    Loan Processor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Face to face interview at Los Angeles office. Very long and boring. I thought that the interviewer and panel had no clue what they were doing and had no industry knowledge. It was a joke to be honest.

    Reasons for Declining

    Bank Teller- JPM Chase Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through indeed.com for the chase teller position. I went in and spoke with the branch manager and he explained that you have to pass the assessment in order to be considered. The chase career site will send you an email immediately if you failed the assessment. For all the locations you apply for it will, immediately. The email says "after careful consideration, we regret...." After the assessment the screen will say (if you failed) "you are not eligible to for the bank teller position at this time." After speaking with the manager, about a few days later I received an email from a recruiter telling me to take a video interview through an app called "HireVue" I did the interview through my iPhone and it consisted of 11 questions. This substitutes as the phone interview. The recruiter can view your video interview as many times as they like. The next day I recieved a call from the branch manager wanting to schedule me for an interview. I dressed extremely professional. Hair in ponytail, slicked back, black pencil skirt, pantyhose, blazer. Now, I dressed in black because chase only wants black blazers or suit with their blue. After the interview the branch manager asked me if I could immediately go over to a different branch and do an interview with the assistant manager, the same day. The manager told me I should here something by Friday, but Friday came and no call. I waited until Monday and called the branch mananger. Left a message and he called back wanting to schedule a third interview with the district mananger. Two days later I received a call from the same recruiter and told me I was offered the position. I went through a series of emails, accepting the offer and so on, pre-employment.

    Relationship Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Van Nuys, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J.P. Morgan (Van Nuys, CA).

    Interview

    Online application contained assessment questions such as financial calculations, management decisions, etc. My background is financial services so the questions were quite easy and didn't find them too difficult. The assessment questionnaire must be included with the online application to be considered for the position. The application process was frustrating. You were given about an hour to complete the assessment, which I completed, given that my computer was slow. I received the email confirming they received my application, then 4 minutes later, I received the letter of denial. I thought it was unreasonable and insensitive for JP Morgan Chase to treat potential applicants this way: taking and hour to complete their assessment and online application, only to be rejected 4 minutes later.

    Interview Questions

    • Assessment questionnaire included mortgage and lending calculations, savings interest percentages, management situations, etc.   Answer Question
