    Interview Details

    There were two 30 minute interviews. I had mine back to back. I was not in town and they allowed the interviews to be over the phone. However, other interns told me they came in for their interviews. Interviews were pretty straight forward. I got a call for an offer only two days after the phone interviews.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They gave two weeks to accept or decline.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Recruiter called a week after the final round of interviews.

    The questions were mainly behavioral type stuff with an occasional technical thrown in here and there. Prior to your interview, you should definitely look at the specific questions that other people have posted. Some are repeated throughout different interviews.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview during august for their Audit Analyst Program. Interviewers were very unorganized, at first I was told I was being interviewed for their Financial Analyst Program. However, once I got to the interview I was told I was now being interviewed for another program. The interviewers were fairly nice, gave an overview of the program followed by a 30 minutes interview of mainly Behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews followed by an in-person (Half day, 4 people)

    Location was in Brooklyn--they recently moved a lot of people to MetroTech Center. I didn't like the area surrounding the office, but the office itself was pretty nice. Pretty quiet, low-key atmosphere. There is no business presence in Brooklyn as far as I can tell, so no trading floors etc.

    People were nice and relaxed.
