radix... "name a few searching algorithm" - linear, binary search... (then they'd ask another question based on the previous answers you just gave). The same rule applied to any hard skill/programming language I had on my resume. They began simple and expanded. If you don't know an answer, simply tell them. Do not try to b.s your way through an answer, it'll be obvious and it'll only hurt your chances. Expect behavioural questions as well. For example "describe to me a time when...", and it could be anything from - you had to work in a difficult team/group or you had to face a challenge and what you did to try to overcome it.   1 Answer

    Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Please be wary of applying for multiple positions at JP Morgan. I applied for two positions and interviewed for both positions which were for different teams within the company. Both hiring managers sent offers for both positions. Electronically, I accepted the offer for the position I wanted and declined the second offer. I contacted the hiring leader of the position I decined to thank her for her time and let her know I would be pursuing another position at the comapany - which I thought was the courteous thing to do. Within 2 days iIstarted to receive really rude emails from the recruiter for the position i declined telling me that I displayed "lack of candor" in the interview process and both offers would be declined. I currently work for another fortune 500 company and candidates often choose between 1 or more offers. Apparently JP Morgan would like for candidates to select the first offer that comes their way. Be very wary when applying at this company. i was one day away from putting in my 2 weeks notice at my current job when all of this transpired.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions. A common one was "how do you handle a difficult person"?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was rigid. One offer added the bonus into the salary as a second item to meet my requirements but was still a few k short of what I desired.
