Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Canoga Park, CA) in November 2011.

Interview

I had a mutual contact so my process may have been a little more simple than the average person. I applied online with a req number and received a call from a recruiter the next couple of days. Had a phone screening and than called in for a one on one with a branch manager. After that, I went in for a meeting with the district manager. Was hired the next couple of days after.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Chicago, IL) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The recruiter was nice at first but when I told her that I was only interested in management opportunities she scoffed at the idea. She discredited me for all the work I had done with my previous bank as a branch manager and said that I would need double the years of experience to come in from the outside as a branch manager or even assistant manager. She continued to try and shove the personal banker role down my throat even when I repeatedly told her that it was not what I was looking for. She then told me in a snotty tone of voice to send my resume to her and we would go from there. Because of her poor attitude and her putting me down I did not forward my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked right off the bat how much I was expecting to get paid if an offer was made. Most of the time that question is more towards the end.   2 Answers

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Sacramento, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    One interview that lasted approximately 30-45 minutes. There were a lot of situational questions to see how you would react. They will ask you about "working the lobby", which is where you approach a customer in the lobby as they enter, are waiting in line, filling out deposit/withdrawal slips, etc., and talk to them with the goal of bringing them back to your desk to make a sale. Customer service and sales techniques are priority.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase, either accept or decline.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J.P. Morgan (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    For the initial interview, I was asked many questions ranging from "why do you want to work for JPMorganChase" to "sell me my pen". The initial interview was extremely friendly and very laid back, I have to admit I was nervous but the Branch Manager was good at smoothing easing my fears. The second interview was a panel interview, it was with the District Manager, there I was asked basically the same questions. To me, it seemed more of a reassurance that the Branch Manager had made a good assessment. of me.

    Reasons for Declining

    I wasn't looking to move to Chicago due to personal reasons. The job posting on my campus career listings did not specify that it was for that specific location.

    Interview

    Started off with pre-night at a Bar... very laid back. Talk amongst 3 branch managers and 1 assistant branch manager. really chill and cool people, saw them at the bars later that night. first interview was really easy, had to sell a pen at the end. 2nd interview was at chase tower in chicago a couple weeks later. It was a day full of a couple presentations, lunch, and an interview with 2 branch managers. 2nd interview questions were pretty much the same as the first. only difference was we role played and I had to approach a "customer" who was at the atm and bring them back to my office

    My friends and I took Chase online assessment and all of us failed it. The math problems were easy but other questions were not very clear. We gave different answers and yet none of us managed to pass the test. Very weird.

    Interview

    when submitting an application I was required to pass a test consisting of multiple-choice questions.
    Most of the questions are about loans, mortgages, etc. Not difficult, but you have to be very fast. Otherwise they will send you an email automatically that they will keep your CV in their file system :(
