Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan.

Interview Details

Fairly straightforward two-round interview, the first with a handful of VPs and MDs in the FIG group, the second round with all my future team members in the Broker/Dealer subsector. Nothing out of the ordinary, no brainteaser or 'gotcha' questions; a fairly stress-free and pleasant experience, geared more towards determining personal compatibility than technical skill.

Interview Questions
  • In the second round my MD asked about my heritage and veered a little into politics, slightly uncomfortable but overall not a big deal   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Nothing to negotiate at the analyst level

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at J.P. Morgan in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, applicants had to go through resume screening then 2 rounds of interviews (one via phone, and another one in-person at the regional office). HR was extremely helpful and responsive to email inquiries, and did a wonderful job of following up with your interview and application process. The 2 interviews consisted both "fit" and technical questions, including basic accounting and finance principles (earnings reports, DCF and WACC calculation, comps...) as well as a few brainteasers and guesstimates. The interviewers were all VP level or above (some EDs and even MDs) and they were all very friendly and professional. I was very impressed with how they portrayed their company and its work culture!
